Call me shallow, but I always liked him because he's hot, his costumes don't suck, & he has long hair (sometimes).

Gambit is a great character, I've always like him, not just because he's charming and always looks hot.  He has had the power to charge people just by looking at them and he chose to depower himself with the help of Dr Sinister. He can also charge people by touching them, which he also choses not to do.  Instead he uses his agility, dexterity and skill with his bo staff.  I respect him for that, there are few characters in the marvel universe would do the same :)

I LOVES me some Gambit!!! I actually just watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine tonight & despite what many people told me.... Gambit wasn't thaaaaaat bad. Don't get me wrong, there was Plenty of room for improvement but he was only in that movie for the sake of adding another character anyway so it didn't really matter what the hell he said or did. Although I was bummed that he didn't say "Cherie" once!!!
What the Hell Taylor Kitsch!?

Bah Gambit would be way cooler if most writters wouldn't just use babelfish to translate some random words that doesnt always make a sense.

 It an alternate reality but still...

Gambits powers rock ass even though they are still not explained very well.

He can charge things until they get unstable and explode.
colour yourself informed.

Hi there and gotta say i love Gambit. Been a long time lurker here so i decide to finally make a account and post here. Right now just wanna say how much i like Gambit and hoping to see more of him in and outside of the X-books. Also i'm thinking of setting up a Amalgam Contest dealing with Gambit. Any ideals

True maybe over who's cooking.

2 years with no activity? So sad but hey Gambit is by far the best character in comics! He doesn't get the credit he deserves.

Can we get some more feats here? I love some fanboying (or fangirling) but I like these threads to have applicable feats.

I respect Gambit even if the editors at Marvel do not.

DC does not have a character like him.

Sad but true, the X-Men '92 comic writer (yeah, right) Chris Sims was asked

Cyclops and Gambit aren't the only '90s X-Men that fans are asking about. Neko wants to know how you will write the X-Men's Ragin' Cajun, Gambit.

Looking forward to this book the most. Will Gambit be the mysterious guy he should be? And how much of a wild card type role do you have planned for Gambit?

Sims: Gambit will be a scumbag.

"Everyone can relax. Gambit... will be a scumbag." Now that I've filled my "X-Men" Paraphrase Quota, we can move on to a question from FlawedCoil82 about the characters' iconic looks.

... Marvel just keeps letting these hack douchebags crap all over their characters...

@lsrotj Thanks for the quote. Sucks that the marvel comic editors hate Gambit. It probably is in their writer interviewing process. What do you think about Gambit?

Writer: I love him!

Editors: Okay. We'll give you a call.

Writer: I hate him. He's a scumbag.

Editors: You're hired!

@sincereagape: Most writers really liked Gambit., which is why he got his very own solo series that lasted for nearly a decade. It wasn't a sell-out like Wolverine, but it was still successful. Some of the editors didn't like him though, especially Chris Sims. He just wouldn't shut up about Gambit. Everytime he would make an X-Men post, he HAD to always bring Gambit into it. On his review of the show, he's constantly bashing him calling him a "scumbag" which got really annoying very quickly. He didn't seem to like the show that much either. I think he's a stupid excuse for an editor. Claremont had good amount of respect for Gambit, although he originally wanted him to be the villain, which unfortunately, he kind of was in Evolution. I much prefer him as a hero.
