Ok not that Im complaining, not at all really BUT!

in the first two issues of X men by the great Brian Wood, it seemed that rogue was converted back to her like 1990's power set, where she had permanently stolen Ms Marvels powers. Flying, Strength, durability or what not. She hasn't really had to mimic anyone, and she has had those powers the entire time without any real explanation. Now i really don't mind thats when i liked rogue the best lol, but im curious if i missed something because i thought those were gone and she had to touch some one to get powers (IE Uncanny Avengers, X men Legacy blah blah) So did i miss something or is wood just not following continuity and not getting any grief about it lol (cause if it was Bendis all hell would of broken lose already :D ) s

I did wonder about this but having said that, the 90's rogue was my favourite so I think I have just let it slide, Oh and this wouldn't have caused issues if Bendis had done it because I think most people like this rogue, People would hate it if Bendis had influence because he wouldn't know how to write rogue.

I picked up on that too! Maybe she touched one of the students (that sounds wrong) before she left for the train, and again before her fight with Arkea/Omega Sentinel? It's possible... or maybe it's insinuated.

Yeah, you missed her specifically stating that she borrowed Northstar's powers for both flight and super strength. And yes, he DOES, as you didn't know, possess super strength. Having received an upgrade during Carey's Legacy.

Incase it gets "missed" again, she says it right before she drops Kitty off, if the issue isn't at hands, read some CBR threads. Very informative. Indeed, Wood is great. Best thing to happen to the X-Men in years.
