Apocalypse

Did Apocalypse give gambit more power?

Probably, but I think we have to wait to find out exactly what. Usually those things are discovered slowly.PseudoSherlock 15:33, 19 May 2006 (EDT)

Remember when Angel join the Apocalypse? Apocalypse turned Angel into a powerful mutant(Metalic wings). So, hopefully Apocalypse change Gambit into a new powerful mutant.

But if Apocalypse gave Gambit greater power, isn't it logical that he can take it away, in such a manner as to destroy Gambit?

He should be able to take away the amount of power he gave to Gambit and leave Gambit with his original amount of power.

I really think that he never gave him new powers he just enhanced his powers like mister sinister did. But that also means that he would be able to take them away but that doesn't mean gambit wouldnt be able to beat him.

Apocalypse gave gambit the power to use a poison smoke and he cant take it away or he would have taken away angels powers. also the powers are given to him by a machine and not apocalypse him self.

But perhaps Sinister will be able to fix this. If he's going to try and get Gambit to work with him, he's got to have something Remy wants-a cure to the horseman thing would be just the ticket.

But as i do recall, Remy likes being a horseman! plus i think he looks cool in all black

Capture by Magneto?

Remy was subsequently captured and brought before a mock trial held by Magneto, the mutant master of magnetism, then disguised as Erik the Red. He was summarily cast out of the X-Men and was abandoned in the frozen wastes of Antarctica. Starving to death, Remy made his way back into Magneto's citadel where he came upon the psionic essence of a dead mutant named Mary Purcell. The wraith-like Mary bonded with him, allowing him to survive until he reached the Savage Land, a hidden jungle nestled in the icy wasteland. There, Remy struck a deal with the enigmatic being known as the New Sun. In exchange for passage back to America, Remy agreed to run errands for the New Sun.

I don't really understand what is going on there? Anyone that could fill me in? -Kas020, 23 June 2007

Hey

How come they never even showed gambit in the xmen movies? or is he part of something else? cuz if hes part of the xmen, he should be in there in like... every scene. --beast_bodder 20:43, 2 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree that he should have been in the movies, but they messed up the timeline with almost everything else, so why should we be surprised. His name was on a list of inmates in the 2nd movie though.

I read dat there was not point putting the cajun in the movies bacause he would just get camio shots anyway and would not do him justice, so it was better to put the cajun in future films where his role is most likely to be bigger and pleasing more of his fans, giving Gambit the justice he deserves. Theres no point wasting an ace character with silly camio shots anyway, ide rather wait to see Gambit wid a major role gettin dat spotlight dat he deserves.

I think its best Remy was left out, x-men 3 had alot of new characters added anyway, so gambit would definetly not of got any justice coz his part would have been really small like most of the characters. at least marvel have still kept one great character to put in the future movies, keeping fans more excited and anxious to see them. and with gambit being such an awsome character, the movie could make loads if his story pleased fans, which i think they could do a good job of since hes been out of the last 3 films. his intro to the movie world could be amazing if done right. he could be bad at first relizing hes done wrong and finds hes rightful place in the x-men team falling in love with rouge. could be awsome. Gambit is my fav anyway so if he is in the movies and his part is great ill be going to see the movie non stop. woudnt it be great to c wolvie and gambit having a fight scene coz thy never got along anyway.


i would like to see gambit in the next X-man movie and in MUA 2, he is the only reason i read X-men comics

Gambit is such a cool character. He is the only reason i read comics and such aswell, his history and character interests me alot. i don't mind wolverine and others but Gambit in my opinion is just the best.

Remy Etienne LeBeau

There has been some discussion on the Marvel Database regarding Gambit's middle name. I see that Marvel.com also lists it as Etienne, but I was wondering if anyone has any specific (canonical) references as to where we can find this... so we can put this issue to bed. Regards, --jamie_hari 15:00, 4 July 2006 (EDT)

Actually, I read on a Gambit fansite (the Gambit Guild) that Etienne was only his middle name in a very popular fanfic and is actually the name of his cousin. (unsigned)

Since no one has been able to provide a citable reference for "Etienne" being his middle name (I gave folks nearly 4 months!) I have removed the reference. If anyone wishes to readd this, please cite a canon source before doing so. Thanks... --jamie_hari 15:46, 30 October 2006 (CST)

It is his middle name, which means your edit can't be approved. You only have to look at the OHotMU X-MEN 2004 Handbook for proof of this. Also, no one has to site a source to prove something, but it is helpful in approving things faster. --DragynWulf 09:46, 31 October 2006 (CST)

See? I should have checked my handbooks, but I was at work and didn't have them handy when I posted. If you say that it is in the handbook, then so it is! Thanks DragynWulf! --jamie_hari 09:52, 31 October 2006 (CST)

If you had access to the Handbook after 4 months, you shouldn't have edited the entry just because someone didn't reply to your comment. If you don't know something to be true, then don't change it just because you can't find any referance. Especially when it looks like you didn't even look for it for the past 4 months.
Examples like this is the reason why Wikipedia and Marvel Database are not a reliable source. --DragynWulf 21:47, 31 October 2006 (CST)


Those Handbooks aren't exactly the be all end all of reliability. It had Gambit ranked 3 in terms of combat ability when his mastery of Bojutsu and arguably Savate, should place him at 5. --Canemacar

Actually they are because it is the official word on the characters from Marvel. However some mistakes do get made and they are corrected in the Data Corrections area.
For example: Gambit is not a level 3 or a level 5, but a level 4 as the Data Corrections mention for Gambit's entry.
"Gambit’s Fighting Level should be a 4 (experienced fighter) and not a 3 (some training)...Thanks to phil56201 for pointing this out.".

Gambit's abilities/accessories

Why is there no mention on Gambit's hand-to-hand abilities? Also, Gambit's bo-staff has never been said to be adamantium. I submitted some changes, but I don't know if they will be accepted or not.

I once again submitted some changes. Took out adamantium as a description of Gambit's staff-it has been wrecked or damaged before in the past. See X-Men Unlimited#7, Gambit(1st monthly)#4.

Added a brief description of his hand to hand and bo staff skills in the abilities and accessories section.

Deleted the description of not being able to charge organic substances to cannot charge living substances as was revealed in Gambit(2nd monthly)#8. He charged a dead tree branch in the 1st issue of his 1993 limited series.--phil56201 19:21, 29 September 2006 (EDT)

Shouldn't his agility and speed be in the superhuman category? He is fast enough to snatch bullets out of the air by hand you know.

I'm furious Gambit wasn't in any of the movies. Who's with me?==

So far there is only one post about this, where is the outrage, come on people. I really want an explanation why Gambit wasn't in ANY of the X-Men movies. I realize to people who don't read comics he may not be as well known or popular as characters such as Storm, Wolverine, Magneto, etc., but he is still mega cool and fairly well known. I think he would have been a fantastic addition to the movie and could have stepped it up to the next level.

I'm very upset as well that he didnt make it into any of the movies. They only show his name once & that is in the second one, where mystique(disquised as deathstrike) was looking in the computer records on the inmates & you see Remy Lebeau's name on the list. I also heard that they didnt put him in the movies cause his power is too much like cyclop's which is ridiculous.

The reason they didnt have him in the movie is because the guy who they wanted to play Gambit(Josh Holloway from lost) did NOT to play him. He said that Gambit's character was too much like his character in Lost. So the writers wrote gambit out of the movie because some jerk didnt want to play him. roguegambit

Im outraged as well, i think it is unfair to all Gambit fans, he's an ace character and deserves more spotlight. The only reason to why gambit may not be as popular as other charaters such as storm and wolverine is just because Remy is being incorectly used. When i use to watch the 90s toons he was a very popular character as he was always talked about when xmen was being discussed. So its really just the lack of gambit in movies and tv shows etc, thats why this generation is so unfamilier with him. But who knows the future for Gambit may get brighter.

Same here, adding Gambit to one or more movies would have brightened them up (Gambit being the colorful character he is). It would have given the Rogue character in the last X-Men movie more to do than she had. The fact that they decided not to use Gambit in the last movie because Josh didn't want to play the role is really ridiculus, he's not the only actor who can play the role!!


I would have loved Gambit in the movies, don't think he could have saved X3 though. Good they didn't waste him on that. How awesome would it have been though during one of the big fights to just see a glowing card past by and explode.


As much as I would love to see Gambit on the big screen, I would rather they never put Gambit in a movie then royally butcher his character like they did some of the others. If they made Gambit a goofy teen like they did with Rogue and some others I would've been really upset. And as much as they did justice to some of the characters, you know they could never do Gambit justice, therefore they are better off just leaving him out of the movies.

I think another reason why they didn't put Gambit in the movie, was because it would have taken away from Wolverine's character. They are both the loner, bad boy type with the shady/mysterious background, the ladies man. Seeing as how Hugh Jackman is now a big time actor, I'm guessing they didn't want to have him share the lime light with the same character type and with someone who is less skilled in acting.

Yer i would have to agree thr, i think that dat Remy could have stolen the limelight from wolverine, his powers are amazing and using the technology we have today, his powers could look great in the movies, taking away wolverines spotlight.

With Gambit and Wolvie having a similar type of bacground and being similar in different ways it makes it that much harder to decide whos better, but obvousily fox and marvel have chosen to completely focus on wolverine, which is unfair if you ask me coz gambit deserves to have the limlight for a change. Im with Gambit all the way.

i hered dat da cajun was left out of the movies because he was to similar to cyclops and wolvie which i dnt think is true at all. Remy can kinetically charge up non living objects and make them exploide where as cyclops fires an optic blast from his eyes...very different ppl. and wolvies so different to the cajun aswell, sure they are similar in someways...but in other ways there not, Gambit is more of a charmer when it comes to the laidies and is a more laid back and a cool character where as wolverine throws a wobbler at every chance he gets and is just an all around stress head. But then you could just say that about storm and rogue coz in the cartoons they were both tough cookies and could both fly..thats pritty similar. but i dont think thats the reason he was left out of the movies anway, i herd it was more to do with him not fitting into the storylines and was hard to write him into the story...but then again thr was alot of characters in x3 so it was propably kinda hard to write him in, but now that storyline has ended in x3 dat means any future films like x-men 4 wil start a new storyline and...fingers crossed...we wil c the rajun cajun on big screen.

Since they weren't able to hire a lot of the old cast on for a 4th movie, they should go ahead and give Gambit the central role in the next movie like they did with Wolverine. Gambit's always second only to Wolverine in popularity, and he deserves it after not being in the first three movies. Here's to seeing Romy on the big screen someday.

Yeah i herd about that, the older members of the cast required more money n that so i wonder who will be returning n who wont. i hope some of the bigger stars return tho coz it would be great to see da cajun n rogue get together or wolverine n cajun clash. n gambit does deserve a central role after being out of the last 3 films, i hope he has a major part.

I hope that Romy has a major part in the next movie aswel. hes an awsome character n i favor him more than wolverine. it would b brilliant just to see the x-men 4 previews on tv that are aimed about Gambits debut to the movie. ide be rite excited. I hope Gambit is involved in the next movie with a hugh part realy do.

he needs to be in the next movie without him there is no X-men with Nightcrawler, jean , Professer X and Scott Summers dead, they need to have Gambit

Nightcrawler isnt dead - they just wanted to have a sort of 'original' line-up seen in the phoenix storyline in the comics for the film

Im annoyed that gambit hasn't been in the movies, its a shame really, such a great character. He needs a bit more publicity in my opinion, hopefully Remy will be in the next movie, if there is one comeing out.

I edited Gambit's abitlies description to include utilzes a combination of martial arts, street fighting, and acrobatics to describe his fighting style, as that seems far more accurate to the "duelist/fencer" description he has now. C'mon people, read the books. He should be more accurately represented on the "official" board.--phil56201 00:25, 16 June 2007 (CDT)

The End

Is the connection between Gambit and Mister Sinister that is revealed in the The End books part of the main continuity? if so that info should definately be in here. - infamozes

The End is (I believe, yet Mighty Mike's the authority) an alternate timeline. While some of it may retain truth in the regular Marvel Universe, but it has yet to be revealed there and cannot be considered part of canon. It's like the alternate reality in which Taskmaster is a mutant. In the Marvel Universe, He has never been officially declared a mutant, thus cannot be considered one.--MadJackLogan 00:00, 1 August 2006 (EDT)

I don't think the clone thing should be carried over into 616. Actually, I think it'd be cool if Gambit turned out to be Sinister's biological son. It's been hinted at before, and Sinister has acted paternal towards Gambit in the past.

No mention of gambits brief period of blindness?

in x-men #198 - #165 gambit was blinded by his own explosive powers after a brief fight with the eight immortals. his sight was returned by Sage as a sort of Christmas present: "joyeux noel, mon brave"

We're all trying to forget about that...

why? i thought it was an interesting storyline - except the christmas special nonsense
