Why does the whole Internet think Rogue's name is Marie D'Ancanto

#1 Posted by NetSpiker (294 posts) - - Show Bio

In the movies Rogue was just called Marie. But then I go on Marvel Comics Database and they say her full name is Marie D'Ancanto. Wikipedia, Marvel Movies Wiki, IMDb and just about everything else on the internet seems to agree. Is there something I missed?

Believe the comics over the movies. Though her last name is sometimes debated on, I believe. But I am no Rogue expert.

I was just on Marvel Database. Rogue's name "Anna Marie".Marie D'Ancanto is only the name of the movie version. In Earth-616, Marie & Rogue are two different characters.

@lykopis: I've found the subtitles for the movie on Database of Movie Dialogs. There is no mention of Marie's surname. And I am aware that her name is Anna Marie in the comics. I'm talking about the movie version.

Maybe her surname was revealed in one of the novelization, comic adaptations or comic prequels. I haven't read those yet.

It was the name given to her as of X2 in the films, the comic character of the same name was based off that.

@CATPANEXE: In which scene of X2? I know it wasn't mentioned in the dialogue.

Wasn't Marie D'Acanto that poor girl who's parents got killed by some retarded folks in X-Treme X-Men ?

I read somewhere that Chris Claremont created a new character with this name because he didn't want it to become Rogue's real name.

@fesak: I also read that somewhere. But I still haven't found the original source for the idea that D'Ancanto is movieverse Rogue's surname. I've read X-Men Movie Prequel - Rogue and I've used Amazon's LOOK INSIDE function to search the novelizations the first and third X-Men movies. It's not there.

I suppose it might be possible that the name first appeared in some fanfic and then somehow spread all over the Web and became accepted truth. But it doesn't seem very likely.

I believe it was her name in the script even though it wasn't mentioned in the actual movie.
