    I really really really wanna say Storm, but Gambit has it hands down. While they both became thieves out of necessity, Storm only does it still out of necessity, while Gambit steals for pleasure at this point. And when you do something you like, it's not even work, it's art, at least for Remy.

    I voted Storm, but only because Lila Cheney (who stole the entire planet Earth) is not on the list for some reason.

    When did Lila stole planet earth?

    I voted Storm because her habilities were great since a young age and she uses them still for her missions. I would have voted her and Gambit, I loved his story of X-ternals from Age of Apocalypse but I only had 1 option

    Gambit, hands down. King of Thieves. It's in his title. Too bad Marvel's current writers don't remember that.

    I'll go with Gambit as Ro hasn't been thieving for a while and Gambit has developed a culture around it.



    I would vote for both if I could as Storm would be a close second.

    Fantomex, I can't think of any thing that Gambit could do in terms of stealing that Fantomex can't do better. I understand why people are picking Gambit out of people who are consider thieves Fantomex is best suited due to his powers.

    Was it a bust though. She freed herself of a man and still got what she wanted in the end.

    It's a 2-way between gambit and fantomex.
    gambit had more experience but Fantomex has the superior Skill-set and powers.Also he has less morals than even gambit.
    Gambit is a good thief but there are some places he simply cannot hope to breach.Fantomex on the other hand is much more versatile.He has his own space-ship and his illusions can fool almost anyone.specially with telepaths.Gambit would be caught but fantomex can still manage to with 2 of the worlds best

    Storm because she is the best at everything. Though it probably really is Gambit. But I'm still choosing the goddess.

    Gambit is better and he don't need space-ship or even use powers sometimes to steal something. He is the King of Thieves.

    Reamy already fooled and steal from best telepaths, Stark, X-Men, Mojo, Shiar etc.

    Also Gambit sneaked up on Fanto in Civil War 2. Stealth, baby.

    But that's what drags Fantomex down too. He's like that rich kid with private tutors who gets an A+ (not impressive!), but Gambit is like that poor kid with no help who gets an A+ (very impressive).

    I went with Gambit.

    Yeah, Gambit has to do with skills what Fantomex does with mutant powers: misdirection and subterfuge.

    Advantage, Gambit. At least IMO.

    Of course, having said that, it’s kind of like making the argument that Falcon is the better Captain America because he has no super soldier serum in his veins and therefore must train harder to be at peak physical condition. Not sure I agree with the argument in that case honestly. But Gambit has other powers that make him pretty badass, in addition to the honed skills he has which make him the X-men’s best thief. So it’s a bit apples to oranges in that regard...

    Gambit for sure, but Storm's no slouch either.

    I have nothing nice to say about Fantomex or his thieving skills, so I'll just keep that to myself lol
