History
A homeless boy wandering the streets, Gambit was adopted by Jean-Luc LeBeau, head of the council of the Thieves Guild, a criminal organization based in New Orleans. As part of a peace pact between the Thieves Guild and their rivals, the Assassins Guild, a marriage was arranged between Gambit and Bella Donna Boudreaux, the granddaughter of the head of the Assassins. However, Bella Donna's brother Julien objected to the marriage and challenged Gambit to a duel. Severely wounding Julien, Gambit was forced to flee New Orleans to prevent war between the two guilds.

Gambit wandered the world as he plied his skills as a master thief, aided by his mutant power to charge objects with explosive energy. He employed playing cards he charged with kinetic energy as his trademark weapon. At one point Gambit agreed to assemble the team of assassins called the Marauders for Mister Sinister (see Marauders, Mister Sinister). Gambit did not realize that Sinister would employ the Marauders to massacre the underground mutant community called the Morlocks (see Morlocks).

Eventually, Gambit encountered the X-Man Storm, who had been transformed into an amnesiac child and who had turned to theft (see X-Men). He helped her escape her enemy, the Shadow King, and they became partners (see Shadow King). Later, when Professor Charles Xavier returned from a long period of traveling in outer space, Storm, having regained her memory and true age, sponsored Gambit's admission into the X-Men (see Professor X). Gambit has remained on the team ever since and fell in love with his fellow X-Man Rogue (see Rogue). Recently, however, Gambit and Rogue have grown apart. As for Bella Donna, she has become Gambit's enemy. Recently, the X-Men learned of Gambit's role in the massacre of the Morlocks. Guilt-ridden, Gambit left the team temporarily.

After returning for a short period of time, Gambit has once again left the X-mansion for solo adventures.
