Welcome to Comic Book Legends Revealed! This is the six hundred and twentieth week where we examine comic book legends and whether they are true or false.

Just like the last few months, one legend today, one tomorrow and one Sunday.

Let’s begin!

COMIC LEGEND:
Gambit was originally going to be a clone of Cyclops created by Mister Sinister

STATUS:
False Enough for a False

Many, many moons ago, I did a Comic Book Legends Revealed where I revealed that Gambit was originally intended as a villain, and that he was always connected to Mister Sinister. However, in that legend, I did not specify HOW he was connected to Mister Sinister (as a point of fact, I had no clue at the idea HOW he was connected to Mister Sinister, just that he was connected to Mister Sinister, specifically the original version of Mister Sinister, who was also covered in that same old Comic Book Legends Revealed).

So what WAS the deal when Gambit first showed up in “Uncanny X-Men” #266 to save Storm?

After offing one of the Toretto family’s loved ones and parachuting away from her airbase in The Fate of the Furious, Cipher will be back to again face off against Dom and company in Fast & Furious 9. This time though, as Theron’s post shows, the cyberterrorist has traded in her questionable dreads for a badass bowl cut.
