    The solicit for issues #3 mentions The Scrambler. Can we expext to see more Marauders or even Mr.Sinister? I always liked Gambit`s shady history with them.

    I hope they emphasis on his h2h skills cause most writers treat him as a one trick pony restrict him only to card tricks .

    In the run up to the mini you referenced themes such as oceans 11 which are driven by clever, sophisticated and wity plots. But the covers and some of the previews feel distinctly more like pink panther style slapstick comedy. Which of these will the story more closely resemble or will it be a sort of mash up?

    I'm really excited about this buddy book, these two characters (Deadpool and Gambit) running amok is amusing to me. How deep will you be able to delve into with their history? Will there be some nuances that we learn about them both by having to interact with each other?
    What do you think is the best thing from writing these two incredibly morally grey but do the right thing and fun characters together?

    Gambit is a divisive character, with a lot of fans and lots of haters. Why do you think that is? And what aspects of the character did you respond to (and which did you shy away from) while creating this story?

    Liked previews for issue 1.
    Why have you decided to state Gambit`s hypnotic charm as power? A lot of fans prefer him to be a natural charmer.

    Good question hypnotic suggestion is something that can really open a can of worms... as with all skills that mess with the mind it raises the question of which is real and which is someone bending someone elses will esp with his reputation for various kinds of mischief.

    Both my questions hinge on the fact that we haven't been told if this is miniseries is present day or all takes place in the past.

    Gambit is the literal King of Thieves. Will his position as the head of the Thieves Guild be addressed or recognized?

    Gambit has always been an X-Man. Unfortunately he's been out of the main rosters for a long time. We know Deadpool has been playing Avenger over in UA, will we get to get an explanation as to why Gambit is running scams while the X-Men are all trying to save their race from extinction?
