So anyhow, Gambit and Jubilee escape in the wake of the explosion.
The next issue, he fights Gambit again and things go differently...
Now, is it a cool scene and really well drawn by Jim Lee? Yes, no doubt. But Jose Luis-Garcia Lopez did an even BETTER job with Batman vs. Hulk and that didn't make that scene work either.
So yeah, I don't think Gambit's "whole deck" explodes with the same power as a freaking STAR. So this doesn't work, which isn't a big deal, since it really was a cool scene.
Okay, that's it for this week! Thanks for the suggestion, David!
