    This Gambit hate pains me.... as the cajun patois is part of the character. It's like asking a Jamaican to not speak patois when they were raised there. But in any event, I agree, he's always been written better in his solo books. The cliched brooding type, pining for a girl he can't touch that he was written as for years has hurt the character immensely. Hopefully he does turn out to be a double agent, cause he needs something to do to redeem himself. Although I think Brubaker has openly admitted he strongly dislikes gambit, and may just kill him off if he gets his hands on him.

    Yeah, except they've almost universally written his crappy Cajun incorrectly. His language has just been a white, non-Cajun's stereotypical sense of what a Cajun would sound like.

    As someone who lived in New Orleans and has spent A lot of time in west Louisiana , thank you. Every time there is a character from Louisiana the accent is so overblown

    i was gonna post this in moments of the week, but its not exactly a moment.

    im starting to warm up to how people have started treating charles like a shit head. because really, he is.
    people are talking back to him like its going out of style. countless mutants and humans died because of chuck but i always wondered if people just followed him because "he has the dream".

    surge pretty much nailed it in new X-men 44, when she was saying "where were you when we were dying?". and cyke pretty much saying "Get out of my way you crazy has-been" when messiah complex started. cyke and emma taking the reigns is turning the reigns and de-idolizing xavier in the books is whats keeping me attached to the X-books (not including new x-men because thats always been awesome). its good that they can tuck xavier away in the mansion like a senile uncle.

    Don't get me wrong Chuck's still a genius, but for a guy who wants peace for the mutant race, he sure does go in to space a fighting for aliens a lot. he keeps putting the X-men in bullshit situations and most cases for selfish reasons. (the third summers brother was his mistake. dont go throwing more x-men at your fucking problem). its a good character relationship right now, but i hope they dont wear it down like the "you're an asshole tony stark" era we're going through right now.

    in short: fuck charles xavier. Yay to good leading by slim and tits

    Thank goodness. The lack of New X-Men was seriously pissing me off. I really want to see where the students go after Messiah Complex.

    Barring that I could also go for a buddy book starring Wolverine and Pixie. ;-)

    It would seem like such a waste after all the developments the last two issues. They brought back The Black Kid (no offense) and make him leader over Surge. Would also be a waste to give them the old Generation-X garbs just to have them disappear. I love the team. Santo is REAL. Pixie is... what's that word... I don't think we use to same words, but I want to see more of her. Her character is definitely the next Jubilee in the sense that she is retains her personality nomatter what the situation. These characters make X-23 seem like she was made for them. Anole is potential incarnate, literally. Lop off another part of him and see what happens, lol. Does he have Spider-Man like abilities at all, sticking to surfaces or agility? Dusk is female, religious and not T&A and she is all that with out being a token anything.

    Seriously. I could sing blessings on these characters all night.

    And I think I will. I hope I don't get banned again for it:
    The Psychic kid with the green energy is much more interesting then Marvel Boy ever was, The Gold Kid is fun to have around and let's the writers bring all kinds of pain to the team as long as he is around. Pain is good. He doesn't eliminate anythreat because who wants to see kids tortured you know? It's still scary even if you know if Elixir can heal it, fix it, rebuilt it.

    Who else? The Mercury girl is so beautiful because she is so powerful but at the same time vulnerable. Electricity, Force, winds etc all can mess with her plus the guilt of being used to make a weapon in this current Messiah Complex story. Man I thought I was going to hate those stupid liquid metal monsters. Way to work them into a story line I can dig.

    Who else? Santo is so real. Reminds me of my big cousin. "I just hit things". Beautiful. Who else?

    Did I mention Santo?

    Plus all the auxiliary make it feel like the whole team is still ways from being full grown. Lupine, That kid with the diamond on his forehead who is the youngest mutant, and that other guy who grows big. They personify the weaker forces of the team but also give humanity to everyone they interact with. Pixie and Anole kind of sit between the two dynamics of weak and strong forces. Very Sun Tzu.

    I like how these characters have come from a bunch of different places in the comics to come together and be written so well. Love It. If Armor survives I have every confidence that whe would get folded into the, well, the fold.

    I choose it as worst because of the misguided bid for sexual appeal seen in granting a freak villain an open shirt. Also, the ugly hat and unsightly cybernetics.
