I forget which issue it is but the one Apple posted with the close up of Gambit with the 3 cards is great and Endangered Species X-men would all be in the run for me normally.

    But for my 5 I think

    1. Ultimate X-men

    The writer of the book hated Gambit and didn't want him in the book but he took a two issue vacation and they wrote a Gambit story there. And it gave me one of my favorite covers. I'm a huge minimalist art fan. Any art that can convey a character with the least amount of details is always beautiful to me. There was also a cover for Deadpool v Gambit I was thinking about cause it was very minimalist but it just seemed repetitive of this one.

    2. X-men Legacy #245


    It must be the American in me but I love an AU Gambit with a gun lol "it's got a good spread"

    3. X-men vs the fantastic 4


    Gambit as the human torch. It's so cool
    Really love Gambit as Torch option! Surprisedto see it. Kinda funny thatvit was written by Cebulski.

    A lot of people rag on the artwork of Uncanny at this time but I personally loved this kind of art and man this cover. It's so good.

    5. Hellbound


    Death Gambit. The gambit that didn't pay off. I personally wished he had shorter hair but man this cover art is really good. And the little detail of him being big while the people in the corner are small was a nice touch
    I just love charged bo! When it glows it always looks so cool!

    He must get his own book. Replace Shaw at Council and rule all black market. Also must use his Wolrd Guilds and King of Thieves statues to support Krakoa. He can steal any information, object or ther things needed. Easily better then Hellfire.

    Must be a double agent. He shouldn't trust council and check everything. Show everyone that they are liars and rules are not true.

    When he finds out real evidence, he should start a rebelion with other characters like Mystique, Logan, maybe Cyke, etc.

    I like that. I wouldnt think to give him a position of power but maybe thats the thing that could elevate him

    I really think there's a missed opportunity to use him in Hellions considering his ties to the Maraurders. Hopefully he does manage to pop up

    I like Hellions. Not a fan that they retconned Greycraw as not a clone but it is a good book. I think it is planned as a limited series so I doubt that Gambit will be there. Would love to see Remy helping Greycraw with redemption because he had the same situation and even was left to die because of it. Also they are kinda old friends.

    Fingers crossed that after Swords he will get a new book with a new writer that can use him well. But at this point I am sure that Hickman doesn't like him so I don't expect anything Gambit centric anytime soon.

    That's what I was thinking. Gambit has to be the distrustful one. It plays into his character and it allows him to have his own mini story.

    The only concern would be Gambit would do all the leg work to set up the rebellion then other members would be brought into his resistance and he would be turned into an exposition character who explains everything while the new characters become the focus of the story and again pushed to the back. But yes I would like to see him organize stuff and prepare for the worst as we see him do that all the time on heists.

    Dang, even if he doesn't get his own book, having him replace Shaw would be a really good idea. They really should take advantage of his resources as the King of Thieves.

    I haven't read enough of the other books to make an informed opinion, but it seems like the Marauders would be an obvious choice. Otherwise I've always wanted to see him on an X-Force book

    Throw a card anywhere you're bound to find a writer who didn't like writing him. The tv show understood Gambit the best surprisingly and that was a kids show lol

    Ooohhhhh, yeah! I love that angle - him replacing Shaw. Give the Hellfire leadership back to Emma and let the Thieves Guild join up in an uneasy alliance to fill Shaw's role. Let Remy and Emma chew the page up snarking on and distrusting each other.

    Thats soemthing that works with Emma and Shaw, given their history, but wouldnt so much with Gambit. If Gambit is given the seat on the council, he really shouldnt just step in and fill the same role that Shaw did complete with his dynamic with Emma. They should utilize his connections but write their relationship differently in terms of how it sets the backdrop for the book

    Well it would clearly be a different relationship than her and Shaw had, since Remy isn't in the Hellfire Club and wasn't ever Emma's superior or abuser. If anything, Emma has always looked down on him and they definitely don't like each other or trust each other, but for entirely different reasons.

    I could see Remy taking the role for his underworld connections, if maybe not the council seat. It would be an uncomfortable alliance, which I love. It'd actually be nice to see someone question some of the decisions on the Quiet Council for once or be suspicious. I would actually give Rogue the Council seat and Remy leadership of Shaw's former operations, but that's just me.

    I like this as well. I think it would also be great to then see Emma and Rogue sniping at each other. The little bits we got in X-Men Black was amazing

    I did too! It's tough because Gambit has had so many great covers.

    Yep, same here.

    Same here regarding Clay Mann covers. Issues 8 through 12 are some of the best covers i have ever seen period. I am only going to go with one of them for my list, but it was really tough not including all of them.

    Okay, here is my top 5 favorite covers(and I am only posting the image of the issues from my list that have not been posted yet)-

    5. X-Men: Curse of the Mutants: Storm and Gambit #1 Variant cover by Chris Bachalo. This is the very first variant cover that I actively went out of my way to get. I was captivated by the artwork and composition of the cover and had to have it. Once I saw it advertised online I let my lcs know that I wanted it ahead of time in case they got a copy. When they did and held it for me, I was perfectly willing to pay over cover price for it(as is often the case for incentive variants), which is not something I do often.

    4. X-Treme X-Men #31. Great cover that perfectly captures these two characters.

    3. Gambit(2012) #8. The Clay Mann cover I went with. This cover just has so much going on and is so fun, I love it. Great image of Gambit throwing some cards too, which I always enjoy.

    2. Uncanny X-Men #266. Iconic image! Such a great cover. I love the vines and the colors on this cover. Magic was captured with this one and I am so glad that Gambit's full first appearance was graced with such great artwork. Also, as a big fan of corner box images on older comics, this one has one of my favorites.

    1. Uncanny X-Men #350. Absolutely love this cover! Just spectacular! Madureira at his best and I love the shine and colors of the cover in person.I'm
