When Rogue was thirteen years old, she put her boyfriend Cody in a coma when her absorbtion powers manifested during her first kiss. After her father rejected her for being a mutant, Rogue ran away from home. She became the adopted daughter of Mystique. Rogue then permanently absorbed the superhuman powers and a copy of the consciousness of the superheroine Ms. Marvel. She began to have "flashes" of the Ms. Marvel persona, causing her to leave the Brotherhood. She then reformed and joined the X-Men.
Rogue spoke in a sassy Southern accent and generally had an attitude of good-humored irreverence. Despite this, she harbored deep, usually hidden feelings of isolation. These feelings of isolation eventually led her to consider taking the mutant "cure" that was really just a ploy by Apocalypse and Mystique to transform mutants into the former's willing soldiers. Rogue eventually decided against taking this "cure" after saving Jean with her powers, deciding that it was she who owned her powers, not the other way around. Rogue also fought with the absorbed Ms. Marvel persona after it began to manifest itself. She had dizzy spells, and had to fight the former superheroine for control of their shared body.
Eventually, Rogue faced Ms. Marvel within her own mind with Jean's assistance. This battle ended with Jean trapping Ms. Marvel within a psychic cage, not removing, but simply quieting her once more with Rogue tearfully telling the other woman that she was sorry. Rogue then promptly rejected her foster mother Mystique, saying "I ain't your daughter Mystique. Not anymore." before flying away with Storm. Rogue also mentioned that what Mystique had done made her "Worse then a killer." Rouge visited Carol in the hospital, telling the nurses her name and saying that they were very close with tears in her eyes. Gambit flirted with her often, and though she felt equally attracted to him, her fear of harming him with her powers caused her to push him away. This did not stop her from taking his last name during a mission to help Samuel Guthrie, calling herself Ms. LeBeau.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Rogue is a Mutant, who permanently absorbed the superhuman powers and mind of Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel.
Power Absorption: Can absorb the powers, energies, memories, knowledge, talents, personality and physical abilities (whether superhuman or not) of another human being (or members of some sentient alien races) through physical contact of her skin with the skin of the other person. Her use of this power is involuntary. It has been shown numerous times that the powers Rogue absorbs can overwhelm her, as was the case with Archangel and Juggernaut. Rogue has shown that, because she has already completely absorbed her mind, she can safely touch Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel. Her powers do not work on completely mechanical beings, but Cyborgs and Techno-Organic beings are affected by her power. This power typically renders those affected by it unconscious, and can be lethal if she holds on for too long.
Superhuman Strength: Rogue is able to lift around the same amount of weight that Ms. Marvel was. Thus, she was capable of lifting about fifty tons at her peak.
Superhuman Durability: The tissues of her body are considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than those of an ordinary human. Rogue is capable of withstanding high caliber bullets, great impact forces, falls from great heights, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.
Flight: Rogue is capable of propelling herself through the air at tremendous speeds, around half the speed of sound.Telepathic Resistance: Rogue possesses a duplicate of Ms. Marvel's psyche, and her "double" consciousness makes her resistant to telepathic probes from even the most powerful mind readers such as Jean Grey and Professor Xavier.
AbilitiesRogue possessed access to the abilities of Carol Danvers in addition to her own.
Strength levelClass 50
Her absorption power is involuntary, leaving her with no choice but to wear gloves and be careful not to touch others.
