Rita was an extremely talented stunt woman who fell in love with the hero, Longshot. This didn’t last very long, and Rita was soon kidnapped by the spineless Mojo. Mojo erased all of Longshot’s memories of Rita, and she was given modifications at the Body Shoppe. The experiments left Rita with six arms, cybernetic implants, teleportation abilities, and knowledge of the dark arts. The modifications also left her mentally unstable, and Mojo used this to manipulate her into a killing machine. She eventually has a change of heart, and joins the Uncanny X-Force.

Remy’s early life was downright depressing, and filled with tragedy. He was abandoned by his parents at an early age due to his satanically red eyes. He lived on the streets until the leader of the Thieves’ Guild adopted him into his group. Remy then grew up learning the ways of thieves, and became an exceptional one himself. He joined the Marauders, and grew close with one of the members, Scalphunter. Upon realizing what the team’s main goal was, Gambit left the Marauders, and joined the X-Men.
