Gambit's first appearance is in New York where he helps a young girl whose parents have been killed by a gangster by the name of Hammerhead. After she is kidnapped, Gambit goes after them and defeats Hammerhead, and then places the girl in the care of two young men who had previously offered their help.

After leaving his first true friend, Gambit continues living on the streets, but his powers grow out of control and anything he touches is destroyed by his kinetic energy.

Rogue kiss Gambit

Fenris found Gambit before he starved to death and constructed a suit that suppressed his power and gave him greater control of it. After being trained to fight by Fenris, they employed him as a thief; on his last mission for them Gambit kidnaps the X-Men's Rogue as a recruit for Fenris.

But Rogue passes up the offer to work for Fenris and have her power under control and rebels with Gambit. Gambit and Rogue lay siege to Fenris and escape, she then leaves the X-Men to live with Gambit.

Dying Gambit passes through the kiss Rogue.

Gambit and Rogue then start a chain of robberies on Fenris banks and a Casino in Las Vegas. After stealing a crystal from a Fenris vault, they are attacked by Juggernaut.

Gambit throws the crystal into him and Juggernaut absorbs it making him ultimately indestructible. Gambit then apparently destroys both himself and Juggernaut in battle but before he kisses Rogue, passing all his memories and powers onto her.


Remy can take the kinetic energy stored in any object and charge it to explode on impact or when he releases it from his grip.
