Hi my name is Rogue – that’s not my real name obviously. I ‘stole’ it from my favorite X-Men character of the same name. To me Rogue is the epitome of ‘with power, comes responsibility’ mantra. She is able to absorb any mutant’s power but at the expense of the mutant she touches.
This means she can become the most powerful mutant if she chooses but also sadly the loneliest because she cannot kiss the man she loves, Gambit, without killing him. Their love story is so poignant. Being powerful can be both a blessing or a curse. I identify deeply with this character and have made her my alter-ego.
I am a very Do-It-Yourself kind of person so as much as something interests me, I will attempt to make it happen within my own means even if it means taking lessons, surfing the web for information or borrowing books from the library.
