Rogue is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. She debuted in Avengers Annual #10 (November 1981) as a villain, but then soon after joined the X-Men.
Rogue is part of a subspecies of humans called mutants, who are born with superhuman abilities. Rogue has the involuntary ability to absorb and sometimes also remove the memories, physical strength, and superpowers of anyone she touches. Therefore, Rogue considers her powers a curse. For most of her life, she limited her physical contact with others, including her on-off love interest, Gambit; but, after many years, Rogue finally gained full control over her mutant ability.

Intelligence: Even without her powers she is skilled enough to defeat a horde of aliens, best an alien captain in a sword fight, defeat several Morlock clones in hand-to-hand combat and take down armed thugs with Gambit's staff. She has also shown capabilities in piloting, planning and attack pattern detection.
Weaknesses: If she touches an enemy briefly, she only retains the powers for a limited time. Sufficiently strong wills, such as that of Spiral, can override her own, and possess her. She can be overloaded, such as when trying to absorb the power of the star-splitting technarch Magus.
Notable power sets that she has absorbed:
- Human Torch
- Hulk and She-Hulk
- Thor (Natural abilities only)
- Scarlet Witch (Had no control over it and was more of a disadvantage than an advantage)
- Professor X

Note 2: She has an upper limit to how much power she can absorb, and couldn't handle that of the technarch Magus.
