    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.
    Okay, fair enough.

    Hey, Taylor Kitsch looks like a younger (better-looking :p) 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!)

    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. :p

    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.

    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
