    Don, editors and Marvel just don`t care. They are probably too busy with dancing to Hickman's tune.

    Yes. Gambit by Nicieza and Skroce are collected in X-Men: Gambit: The Complete Collection Vol. 1.

    Rest of issues of this run are collected in X-Men: Gambit: The Complete Collection Vol. 2.

    To make it worse: Gambit charged his hands and did nothing with them. Next panel he and Apocalypse is back on the ground and Apocalypse simply hammer him down with one punch. So we didn't even get to see how that would have worked.

    Charged hands did nothing in issue 1 already.

    I'm almost done with Excalibur I'll finish the first arc and then I'm gone. I kept telling myself maybe next issue it will get better for Gambit but it's time for me to accept that Tini doesn't get the character or she simply doesn't have the ability to write him decently.
    At this point I'm hoping that the book will get cancelled as soon as possible and then maybe we get a relaunch.

    I hope after second arc it will end and characters will move to other projects and writers. Even limbo would be better.

    I missed that the first time around. I went back to that cringy scene and there it is. Apocalypse just catches his fist and the energy sizzle out. This is horrible! What's the point? Either they don't know how Gambit's powers work or they are trying to give him new uses. It's useless anyway since it does nothing. I know it's pointless to get upset. They don't care. Yet here I am marveling at the pointless stupidity of it.

    It's so sad for me to agree with that, but yeah that's the truth. At least in limbo he wouldn't be written so badly.
    Compare those 3 pages written by Nicieza you posted and the entirety of Tini's Excalibur and it hard to believe that is the same character

    Goddess no. I've been trying to be optimistic about this book but this last issue almost broke me.

    That's what I'm hoping too. Have this be another Astonishing X-Men situation so Gambit can be written by someone else in another book

    Guys, the charged fists aren't new. He used that move on Spiral in MMX. It was actually pretty awesome.

    But yeah, I don't like seeing Remy portrayed as being this hot-tempered. Now yes, I can think of plenty of older issues where he had some of this sort of behavior. But he's very much grown out of it.
