A Rogue’s Tale

My ultimate high school fanboy fetish was Rogue. That was in the early 90’s, when the X-Men were still big with the cartoons and stuff. My favorite episode was A Rogue’s Tale, about Rogue getting all crazed up and whiny about her having absorbed Ms. Marvel’s powers before Jean Grey cured her. There was just something about the exaggerated southerner accent and absorbing powers that was sort of… ahem, wetdreamish. I got her 1995 comic mini-series that finally showed her letting go of Cody, a storyline I was strangely crazy about. Her character development peaked in the Age of the Apocalypse storyline, where she was the earth mother of sorts of all mutants and married to Magneto. Apparently Magneto can create some sort of electromagnetic field between them while having sex, so talk about multi-tasking. In total fanboyness I got her 90’s action figure which had… a belt accessory. The Cyclops action figure of course had light-up eyes and Wolvy had retractable claws, but she had… a removable brown belt. I failed to get her 2001 X-Men movie action figure because it had a… pink furry scarf. I failed to get her Toy Biz Marvel Legends action figure in 2004 basically because… she looked like a drag queen. And by this time you are probably fed-up with the damn too many… ellipses. Anna Paquin was passable in the movie, but the X3 move to have her willingly give up her powers just so she could have sex with Bobby was total crap. And so after years of youthful yearning I have finally met… Rogue! In PGH. I know, I look ten kinds of bewildered and twenty kinds of stupid in the pic, but she is just so sizzling.

Again with Rogue, Daddy Cyclops with Spraynet Hair, Cheerleader Lass, Goldskirt Girl, and Ballroom Bonanza Belle. That dude in the sutana is Ding (as in Ding, ang bato!), who is secretly… Archangel. Long story.

The whole shebang with Wolverina and Pyro/Shellane mascot

These were from a recent interdepartmental performance competition, the goal being to see how everyone will make a karir out of things. The theme is Books to Movies, so Family Medicine did something from Bridget Jones, Pediatrics did something from the Greek Mythology, and Orthopedics performed… All I Have To Give by the Backstreet Boys. Early on I pitched the idea of Sodom and Gomorrha, but it was rightfully turned down because no one was willing to participate in a pretend orgy. And also, it would have required seven sacks of salt to create Lot’s Wife. In the end we lost to a host of dancing shadows, but at least I got enough superhero pics… to submit to Wizard Magazine!!!
