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.
Due to injuries suffered many many issues ago, Rogue is currently powerless. She and Gambit took time off to heal and settled in that most rare of places, a town that’s mutant-friendly. So of course it’s only a matter of time before all that goes to shit.
Bad Things start happening around the town, and a group of unruly kids with super powers are beating the everloving fuck out of everything that moves. Rogue doesn’t take kindly to this behaviour.
Being upstanding citizens, they of course realize the error of their ways.
The woman’s fought Juggernaut and the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club and Sentinels but sure YOU are the baddest of the bad, got it.
How do the kids react? How else can they react?
ABJECT TERROR. But she’s not done yet.
You’ve made her stand up. There’s no turning back now.
Rogue. Facing a dozen violent mutant gangbangers without a single power to her name and intimidating the shit out of them. FUCK YEAH.
