    Gambit was a relatively new character at the time and his age wasnt locked down. He could have been 18 for all we knew

    As much as I respect and admire Chris Claremont for everything he did for X-Men, it's ideas like this that confirm the editors were right to let him go and reign him in during the latter part of his tenure. I honestly can't see ideas like Gambit and Kitty resonating at this point. They wouldn't even be the same characters if he'd taken them down the path. I think the same applies to his plans for Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, and Storm. He clearly had attitudes towards certain characters that informed his stories surrounding them and I don't think they would've worked in the long run if he'd pursued them. The success of the X-Men throughout the 90s, even after he left, is proof of that.

    It is known that he intented Jean and Logan to be together at some point. Even in comic con when someone asked him about Jeans true love he said that in his mind Jean mabye loves Scot and Logan mabye loves Mariko but in the end of time you have immortal wolverine and immortal phoenix so they will end up together forever because the others will die eventually. I dont know what plans he had for Storm and Cyclops...Pair them? They had chemistry. After Jean died and before Maddie show up. I remember when they fought Sidri with corsair that i was thinking they could make a beautiful couple those two.

    I found Chris' many unexplored couples in 616* - Rogue/Colossus, even potentially Kitty and Gambit - far more interesting than most of the longstanding ones. He also had the balls to break the seal and pair Logan and Ororo for real in Reload years before the line caught up to him. They're still my OTP for them. It just makes sense!
