Lighten up, will ya? They aren't gonna completely ignore the fact that Rogue is THE love of his life. Like it or not, she is. And it's not like he said that she's going to be a regular or something.

First and foremost, the pinnacle "X-Man turns into Death" story was told with Archangel. They should have left that there instead of rolling out a new Death every few years. There's nothing left to tell down that road.

The residual Death persona is even more of a mess, since some writers seem fine with addressing it while others obviously have no interest in it. Gambit's character (in his prime) had an inner darkness that didn't need to be made so literal. It's part of what made his character great. He had heroic bits... but he could also be very cold, calculating and amoral.

We'll see how the new series takes him. I do hope they give him more motivation to than "he's a thief... so he steals stuff. Because."
Okay, fair enough.

Hey, Taylor Kitsch looks like a younger (better-looking ) Josh Holloway so I guess we're both right.

Yeah i'm not sure what's been changed either, iirc all that's gone is the head sock, i don't think he's worn pink for awhile.

We'll have to see the actual issues first - the art on the cover doesn't necessarily reflect what Gambit's going to be wearing on a day-to-day.

That said, it's mainly the headsock. When your hero's trademark is his duster there's just not a lot else you can tweak.

Well, going to a more all black theme rather than the magenta accents on his pants was a big upgrade as far as I was concerned, back in the days of Extreme.

Which was exactly what I was gonna say! I loved this costume the best! As much as the fuschia Jim Lee costume is iconic, this is a far bette look for him!

And Katie, I'll give you your Taylor Kitsch. After seeing John Carter in 3-D, I'm all about the Kitsch! (to the embarrasment of my 10 year daughter!)

Kitsch was my first pic for Gambit from the moment I saw him in the Covenant! Gotta love them skimpy bathing suits!

It needs more color. I think had the stripes been red like the rest of the X-treme team, it would have looked better

Perhaps but the way I see it magenta doesn't exactly help out the whole stealth/sneaky thief option, lol. It's kinda loud.

What do you guys think are Gambit's top 5 books? I mean books as in Volumes, not issues.

Also really looking forward to the new one coming out.

I'll be grabbing that at my shop when it comes out. I doubt it will sell out before I get there.

Geez, has he even had five? His first ongoing with the New Son was great. His first mini was good. I can only think of one other mini and one other ongoing, neither of which I read.

I'd prefer actual issues. Off the top of my head:

X-Men 33 - tale from the past with Sabretooth
Gambit 1 (1st ongoing) - Versus X-Cutioner
Gambit 24 (1st ongoing) - Versus New Son
Daken: Dark Wolverine 7 or 8 - Awesome fight with Daken
Uncanny X-Men 312 or 313 - Versus Phalanx
