Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.
My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: The X-Men franchise
Known For: the ability to absorb other mutant's powers (and some physical attributes)
Rogue has a pretty rich story in Marvel's comic universe, which upon reading about her further, makes me want to check out the Captain Marvel line for her involvement with Ms. Marvel's powers (I also saw current Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue Deconnick in a panel at Portland's Comic Con last year which piqued my interest).
I imagine most people are familiar with Rogue through Anna Paquin's portrayal in the X-Men movies, where Rogue runs away after unintentionally hurting people, and joins up with Wolverine. Magneto tries to use Rogue for her power-stealing abilities, which is a source of conflict through the series. Anytime good vs. evil is featured, it's cool to see characters who struggle with how to use their power, and when they dissect perceived good and evil. Ultimately, Rogue must decide if she wants to be cured of her mutant powers, where she can freely touch others without harm.
Are you familiar with the X-Men universe? Who is your favorite character?
