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 Tuesday I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it.
Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH.
In the wake of M-Day, mutants are seriously boned. There’s less than 200 left in the world and Cyclops is freaking the fuck out. He offers amnesty to every mutant and invites them all to band together on Utopia which is kind of a stupid-ass idea to concentrate your entire endangered species on a tiny and easily nukeable island but whatever I guess what the fuck do I know. Magneto, unsurprisingly, accepts Cyclops’s offer, intending to do whatever necessary to protect what little homo superior has left.
This is his first mission.
But Magneto’s a smooth son of a bitch and he, like every straight teenage boy reading X-Men in the 90s, remembers that bit of nothing Rogue was wearing back in Uncanny #274.
Good times, good times.
I mean it was only Zaladane and nobody actually cared, but it was the PRINCIPAL dammit!
And what can Rogue hope to do with all this *ahem* magnetism between them?
Rogue. She’s through being charmed and her lips will damage your ego AND your day. FUCK YEAH.
