"Ah, just in time darling, dinner is fresh out of the oven!" Came the cooing reply from the kitchen.
Logan shed his dapper dress coat and stylish bowler's hat before delicately removing his white silk gloves. He was truly a refined and modern man of taste and elegant fashion sense.
He had grown up in Puerto Rico and despite his frail and lanky frame, had been gifted with a keen wit, steely resolve and the abundant patience to see any job through to its conclusion. These qualities had earned him a position as assistant director at Cadwell and Hamptonshire - a rather prestigious investment partnership on Wall Street.
He fixed his lovely red-headed wife with a dashing glare and gave her a quick peck on the cheek before sauntering off to the lavatory to freshen up before the evening's entertainment. A good friend he hadn't seen in ages happened to have called him earlier in the week and he had demanded that the old chap come by for a home-cooked dinner by candle-light, a bit of wine and perhaps a select piece for piano (which he had none too modestly been priding himself on of late) to liven the mood for his old colleague.
He sang loudly as he waxed his moustache and cleaned behind his ears. Jean, his wife, smiled to herself - Logan was indeed the epitome of a picture-perfect gentleman in every sense of the word.
A powerful thudding sound shook the door to the apartment and Logan's eyebrows raised in alarm - It couldn't be the company yet?! The table wouldn't be set for another ten minutes at the very least!
"Got dammit I'm hungry! What you fixin up in there? Smell mighty good!" Came a hoarse shout from the hallway beyond the front door.
Logan chuckled mildly to himself, how novel a disposition his old chum had acquired in the many years since their last parting!
"Ahhh Remy, my good friend, I am coming right away! It is so very good to see you, I do hope you have brought an appetite with you... he swung the door open and bowed humbly. A rather bovine looking woman stood there wearing a pair of overalls and a camouflaged hunting cap emblazoned with the 'Skoal' logo. Beside the woman stood a creature that could only be described as a close relative of Sasquatch, garbed only in a dirty, torn pair of cut-off jeans, his veritable second skin of tattoos and a vast and bedraggled forest of body hair.
The overpowering stench from the disheveled duo caused Logan to nearly regurgitate on the welcome mat, but he faked a cough and rubbed his watering eyes.
Remy scratched himself in a vulgar manner, hands straight down the front of his jeans, then pushed past his old friend with a crude remark.
"What in Sam hell happin'd to you Logan... Is you the man here or the wife?"
He finished the statement by clearing his throat and spitting a large chunk of brown tobacco on the pristine white carpet, before rubbing it in with his boot as an apologetic afterthought.
Logan felt the blood leaving his face and nearly fainted. He caught himself and quickly laughed and offered his guests a seat before scurrying off into the kitchen to regain his composure.
He pulled his collar away from his neck and realized he was perspiring profusely. If he couldn't calm the primitive and tactless demeanor of his guests there might be an issue, he greatly disliked an insulting faux-pas like correcting a guest's manners, but the ruffians in his dining room could not be reasoned with by way of common courtesy and the implied reciprocity.
A slurred howl came from the dimly lit adjacent chamber, apparently his guests were inebriated as well - just what he needed!
"Git off me you damn hog! You'll git your swill when the time comes, now shut yer pie-hole ya c!@#!"
Logan winced upon hearing the crudest of vulgarities, and peeked around the corner trying to do rapid damage control for the hopeless situation.
Both Remy and his companion (wife?) were holding each other by the hair and wrestling around the room trying to choke or claw their opponent. Remy grunted as a boot struck him in the lower area, then the wretched looking female snatched a vase from the table and shattered it across the hairy man's face.
"That's the last time you give me a b!@# j!@ in another man's house!" He screamed at her through a bloodied mouth and tried ripping her overalls with a rough jerk.
Logan noticed to his great dismay that the woman wore no undergarments beneath her ragged one-piece. An image of this creature fully unclothed flashed across his mind's eye for a split second and caused his heart to pound with horror.
Jean squeezed his arm and whispered angrily, "Do something, if they break our china YOU are buying us a new set!"
Logan tried to intercede into the no holds-barred melee with what he felt was a commanding voice, "Now if you'll just... excuse me... I don't perhaps... if you don't mind that is rather delicate.... I say, please calm down!"
Remy's face was beet-red as he shrieked at the woman, "Gretchen, I shoulda done never hauled you out of that restroom 'for them truckers had they fill of you ya filthy drunk!"
Logan was at the very last end of his immense reserve of patience. "That is quite enough! I am afraid I must ask you both to leave! I am sorry but this is a civilized home and not a place for rough-housing or debauchery!"
The vicious pair stopped fighting and Remy looked at Logan with a puzzled squinting gaze. "Now jus what'd you call me boy?"
Jean piped in shrilly, "Oh for goodness sake, please just leave at once!"
Remy pulled a half empty can of Pabst from his cut-off pocket and took a swill of the foul fluid. "This ain't concern you yet sweet-meat! Uhhhhnnn... You'll git yers when I'm done with your bigshot old man here, gonna fix him up nice and perdy... then we gonna play mommy an' daddy in the back room!" He gave Jean an ugly sneer.
Logan shrugged his shoulders, "Oh dear... That will not do at all, I'm afraid you have gone too far! That last remark was downright...uncalled for!"
He distastefully pranced over to the coat rack and retrieved a glove, before slapping the uncouth guest with it squarely across his face in the time-honored dueling tradition from a long-forgotten era - an era of chivalry and reserve.
Remy fished around in his pocket and drew out a handful of fishing lures. "Ehhhrrr that'll do!" He charged one and threw it at Logan's chest with lethal concussive force...
The resulting explosion blew both men out into the street, where they tumbled to a rough and dirty landing. Logan stood upright, then daintily dusted himself before a trio of blades shot forth from either fist and he squared off against his foe in the traditional boxer's stance, eager to teach this rascal a lesson in the gentlemanly art of fisticuffs, with extra Adamantium on top!
Remy leaned in low and brandished a skinning knife with a wild look in his eyes, "I'm gonna show you how my pappy taught me ta' skin a wild boar! Jus' like we do in swamp co'ntry!"
Logan retorted swiftly, "Your father WAS a wild boar, you simple ignoramus! Now defend yourself rapscallion!"
This is my personality flip-flop match for the May challenge! Vote on winner and set-up please!

Depending on the versions of the characters, they could both be counted as villains.
Well kind of true I guess. Age of Apocalypse Wolverine actually is a villiain. So he could have used that version who turns good and Gambit who turns bad. However like he said he still has 4 days like the rest of us to get our matches finished completely.

No he isn't. Have you been reading current Age of Apocalypse thats going on? Wolverine is the lead villain in that world after Apocalypse died.

Remy seems all rough-and-tumble when he's dealing with his "woman", but we don't know how this version would handle himself in a real fight. Same with this very-refined Logan.
Eh, I'll give this one to the dainty Logan. Since he seemed to shrug off the exploding fishing hook easy enough, he could probably take most of what the backwoods Remy could dish out.
As mentioned, though, it may be tough to see how this would qualify for the challenge.

A Excellent setup. I liked the story of Gambit coming to visit Logan who is with jean after all these years and having fallen down a bit in life.
A A scenario that almost seems to come straight out of a weird '60 sitcom! Nice!
A It was a good setup, but I f***ing HAAATE Gambit he is the worst character ever. I'm still givin' you an A, but I wanted to voice that opinion.
