    Well, at times. And that's mostly because sometimes, he's a character brought to the forefront, and he's that. Other times, he's the guy posing with the New Mutants somewhere in the back of the big X-Men photo.

    He would make a good Avengers recruit, though. At least in part because he seems a little less wrapped up specifically in the mutant struggle than some of his comrades. Not that he isn't involved, but he's a little less consumed by it than some, he'd cross over well.


    Come to think of it, so would Roberto for the same reasons. Except on the opposite side of the personality coin, where he's basically the Hawkeye/Quicksilver to Sam's Cap.

    well (in the 90s) the New Mutants were supposed to have evolved into something different from what Xavier or Cable intended. that didn't really happen, of course. but i think they might have been helped by branching out into the world. Dani Moonstar did become a S.H.I.E.L.D agent for a little while. i'm backing Cannonball because he has descriptive codename and battlescene-approved powerset.

    Humility, leadership honor and integrity pretty much makes him a bad match for the current Avengers

    then let him be the example. Hawkeye's presence alone was enough to get the Thunderbolts moving in the right direction. maybe that's what Guthrie would be for whatever Avengers squad recruits him. an organization like that periodically needs new blood. because what you saw with Civil War is that being part of the infrastructure can warp a way a hero thinks. they weren't able to see things from the others perspective.

    Sharon's not an Avenger. She's SHIELD. A secret agent.

    Gambit seems a strange choice to make a big deal about southerners anyway. Southerners, especially southern aristocrats, were the ones stealing Cajun land back in the day. If the South had won the Civil War, Cajuns wouldn't have a spec of land left in modern times. Cajuns and ethnic southerners are natural enemies.

    You guys do know that Gambit is a comic book character. And that this is the writer of the book plus marvel editorial whom are making " gambit" say this.

    Of course, that's before the Avengers show up on their front lawn to keep them on a leash.
