|Rogue's mutant abilities are both fantastic and tragic. Able to temporarily absorb the memories and powers of others, she is one of the most powerful mutants of all. Due to the nature of her power, however, she is unable to allow her skin to make casual contact with anyone else, as she learned during her very first kiss. A young runaway from Mississippi, Rogue was taken in by Mystique and Destiny who raised her to be a part of their criminal exploits and a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. On her first mission, Rogue used her mutant ability on the heroine Ms. Marvel, but unable to fully control her powers, Rogue absorbed Ms. Marvel's memories and powers permanently. Although she gained super-strength, near invulnerability and flight from the encounter, she also became distraught over her lack of control. Rogue quickly realized she was a danger to others and sought the help of the X-Men who took her in and made her a member of their team. |
