It's been announced that Gambit has been cast in the new Wolverine spin-off movie.

This is bad news.

Gambit is probably one of the stupidest characters in the Marvel mythos and I have no idea why every teenage girl X-men reader in the galaxy likes him so much. His powers are okay, his costume is silly, his story is even sillier.

I mean, really. How can you make this cool:
