CHARACTER INFORMATION
-
Arcade gave differing accounts of his past life, and as yet there is no evidence to substantiate any of those accounts. Apparently Arcade told falsehoods about his past to mislead and confuse his opponents for his own amusement. One of Arcade's accounts stated that he was the spoiled son of a millionaire living in Beverley Hills, California, and killed his own father to acquire his vast sums of money. In killing his father, Arcade discovered that he had a talent and liking for murder. He therefore became an assassin, but was soon bored with killing by ordinary means, and used his great wealth to construct hidden complexes of high-tech death traps designed in the manner of an amusement park. He has brought the majority of the Marvelverse to his "Murderworld" in attempts to kill them, but has failed and escaped each time.
HISTORY BREAKDOWN
-
Though Arcade was an established villain in the X-Men's world, Gambit's first and only run in with Arcade was when he was sucked into a plot to get Wolverine. In Arcade's game to frame Wolverine as a mass murderer, a old friend of Remy's, Alexandra Davies, got caught in the crossfire. Gambit flew to London to solve her murder only to be caught up in the illusion that Wolverine had lost control and killed, not only Alexandra, but multiple other women in cold blood.

Running from the police, that believe that both Wolverine and Gambit are part of the serial murders, they run into a cyborg version of Mastermind II, the daughter of the original Mastermind. They then realize something is wrong with the world around them and there is someone framing them. After being dragged through their pasts and meeting each other at the end for a deadly fight they find themselves in a cell, not in Japan like they believed. Due to a fight between Mastermind II and Arcade the telepathic link with Gambit and Wolverine fails for a moment. The X-Men take the opportunity to track down Arcade and Mastermind II before they gain control again. In the end Gambit and Wolverine end up on a park bench with a very messed up Arcade.
