"My name is Gambit, and I play for keeps." Yes, the latest in our series of character spot tie-ins for X-Men Origins: Wolverine (after Wolvie himself, Victor Creed and Deadpool) is Remy Lebeau, aka Gambit, the card-playing, energy-wielding mutant with a deadly staff and a seriously bad attitude.

 

 X-Men Origins: Wolverine is out on DVD and triple-play Blu-ray next Monday.
