Why is Gambit not a member of the Avengers?

Why is Gambit not a member of the Avengers? Gambit should join the team and become a permanent member. I think it would be really cool to see Gambit work with Captain America and the Red Hulk.

Lol Gambit an Avenger before Storm? Hell most X-Men don't trust him what makes you think Cap would? I love Gambit 3rd favorite X-Man but unless they ruin his character and make him some disturbed Robin Hood I don't see it ever happening.

Yeah I don't see Gambit as an Avenger only reason he stuck around in the X-men was because he liked the company don't think he really had any interest in their cause.

@Blood1991: If the red hulk can become an avenger anything can happen. The red hulk attacked the white house and it didn't stop him from becoming a member.

Gambit fits best in an almost outlaw type setting. The X-Men are pitted against the establishment enough so that his membership makes sense. Avengers are to white collar for Gambit to have any sort of lasting affiliation. He should probably be a member of X-Force if anything.

the question is, why WOULD he be on the Avengers?

#12 Posted by Green Skin (2932 posts) - - Show Bio

There are a few X-Men that could be great Avengers, the only problem is there names are Storm and Iceman....not Gambit.  :-P

I don't see him joining.

@The Stegman: Because Gambit is the coolest Marvel character they have.

I could best picture gambit with the x-men, some other "Outlaw" group, or by himself. He just doesn't seem like the Avenger type. They don't seem "Edgy" enough, if that makes sense.

@quiksilver70777: yeah, they're gonna let Gambit, a known thief and criminal into their ranks just cause he's cool....
#17 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (13644 posts) - - Show Bio

multiple reasons 
 
 
Red Hulks term is just an example of Bendis kooky ideas and fluctuating writing talent 
 
Gambit has never been invited to join the avengers and wouldnt want to even if they did, he's still trying to settle down into the x-men

Gambit  has always had that air of mystery and sometimes seems even some of the X-men don't trust him completely, I'm sure the only reason he hangs around the X-men now is because of the people he likes and the people he calls friends.

Wolverine is also Marvel's most popular character save spider-man.  
#23 Posted by daredevil21134 (12394 posts) - - Show Bio

I rather have him then Wolverine

#24 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Because Gambit's too good for them... And Cap doesn't trust him. 

#25 Posted by gravitypress (2069 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think he would fit well.

#26 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't see him as an Avenger... but then again I don't see him as a Champion either :p

The ONLY reason Red Hulk is on the Avengers is because Bendis wanted a new Sentry, nothing more. Like you said, he attacked the freakin' White House. Even if Red Hulk was trying to "redeem" himself, he should first start off on a team like the Thuderbolts and earn his chance to be an Avenger, like oh I don't know...maybe SONGBIRD -__-

Other then if he was getting paid loads why would he want to be an Avenger?
I could see him in the Secret Avengers as it would be good to have a stealthy master theif to get intel on whoever. 
They let Red Hulk in so i guess it's an open door policy......

THANK YOU! I'm not saying I want Gambit to be an Avenger..frankly I miss the Avengers pre Spider-Man and Wolverine, but if Wolverine and Red Hulk can be Avenger, it would seem that anybody can be one. I would like to see Gambit used more in the X-Men titles aside from the X-23 books (although those are awesome!)

By that logic, Wolverine shouldn't be an Avenger..ESPECIALLY since he's the leader of X-force of which you're suggesting Gambit would make a better member of. And for the life of me, i still don't understand how Red Hulk is an Avenger.

And? I dont think he should be on the Avengers either. A feeling shared by Steve Rogers when Tony recruited Logan in the first place ;)

I agree with the idea of him being a good fit for the Secret Avengers but still think Gambit would turn down membership offer.

@xerox_kitty: Hurtful :-p lol, Gambit is just misunderstood. I think Gambit has what it takes to be an Avenger.
