Core Set

X-Men: Covert / Strength

Anna Marie, the girl who would become Rogue, ran away from home at an early age after bristling under the controlling nature of her aunt Carrie. Mystique encountered Anna Marie after she had embraced her “Rogue” nickname, and essentially adopted her alongside Destiny, Mystique’s pre-cognitive mutant lover. Before long, Rogue’s mutant powers manifested for the first time when she kissed a boy named Cody and left him comatose. Eventually, Rogue realized she could never have a normal life and accepted her role in Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Rogue fought with Ms. Marvel during one of her early Brotherhood missions, and without intending to, she permanently absorbed her foe’s memories and powers.
