Gambit | Comics

Due to his “Red Eyes” at childhood, Remy LeBeau was abandoned as an infant but later adopted by the Thieves’ Guild who dubbed him “The White Devil”. The boy grew up learning the art of thievery and soon met the patriarch of the guild Jean-Luc LeBeau. Later he left the guild and learned to use his kinetic mutant energy through various objects; mostly playing cards.

Even after years of practice Remy still had trouble controlling his vast powers and he sought the aid of the geneticist Mister Sinister to help him up. With Gambit in the lead, Sinister formed The Marauders and orchestrated the “Mutant Massacre” on the Morlocks. His attempt to stop them proved fruitless and he barely survived from the feral mutant Sabretooth, along with a young Marrow.

Gambit joined the ranks of X-Men with the help of the then powerless Storm. There he met fellow mutant Rogue and they both fell in love. Later, Magneto held him on a mock-trial for his role in the infamous Morlock Massacre and soon Remy is met by his counterpart New Sun from another dimension, who came to destroy him.

When X-Man Bishop traveled to present from the future, he recognized Gambit as the fabled witness of the “Onslaught” event. Remy was tricked by the eternal mutant Apocalypse and become his Horseman of Death. Eventually he battled his former teammates and moved to Sinister’s Marauders with Sunfire. During Messiah CompleX, Wolverine stabbed him to learn Cable’s location and Remy left Sinister to retrieve Xavier’s recently deceased body.
