Gambit is a comic book character created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Jim Lee. Gambit has been and continues to be one of the more popular X-men comic book characters. Gambit has abilities that allow him to control and manipulate pure kinetic energy; he is also incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat, and the use of a bo-stick.
Gambit’s character is often portrayed as a ladies man, which appeals to many of his female comic book fans. Gambit, whose real name is Remy Lebeau, was born and raised by foster parents in Louisiana. Nothing is known about his birth parents, although it has been hinted at that his father may be the galactic wanderer known as Corsair. Gambit is extremely proud of his heritage, which is illustrated, by the writers of his comic books, by having Gambit speak with a very thick Cajun accent.
Although Gambit is a part of the popular comic book X-men team, he was often not trusted by his teammates, because when Gambit first encountered the X-men, he was a professional thief with ties to villain, Mister Sinister.
The character of Gambit has made the crossover to movies, television and solo stories; this has led to the popularity and success of Gambit comic books. Gambit made it to #65 of the top 100 Comic Book Heroes on IGN and continues to grow in popularity.
