  • Stop Everything and Watch Gambit on X-Men: The Animated Series

    The casual X-Men fan probably first learned of the mutants in 2000 when Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan spelled it out for them on the big screen. But actually, there was so much that came before. First came the comic books, starting way back in 1963. Then came X-Men: The Animated Series. The 1990s cartoon is, admittedly, how I first stumbled upon the terrific cast of rag-tags that make up the X-Men. So I figured I’d take this moment to […]

None of my friends knew anything about it and I felt like a geek. My dad tried to have me play with his friends. But I was shy and afraid of losing to the grown-ups. So I only ever played when he made me, and only remembered the rules […]

  • Origins I

    Before he was Gambit, he was Remy Etienne LeBeau from New Orleans, Louisiana. For those of you who don’t know the history of the Cajun sensation, check out the video here: Remy had a tough early life. Kidnapped from his parents right after his birth, Remy was an orphan on the street until he was taken in by the head of the Thieves’ Guild. But this was not his home for too long.

  • Gambit movie trailer?

    When it comes to rooting for a full-fledged film on Gambit, I am the first in line. I found this cool trailer online today that’s made from clips from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It probably doesn’t look anything like what a biopic on Gambit would be, but it gives me a chance to get back on my soap box and give a few of my reasons why the producers in Hollywood should get on this STAT: – Gambit is a complex […]

    Gambit + Rogue = ????

    I’ve already written a lot about why Gambit makes for such a thrilling character. He’s a multi-faceted hero with a dark back story that causes many of the other X-Men to be wary of him. His rough childhood and complicated history are part of what make him such an asset to the X-Men. They are also, however, what make him a liability. But his complications come from within.
