*Marvel: In August, 1990’s X-Men #266, while temporarily de-aged to childhood (as the X-Men often were – maybe scripter Chris Claremont was feeling the passing years?), Storm met a charismatic young thief named Gambit, who aided her in escaping from the clutches of the Shadow King. Unlike many one-off guest-stars, however, Gambit caught on with the reading public, and stuck around to become a mainstay of the team – fortunately ditching his original costume of pervy knickers, stripey tights and flasher-mac in favour of a more conservative ensemble! The Ragin’ Cajun has gone from strength to strength since, and given that he’s soon to be embodied on the big screen by lumbering thespian beefcake Channing Tatum, now’s the time to grab his early appearances before they soar even higher in price! This extremely attractive NM/M pence copy is offered at £125.
