    most curious to see with Synch and Laura, as they've basically been gone for months in canon and aren't like the MOST high profile to begin with. Everyone else is buyable to me, especially with Sunfire getting votes from people who don't feel as represented by more traditional X-Men and probably by a less American group of mutants.

    I dont think everyone on the team will be elected on it. I think a couple may be selected, which is likely the case for Synch. Not only has he been MIA for months, he was dead for years prior. He's really not well known at all by the mutant community, but I can see Cyclops choosing him bc of the experience he gained in the Vault

    First Rogue Issue You Read?

    I honestly can't remember. It would have had to have been a 90s issue. I remember buying X-Men #80 back in the day, although that wouldn't have been my first. Otherwise, one of the first comics I got when I was getting back into comics was X-Men Legacy 259



    Favorite Team (with Rogue)?


    The Blue Team but the Outback team is a close second

    Preferred Powerset? Flying Brick or Solo Absorption?


    Flying brick, for sure, but I do love Solo Absorption when it's written well. I think it can be pretty interesting when she's not completely bullet-proof and needs to get creative with her powers.

    Favorite Underrated Rogue Writer?


    Oof, that's tough. May have to come back to that one.

    Favorite Rogue Artist?

    Coipel. I just love the way he draws expressions and think that he made Rogue a great combination of pretty and spunky

    I choose Solo Absorption. It's a pretty unique and interesting power. the battle scenes look just epic.


    Favorite Underrated Rogue Writer?

    I agree witch Seagle

    Favorite Rogue Artist?

    I can't choose! Clayman, Coipel, then Larraz. Jim Lee and Marc Silvestri - classic

    Happy to see more replies to the questions! Flying brick powerset got it's winning streak broken and Coipel seems to be leading the vote on favorite Rogue artist. I really miss seeing some of these artists on the books ;_;

    Sure!

    They are both powersets and 'versions' of Rogue that have been used in the past.

    Flying brick means a combination of flight, superstrength and invulnerability. It's a pretty common set among superheroes, though more common in DC than Marvel. What it means for Rogue is those standard abilities plus her basic absorption powers. For most writers, this means that Rogue will act as the 'muscle' of a group with occasional absorption scenes sprinkled in a run. Claremont was one of the few writers able to balance this aspect of her character.

    Rogue had this powerset from her debut to roughly around 2002, when she lost her powers temporarily. She gained a version of this powerset back around 2014 and currently still has it.



    Solo absorption just means her basic absorption abilities. She was briefly restricted to this powerset from 2004-05 and but this version of Rogue was made iconic due the X-Men Legacy era from 2009 to 2014. Mike Carey was the one that used this version of Rogue most creatively. While more vulnerable, the characters was forced to think on her feet and usually resulted in pretty unique power interactions like Rogue absorbing through an astral form like shown below.

    Can't remember

    Favorite team

    Supernovas (Rogue who runs her own suicide squad by Carey and Bachalo, it was just perfect)

    Preferred powerset

    Solo absorption

    Much more unique

    Favorite Underrated Rogue Writer

    Maybe Christos Gage

    I'd also be tempted to say Carey because he's just a genius and overall far too overlooked compared to other x-writers (I also feel like people focus too much on the Rogneto part)

    Favorite Rogue Artist

    Olivier Coipel <3

    Thanks a ton.
    Knowing this Solo Absorption seems far superior imo.As you said it does make her more vulnerable but gives us a much more creative use of her powers while The Flying Brick makes her boring and generic and in some instances OP.
    Under a good writer I can see that Flying brick will be better since she can still use her absorption creatively and the extra powers may allow her to put herself in more dangerous situations to use absorption more but for the majority makes her a brawler.Solo absorption gives much more creative use and can shine on her experience and skill while differentiating her from other brawlers.As said before this can all be done with Flying Brick but rarely and not to the same extent.

    Some sort of increased physical strength and durability is probably the most common superpower if you look at the genre as a whole.

    Lots of people who are not considered to be flying bricks can be. Any powerful telepath/telekinetic can increase their strength and durability. Ditto any magic user or high end energy manipulator.

    But Rogue’s power/personality absorbtion always made her unique.

    Plus when you have good writers there’s no need to constantly change people’s powers. Do a good job with characterization and put the characters in interesting situations.

    I liked Rogue and Gambit a lot better in their solo book than Excalibur, for example.

    I think a lot of people are underwhelmed by her absorption-only powers because of the movies (which shows what a lack of creativity the Fox movies had), but X-men Evolution and Carey proved she is wildly useful and powerful with just her absorption. I think that era would have been a lot better received had they explored her personal feelings of going from the strong, invulnerable woman to suddenly not, but Claremont gave her a break and Austen didn't care, so we didn't get much of anything there.
