The team debuted in the pages of Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk's short-lived but critically acclaimed Marvel Comics series Captain Britain and MI-13.

"I loved that book," Asmus told Comic Book Resources. "The original Excalibur series is one of the most influential comics to me and one of my favourite comics.

"It was the first X-Men book I ever got and I followed it through its various permutations. Probably the biggest highlight of the book's later years was Pete Wisdom, as created by Warren Ellis.

"So the Paul Cornell-Leonard Kirk run of Captain Britain and MI-13 was one I really enjoyed and wished lasted longer. We actually got Leonard Kirk to do some extra pencils setting up the next arc.

"So all that's left is for me to give Paul Cornell my job writing Gambit and the tribute will be complete!"

Asmus described the storyline as a "high stakes espionage" tale.

The arc will launch in Gambit #5 on November 14, with art by Cornell's Demon Knights collaborator Diogenes Neves.
