    Default The King of Thieves - Gambit Appreciation 2022

    Welcome to the Gambit Appreciation 2022 Thread!



    Art by Jim Lee

    The X-Man and King of Thieves first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #266. He's since been a regular team member on different X-teams and had several solo books. Currently, he is married to Rogue and a part of the Excalibur team written by Tini Howard and has an upcoming book written by Chris Claremont!

    Some of his most essential reads include:

    Uncanny X-Men #266, 267

    X-Men Vol 2 (issue 33, in particular)

    Any of his solo series (but I personally prefer the Nicieza series and the Asmus series)

    Mr. and Mrs. X

    Rogue & Gambit

    Astonishing X-Men by Marjorie Liu

    X-Treme X-Men Vol 1 by Claremont

    X-23 by Marjorie Liu

    I know I had the same sentiment last year, but let's hope 2022 is better than 2021!

    Happy new year.

    Reminder Gambit was officially knighted by Excalibur and the Queen. But knighted in a way that only Gambit could

    I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I love Remy more without much association with Rogue. All of my favorite Gambit stories are all without her. Not that I dislike their relationship, but I feel like she holds him down from further development. Im glad they are on separate teams now and am looking forward to his ongoing solo and more awesome Remy moments in 2022! Cheers!

    What are the odds that Tini ever read this despite the fact that she is writing him in "Knights of X". I'm guessing zero.

    Looking forward to see what Claremont can do for him.

    I'm not sure if that's all that unpopular anymore. The Rogue/Gambit relationship seems to be pretty divisive among fans of both characters. I'm biased, but I think they can be together on the same team without either one dragging the other down but it comes down to good writing (which I don't think either has had in the last couple years lol)

    Gambit needs to be in the fore front of X-MEN like Cyclops and Wolverine are. Why do writers keep maltreating him. In the last maybe 10-15 years, Rogue has pretty much been a star why Gambit more like the kept man.

    Pretty much. He has a solid fanbase, so if they did, his books would sell. I just don't think there are any writers/editors that care enough to do much with him right now, which is why we're getting CC on a Gambit book

    Agreed! It's hard not to blame a character for draining the life out of the other, but really the blame should fall on poor writing.

    How Gambit is written when around Rogue:
