Powers/Abilities: Rogue is a mutant with the superhuman ability to absorb people's memories and powers through touch, to keep herself safe she wears a skin-tight costume covering every inch of her body except for her head. Although on one account she's seen absorbing Jean Grey's powers through her gloves. Rogue has the ability to fly and has superhuman strength it's been unrevealed if she gained these powers by "stealing" them from another superhuman (the Carol Danvers of the Mangaverse only obtained powers years later and Alice Ellwood the original Ms. Marvel was a powerless professional wrestler). Rogue also had green hair, if this is part of her mutation has been unrevealed.
Hair: Green with two white streaks
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men - BTS) - Rogue became part of the X-Men where she befriended her teammates: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Moonstar, Storm and Wolverine.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men (fb)) - During a particular sunny day the X-Men enjoyed a day at the pool while Rogue felt like an outcast, longing for human contact of any kind.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight) - Learning of the impeding attack on Stark Island by the joined forces of the enormous Hulk, Namor and his Atlantean army and Baron Strucker's Hydra in an effort to summon the elder god Dormammu the X-Men decided to go and help. Upon arrival at Stark Island, Rogue and the X-Men easily tore through the hordes of Hydra soldiers until Prince Namor himself attacked the team, keeping them busy long enough for Baron Strucker to successfully summon Dormammu. Unable to defeat Namor themselves, the X-Men were rescued by the Fantastic Four, who amongst other heroes had joined the fight. However, with Dormammu's arrival the heroes seemed unable to stop or even harm him and the enormous Hulk. It wasn't until Doctor Strange realized Dr. Bruce Banner himself was a conduit to the Ethereal Realm they summoned the thunder god Thor to deal with the Hulk and his master Dormammu. He called upon the might of Rogue and all other heroes to gather enough strength to defeat the enemy.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men (fb)) - Through unrevealed means Rogue came in touch with the electromagnetic demon Magnus who, through regular visits, helped Rogue feel again, despite her powers. Magnus shared he wanted a physical form, something which Rogue was determined to help the demon with unaware he sought revenge on sorceress Amanda Sefton.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men) - Rogue sought out Amanda Sefton, finding her villa on top of a New York skyscraper, Sefton welcomed the young mutant.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men - BTS) - Rogue's disappearance didn't go unnoticed as the X-Men decided to go and find her. In their search, Wolverine and Moonstar ran into the foul Nightcrawler after which they learned she'd gone looking for the sorceress Amanda Sefton. Back at the X-Mansion, Jean and Storm found Rogue's diary and learned of Magnus' involvement. Storm, formerly part of a witches coven, had previously dealt with Magnus and realized that Sefton would seize the opportunity to kill Magnus for destroying the witches coven. The X-Men feared Sefton would go after their friend Colossus, since his metal body was the only one who could sustain Magnus. Determined to stop Sefton and Magnus they set out to locate her.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men - BTS) - Making her move, Sefton placed a spell on Rogue, her magical tattoo's negated Rogue's mutant powers allowing her to feel again.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men) - Just as the X-Men arrived to save Rogue, Sefton used her magical abilities to transfer Magnus from Rogue's body to that of Colossus. However, the demon, now possessing Colossus easily murdered Sefton. Horrified, the X-Men attacked Magnus, but thanks to the body of Colossus he easily managed to defeat the superheroes. Realizing she was all that was left to save her friends, Rogue absorbed the powers of Storm and Jean Grey, causing her appearance to resemble that of the Phoenix. With newfound powers, Rogue successfully separated Magnus from Colossus, without a host form, Magnus dissipated into the atmosphere. However, with the threat dealt with Rogue realized Jean's powers had mixed with the magic left in her body, feeling changed and cold, Rogue panicked and quickly flew away leaving her friends behind, confused of what had transpired.
(X-Men Unlimited I#37 (fb) - BTS) - Rogue was one of numerous Rogue duplicates summoned to Earth-616 via a plot involving Mephisto manipulating the mutaphobic Mr. Thatchel and the interdimensional being Hutch. Mephisto and Thatchel sought to summon mutants from all realities to Earth-616 and then destroy that world.
(X-Men Unlimited I#37) - Ultimately, Hutch rejected Mephisto's plan and returned to the interdimensional space from which he had come; Rogue and all the other alternate reality mutants were presumably returned to their own realities.
Comments: Created by Ben Dunn.
It's a shame that when X-Men: Ronin#1 was published a year later there was no sign of Rogue and Moonstar, no comment was made about their absence. Still three years down the line in New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#1 Nick Fury (hating playing second fiddler to the superhuman community) and the Hand had developed a special virus to target and eradicate mutantkind, it seems likely Rogue would've been affected and died from this virus.
The black spirals seen on Rogue's costume in the main image were part of Amanda Sefton's incantation not of her costume.
Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.
