ALTERNATIVE GAMBITS
-
Through out the years there have been comic series that featured alternative reality Gambit.
They are usually different dimensions or events that have thrown the normal storyline topsy-turvy temporarily.
Some are just visiting the normal reality.

A band of theives that stole supplies needed from Apocalypse, causing Mudir Rictor to become obssesed over catching them.

Though Gambit swore that he would never love again after Rogue chose Magneto over him, he fell in love with Lila Chaney, a member of his group. Later, with the retrieval of the crystal, the world was changed back to normal. In the 10th Anniversary series hes seemed to be joined with the X-men of that universe.

-
MUTANT X
-
Mutant X's Gambit is very similar to reality. Gambit grew up in the guild, married Bella Donna, and worked for Sinister. That is where the changes begin. Instead of the massacre, he and Bloodstorm (the vampiric Storm of that reality) stole two children for Sinister. When Sinister told him to kill the female child he refused. Gambit recieved a mortal wound and Storm saved him, turning him into a vampire. Gambit returned to his wife with the child, later named Raven. The Six approached him and a battle insued, killing Bella Donna. Gambit joined the Six and sent his child away for protection. Later he left with his child, leaving the Six for good.

In his reality, New Sun was raised with his full power. New Sun's kinetic charging powers had flared out of control, burning the world and killing everyone.

He attempted to create a new world where everyone would eventually be transported to, using the real Gambit of this universe to do it.

X-MEN FOREVER

X-Men Forever's Gambit is part of Claremont's "re-telling" of the X-Men starting at X-Men #3, where he originally left the company. Right now Gambit's real name is known as Remy Picard, but enemies have mentioned the name LeBeau. He is till a theif but seems to be more of a father figure with Storm, who remains a child, and Kitty Pryde. He seems to be a little more discontent within the mansion and is thinking strongly of leaving but stays to keep Storm there so she can have help with her powers. His uniform has changed drastically as well. He has more of a James Bond look.

AGE OF X
-
Age of X was another alternate universe that Marvel dreamed up. It shows a different way the X-Men's universe could change without the help of Professor X. In this universe the human race is not tolerant of the mutant race, creating an all out war between the two factors. Mutants are captured and put to death. Gambit is captured by the government and is on his way to his death when he blows the van and his captors up. He then joins forces with Magneto. His character background with the guilds is pretty much the same. One difference though is his use of an antique rifle. He is a sharp shooter and charges the bullets before firing.

Not much is said about his background in the Zombie universe since he was not a huge player in the story.

The X-Babies are a group of Mojo-manufactured child clones of the X-Men. Mojo had de-aged the X-Men into children early on in the Uncanny X-men series and after the exceptional ratings it produced he created the X-Babies to take place of the original X-men after their escape. Once Mojo began to lose power over the Mojo Universe, he "cancelled" the X-babies, including the X-baby Gambit. They fled to the real dimension to ask the real X-men to save them from death.

LIFE TIME LINE
-
This is a basic timeline of the more major events that happened in Remy Lebeau's life.
Not everything is here, but enough to get the general idea. There are also a few things that may be out of order slightly,
due to the fact that Marvel has never really told us when it happened exactly, or comic books getting crossed, messing it up a bit.
