Rogue's parents died in the early days of the Human-Mutant War. Rogue was placed in a human orphanage until it was discovered she was actually a mutant.

Upon discovering her mutant abilities, the government sent two S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents, Mystique and Madame Web, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s resident telepath, to the orphanage. They were able to convince the girl to come with them to S.H.I.E.L.D. and to train as an agent. With her unique mutant abilities, it was obvious to S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Sebastian Shaw that Rogue would be a perfect agent. During her training, Rogue was adopted by Mystique and the two have a very strong bond.

Rogue has become a superb agent, joining her adopted mother and brother, Nightcrawler, as members of Wolverine's elite squad of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents, The Red Guard.[1]



Involuntary Power Absorption: Can absorb the memories, knowledge, talents, personality, physical abilities (whether superhuman or not), and powers of another human being (or members of some sentient alien races) through physical contact of her skin with the skin of the other person.

Genis-Vell Powers: Rogue later permanently absorbed the cosmic powers of Genis-Vell. Due to this, half of Rogue's body became a window to a dark landscape riddled with white pinpricks of light. She also gained Genis-Vell's Steller Energy Absorption and Cosmic Awareness powers. These powers allowed her to defend herself from Quicksilver without even lifting a finger.
