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 week I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it.
Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH.
There’s a troubled young mutant (aren’t they all) who goes by the name of Hellion. Rogue’s been acting as counselor for the kids because if anybody knows about how having mutant powers can fucking suck, it’s Rogue. Hellion’s been a particular focus.
Long story short, he’s been straddling the good/evil line for a while and when a series of events leads to him killing a fellow teammate, shit gets real. Even worse, Hellion shows no remorse for these events. He’s leaving an ultimatum-style meeting with Cyclops only to find Rogue waiting for him.
Rogue. She will straight cold throw a party when she kills you. FUCK YEAH.
