Meeting Bobby Drake
Powers and Abilities
Rogue is a mutant:
Power Absorption: Can absorb the powers, energies, memories, knowledge, talents, personality and physical abilities (whether superhuman or not) of another human being (or members of some sentient alien races) through physical contact of her skin with the skin of the other person. She is not limited to absorbing superhuman abilities: for example, she has absorbed the strength, agility, and sharp reflexes of an enhanced, yet ordinary, human. She can also absorb psionic abilities. In absorbing another person's memories, Rogue also gains the emotional responses connected to them. For the transfer of abilities to be accomplished, Rogue’s skin must contact the skin of her victim. Rogue can only absorb abilities and memories from living organic beings. She can possess the powers of several superhuman persons at once. No upper limit has yet been determined for the number of superhuman beings whose power she can maintain simultaneously, or for the amount of power that she can absorb. Rogue can even absorb gross physical characteristics from a victim. Her physical appearance does not change when she absorbs abilities and memories from a normal looking human being. The victim's abilities and memories are absorbed for a time sixty times longer than the period of time Rogue was in physical contact with that person. While for most of her life, her use of this power was involuntary, Rogue has recently gained full control over it.
Her power is proved to be lethal. Mutants are proved to be stronger than humans because mutants have mutated genetics, which means that her power does less lethal effects for most mutants than humans. Her flirt, Cody Robbins, was in a coma for 3 weeks with just a brief touch. If she had touched Cody a bit longer, he had been already dead. It proves that if she touches her victim too long, she may kill her victim because of too much loss of energies due to the absorption, except if she voluntarily kills her victim with her deadly touch. Although mutants are stronger than humans, she can still voluntarily kill mutants with her deadly touch as she wishes. Although currently her power absorption power is much more controllable as she activates it by her own will, she can still make her touch lethal for her enemies but not lethal to her friends and/or allies.
As Rogue is absorbing the total psyche of a person, there is a risk of a personality overwhelming her and taking control of her body. It has also been shown that even though Rogue forgets the memories she has absorbed when a psyche returns to its body, 'echoes' of their personalities remain buried in her mind.
Rogue is able to absorb psyches and abilities of several beings at once, though the experience can be confusing and disorienting for her.
Robotic beings are mostly immune to her power. Depending on the amount of organics left, she can usually affect cyborgs. She seems able to affect techno-organic beings. Powerful enough beings can withstand her touch and attempt to impose their own will on her or cause a feedback loop.
- Template Recall : ability to recall any powers she had ever absorbed. When she first developed this power, Rogue would sometimes randomly sprout claws, steel skin, or even optic blasts.
Superhuman Strength: Rogue can be able to lift around the same amount of weight that the Hulk can. Thus, she was capable of lifting about 50 tons at her peak.
Superhuman Speed: Rogue was capable of running and accelerating to high speeds which a human could never achieve.
Superhuman Stamina: Rogue's musculature produced considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. She was able to physically exert herself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue began to impair her.
Superhuman Durability: The tissues of her body were considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than those of an ordinary human. Rogue was capable of withstanding high caliber bullets, great impact forces, falls from great heights, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.
Superhuman Agility: Rogue's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Reflexes: Her reflexes are heightened in a similar manner and are superior to those of the finest human athlete.
Flight: Rogue was capable of propelling herself through the air at tremendous speeds, around half the speed of sound.
Seventh Sense: Rogue was subconsciously able to anticipate the moves of her opponents, though this power was not exactly reliable and activated randomly.
Solar Flare: Rogue's mutant powers enable her to absorb solar and other radiation to generate the process of ionized matter (usually air) through a mentally-triggered unknown biochemical process so that it is converted to plasma, the superheated state of matter. Plasma is the state in which matter making up the sun exists; hence, Rogue refers to her projecting “solar fire”. Hence she can sheath her body in flame.
- Flight: can use her powers to create super-heated air currents which push her forward through the air. The speed Rogue can achieve in flight is not yet known.
- Plasma Blasts: ability to project the flames she generates as powerful blasts of energy.
- Heat Signature Sense: ability to sense beings by the heat signature that they give off.
- Plasma Shield: ability to manipulate the plasma around her to form an aura that can melt incoming bullets or stave off other attacks.
- Solar Shielding Psi-field: She is protected from the radiation she emits by a short-range psionic force field which automatically comes into being whenever air friction, and also prevents excessive amounts of light from the plasma from reaching her eyes so as to blind or damage them. Rogue's body emits a protective field whenever she uses her powers. However, it is speculated that she can generate power in excess of her natural protection.
Rogue has displayed acrobatic skills. Rogue can also speak fluent French. Rogue's skills also depend on who she has recently absorbed.
She can lift 50 tons.
Equipment: None known.
Transportation: None known.
Weapons: Rogue normally does not carry weapons. However, she will use a weapon if she has absorbed the skill to use it.
