Nerd War! #12
It’s a Nerd War! To reiterate Nerd War is our competition of who should be named best Marvel character of 2011/12! Each week one of us will nominate a character and give you a summary of their origins, love interests, and personality. The person who nominated the character will be on the For side for the character to go through, where as the other person will be against! This is a debate – and only the best will survive! It doesn’t matter if the character is good or evil, human, mutate, alien, mutant or the Juggernaut. They just have to be a Marvel Character. But with loads of characters, it might be a long wait before we get to round two .
This week’s nomination by X2 is Rogue!
Orgin: Her name is Anna Marie, but she doesn’t know her last name. Born in Mississippi into a hippy family , Anna Marie was a Rogue, she ran away from home in her teens. Rogue wasn’t able to touch people without hurting them and the annoying Rogue In X-Men: The Animated Series, made that very clear by saying it all the time! Having the villain Mystique as her stepmother lead her into the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. A traumatizing moment for Rogue was when she absorbed Ms Marvel’s powers.
Love Interest: If only it was only Gambit… ahhh, But no Rogue sort of had a relationship with a boy called Cody who she then sent to hospital with the kiss of death 😉 And her relationship with Magneto shouldn’t even be mentioned … (Pukes)
Personality: At some points Rogue seems quite vulnerable, obviously she’s a Rogue, she’s a individual and just a super cool Mutant, she can make quite funny remarks especially towards the beloved Gambit. Don’t let the vulnerability fool you, because she will put you in a coma.
Powers and Abilities: Rogue has the power to absorb powers, emotions, memories, personality, physical abilities etc by touching you, before this used to be an uncontrollable power but now she has the ability to choose when to use it, so she is now able to touch. After absorbing Ms Marvel’s powers permanently Rogue has the ability to fly and Superhuman strength. Rogue also has the durability of a Superhuman. Rogue is able to fight quite well, apparently Gambit helped her, and she can speak Fluent-French, random but true.
|X1′s Opinion:||X2′s Opinion:|
|Do I really need to explain why Rogue should go through to the next round? No. But, to be democratic and let our viewers know that this truly isn’t a fix, I will explain. ROGUE IS FRICKIN’ AWESOME, IT’S ALMOST CRIMMINAL! Rogue is filled with sass, attitude and a whole lot of hottness. Yeah, yeah, I get that Rogue doesn’t have the best taste in guys *gives side eye to Magneto* but she sure knew how had to make Gambit fall in love with her. If only she justs married him! Rogues powers are just amazing! The more she learns about her powers, the more powerful she’ll be able to become! She’d could possibly become even more powerful than the Phoenix itself! Just think about it, a fight against Rogue and Phoenix – I’ve got my money on Rogue. What’s this nonsense about 90’s X-Men Rogue being annoying? She was the best Rogue! BTW I am totally hating X2 for that mental pic of Cable and Wade! I don’t think I have to explain anymore + I am really sick…||First of all, it is Rogue, that is a good enough reason in itself, even though I do not love her as much as X1 I still know that Rogue is awesome, Her powers and abilities are just amazing even though they may be a big reason why she and Gambit are apart. Her romance with Gambit is the romance of Marvel history, forget about Magneto and that Cody boy. Rogue and Gambit are perfect for each other. The whole Rogue and Magneto fiasco was a slight disappointment (WTH were you thinking!) I love Magneto and everything but putting them together made as much sense as making Cable and Deadpool date. Rogue will loose a few points for her relationship, but not too many, because of Gambit.. Rogue is an individual who stands out, she is someone who doesn’t really care about other people’s opinions, sometimes she can be a bit vulnerable, but I guess everyone has that in them. Rogue is involved in amazing story lines and is known by so many non- Marvel fans. In every way possible this chick should get through to the next round. She is just so awesome it is unbelievable. If you search X-Men on Google her name shows up, in some occasions when you write Marvel on Google her name shows up. There are so many reasons for Rogue to get through and I support almost every single one.|
X1: For – 9; Against – 1 .
X2: For- 8; Against- 2.
Rogue gets through to the next round – but a bet you worried then, right ;)?
