It is a nice scan, and the fact that Nightcrawler and gambit are already familiar with each other is the biggest dis-advantage for Kurt. I agree that his speed and agility are tools for surprise and that's the best he can hope for unarmed against Gambit. And I agree that despite his ability to completely disappear in the shadows of that ballroom, hide and seeek is not a good idea. Gambit might have it with all that hardware in a normal situation. 
 Unless the source of Gambit's bloodlust is mystical, magical or supernatural at all, Then I don't think it is a stretch to believe that the first time the elf 'ports he gets wise to the fact that he is not just sparring with remy. Then I think you gotta give it to NC because Gambit's big blood lust advantage is on Kurt's plane every time he teleports. Nightcrawler's powers are not strictly due to his mutation, he has inter-dimensional and mystical origins. I also don't know how many of Kurt's patterns and abilities would be so obvious to the ragin' cajun in this 'blood lust' state.

Was reading my local paper in NZ a couple of weeks ago about the shooting schedule in and around Queenstown and Glenorchy (Rohan from LOTR)for the upcoming Wolverine film. It just occured to me that unlike Middle-Earth, Narnia or wherever Willow was set that Wolverine's origins are based in an actual place. While its not the first time NZ has been supposed to be other places (Japan for the Last Samurai and North Korea for the escape) I wondered what the vine had to say about Hugh Jackman (produer) opting to film in NZ rather than BC?

"It'd be awesome if he only wore clothes from American Eagle Outfitters. Maybe his arch nemesis can be The Gap and a preppy Lex Luthor type with great abs named Abercrombie Fitch. His love interest could be Wet Seal or Ann Taylor... you could go on forever with this. "
thank you for reading my mind. when i saw the post all i could think was "why is there a hero named after a clothing store?""
He prexists the clothing store."
Really? The retailer was created in 1904. "

OH! well that must be where they got the name.

The_Creator says:

"Think back over all the Infinity Watch comics when Drax had the power gem - what did you see. Did you see him win every hand to hand fight with one punch ? Surely he should have been able to with the power gem - since you're saying it grants him unlimited strength. He should have simply ramped his strength to unheard of levels and obliterated anything in front of him. No, we see him have to fight and continue fighting - why, because he does not access the power reserve on a concious level - not like others did/do. He draws on it's power in relation to the challenge faced - so he up's his power level as things get tougher. Now, Drax is as thick as a brick. Would he be able to assess the Hulk and gauge his strength level - realising the danger he faced. Probably not as he's as trusting as a kitten sometimes. So he may likely approach the hulk at him normal strength level - may be a bit higher if a bit aprehensive and subconciously drawing on some power. If the Hulk hits him when enraged to this level - would it turn Drax in to a pancake in one punch ? "

I think that is valid, but when Thanos is doing all of this fighting there is a concious element to his accessing the power of the gems. Indeed his vanity encourages him to confront a great many heros one on one, but when he almost loses the gauntlet in "Infinity Gauntlet" he makes a concious decision to transcend into a state of being must larger than his body or any of his opponents. So why couldn't that same concious decision making be applied to Drax? Isn't it simple enough for Drax to want to overpower Hulk? Wouldn't that be enough to empower him with the gem's cosmic power? I think so. In the end, I don't believe any manner of force generated by the hulk could "pancake" the bearer of the power gem. The gem's power comes from a basic, cosmic level it is the physical manifestation of power. Hulk's power stems from himself, and while hulk can become as strong as he can imagine the depth of an infinity gem is technically unimaginable, finite vs infinite (hence the name infinity gems.)

I think Drax wins.

"From what I understand Werewolves have always been underneath Vampires *sorry Cryo*"

don't feel "sorry" for cryo, he actually knows what he's talking about. I have yet to hear any convincing arguements for vampires, on this forum or anywhere else.

Rock on Cryo

Excluding Dracula as some stories paint him as the originator of both. Other than that use anything you want, who would win?
