    As to the Death persona, I'm not planning to delve into that for the foreseeable future. We're really trying to make this series accessible for people who haven't been regularly following the X-Men books. So I'll really be selective in what previous stories we want to draw from. There are subtle ways to acknowledge those past events, but tell stories that exist on their own. And the things from continuity that we do tackle, we're going to introduce slowly and as if you don't know them. So his relationships with Rogue and the Thieves' Guild will start to be introduced gradually and in a way that builds their significance rather than cashes in on it.
    No Deathbit, small amount of Rogue. Zero-sum?

    Actually, the adversaries I'm most looking forward to giving him are Marvel Heroes. I think they really help bring out the shades of gray in his character. I'm not talking about traditional "slug it out before teaming up" fights. I'm actually going to pit his interests against some heroes and government agents.
    Good. I hope he continues to fight Avengers.

    OMG, is Asmus going to have Gambit confront The Winter Guard?! Seresecros, you might get a Darkstar appearance!

    I so hate Gambit, but I am so going to love this book. I can't not love it.

    I'm embarrassed to be excited about a Gambit book too. Even more so if it's about him trolling the rest of the MU. He should totally lift some Hulkbuster armor.

    As long as this makes Gambit's character great again is all I care about. He's been nothing like who he should be in quite some time, probably right when he returned in X-Men(during Carey's run). It's basically been downhill since then. Hopefully this brings him back to his former glory, and I enjoy the fine line that they're playing with and making him an actual wild card again. :)

    So is the costume he's got on in the teaser going to his new outfit? Or are they talking about a different costume?

    Either way, I hope Asmus and Mann get to call the shots on Gambit's look, with Liu and Gage following up on it in their books.

    Explores an interesting niche market while competing with like thief minded Image and DC titles. I look forward to seeing what Asmus's take on Gambit will be because he's due for a nip n tuck.

    Gambit has never been one of my favorite characters. I've always felt he was a cheap Longshot replacement, as they had the same bad haircut and one showed up after the other disappeared.He has horrible fashion sense and he is a thief. It is a bad example to set for the young folks. However, I might try this book as the creative team sounds interesting. We'll see.

    I liked everything that Asmus had to say about the character. I find myself wanting to support more X-books, but I'm finding that I don't have the drive to support monthlies. I'm a little torn about trade-waiting for this book, as it also features the art of Clay Mann, who is really awesome.
