    It always bugged me that Rogue didn't know that. Like Gambit would ever, ever refuse to touch her. He would get the cloud herpes five times over if it meant he could.

    Time to vote hard for MMX. Even if I weren't such a Romy fan, I always stan continuity and characterization, and that book had both.

    I ... I don't know what to make of this preview. We get it, Remy's having a hard time and getting pretty impatient. Got anything else to show us? Guess we'll see.

    Also, preview for Excalibur #4 is out: https://community.cbr.com/showthread...IBUR-4-Preview

    Gambit actually is better written, but Howard doesn't get that he would never daydream about saving Rogue. He's attracted to ferociously competent, strong women who are capable of saving themselves.

    Right? And also technically he did get to kind of save her once from the Excutioner and sort of from her Hectatomb coma as well.

    Feels like more character research was needed here.

    I mean, he's being a bit over-the-top hot headed at this point as well. Seems more like 90's Remy. But whatevs.

    You're totally right. Gambit isn't the sort of person who'd usually escalate an angry crowd. He's very much the type who'd charm his way through them and calm them down.

    I was just excited that he got to do something that wasn't moping or whining. I was so disappointed by #3....

    You know, I think #2 was worse for me so far as the moping went. But yeah, I don't really expect him to lose his cool with a crowd like this. I do find that 3rd panel sweet when he says there's no one he'd rather talk to. But so far, we haven't seen him do anything to solve the problem either. Maybe it's implied that he was trying to solve it before they left Krakoa? But as an audience we've only seen him mopey and angry. If he even SAID he had tried this or that or talked to Beast or Forge or whoever etc it would make him seem like an active participant in this plot.

    I mean, it's not awful characterization or a terrible storyline, but we've had so much better not so long ago. I can only hope it turns the corner. I really, really don't want to drop this book. I'm trying so hard to love it. Just give me one or two good panels to let me love it!

    I agree with this a 100%, just a little bit of context and some simple explanations would make this book so much better.
    I can't wait for Rogue to be out of her coma to change things up. So far Tini's Gambit just feels off.

    100% agree. Iím conteplating dropping this too. I never felt like this during Milligans run(witch was horrendous), Carey or even bland Gage. Maybe I have changed. Maybe Tini just is writing another character instead of badly written Gambit. With the others I at least got mad. Here I just get bored and indifferent. Iím still hoping Tini will address that her Gambit isnít up to par yet, but sheís working on it. Worst case scenario she hasnít asked anyone competent and think that this is a Gambit well written.

    I always found Gambit’s handling of the Alt Right assholes in X-Men Red was like perfect. He shows up playful, flirts with dickholes, fuck with their tiki torches but then is about to throw down when the gun comes out.

    The preview - loved him commenting that Rogue is the person he wants to talk to most, even if she can’t respond. Lovely strokes of X-Men #204.

    I too am watching the Game Awards, and came here to post that.

    I've been on the edge of buying it, and the addition of those X-Men might push me over.
