Rogue (fuck yeah!) logo

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.


Rogue and the at-the-time-newb X-Men Psylocke, Dazzler and Longshot are in Scotland. So is Juggernaut, and you know what that means. In the course of the fight they take out a huge chunk of railway line, but a packed commuter train is barreling down the track. Well, fuck.

While the others keep Jugs busy …

Uncanny #218: Rogue v. Train

Train's coming, just stick out your hands and brace yourself. AS YOU DO.

The fight continues, but Rogue’s having some trouble.

Uncanny #218: Not quite working as planned.

ROGUE KNOWS PHYSICS.

The train’s getting closer …

Uncanny #218: Train in vain.

That's a big fucking crater.

And CLOSER …

Uncanny #218: Rogue pissing off British Rail with every "raka".

OH SHIT.

Juggernaut’s defeated, Betsy and Ali have a brief congratulatory moment, then remember something big, important, and about to land on their heads.

Uncanny #218: Feeling old by 21.

AND HER SHOES ARE STILL PERFECT.

Rogue. Single-handedly stopping a speeding train with inches to spare yet still has the energy for a joke. FUCK YEAH.

From Uncanny X-Men #218 by Chris Claremont and Marc Silvestri.

    I LOVE that badass expression she’s making in the second panel up top.

      Isn’t it fantastic? Early Silvestri is very rough, but that’s part of its charm. He has a great way with facial nuance I think.
