Anna Marie (a.k.a. Rogue) is the lone lost daughter of Wolverine. She is a mutant who can absorb the memories and/or mutant powers of others, though mentally uncontrollably. She is a young member of the X-Men. She is also Spider-Man's girlfriend.
Rogue was the product of genetic engineering by Weapon X, hoping to create powerful offspring of their former experiment, Wolverine. They began a series of experiments by taking Logan's DNA from blood samples left behind during his cases and created it in a nanotech solution that was able to rewrite a male human's reproductive material into an exact copy of Logan's. They then looked for a suitable couple and found the Maries as the target subject. Owen thought he was getting a flu shot at a hospital, when in reality he was secretly given the injection with the nanotech solution so that his offspring would actually be that of Logan's in the biological sense. A year later, Priscilla gave birth to Rogue, who possessed half her mother's genetic material and half of Logan's.
Rogue lived in a hippie-commune with her parents in the Mississippi. Living in mostly a black neighborhood, she enjoyed her time hanging out with her neighbors. One of them was named Cody, a black kid whom Rogue grew to like the most. One night while hanging out at a creek, the two shared a kiss right before Rogue's powers manifested, resulting in putting Cody in a temporary coma. After being so shocked, Rogue decides to leave her family, armed only with a gun.
One night Rogue was being chased by a few thugs, eventually being trapped in an alley until she was saved by Spider-Man, who was amazed at seeing her for the first time. They would later run into each other on a few occasions, and even got to know each other to the point where Spider-Man revealed his secret identity to her, thinking she could trust her with his secret. Rogue eventually introduced him to the X-Men, especially her best friends Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, and Iceman. When she and Spider-Man are caught in a battle against anti-mutant terrorists, she absorbed Spider-Man's powers for equal fire power and took out the mutant haters with ease. She later realized she also absorbed his memories and had a dream one night of how Peter let a burglar escape and killed his uncle, motivating him into using his powers for good. This made Rogue finally understand why Peter does what he does as Spider-Man.
Rogue is a kind-hearted, strong-willed, and righteous woman with a rebellious nature, as her name primarily implies. As a child she was very detached and always left to fend for herself, which developed maturely to the point where she can protect herself. Growing up in a controlled and ridged environment, she was often left with no explanation as to why she had to live her life in a certain way. As a result, she responded by trying to find out for herself and this is what began the pattern of behavior that would become ingrained in her personality. Her rebelliousness is also caused by abandonment issues. Growing up, Rogue never knew who her real parents were. This was something even Mystique and Destiny couldn't tell her, so her identity is detached as a result. This adds to her rebellious tendencies, but also adds a certain level of vulnerability. This vulnerability can keep her humility in check because this is one thing she understands she has no control over. This later plays a part in how she deals with her powers, which are defined by having her identity come in conflict with that of another. She retains an element of moral strength. Unlike her mother, who keeps making excuses, she develops an aversion to the morally gray areas that seem to justify anything. In some ways it's a response to her mother's shortcomings. There's also the influence of having a brother she talks to regularly who understand her and relates to her in a way her mother doesn't understand. This ability to relate is what helps her as a member of the X-men and embrace their ways. Because of her inability to control her powers, she is a loner and has a very difficult time communicating with others without her powers harming them through skin contact. She easily relates this to Spider-Man, who suffers from being alone because of being a social outcast, a shared trait that leads from relation to one another to a strong affection between them. She also has a strong connection and love for nature. Having to live in a natural environment as a kid, she easily lets go of being secluded all the time and never worries about harming anyone when alone, stripping herself of all the clothes that cover her entire body and embracing herself as a naturally beautiful woman with a pure heart and a strong sense of morality.
Powers and Abilities
Rogue is a mutant:
Power Absorption: Can absorb the powers, energies, memories, knowledge, talents, personality and physical abilities (whether superhuman or not) of another human being (or members of some sentient alien races) through physical contact of her skin with the skin of the other person. She is not limited to absorbing superhuman abilities: for example, she has absorbed the strength, agility, and sharp reflexes of an enhanced human. She can also absorb psionic abilities. In absorbing another persons memories Rogue also gains the emotional responses connected to them. For the transfer of abilities to be accomplished, Rogue’s skin must contact the skin of her victim. Rogue can only absorb abilities and memories from living organic beings. She can possess the powers of several superhuman persons at once. No upper limit has yet been determined for the number of superhuman beings whose power she can maintain simultaneously, or for the amount of power that she can absorb. Rogue can even absorb gross physical characteristics from a victim. Her physical appearance does not change when she absorbs abilities and memories from a normal looking human being. The victim's abilities and memories are absorbed for a time sixty times longer than the period of time Rogue was in physical contact with that person. Those touched are rendered unconscious by contact with her.
