Time travel[ edit ] Many of the X-Men's stories delve into time travel either in the sense of the team traveling through time on a mission, villains traveling through time to alter history, or certain characters traveling from the past or future in order to join the present team.

Returning to Gambit, Rogue, with the help of Jean Greyforced him from near death in the astral plane. She also learned that she had inherited a mansion in New Orleans from Destiny, as well as a sizable fortune, and the X-Treme X-Men team retired there to recuperate.
Rogue soon left the team with Gambit, since they both emerged powerless from their ordeals and wanted to explore their relationship further. She worked as a motorcycle mechanic, while Gambit was often "on the road" implying he was thieving or on missions with Storm.
She subsequently received a visit from Bishop and Sage and, after a series of events involving an investigation into the murder of a human girl's family, Rogue and Gambit signed up with Bishop and Sage to help Storm's X-Treme X-Men stop Sage's enemy and former boss Elias Bogan.
After the battle, Rogue asked Sage to restore Gambit's abilities, which she did.

Rogue subsequently went back to her Aunt Carrie and made amends with her. During this ordeal, as the result of Golgotha influence, Rogue and Gambit got into a fight about the reality of their relationship with Rogue's uncontrollable powers.
Gambit claimed they would have parted much sooner if they were always able to touch, that Rogue would have been "just another one-night stand". He and Rogue then started passionately kissing each other until her power began to affect him and Emma Frost telepathically interrupted.
In this storyline, Rogue accidentally and permanently absorbed Sunfire's fire abilities who has lost his legs to Lady Deathstrike and did not want to live. Rogue then discovered that Gambit was being seduced by the student called Foxx. It is later revealed, however, that Mystiquedispleased with Rogue's choice of lovers, infiltrated the Xavier Institute by shapeshifting into Foxx and joined Gambit's squad in an attempt to ruin his relationship with Rogue.
After Gambit resisted her charms, Mystique reverted to her true form and offered Gambit something more difficult to refuse: Whether or not they actually engaged in a sexual relationship is uncertain although Gambit insists that nothing happened. Rogue eventually discovered her foster mother's presence in the school and her attempts to seduce Gambit, becoming furious with both parties. Because Gambit failed to tell Rogue of Mystique's presence in the Institute, their relationship developed the exact rift Mystique was hoping for and allowed her to set up her daughter with her accomplice, Pulse.
After being discovered, Mystique asked the X-Men for permission to stay at the mansion. The X-Men voted and Mystique was allowed to be a probationary member of the X-Men, a decision neither Rogue nor Gambit were happy with. Gambit, seeking redemption from Rogue and his fellow X-Men, volunteered to be transformed into his horsemanDeath.

Rogue's X-Men[ edit ] As Professor Xavier went into space with Havok and several other X-Men to go after the villain VulcanCyclops gave Rogue the authority to form her own team, complimenting her inspired improvisation in battle situations.

Afterward, Rogue declared that her team would leave the X-Mansion. Rogue was hospitalized after a battle with Pandemic. Cabledesiring Rogue's help in defeating the Hecatomb, forced Rogue awake. Pandemic infected Rogue with a virus, Strain 88, altering her powers by amplifying them into an instantaneous death-touch. In defeating Hecatomb, Rogue absorbed psyches of eight billion entities that had been stored inside it.
As Cyclops and Emma Frost arrived to help Rogue cope with the immensity of the voices in her mind, Marauders arrived, seeking the Destiny diaries.
As part of the attack, it was revealed that Mystique was working with the Marauders and for Mister Sinister. Mystique shot Rogue and took her back to Mr.
Sinister's base, who only kept Rogue alive because she held all the information of Destiny's Diaries within her mind. Sinister again, was protective of Rogue and accused Mystique of being too careless in how she captured her. Gambit was shown standing over Rogue trying to get her to wake up after she had fallen into a trance overcome by the minds she absorbedand expressed his apologies for what he had done before rejoining Sinister. Rogue had flashes of memories, both of she and Gambit during the time that they had known each other, and of the millions of minds she absorbed, while in her coma-like state before she briefly woke up and recognized Gambit.
She told him she had a nightmare, before spouting incoherent words and mysterious coordinates. However the baby eventually took precedence and the X-Men did not recover or even see Rogue. While standing by Rogue's bedside, Mystique was visited by Mister Sinister who told her that there will be no cure for Rogue and she will eventually die.
Without warning, Mystique ambushed Sinister and shoved his face onto Rogue's. The instant contact seemingly killed Sinister. The baby was not affected by Rogue's power, and Rogue awakens shortly after. Realizing what Mystique had done at the risk of killing the baby, Rogue said she's tired of people's lives being destroyed by Mystique and grabbed Mystique's face barehanded, fully absorbing her powers and consciousness and incapacitating her.
However, she immediately regrets her action when she realizes that the baby had deleted all the consciousnesses she had previously absorbed, along with Strain 88, so that now Mystique was the only one in her head.
She said she needed to be alone and told Gambit not to follow her. Once there, she has a conversation with Mystique a part of Rogue's psychetelling her that no one else can help her with her powers and that it was down to her to figure out how to control them. One day, a woman appears in town claiming to be an anthropologist from Melbourne University. Rogue made it clear she could stay as long as she wants, but to keep out of her way.
The anthropologist approached Rogue with questions about some of the items she found in the ghost town. Rogue said she does not know anything about these and to leave her alone.
The anthropologist follows Rogue and eventually confesses that she has a different identity. The anthropologist was then targeted by a low flying Shi'ar spaceship and revealed that she was actually Danger in disguise. She informs Rogue she planned to get revenge on Professor Xavier by using her as a conduit. She was finally cornered by the Marauders, and refused to let Mystique's psyche take control of Rogue's body and save her as the fake Marauder Scalphunter shot at her.
Mystique then forcibly took over Rogue's body to save her and fought off the Marauders, then returned control of Rogue's body to her.
