Gambit and Bishop was advertised as a sequel to the character's first series  and involves the two X-Men in Stryfe 's return. Gambit has starred in three ongoing series. The first, which lasted 25 issues and two annuals, ran from February to February The second lasted 12 issues and ran from November to August The third series lasted 17 issues, from August to September InGambit's past was explored in the one-shot X-Men Origins: Inthe one-shot "Curse of the Mutants: In Junehe began co-starring in X-Men: It was announced at the C2E2 convention by Marvel Comics that in August Gambit gets his own solo series that takes him back to his roots as a charismatic, cool, mutant master thief, written by James Asmus and drawn by Clay Mann.
He was kidnapped from the hospital where he was born, then raised by the LeBeau Clan Thieves' Guildand given to the Antiquary as a tribute. Soon after, Remy was placed in the care of Fagan's Mob, a gang of street thieves who raised the child and taught him the ways of thievery.
After living as an orphan on the streets, a year-old Remy attempted to pick the pocket of Jean-Luc LeBeau, then patriarch of the Thieves' Guild. Jean-Luc took the boy off the streets and adopted him into his own family. When he was 15, he accompanied his cousin Etienne Marceaux on his "Tithing," the ritual initiation test of the Thieves' Guild. However, it went awry as they were assigned to steal from the powerful immortal mutant Candrawho quickly captured them.
Candra recognized Remy from an encounter that had taken place in her past but in his future due to a time travel mission to the 19th Century Remy would take as an adult and sold them to the deformed mutant gangster and child slave trader known as the Pig, who planned to sell them and others their age to HYDRA as boy soldiers. Remy used his powers to escape their holding pen, but the physically enhanced Pig quickly caught up to them.
Remy discovered his signature attack when he picked up a playing card that Etienne had dropped, charged it, and threw it in the Pig's face, taking out his eye.
Finally escaping his cliff top headquarters by diving into the sea, Remy was ultimately rescued by the Guild; Etienne drowned. Essex wanted his stolen diaries back from the Weapon X program. Remy and the Thieves' Guild accepted the mission and sent out Remy to retrieve said diaries.
Standing in the cold, scouting the Weapon X facility, Remy couldn't bear the cold and swore he would steal a long, stylish jacket in New Orleans after the mission, which he did. Upon entering the facility, Remy witnessed Wolverine escaping from his adamantium procedure and found the diaries.
However, deeming them to be too dangerous for Essex to have them, as Remy didn't fully trust him, Remy burned the diaries. He headed back home, only to find a disappointed Thieves' Guild and Essex. Unfortunately, he was challenged by her brother Julien to a duel after the wedding.
In the duel, Gambit killed Julien, and he was exiled from the city, ending his romantic relationship with Bella Donna. During this period, Gambit found he had an uncontrollable amount of energy flowing through him, to the point that he could not withstand it.
Desperate, Gambit went to Mister Sinister for help. Sinister modified Gambit's power by removing a portion of Gambit's brain stem, making him significantly less powerful, but able to control the still considerably large amount of power in him. For the last of these operations, Gambit gathered together a group of mercenaries which Sinister named the Marauders.
The group of Scalphunter followed the Morlock Tommy and their goal was to wipe out the Morlocks. Gambit was unable to prevent the Marauders from killing a considerable number of Morlocks, but he was able to save a single child named Sarah, who would grow up to be Marrowthe leader of the mutant terrorist group Gene Nation. Gambit long kept his involvement with Mister Sinister and his mission in the massacre a secret from his fellow X-Men, much to their eventual displeasure.
Gambit was able to triumph by using a robotic doppelganger of Lady Deathstrike to distract Wolverine, while taking advantage of Wolverine's injuries, inflicted by the Reavers. Gambit recounted how he had fled from New Orleans after killing his brother-in-law in self-defense.
Despite her off-putting manner and the obstacle of her uncontrollable mutant ability that prevented anyone from touching her, he began romancing and seducing Rogue. Similarly, despite her initial aggressive rejection of his advances, Rogue found that she was not only flattered by his attention, but that she felt equally romantically attracted to him.
Many publishing years later, it had become apparent Remy had a dark secret. Sabretooth had hinted to it on numerous occasions during his "residency" at the X-Mansionprompting Rogue to ask him to reveal whatever he knew about Gambit's past. Sinister that later killed most of the Morlocks.
However it was also revealed that Gambit saved a single girl from the Marauders during the massacre. This apparent revelation and absorbing Gambit's own guilty memories caused Rogue to reject him.
Gambit was similarly cast out of the X-Men and was abandoned in the frozen wastes of Antarctica. There, Remy struck a deal with an enigmatic being known as the New Son. Gambit encountered Storm and Shadowcat when he attempted to steal the fabled Crimson Gem of Cyttorak for his new employer.
At one point, he became the field leader of a branch of X-Men. His romantic love for Rogue was still intact, but her inability to control her powers made her break it off out of fear of hurting him. She says that the X-Men have been betrayed by "one of their own" and it appears in the video that she is the last one left and is killed in the video.
Disturbed by this, Bishop seeks " The Witness ", a man who is said to be the last person who has ever seen the X-Men of the past alive. He enters a citadel of sorts where he confronts an old and withered but plucky man with long gray hair sitting on a throne, with two blonde women to either side of him.
When Bishop confronts him as to who killed the X-Men the Witness acts as though he knows, but refuses to tell and Bishop is thrown out of the citadel. For some time, he continues to watch Gambit's every step until he is finally convinced some time later that Gambit was not the Traitor with Onslaught being revealed to be the traitor.
The reason behind Gambit being called the Witness in Bishop's timeline has not been revealed. In the Messiah Complexit was revealed that the Witness was killed by the Marauders in their efforts to destroy anyone with knowledge of the future.
XSE[ edit ] When Storm leads a team of X-Men in search of Destiny's diaries, the thirteen-volume Books of TruthGambit volunteered to join them, but Rogue — afraid that her increasingly uncontrolled powers would bring him harm — flatly refused to allow him along.

Inthe character received his own miniseriestitled The Circle Chase, written by Fabian Nicieza and pencilled by Joe Madureira. Waid later commented, "Frankly, if I'd known Deadpool was such a creep when I agreed to write the mini-series, I wouldn't have done it.
Someone who hasn't paid for their crimes presents a problem for me. Deadpool became an action comedy parody of the cosmic drama, antihero-heavy comics of the time. The ongoing series gained cult popularity for its unorthodox main character and its balance of angst and pop culture slapstick and the character became less of a villain, though the element of his moral ambiguity remained.
