When I picked up my first X-Men comic back in the 80s, I quickly realized one thing: Rogue is bloody awesome. It is truth. It is law.
Every Wednesday I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it.
Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH.
The X-Men just want to have a day off and play baseball and shit but fuck that noise, they’re the X-Men. They get in a fight with this indestructible time-traveling sentinel named Nimrod and he beats the ever-loving shit out of everyone.
Except guess who? ROGUE, THAT’S WHO.
Rogue absorbs Shadowcat, Colossus and Nightcrawler and gains the power of LOOKING EVEN MORE BADASS.
So she swats him with a steel I-beam because OF COURSE, what else would you do in a construction site? When that’s not enough:
The finishing touch?
Then Nimrod teleports away like the bitch he is and Rogue tells Juggernaut to fuck off too or she’ll kick his ass next.
Rogue. FUCK YEAH.
