We Are The X-Men: Gambit & Elektra

Marvel.com. X-Men editor Nick Lowe: "Something scary is brewing inside of Gambit. But is it good scary or bad scary?"

"The scariest person in the Marvel Universe already has ties to Wolverine. Does Warren Worthington III have enough cash to hire Elektra to solve the X-Men's worst problems?"

Find out more during Marvel's X-Men panel at the inaugural C2E2 expo on Sunday, April 18.at 2:45pm.

IF the x-men involved in this are Magneto, Gambit, Hope, our gal and these other heroes are just cameos or guest then I think it could be a really good lineup!

Gambit and Elektra... don't ask me why, but I think this is the partnership with most potential to work.

However, Elektra would be a much better partner to Psylocke, since they're both ninjas (although Elektra is quite more skilled in that), they both have a past with the Hand and - come on! - they wear practically the same clothes in different colors!

Considering the huge amount of similarities between Betsy post-Acts of Vengeance and Elektra, it's surprising that they never appeared in a story together, either working as a team or fighting each other...

Betsy met an alternate Elektra during Exiles but they didnt really interact much if i remember.

I actually think its because theyre so similar they keep them apart.

a series of one shots with different marvel heroes and x-men seems cool especially if it is some of the x-men that get less spotlight and not wolverine every other week. But im enjoying Nation X i think they should just continue that.

ELEKTRA! I'm glad death-in-red is getting used again. The Dark Reign Elektra mini was super awesome, and she's a kick-ass ninja. Psylocke could pick up a few ninja tricks from her.

I didn't realize how much Electra was that similar to Betsy - probably because Elektra is aesthetically boring somehow. I like the name and the idea of Elektra, but she's not that interesting.

Iam excited to see Psylocke's reaction to Elektra on the same team.. their partnership...
That's all. i think Elektra is quite boring either..Don't think she's more skilled than Betsy.. they have the same background( The Hand assassins) so.. at least they're equivalent.

I find it funny how many times over betsey has been retrained in fighting over her history, I WOULD HOPE she would rank near Elektra.

I'm pretty sure Psylocke ranks near Elektra in terms of physical skills. I don't believe they are on par (Elektra has been written as a monster ninja killer with monster ninja skills), but I'm sure Psylocke would be able to hold her own against her in a no-powers fight.

They're both powerful women who kick major ass. I don't really care who's better. I'm just happy watching. Hahaha!

Elektra sucks. Psylocke rocks my boat. Betsy, will you freaking psychic knife her already? Take her stupid bandana for your spoils.
