Probably my favourite x-man after Wolverine, Rogue is a total badass! Her powers involve "stealing" other mutants abilities and memories. After absorbing Ms Marvel's (Carol Danvers) powers she also found that a copy of Carol's mind was stuck in her head. This is what led to Rogue seeking out the help of Professor X and joining the X-Men
I grew up with the 90's X-Men cartoons and I really resonated with the mutants, as a British, Pakistani Muslim I often find myself a refugee in a sense. Both England and Pakistan is my home but I'll never be full accepted in either place because I'm too much of one and not enough of the other. But I'm not alone, Millions of people are in a similar situation, cultural refugees, looking for a home where we will be accepted.
In the words of My Chemical Romance "If we can't find where we belong then we will have to make it on our own". This is where the Rogue quote comes into play - The Avengers are the All-Star heroes, mostly accepted by society, working hard to keep the world safe. The X-Men and the other mutants however, have been discriminated against, put into concentration camps, experimented on - because they are different. The X-Men strive to make the world a better place for all. Something to reflect on (it took me ages to find a non sexualised image of Rogue)
Excuse me, big child coming through!
Pipe down, they’re not toys. They’re action figures 🤓🤣 That’s my argument. I’ve always loved Marvel and maybe deep down actually prefer it to DC 🤭 If you ever watched the early 90s animated series of The X-Men or read the comics, you would understand. It wasn’t just a cartoon and its content is still so relevant to today’s society. Anyway, that’s me attempting to justify why I have these 🤣 Rogue is awesome and her merch is limited. I was lucky enough to find this.
"You built these weapons to destroy us. Why?! Because you're afraid of our gifts. Because we are different. Humanity has always feared that which is different. Well I'm here to tell you....to tell the world, you're right to fear us. We are the future! We are the ones that will inherit this earth! And anyone who stands in our way will suffer the same fate as these men you see before you. Today was meant to be a display of your power. Instead I give you a glimpse of the devastation my race can unleash upon yours. Let this be a warning to the world. And to my mutant brothers and sisters out there, I say this; no more hiding. No more suffering. You have lived in the shadows of shame and fear for too long. Come out. Join me. Fight together in a brotherhood of our kind. A new tomorrow....that starts today!"
