Karen: With so many of them out there now, this might not be such a difficult question, but I haven't been keeping up really with the X-Men since the Bronze Age. But picking the worst X-Man isn't that hard for me. Who else but Gambit?
Karen: Gambit epitomizes everything that went so terribly wrong with comics in the 90s. The character seemed to have been created by picking one item from column A, one from column B, one from column C, etc. I mean, just look at him. He wears a trenchcoat over his costume. Why? He carries a staff. Why? He has the mutant power to charge objects with explosive energy, yet chooses to use this to charge playing cards to throw at people. Yes, playing cards. Because playing cards are so such great weapons. And he’s a Cajun. So we can have writers use an accent. Oh geez.
Karen: I guess he’s an easy target. Now that there’s something like 240,000 X-Men, I’m sure there are others worthy of being worst. But he’s my number one. What about you?
