When it comes to Gambit storylines in X-Men comics... whether or not he was the "traitor" back during the 90s was not a huge shock to me, nor was it interesting and it just ends up being an old desperate argument that his haters use against him.
As great as the 90s animated version was, and yes his third person talk was kind of annoying, but it pales in comparison to his 616 comic book counterpart. However voice actor Chris Potter did set the stander on how Gambit's voice and accent should sound, but unfortunately no one but him has been able to capture his voice correctly.
The other animated series and live action version were not very good, his character was reduced to a joke and his appearance look like shit. Taylor Kitsch was an awful Gambit and thankfully, Channing Tatum did not play Gambit... the man has not started in one decent film and can't act.
I like Gambit and Rogue as a couple (when written correctly) but some of the reasons why they went through so much unnecessary drama and being kept apart was due to a lot of writers either having no idea how to write romance, they think it's nothing but drama and tension or it's them hating one (usually Gambit) and loving the other (fans boys with gigantic egos who picture themselves with Rogue). From the mid 2000s to now it's a long list of shallow talent-less hacks from Rodi, Austen, Morrison, Milligan, Carey, Gage, Remender, Soule, Asmus, David (PAD), Bunn, Zub and Duggan.
The very idea of a ladies' man is just not PC enough for these insecure losers with no sense of humor, or they (leftist liberals, SJWs feminist, and progressives) hate the idea of a loving stable couple, marriage, having kids and so on. A lot of Marvel and DC couples have suffered from this. I'm expecting everyone to love the character, but these so-called complaints some people have with him are just pathetic.
I don't care for Rogue, the only time I did was mostly from the 90s animated series and X-Treme X-Men, that's it. Throughout the 80s and 90s in the comics she was one of most inconsistent written characters on the team, she went from being a villain to a hero in the blink of an eye, then to a tough sassy southern gal and then to a naive stupid scared little girl who runs away, it seemed she had split personality disorder. The mid 2000s and 2010s was even worse, she became a whore, throwing herself at whoever... one had to wonder why Gambit was even wasting his time with her. I want characters to have flaws, to act like human beings but not the point of acting like a blind misguided fool who never learns anything!
As for her fan base... oh god... some fall under that whole thing where they think a morally just person like Rogue can somehow be with a psychopathic killer that has a death toll that goes into the hundreds of thousands and this is mostly coming from female fans who are not only hypocrites, but seem to be suffering from a mental illness.

Or they still think that it's the 90s and Rogue needs to runaway, hide and think things over for the 100th time... only a few fans that I've seen have got their heads out of there asses and knows that she should not be that stupid, blind, confused after so many decades and knows that she should be with Gambit, the man who's been there for her since day 1 and has loved her ever since.
