Is Rogue's Iconic Green and Gold look ever coming back???

#1 Posted by poisonfleur (3026 posts) - - Show Bio

I hate to be a whiny fanboy, but when is Marvel bringing back the Loud Iconic Rogue of the 90s.

I miss the big hair, the tight Bright Yellow and Green, the brown leather jacket and the automatic playful bad girl visual.

Not trying to hate but her new costume is so... pilot looking. Do you think her Iconic look is due back anytime soon?

This is as bad as putting Elektra in a body suit with a sombrero. It's just not the same.

No, but she does seem to be getting her attitude back if Uncanny Avengers keeps going the way it is, or she could just be moody to early to tell.

I'd welcome the personality coming back but we've moved passed the 90's fashion wise and that's a good thing. Also her new look has more of a bad girl vibe then her old one ever did.

YES!^ Well said. She was such a Marvel Icon!!

@Avenging-X-Bolt: Meh-- Agree to disagree.

@Blood1991: Since she is apart of an Avengers title, let hope Marvel shows her off as best as they can. IMO, i think her current costume is so, so throwback looking..

Nothing about Rogue is especially iconic...

I LOVE the 90s Rogue look. It's the first time I've ever heard of her. But I wanna see a different look for Rogue.

I could swing this... Only if it was Green and Yellow and has some spunk.

It's 2012. Someone shouldn't be wearing the same costume for over 10 years unless we're talking about someone truly iconic like Superman,Batman,Captain America,etc. As long as she still has the brown hair with the white streak,and she's on the X-Men, people will still be able to pick her out of the crowd. Her original costume was basically and X-Men uniform accept for instead of blue and gold it was green, probably to offset the amount of identical color schemes. Her current costume is fine..what she needs to get back is MS.MARVEL's powers because they are part of why I liked her.

I have a fondness for that early 90's look, partly because of the animated series, but it's horribly dated for this decade. It would just look ridiculous. However, I wouldn't mind seeing her don an updated version of that look - an outfit that would pay homage to that classic costume, but still be contemporary.

I do dislike her most recent look, though. It's boring, and it really doesn't reflect who she is as a character right now. I much preferred the one she had before it.

I think it can work

Ignoring the anime style I really love this look.

I liked the old green and gold look she had but i'd prefer to have the outfit she wore when she had her own team

But instead of long sleeves maybe short sleeves since that seems to be her thing now with her powers under control. Hell just to satisfy you, they could make the colors similar to the Green and Gold look

Tell that to the fans of the 90's animated cartoon.

Dress her up in a pink tutu and a pirate hat, I don't care, but just write her well.

I'm with you. I mean, I wouldn't care if the color scheme made a comeback, but I dig the look she has now.

@Blood1991: i like that look or even if they swap the colors make the yellow parts green and the green parts yellow.

Still doesn't change the fact that she sucks. 90's animation Rogue, and Claremont Rogue, is the only Rogue not to suck.

its her best look but I don't know if I'd call it iconic

I love Rogue, and her green and yellow body suit is ingrained on my brain in a great way. The boots and straps really seal the deal for me.

Just, please, don't bring back her " Flashdance" look.

"She's a maniac..maniac..on the floor. and she's dancing like she never danced before."

or, if you prefer

"Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical. Let's get into physical.."

The 80's have much to answer for.

I think we are throwing around the term 'Iconic' a too much. It may be a popular outfit for fans of the show but iconic is a stretch. Iconic should be reserved for costumes that most people recognize like Supes Spider-Man Batman and Cap among others. I watched and enjoyed the 90s TV show but her outfit doesn't really stick out and make you think of that character like you do when looking at the shield or cowl or S logo etc.

Honestly I've grown accustomed to the hooded look.

#24 Posted by PassionFlower (960 posts) - - Show Bio

...but I do like my Rogue to be a little trailer park-ish.

I like the outfit Rogue wore in the bulk of her X-men Legacy run. I don't know why they put her back in her original outfit for Uncanny Avengers. It seems like a step back to me. I love the way Rogue has developed over the years and hope she continues to do so.

@TheJokerha: Man you're just crazy. Give me 80's Outback X-Men Rogue any day over 90's Rogue.
