Since then, there has only been one story with the character I liked and that's the one where he single-handedly kicks Sabretooth's ass in the Xavier Mansion because Sabretooth was talking shit.
When Gambit debuted he quickly became one of my favorite characters, to this day he is still my wifes favorite character. I much like you grew to dislike the way he was handled and not the character himself. I think that when written well, like Carey has done in Legacy, Gambit can be a very popular and interesting character. He got to bogged down and tied to Rogue and I think that whole lovers that can't be together angle with the 2 of them really diminished both of these characters. As seen again with Carey, when he wrote Rogue as the leader of his team on X-Men.
I really hope that we will see more of the character in future issues of Legacy because Carey really seems to have a good grasp on the character.
