Rogue (real name Anna Marie) is a fictional character and a popular superheroine in the Marvel Universe, appearing as one of the main characters of the X-Men comics.
She is a prominent member of the X-Men, and has the ability to absorb someone's powers by simply touching the, but at risk of killing them in the process. She was originally a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, but later redeemed herself and became one of the core members, teacher, and leader of the X-Men.
Since her debut in the comics, she has appeared in numerous media. In the X-Men films, she was portrayed by Anna Paquin, who also played Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO tv series, True Blood.
She was created by Chris Claremont and Michael Golden, and first appeared in Avengers Annual 10 in August of 1981.
She suffers from the fact that due to her mutation she can never touch another living being without fear of absorbing their abilities and risk killing them in the process - this has made Rogue confused and angry in the past and continues to haunt her but she has broken away from her original role as a member of the Brotherhood and become a hero, fighting against the schemes of her own adoptive-mother - Mystique - as well as other villains such as Magneto.
Rogue is one of the "core" group of X-Men and as such she has appeared in almost all cartoons, movies and video games based on the comics and has had a romantic-relationship with Gambit since it was Remy who had the had most impact on her, of course a major drawback in their relationship was she could not make contact without harming him.
Rogue has the potential to be one of the X-Men's most powerful members due to her abilities, though whether she will ever be able to fully control them or not is still in question.
Anna Marie is the daughter of Owen and Priscilla, who married early in their relationship in Caldecott County, Mississippi, and Anna often spent time with her aunt Carrie. When Priscilla disappeared due to the commune's failed attempt to use the Native American mysticism to reach the Far Banks, Anna Marie was taken in by her aunt, who became a strict due to her sister's disappearance. Anna Marie was a rebellious child, and eventually ran away from her father when she was a teenager, prompting her to be nicknamed Rogue.
During this time, Rogue became attracted to Cody Robbins, and her powers manifested she began to kiss him impulsively. Her mutant powers began to absorb his life energy due to skin-to-skin contact, leaving him in a coma that he couldn't be awaken from. She was traumatized because of what she did, and began to wore clothes that concealed her body so she wouldn't nearly kill someone with skin contact. Rogue wasn't able to control her powers at first, and any contact with someone activated it, and she sometimes retained the memories of the peoples she touched. As a result, Rogue became a loner, and wished she didn't have to cover herself up to protect people.
Rogue was later approached by Mystique, and took the young mutant in as a daughter, and recruited her into the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Also, Mystique manipulated Rogue's emotions, as she turned her loneliness into bitterness and anger against her mutant powers and those who were prejudiced against mutants.
Rogue fought many superheroes, notably the X-Men, the Avengers, Ms. Marvel and Dazzler, and was a great enemy to the heroes due to her power absorption. During a fight with Ms. Marvel, Rogue gained her memories and powers permanently, and was later ordered to defeat the Avengers. When going to their headquarters, she managed to absorb Captain America and Thor, but was forced to retreat and regroup with the Brotherhood. Rogue later participated in the Brotherhood's attempt to release Destiny, but they were defeated by the Avengers, and Rogue and Mystique escaped.
Later on, Rogue fought Wolverine and Storm at the Pentagon, but was defeated when Storm threw her out with a cyclone. During a battle against ROM, the Brotherhood were captured again, but Rogue, Mystique and Destiny escaped after liberating the group from Windust Prison. The three renamed the group the Sisterhood of Evil Mutants, and the trio sought revenge against the X-Men. The trio decided to fight Angel, but Dazzler came to the rescue and defeated the three, causing Rogue to vow revenge against Dazzler. Rogue became envious of Dazzler's popular lifestyle, and defeated by her on numerous occasions, and eventually returned to Mystique after going against her to defeat the superheroine.
Rogue began to suffer great pain from Carol Danvers' memories, and turned to Professor X and the X-Men to stop it. She was attacked by Carol (now going by Binary), but Professor X welcomed her to the school, reminded his allies of their ideals, and invited her to live in the mansion. Rogue decided to become a member of the X-Men, and attended Wolverine's wedding, who was angered that she had joined the team. She later gained his trust by saving his fiancée's life Viper, and later became a valued and trusted member of the team by everyone. During a battle against Mastermind, Mystique attempted to rescue Rogue from the X-Men, but Anna Marie told Mystique that she had joined of her own free will.
