Gambit has one of the best X-names, a great set of powers, and dialogue that could write itself under a decent writer. I never understood how this character lost my interest. I understand a "faux" step, but for the majority of his career as an X-Man? I always like when a character can pick a lock by charging a toothpick with kinetic energy. I'm not worried about Gambit's future. Some writer will force his comeback down our throats.
