How would Jamie's powers work for a character that can absorb or mimic the powers of others? I assume that the original Rogue could create dupes of herself. Each of those dupes should be able to absorb new powers from others, right? Would the original Rogue acquire those powers when she reabsorbs her dupe? What would happen if she loses Madrox's powers with outstanding dupes? Would they disappear spontaneously regardless of proximity. Would they stick around because Rogue would be unable to reabsorb them? I wonder how Mimic's powers would work, though. Imagine he's locked in Madrox, Cyclops, Angel, Beast, and Iceman (for example). Mimic makes a dupe. The dupe mimics Colossus, Shadowcat, Emma Frost, Nightcrawler, and Sunfire. Can the dupe be reabsorbed without having Madrox's power? What if the original also got rid of the powers? It seems to me that if neither the original nor the dupe at the powers, they wouldn't be able to reabsorb at all.
Rogue or Mimic using Madrox's powers?
Well, (if I remember correctly) when a Dupe becomes to unlike himself then the dupe can not be re-absorbed into him, simply because they are too different. So I don't see why it wouldn't be any different in the cases of Rogue or Mimic.
For as long as they have the powers Rogue should as well. That being said all this depends on the writer, and less complicated powers have been ignored or used inconsistently anyway. (Sunfire, Magma, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Betsy etc
"O_o never thought about it like that....My view on this is that story plot is needed to keep Rogue and Madrox and Sage from each other and ignorant to... since Rogue has always had so powerful its stupid potential (stupid because it renders teammates unnecessary) and Madrox could potentially dupe things, not just himself, and Sage unlocks powers... and if an army of power absorbing Rogues..."
Rogue can make dupes and they'll also have powers
After original Rogue looses her powers dupes will still stay if she absorbs them before loosing powers then she gets their powers too
Now about Mimic
Mimic gets to use only 50% of that power so it's hard to say what will dupes look like but if it'll work then yes dupes can absorb others powers too and still stay if absorbed then they'll override his brain giving him huge headache or even ending up killing him
And it doesn't matter if original gets depowered dupes will still stay
