Gotta love Rogue's 90s outfit, her best costume by far in my opinion, wish they'd bring it back lol. I also miss her flight, super strength, & invulnerability, as a kid I considered her the Wonder Woman of the Marvel Universe in that regard. I also liked how her extra powers allowed her to fight and win without using her natural power draining mutant abilities, so on those rare occasions when she was in a situation where she literally had to take the gloves off, it was that much more epic!...Also, she could totally kick wolverine's ass >;3
Except that she stole those powers from Ms Marvel...effectively killing Carol for a few years. Though it made Rogue a powerful character is breaks the concept of being a mutant. The powers you have are a burden as well as a boon.
Not really in some regards ... being able to have all that power and still not being able to touch or be touched by anyone except with the protection of some sort of cloth or covering seems to still stay within the concept of being a mutant. Now, you do have a good point about gaining the powers of another, but it does allow the character to grow a bit in development.
