Gambit is a mutant with the power to charge objects with kinetic energy and make them highly explosive. He can usually be seen in a fight with playing cards that he charges and throws at his opponents to cause serious damage. He made his comic book debut in Uncanny X-Men Annual #14 in July 1990 and has since gone on to become a fan favourite.
