Nerd War! #10
It’s a Nerd War! To reiterate Nerd War is our competition of who should be named best Marvel character of 2011/12! Each week one of us will nominate a character and give you a summary of their origins, love interests, and personality. The person who nominated the character will be on the For side for the character to go through, where as the other person will be against! This is a debate – and only the best will survive! It doesn’t matter if the character is good or evil, human, mutate, alien, mutant or the Juggernaut. They just have to be a Marvel Character. But with loads of characters, it might be a long wait before we get to round two .
This week X2 nominates Gambit! (Finally cries X1!)
Origin: Gambit was abandoned at birth due to his in-human eyes, he was stolen from the hospital by thieves and raised by them. Gambit was taught about thievery. Gambit also married to unite the thieves with the assassins but the brides brother disapproved. Remy helped Storm and she repaid him by making him join the X-men!
Love Interest: The Wonderful… Rogue! The best marvel couple… EVER! (he married Bella Donna Boudreaux , thank Marvel that didn’t work out!)
Personality: Hilarious! This guy knows when to make a joke. He is a bit of a flirt, and definitley knows how to look after a woman. He is also quite romantic. Remy has a side of wit but he is quite a dumb-head.
Powers and Abilities: Remy can charge objects with kinetic energy, and when he does so he comes up with many cheesy phrases. He uses a deck of cars as his ‘Objects’ and obviously caries on with his cliche phrases. He also can fight really well, especially when he has his metal stick thingy with him.
|X1′s Opinion:||X2′s Opinion:|
|Let me just get something straight, Gambit is probably the hottest guy in the comic book genre – DC and Top Cow included. Hottness aside, Gambit is a witty, flirtatious, naughty bad boy who has a HUGE following. He’s had his off moments – his marriage to Belladonna was a huge NO, NO, but thankfully that ended. Gambit’s life has basically been one big turmoil, you can’t exactly say this guy’s lucky, I mean Sinister just wouldn’t leave him alone! And he was turned into freakin’ DEATH! He even tried to kill ROGUE! Luckily, a part of him knew that Rogue is the love of his life at that prevented him in killing her. As X2 pointed out most Marvel characters loose points for their confusing and sometimes sickening love lifes, but Remy gains points for his! Gambit and Rogue would probably be the best couple in the Marvel Universe, if Rogue wouldn’t stop dumping him for creepy old men, or clones of creepy old men! Don’t worry Remy, we’re chearing you on, Rogue better come around!! Gambit’s powers are pretty awesome, you see Gambit makes ‘tings go boom, non? But Gambit’s powers would be even more awesome if Sinister didn’t take out part of his brain. Gambit HAS to go through to the next round. No doubt.||I am just going to start this of by saying, Gambit is one of the best looking Marvel characters and he has got his smooth accent to go with it. He also is in the best Marvel couple ever, so he could also get the title of ‘Best Marvel character ever’ Other than his looks Remy has amazing powers which could get him very far in a X-Men training session. Remy has been involved in many crazy story lines and never seems to fail on making us laugh. His catch-phrases may be cliche but they are also quite amazing and very unique, he doesn’t say the same think over again (Gives side eye to Wolvie: Bub) Gambit’s intelligence lets him down a little. Normally with these Marvel characters it is always the love interest that is disappointing but when it comes to Gambit the love interest boosts him up to top 5 marvel Characters. His relationship with Rogue is legendary and only true Marvel fans know it (that’s Marvel fans not the film fans which misguide the newbies) The whole deck of cards scenario, makes me want to play cards every single day. I do not really have anything else to say, Gambit defiantly dissevers the title. He is just so cool. Well Done Remy .. from Thief to Legend.
X1: For – 10; Against – 1
X2: For – 7; Against -3
Gambit goes through to de next round…NO! It’s not because he married us both – *shifts eyes nervously*.
