One of the most famous accents in comics is of course the southern accent of Rogue. Rogue is already a pretty cool character, but the accent adds something more. And while I do like the accent it leads me to wonder, if they are going to show her accent why don’t they show others? Here accent is also mostly only represented by changing “I” to “Ah” though there are a lot more subtleties of the southern accent which that skips over. There are a few accents in comics which do get shown, Captain Boomerang for instance, but that is as often to add a comedic element to the character, not to add depth like it does with Rogue. The Cheetah's assistant Chuma is also often shown speaking in accented English. Certainly there are people from all over the world represented in comics but their English accents are mostly neglected. The most common among these would be British or Canadian heroes, but when they are portrayed their accents are not really noticeable. They are some subtle differences between pronunciation between Americans and Canadians though are accents are almost identical. Would it look right to have talking with a subtle Canadian accent, at least as perceived by Americans?
Probably not. I do agree that the portrayal of Rogue’s accent in comics makes her more compelling (and sassy) and adds a unique aspect to her character. Still a part of me wonders whenever I read her words why all characters don’t get the same treatment.
