Anonymous asked: Hey this may sound dumb but it has me really confused. I've noticed in a lot of comic book scans that other character's refer to Rogue as Legacy. Why is that? Did she absorb someone named Legacy and now their personality takes over sometimes or something? If you could answer this for me that'd really help! Thanks! (Love your blog and everything you post by the way! You're awesome!)
You’re certainly not dumb, it’s confusing. This has to do with a story-line/AU called Age of X, which was published in 2011. In that universe, Rogue was know as Legacy, or alternatively, Reaper.
It is brought up again because Rogue (and several other characters) retain their memories from that universe. In Age of X, Legacy was called in when a mutant was dying, and she would absorb their memories so that some part of them would live on. While Anna recognized that this was a good thing, it did make her feel like death incarnate. Also in Age of X, she had feelings for both Gambit and Magneto, and soon after they got back to the normal (616) universe, Rogue explores her feelings for Magneto, aka they hook up.

Anonymous asked: Você falou que nenhum escritor arrisca um enredo amoroso entre Rogue e Logan, não á um jeito de obriga-los a isso?? É algo tão popular mas ninguém poe a mão no fogo.
You said that no writer ventured a love story between Logan and Rogue, will no one force them to do it? It’s so popular but no one puts his hand in that fire.
The pairing of Rogue and Wolverine is much more popular in the movie-universe, but there are many people who do want those two to get together in the comic-universe. While it is clear that they care for one another, their hearts belong to other people, at least for now. I think the writers have enough love interests for the both of them - especially Logan, who’s somehow become the playboy of the Marvel universe - and so they don’t see the point in putting Rogue and Wolverine together romantically. As long as they are still close, I’m good with things the way they are. We can leave the love stories to the fan fiction writers. :)
(They are seriously sweet sometimes)

Anonymous asked: I know you're more of a fan of Rogan, but I personally ship Romy. Just wondering the pros and cons vs the two ships. (You don't have to do this if you don't want to.)
My favorite Rogue ship tends to change as often as the weather, but there are some pros and cons to both rogan and romy.
Rogue and Gambit have the sometimes pro, sometimes con that they are canon in most universes. That means they have long, and complex history together. But since this is Marvel we’re talking about, that also means they’ve had some horrible bits of drama, and the endless on-and-off again thing tends to get on people’s nerves.
Rogue and Wolverine have the opposite pro/con, as they’re not canon in any universe, but they are always close. This means they don’t have the romantic drama background, so you can let your imagination run wild - heaven knows that plenty of fan fiction writers have.
For fuller ‘ship info, I refer you to my ship blurbs that I did about a year ago:
Rogue and Gambit (aka Romy)
The longest lasting and most popular Rogue relationship is with the Ragin’ Cajun, Remy LeBeau. They’ve been comic book canon basically since the X-Men series started (1991), and have been “together” since X-Men #24, which was their first real date.
In the 90s animated show they had a relationship similar to what is seen in the comics, which helped popularize the couple. In X-Men: Evolution there were a few episodes with them, showing obvious chemistry, and despite them not meeting in the movie-verse, there is still a plethora of movie based fanfics where they hook up. Since these two characters have had a relationship for over two decades now, they’ve had their fair share of ups and downs. They’ve had the whole on-again-off-again thing going for a while, and their current separation has been exacerbated by the fact that she’s been seeing Magneto and joined the Avengers.
Why They’re Popular: He’s charming as hell, she’s sassy as heck. So you get some amazing dialogue, first off.
There’s also something fitting and charming about the idea that the girl who can’t touch anyone winning the heart of the man who could seduce any girl. And they’ve made it through some tough times (she can’t touch, he has secrets) and still love each other.
Strengths of Their Relationship: At the end of the day they’re best friends, and treat each other as such even when they’re not together. They support one another and strengthen each-other’s resolve.
They bring out some of the best aspects in one another. Rogue is more self confident when she’s with Remy, especially when it comes to interpersonal relationships. She’s more willing to share her emotions and open up. Remy is willing to put aside his salacious ways and open himself up to the possibility of having a relationship based on trust and love, not just the physical aspects.
Relationship Problems: For a long time, the big problem was Rogue’s inability to touch. Remy was a lady’s man, so the idea that having a relationship without sex was outlandish to him and he was tempted more than once.
While both Rogue and Gambit started out on the wrong side of the law, Rogue has been an X-Man far longer. Gambit still has his moments where he chafes under their rules and has his immature moments. Since they’ve been together so long, they both have done things to screw up their relationship. Remy lied about his wife, hid his past with the Marauders, willingly joined Apocalypse and Sinister, and even tried to kill Rogue as Death. Rogue was emotionally distant, physically untouchable, left Remy to die in Antarctica, and had unresolved emotional ties to Magneto from the off.
… And the boysenberry pie incident :)
Rogue and Wolverine (aka Rogan)
Not canon in any universe, the pairing got popular after the first X-Men movie. Despite the fact that Jean Grey was to be Logan’s love interest in the movies, as it has long been in the comics, there was little chemistry between those two, but plenty between the Southerner and the Canuck. In the movies, they were portrayed as friends, or sometimes they had a big brother/little sister thing. The X-Men: Evolution and Wolverine and the X-Men animated series had a similar dynamic, but also had moments where there appeared to be more than friendship going on. In the comic books they are old friends and comrades in arms, but not much else.
I know, I know. This happened. But they were under the control of the Golgotha and won’t have crossed this line otherwise, so it doesn’t count. Sorry. No, really I am.
Why They’re Popular: He’s a gruff loner and she’s shy with untouchable skin, but they almost immediately have a bond. She was able to see past his grumpy, deadly, animalistic exterior. He was willing to die to save her on the Statue of Liberty. They have an undeniable bond and they’re closer to one another than they are to anyone else in the mansion. And they’re so damn cute together!
Strengths of Their Relationship: They understand each other. They’re both deadly, both lonely, both unable to fit in, even with other mutants. Plus, Rogue’s gotten a pretty good glimpse into his mind, so she knows what he’s dealing with. Therefore, they trust and empathize with one another, but more than that, they support each other like no one else does. For her, that means having someone who will protect and care for her, for him it means having someone who won’t judge him for his baser instincts or his past.
Relationship Problems: That none of the screenwriters are willing to actually put them together. Ok, there are some other issues. First off, the age thing. While Wolvie doesn’t look it, he’s pretty friggin’ old (exact age varies between 60-130 depending on the verse) while Rogue is still a teenager. And one of her teachers, to boot.
And there’s the whole Jean issue. In most incarnations, Wolverine is in love with Jean Grey, although in the movie-verse that’s taken care of by her being dead. (Like anyone believes that “dead” really means “dead” for Jean Grey) So his emotions are at the very least split, except in a version like Evolution.
I like how DMX Stuff put it: “eye-sex to the max.”
