Ultimate X-Men No. 14

Check out this poker game.

Pretty dangerous if you ask me. Everybody's drinking and there are firearms everywhere.

Remy crashes this game, looking for the whereabouts of somebody "with a hard head" who happened to have recently murdered two people. The interview, though successful, takes a violent turn and we are witness to the power of Gambit.

You know what happens when mutant powers are used? Cerebro detects it. Gambit becomes the recepient of an invite from Professor X.

He doesn't accept though, at least not at this time. Gambit loves the freedom of his vagabond lifestyle.

One more stop as Gambit continues to stalk Hammerhead. Once again he gets what he wants but once again he has to use his power.

The last stop. Gambit finds Hammerhead at last, but . . .

No problem.

Here's a clever use of his power. Under the manhole cover . . .

Remy's luck runs out when Hammerhead manages to tackle him.

Hammerhead is the poor man's Bulldozer (from the Wrecking Crew), and Bulldozer is the poor man's Juggernaut.

Hammerhead manages to gain the upper hand, giving Gambit a beating but then this happens.

Result . . .

Looks like Hammerhead - a mainstay in the original Marvel universe - only has a cameo spot in the Ultimates universe.

Remy saves the little girl.

He can't or won't take her along so he finds guardians for her.

I don't know about these guardians. Let's assume Gambit knows what he's doing.
