    Yeah. We have Deadpool. We have Gambit. And they're both better.

    And Fanto is supposed to be a send-up anyway. It feels like a lot of writers take the guy too seriously.

    I like Fantomex, and I hate those two goofballs.

    I'd like him more if he and Betsy fought more often.

    I think he's great. Would love a Gambit/Fanto buddy book.

    Din't agree that he's a rip off of Gambit or DP, though he def pokes fun at the former.

    Don't hate like others do, but never found him very interesting EXCEPT at the end of Bunncanny when he became a powerful villain. I actually liked that but Soule obvs didn't care.

    Have you read Spurrier's X-Force? I thought he made good use of the character in kind of the same vein.

    I'm a Gambit fan and I don't "hate" him. I hate how unoriginal he is and how his creators and writers that tend to use him won't even admit that he's basically an amalgamation of several other characters.

    1. He's a douche.
    2. He was only created because Morrison hates Gambit.
    3. He's a douche who killed Darkstar.
    4. He's pushed down our throats at the expense of far better characters (whom people actually want).
    5. He's a douche who killed an innocent child.
    6. His MAX print series couldn't even outsell the Longshot mini but he's still pushed down our throats.

    Am I missing anything guys?

    Isn't he not actually French, but pretends to be anyway?
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ron White says you can't fix stupid. I beg to differ. Stupid will usually sort itself out, it's just a matter of making sure you're not close enough to become collateral damage.
