Can Rogue absorb Juggernaut's powers?

#1 Posted by Aeschma Deava (301 posts) - - Show Bio

Can Rogue only absorb another mutant's powers? I'm just wondering if Rogue is able to absorb Juggernaut's powers or not, since he gets his power from an external source and isn't a mutant. Will her powers have any effect on Juggernaut at all?

I've been wondering the same thing actually. I know its not canon but in X-Men Evolution and Wolverine and The-X-men she did so maybe it is possible.

She has also done it in the comics.  She can't absorb enough to hurt him, but she can make herself stronger from him.  She basically can absorb anyone.  Humans she just absorbs memories, mutants and mutates their powers, and even alien abilities though these can sometimes go haywire.  If she tries to absorb someone significantly stronger than herself she can overload herself, and sometimes can't absorb enough to weaken them.  Juggernaut, Magneto, Hulk and others have been able to withstand her fully unleased draining of their powers and were none the worse for the wear.  Though even Magneto was slightly weakened, and Juggernaut complained of a headache.

@yodagod: Though recently didn't she absorb and use Ares' powers? Now that she can control her powers with touch, Maybe there are some new ground rules for her now.

Yep!  It was the same principle as with the Juggernaut's strength.  It makes her just as strong, but doesn't really weaken him enough to stop him.  And since she's lost all of Ms Marvel's powers, it was nice to see her punching hard with the invincibility again :)

Yes, because she defeated Moonstone who's power comes from a moonstone.

How many people can Rogue absorb and simultaneously wield their power? Can she just absorb the power of Thor, Hulk, Sentry, one after the other and gain all 3? And how long does that last?

@alcoholbob: She can absorb multiple people at once. In her first appearance for example, she absorbed most of the Avengers, including Captain America, Thor, Wonder Man, and Spider-Woman. How long they last is usually related to how much she absorbs. A brief touch will only last a short time, but a prolonged touch can last for a considerable amount of time or even become permanent.

Well Juggernaut's powers derive from the gem rather than from himself. If she absorbs the Juggernaut, wouldn't that make her another of Cyttorak's exemplars?

She's only be able to absorb a smaller portion of his strength; not the source of his power.

She can absorb some of his power but not all of it, because she'd need Cyttorak to allow her to take all of his power

Juggernaut is Powered By Ancient demonic magic from  Cyttorak 
Can Rogue Absorb Power Of  Cyttorak ? No

Its more of a how much can she absorb question/answer than a yes or no. Until we actually see her try and take it all in a bunch of various contexts, its hard to say for sure. So she can, (and she has) but not like she can, say most other characters.

I say yes. Hasn't she absorbed regular humans or other heros powers, memories, etc. before?
