I admit it, anything from Grant Morrison onwards just switches me off. Hundreds of mutants to thinks about, secondary mutations, decimation, Xorn etc - yawn.

Rogue and Gambit appeals to me, due to the focus on two classic X-Men. I'm more interested in the individual character characterisation that the relationship.

Whilst the comic does show this as a major part of the comic (as you would expect), it is still a nod back to the 90s storyline.

I'm going to follow it, as a nostalgic nod. Not sure how it is going to pan out, as the threat is still not clear. I'd give it a B-.

    Say what?! As much as her renewed power problem is a welcome reveal - it was TERRIBLE EXPOSITION and inorganic development too.


It's old news - Rogue lost control over her power again (groan) after absorbing Wonder Man in UA vol. 1 #5 (during Remender's abysmal run).

Although...
In UA vol. 3 #28, on the second page, Rogue puts her bare hand on Johnny's naked shoulder for a full three panels without absorbing him, but apparently neither of them notices. Could it be that Rogue has regained her control over her power now that Wonder Man no longer is inside her, only she (and the others) failed to realize it?

On a tangent - Is it my overly active imagination, inventing things that never happened, or was there actually a stage back in the day when Rogue got herself some arm tattoo's...?

    Especially after she absorbed Carol. Does she still have any of her power left?


She had her super-strength from permanently absorbing Carol, but in stories set before Avengers Annual #10 she doesn't have them. This applies e.g. to her two backup stories in Classic X-Men and in the stories in Marvel Super-Heroes Special (which would have appeared in the late 1970s had Ms. Marvel vol. 1 not been cancelled).

Rogue came back from the Siege Perilous without Carol's powers as the persona and powers Rogue had absorbed from Ms. Marvel were reincarnated separately (it's a long story), but following the death of that Carol revenant (UXM #269) the powers, but apparently not the personality, returned in UXM #275. Then, towards the end of X-Treme X-Men Rogue lost all her powers. Later on she regained her absorption power, but not Carol's powers. For a time she had Sunfire's powers, but she mostly used whatever powers she could absorb. Since Uncanny Avengers vol. 1 #5 she finds herself in permanent possession of Wonder Man's powers.
