Anna Marie is the daughter of Owen&Priscilla, who married early&lived in a back-to-nature hippie commune in Caldecott County. Marie was a rebellious child&her equally poor relationship with her dad prompted her to run away from home, which gave life to the nickname Rogue. The 5’8”, 120 lb Gamma level mutant had the ability to absorb the powers, energies, memories, talents, and personalities of anyone through physical contact, and those touched would be rendered unconscious, though some [like Juggernaut] resisted this effect. This transfer was temporary, lasting for a period of time relative to how long contact was maintained, although it could remain permanent in certain cases. For example, she absorbed Ms. Marvel’s powers, granting her the ability to lift a ton’a weight (more specifically, around ninety, I believe). Mutants were stronger than humans because they had different genetics, which meant her power did less lethal effects for most mutants than humans. Her flirt, Cody Robbins, was in coma state for three weeks with just a slight touch. If she had touched him a bit longer, he had been already dead. With her “touch of death,” she could really voluntarily murder someone if she felt like it.
