Explanation of the conversion:

History: Orphaned at birth, Remy LeBeau was adopted by the legendary Thieves Guild of New Orleans. To seal a peace pact between the Thieves Guild and the rival Assassins Guild, Gambit married the granddaughter of the head of the Assassins Guild. But Bella Donna Boudreaux's brother objected to the arranged marriage and challenged Gambit to a duel. Severely wounding his opponent, Gambit was forced to flee New Orleans to prevent war between the guilds.

Wandering the world, Gambit plied his skills as a master thief. During this time, he was employed by the genetic engineer called Mr. Sinister. Unable to control his burgeoning mutant abilities, Gambit submitted to an operation whereby Sinister reduced his power to a more controllable level. In return, Gambit helped Sinister assemble a team of assassins. He did not realize Sinister would employ the Marauders to annihilate the underground community of mutant outcasts known as the Morlocks.

Later, Gambit partnered with the X-Man Storm, who turned to theft after having been transformed into an amnesiac child. When Storm regained her memory and true age, she sponsored Gambit's admission into the X-Men. As an X-Man, he became enamored of his teammate Rogue. However, Gambit could not escape the specter of his past. When the full extent of role in the so-called "Mutant Massacre" was revealed, Rogue and the X-Men left him to fend for himself in the frozen wasteland of Antarctica. Eventually, he rejoined the team.

Trapped in the past during a solo adventure, Gambit turned to the era's Sinister to reactivate his full potential power in a successful bid to get back to the future. But to defeat the New Son, a doppelganger of Remy LeBeau from an alternate reality who feared his counterpart would become so powerful as to inadvertently destroy the planet as he had his own, Gambit pushed himself to the limit and burnt out, returning his power to its normal level.

Following the disappearance of his adopted father, Jean Luc LeBeau, Gambit assumed leadership of the nearly decimated Thieves Guild.

Note: The character of Gambit appeared in the X-Men television series.

Powers: Remy LeBeau possesses the mutant ability to transform an object's potential energy into kinetic energy through physical contact. He can then use the kinetically charged object as an exploding projectile.
