    ... yes, but on the other hand; Gil Jordan, while a Belgian comic book, is set in France.

    Asterix and Obelix are also awesome.

    This was a great story, which really showcased why Batroc is so damn awesome.

    DC's war comics line had Mademoiselle Marie, French Resistance fighter. She was even a cover feature for a while.



    This guy from X-Statix? Slightly less flattering. He turned out to be an American and part of a Bush Administration plot to make Americans hate Europe as part of the build-up to the Iraq War, but while he was in France he decided he loved it there and took it on as his adopted country.

    Batroc's probably one of my favorite Marvel characters, think I've even read all of his appearances.

    Since we're talking Marvel there's the superhero group Les Heroes de Paris who showed up during Civil War.



    Then there's Peregrine.



    And Rapido too.

    So does a great deal of Quebec. Doesn't make them actually French.

    Greg Rucka created a very fine update for that character late in his Checkmate run.



    And of course there's this walking, well, cycling abbatoir...



    I really should get around to reading all of these some day...

    He doesn't speak Cajun French but he speaks bad standard French, according to a fellow forumer Zeb Oswalt. Cajun is a dialect distinct from Parisian/Metropolitan/Standard French. So is Quebecois French.

    I believe Northstar and Aurora are speaking Parisian French instead of Quebecois French.

I'm just glad North Star never speaks french, I don't want to know what they do with french candans. Not sure they'd leason to fans help to much. I mean there still screwing up Spanish. Huh? Their Editor and cheif at Marvel is who? Most of their name artists are from ware? Ya'd think one of em would say...em guys. This doesn't make since. *sigh*. Sorry for the Eric Larson style rant, but still. Comics are oy some times. Heck they screw up British English enough. Back to Gambit, he's from Nor'leans. Why is he speaking french at all? Their not Cajuns there. Well here. I'm in Covington it's one the North Shore. So I'm near New Orleans. Ok I am a cajun, sort of. But, I was born in Lafayette. I just moved here.

    Still, why is the man speaking french? And bad french at that. As for the computer translater it doesn't all ways work. I was dating this one gal a few years ago. Any way she was at her ho,me I just got home from work was tired so I just IMed her on line. To tired to go over there. Any way. She spoke fulent Spanish. So I tried to say something romantic to her using the translater....only half of it was right. The other...oy.

    I am guessing that Chris Claremont, Fabian Nicieza and other X-Men writers never met a Cajun.

    If Belgians and Cajuns should be included in here, then I'd also nominate Northstar & Aurora. Quebecois are not French citizens, and they also have developed their own dialect.


    Quebecois French: Donne-moi-le pas
    Standard French Ne me le donne pas
    English: Don't give it to me.

    Quebecois French: Donne-moi-z-en pas !
    Standard French: Ne m'en donne pas!
    English: Don't give me any!

    Quebecois French: Je comprends qu'est-ce que tu veux dire.
    Standard French: Je comprends ce que tu veux dire.
    English: I understand what you mean.

    Quebecois French: Mon frère, yé dans police.
    Standard French: Mon frère est dans la police.
    English: My brother is in the police.

    Quebecois French: Y a l'air fâché, le chien.
    Standard French: Le chien a l'air fâché.
    English: The dog looks angry.

    Quebecois French: J'ai trouvé le document que j'ai de besoin.
    Standard French: J'ai trouvé le document dont j'ai besoin.
    English: I've found the document I need.

    Quebecois French: J'ai un enfant à m'occuper.
    Standard French: Je dois m'occuper d'un enfant.
    English: I must take care of a child.

    Not seeing the relevance of that. Gambit lives in New York, I believe, like most Marvel characters; I know he was born in New Orleans.

    He doesn't speak Cajun French but he speaks bad standard French, according to a fellow forumer Zeb Oswalt. Cajun is a dialect distinct from Parisian/Metropolitan/Standard French. So is Quebecois French.
    He speaks English with a terribly done French accent.

    I believe Northstar and Aurora are speaking Parisian French instead of Quebecois French.
    I believe that comicbook writers generally don't really know there's more than one kind of French.
