"We're going superheroing."- The Rogue & Storm Perfect Duo Appreciation
i prefer Logan Rogue but Logan Storm could be interesting to. They hinted at a relationship in the past but as of late they only appear to be close friends with. Nobody wanted to see Rogue and Magneto finally get together. . His brief relationship with Storm was without a doubt one of the strongest of. But if you ever watched the Fox show, Rogue and Storm were basically age difference between the two so their relationship is a bit different.
One such relationship that actually straddles the line between the two aforementioned realizations is between X-Force teammates Shatterstar and Rictor. For years, these two have been close. The moment was historical. Fans who saw this coming and who often refer to the relationship as RicStar, because the internet loves portmanteaus like this and RickChone when it comes to couples in pop culture and rightfully vindicated in their assumptions. Sadly, the couple was casually dismissed for a spell in an issue of the solo Iceman series, which sort of cheapened things despite treating the relationship as the new norm as it should be.
But perhaps Rictor hitting on Bobby Drake could present a new love triangle, which is pretty common in X-books. To make matters even more bizarre, the relationship between these two make Raven appear a bit more desperate and weak willed than we would have thought her to be before. Now, to be fair this relationship certainly helped create the shape-shifting tough cookie we know today, but man, it was not a fun experience. First Class almost cringeworthy. Warren has had a tough go of things since he was firs introduced way back in in The X-Men 1.
Betsy helped Warren keep his murderous Archangel personality under control to some degree, letting the razor-winged death machine come out and play when things got hairy for the team. Why was Scott shacking up with a woman who has been known to be manipulative and was once a villain?
It was a huge departure from the tender heart of Jean Grey. But when they are together, there is a certain energy that no other couple in the X-Men universe can duplicate -- the pure animalist attraction and the deep desire these two have for each other is palpable on the page. Arguably the biggest injustice fans have experiences so far is that these two have not been in a film together.
In fact, the versions of both characters who have appeared in the X-Men films seem to exist in different timelines.
The title of the storyline takes its name from the William Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet, which is pretty apropos because this comic run is all about some horribly dysfunctional romance that not just toys with the precipice of creepy, it does a running jump right off that cliff.
The early aughts was a weird time for Uncanny X-Men. The relationship between Angel and Husk even manages to sneak in one of the most infamous moments in X-Men history where these tow star-crossed lovers engage in an intimate act while flying through the air… with family and team members watching.
Yeah,we know… 4 BEST: All the teen angst, cliques, and adjustment periods to going to a new school are present right up front. And so are the romances or at least the pursuit of them. These two are complete opposites in just about every possible way. Trevor is a bit awkward and it trying hard just to fit in and accept the fact he is literally covered in eyeballs, and Lin is a self-ostracized version of a Disney Princess who believes that animals she is able talk to are far more interesting than any of her fellow students.
But Trevor has a thing for Lin. Anna Marie was a rebellious child  and, at some point, the exact event or reasons still unclear, she ran away from home as a young teenager. At some point, Rogue grew close to a boy named Cody Robbins. During their flirtation, Cody impulsively kissed her, at which point her latent mutant power to absorb the life energy and psyche of others with skin-to-skin contact emerged.
Rogue was traumatized by the experience, and Cody was left in a permanent coma. She wished she "did not have to cover up so much around folks" to protect them from her. She thought her power was a curse. It is a storyline that appeared in a run of the series " X-Men Forever ".
Rogue initially wants only a normal life, but after she kisses a boy named Cody, unintentionally rendering him unconscious with her power, she gives up on normality and begins taking part in Mystique's plans. Blindspot and Rogue become good friends, but when Mystique decides to sever professional ties with Blindspot, Blindspot erases all memory of her from both Mystique and Rogue. Mystique concocts a plan to free the other members of the Brotherhood by having Rogue absorb Ms.

Marvel's psyche and powers is permanent. Rogue then throws her off the Golden Gate Bridge. She battles the Avengers using her newly acquired powers. Though Rogue proves more than a match for them, the four of them escape the Pentagon.
Rogue develops a grudge against Dazzler for her controllable mutation and her relationship with Angel of the X-Men. Rogue is defeated by Dazzler a few times before Dazzler is publicly revealed to be a mutant and goes into hiding.
However, when Rogue seized an opportunity to use her power on him, she experienced both his loneliness and his nobility. This moment had a profound effect on her and served as a crucial turning point in her life. Marvel is a completely distinct, albeit dormant, personality in her head, and Mastermind subtly exacerbates Rogue's psychological distress as a means of revenge against Mystique. The Professor is unable to do a psychic scan of her, due to the clashing human and Kree portions of her psyche, but nonetheless decides to not only welcome her into the school, but make her a probationary member of the X-Men.
The X-Men threaten to leave the school should Rogue be accepted, even though none of the active members aside from Storm and Nightcrawler had even met Rogue before. However, Xavier is adamant and convinces the X-Men to stay.
She refuses, arguing that it might kill him, but this only serves to gain his trust, and Wolverine touches her to transfer his power anyway. Under Danvers' control, Rogue invades the S. Helicarrier to rescue Rossi. Her natural persona begins fighting to regain control, and for several minutes Rogue rapidly switches back and forth between the two personalities.
Though she ultimately regains control, the incident leaves the Anna Marie persona wracked with guilt over what she did to Carol Danvers. Roma, a prisoner of the Adversary and guardian of the multiverse, recreates the fallen X-Men from scratch, making her own minor alterations. Now invisible to cameras and all forms of detection equipment, the X-Men resettle to Australia, defeating the Reavers and claiming their base in the Outback as a new base of operations.
The island nation of Genosha's super powered agents, the Press Gang, capture Rogue and Wolverine, and Wipeout fully cancels their abilities. Rogue is then sexually molested by her guards. She withdraws into her subconscious, and the Carol Danvers persona takes advantage of her distress by assuming control. Marvel's uniform during battle, as well as redecorating Rogue's room to her own tastes without her permission.

Sacrificing herself to stop the Master MoldRogue is pulled through the Siege Perilouswhere she is judged by other-dimensional forces with the promise of a "new life. She finds it has been taken over by the Reavers in her absence, and the now physically separate Danvers persona attacks her. Rogue flees, absorbing the powers of the mutant Gateway in order to teleport herself to safety.
She ends up in the Savage Landand spends the ensuing days learning how to survive in the inhospitable land. She is eventually attacked again by Danvers, who is now under the mental enslavement of the Shadow King. There is not enough life-force between the two to sustain both Rogue and Danvers physically as a result of the separation, and Rogue is unwilling to kill Danvers.
With Danvers on the verge of draining Rogue's life completely, Magneto intervenes and kills the Ms. Art by Mike Wieringo and Terry Austin. The X-Men later divides into two teams to make better use of their large number of active members; Rogue is assigned to the Blue Team, under the leadership of Cyclops and alongside new X-Man Gambit. Upon his arrival, Gambit flirts with each of the female members of the team, however Rogue immediately catches his eye, and he makes no secret of his romantic desire for her.
He is later abducted by assassins sent by Gambit's ex-wife, Bella Donna Boudreauxas part of a revenge plot against Rogue. He is used as a pawn in the ensuing fight between Rogue and Candra and eventually dies.
Cody holds no hard feelings against her, knowing what happened was an accident, and urges her to move on. Her even temper and years of X-Men service make her an ideal leader and she continues to lead the team until Storm returns. Z'Cann purposely touches Rogue to activate the mutant's abilities as the two evade bounty hunters.
Z'Cann uses her telepathy to amplify Rogue's capacity to assimilate memories, causing her powers to mutate. The team's first mission was in search of Destiny's Diaries which prophesied future events. During an invasion of Khan an alien conqueror from another dimension of the island nation of MadripoorRogue requested that Sage use her power of jump-starting abilities to evolve Rogue to a point where she could control all of the various powers that she has ever imprinted.
Sage agreed, and Rogue became a one-woman army, able to use the powers of anyone she had absorbed in the past all at once. Vargas foresaw himself being killed by Rogue in Destiny 's diaries and, despite his belief in the prophecies, attempted to stop this occurrence from happening.
Thus, in the midst of the invasion battle, Vargas ambushed Rogue as she was trying to rescue Gambit see X-Treme X-Menspearing both Rogue and Gambit with his blade before escaping. Rogue survived due to possessing both Wolverine's and Hulk 's powers. Returning to the city shortly after the battle to recover his sword, Vargas was surprised in turn by Rogue dressed in Psylocke's costume Vargas having killed Psylocke earlier for sport.
After a lengthy battle, Rogue "fulfilled her destiny" by seemingly finishing Vargas off with his own weapon. Returning to Gambit, Rogue, with the help of Jean Greyforced him from near death in the astral plane. She also learned that she had inherited a mansion in New Orleans from Destiny, as well as a sizable fortune, and the X-Treme X-Men team retired there to recuperate.
Rogue soon left the team with Gambit, since they both emerged powerless from their ordeals and wanted to explore their relationship further. She worked as a motorcycle mechanic, while Gambit was often "on the road" implying he was thieving or on missions with Storm.
She subsequently received a visit from Bishop and Sage and, after a series of events involving an investigation into the murder of a human girl's family, Rogue and Gambit signed up with Bishop and Sage to help Storm's X-Treme X-Men stop Sage's enemy and former boss Elias Bogan.
After the battle, Rogue asked Sage to restore Gambit's abilities, which she did. Gambit asked if the same could be done for Rogue's powers, but it was never revisited after Rogue quickly dismissed his comment.
Over time, Rogue's own abilities returned, although exactly how and when was never revealed or discussed. However, she no longer possessed the abilities she had absorbed from Ms.
Rogue and Gambit were both put on Havok 's team and participated in various missions. While there, she met Campbell St. Ange, a young man who was immune to Rogue's lethal touch. Also while there, Rogue forcibly absorbed knowledge from her Aunt Carrie that explained that Rogue's mother had traveled to the Far Banks, a dream-realm, to stop her father from getting there himself.
Rogue encountered the incorporeal spirit of her mother therein, and absorbed her memories. After the reunion, her mother's trapped spirit could finally move on. Rogue subsequently went back to her Aunt Carrie and made amends with her. During this ordeal, as the result of Golgotha influence, Rogue and Gambit got into a fight about the reality of their relationship with Rogue's uncontrollable powers. Gambit claimed they would have parted much sooner if they were always able to touch, that Rogue would have been "just another one-night stand".
He and Rogue then started passionately kissing each other until her power began to affect him and Emma Frost telepathically interrupted. In this storyline, Rogue accidentally and permanently absorbed Sunfire's fire abilities who has lost his legs to Lady Deathstrike and did not want to live.
Rogue then discovered that Gambit was being seduced by the student called Foxx. It is later revealed, however, that Mystiquedispleased with Rogue's choice of lovers, infiltrated the Xavier Institute by shapeshifting into Foxx and joined Gambit's squad in an attempt to ruin his relationship with Rogue.
After Gambit resisted her charms, Mystique reverted to her true form and offered Gambit something more difficult to refuse: Whether or not they actually engaged in a sexual relationship is uncertain although Gambit insists that nothing happened. Rogue eventually discovered her foster mother's presence in the school and her attempts to seduce Gambit, becoming furious with both parties.
Because Gambit failed to tell Rogue of Mystique's presence in the Institute, their relationship developed the exact rift Mystique was hoping for and allowed her to set up her daughter with her accomplice, Pulse.
After being discovered, Mystique asked the X-Men for permission to stay at the mansion. The X-Men voted and Mystique was allowed to be a probationary member of the X-Men, a decision neither Rogue nor Gambit were happy with. Gambit, seeking redemption from Rogue and his fellow X-Men, volunteered to be transformed into his horsemanDeath. Gambit believed he could control whatever Apocalypse would do to him, in hopes of only gaining more power to protect Rogue and the X-Men from the villain.
After Apocalypse's defeat, Sunfire who was granted new legs and transformed into the horseman Famine and Gambit left the X-Men. Rogue's X-Men[ edit ] As Professor Xavier went into space with Havok and several other X-Men to go after the villain VulcanCyclops gave Rogue the authority to form her own team, complimenting her inspired improvisation in battle situations.
She was hesitant at first because of Gambit's recent disappearance with Sunfire, but accepted the position, saying that when he comes back she'd still be at the school.
Rogue's team defeated the group known as the Children of the Vault. Afterward, Rogue declared that her team would leave the X-Mansion. Rogue was hospitalized after a battle with Pandemic.
Cabledesiring Rogue's help in defeating the Hecatomb, forced Rogue awake. Pandemic infected Rogue with a virus, Strain 88, altering her powers by amplifying them into an instantaneous death-touch. In defeating Hecatomb, Rogue absorbed psyches of eight billion entities that had been stored inside it.
As Cyclops and Emma Frost arrived to help Rogue cope with the immensity of the voices in her mind, Marauders arrived, seeking the Destiny diaries.

As part of the attack, it was revealed that Mystique was working with the Marauders and for Mister Sinister. Mystique shot Rogue and took her back to Mr.Storm & Cyclops Save Wolverine & Rogue - X-Men (2000) Movie Clip
Sinister's base, who only kept Rogue alive because she held all the information of Destiny's Diaries within her mind. Sinister again, was protective of Rogue and accused Mystique of being too careless in how she captured her. Gambit was shown standing over Rogue trying to get her to wake up after she had fallen into a trance overcome by the minds she absorbedand expressed his apologies for what he had done before rejoining Sinister. Rogue had flashes of memories, both of she and Gambit during the time that they had known each other, and of the millions of minds she absorbed, while in her coma-like state before she briefly woke up and recognized Gambit.
