Gambit is a superhero, a member of the X-Men and also a part of the Marvel Universe. He first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #14.
He is a Cajun mutant whose power is the ability to take potential energy (energy that builds when an object is not moving) and turn it into kinetic energy (energy that causes an object to be in motion). The objects he charges with kinetic energy have a pink glow to them. Not only does he have this power, but he is also athletic and good with a bo staff. He carries around explosive playing cards and the aforementioned bow staff.
