Weapon X #26 - The thing that drives me craziest about Pak's writing is that, on occasion, he has some genuine moments of brilliance, but you have to read so much gunk to get to the good stuff that the pay off is generally not worth it in the end. This issue features -- as far as I can remember -- the best scene ever in the series, as we witness Sabretooth's personal hell: lying in pain, unable to heal, while an accountant (Many-Face, one of his victims from the Mutant Massacre) berates him with all of his sins. Creed offers that he's changed ("inverted"), and Many-Face points out that this heroism is so small in comparison to his evil deeds that they can't begin to balance the scales of his life. Such an excellent concept. Perhaps it should have been an X-Men Black one-shot. In the same issue, we also got a prolonged a glimpse at Deadpool's personal hell -- even though this isn't his book or team -- that shows him failing at stand-up comedy. Groan. And by the end of the issue, we're right back to where we were with Pak at the beginning: sometimes terrible, sometimes brilliant, but most often just Meh. .

Another blast from the TreadComics Files of Past! The ragin’ Cajun himself, Gambit.
Gambit first appeared in Uncanny X-Men issue 266 back in August of 1990.
Gambit was created by legendary X-Scribe Chris Claremont and Superstar Jim Lee.
Part X-Men, part Thieves Guild ... all scoundrel. Gambit was a big part of the X -Teams in the 90s including being a major part of the animated X-Men Cartoon that introduced the X-Men to a whole new generation.
Later re-conned as part of Sinister’s Marauders... and the leader who lead them into the sewers to slaughter the Morlocks in the Mutant Massacre... Remy LeBeau has always been a bite of a mystery and lynchpin in recent X-Men History. -
Now married to Rogue after an on again and off again (nearly 30 years of it) they both co-star in the series “Mr. and Mrs. X”
At Comic Book Depot on Saturday, during Halloween ComicFest, I said that Colossus was my favorite X-Man. @j.c.vaughn asked me why that was & I said it boils down to one panel from X-Men #211 .... @johnbroglia immortalized that moment with this sketch...so awesome!!! Thank you so much! #xmen#johnbroglia#colossus#marvelcomics#originalart#mutantmassacre
