who wins ?
No way Rogue could win, even taking into account her absorption powers. Superman has tangled with Parasite too many times to let her have that advantage over him. Her strength levels are next nothing now aren't they? Even if she still had Ms. Marvel level power, it still wouldn't be close.
Prurience Man says:
"Gambler says:Thats right, I was thinking he would punch her in the face, but he wouldnt have to."If he did that, wouldnt she absorb his energy?"Does she absorb enery/power through her clothes now? If not, then he could always punch her in about 90% of her bodily surface area. Game over. Just for the record, I'm really like Rogue. I've always been a fan. And, despite my avatar/character bio, I'm not a Superman fan-boy."

I can see Rogue winning two ways, but these aren't very likely at all.
1) The Kryptonite card (almost required for any Superman vs. battle). Can she absorb energy from nonliving things? If she can't, there's two possibilities. Absorb the energy from someone that can absorb energy from nonliving things or have someone make living kryptonite and she could then absorb its energy.
2)She could line a lot of people up from least to most powerful, and deck them down the line, working her way up to Superman. (I'd tell her use the battle rankings here, except she'd have to fight Galactus before Spiderman). It'd have to fast, because earlier fight powers would dissipate. This would be a long line, so she'd better drink a couple of liters of Jolt, or somehow absorb Flash.
Superman. Well Rogue isnt super strong anymore but she was a 40 tonner right? so she couldnt catch superman that way unless she got a lucky hit by surprise. Absorbtion well 1. Superman is an alien we dont know how her power would do against that. 2 it is possible for people to resist if they have enough power i.e Magneto has been shown to kiss her and have no ill effect he is just that powerfull...so maybe Supes could be too [dam i shouldnt have said Supes now im hungry for soup] 3. not sure about Supes rate of solar absorbtion but if it is fast and its sunny then he may actually be bale to keep up with her rate of drainage. Her main real advantage is being a girl and Superman isnt likely to smoosh her he would find some gentlemanly way to put her down.....then try and get some country tang GIGGITY-GOO.
Im still thinking Superman has the biggest chance BUT Rogue does seem to be able to absorb powers veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery fast with very little contact nowadays...she punched Northstar in X-men 190 and got his powers [a punch isnt really long in terms of contact]. If Supes doesnt know about her absorbtion or gets caught by surprise [i know he is super fast but if she is trying to fry him and it obviously does nothing Superman will go into arrogance mode and feel he has no need to evade her...thus giving her an element of surprise].so barring anything like Superman being too overpowered [im not sure but didnt she absorb Thors powers and not just in a What if? If it is the case then i reckon she could do Supes] or his alien physiology she could absorb his abilities...and she has enough experience with laser vision, super strength, super speed, flight etc to be able to use his abilities convincingly.
