Rogue is a great idea for a mutant. Her ability to absorb other characters' powers means she can go up against all types of opponents and the range of action that can be depicted is limitless. I think the permanent strength and flight that she acquired make her a bit too powerful though, and I feel she is more compelling with only the temporary absorption abilities. I'd like to see a more faithful version of Rogue in a future X-Men film. While I enjoyed Anna Paquin's performance in the earlier X-films, it never felt like the comic book version to me. Her character was sort of a hybrid between Rogue and Kitty Pryde - not only did we lose a lot of interesting back story Rogue had in the comics, she also seemed redundant when the actual Kitty was introduced.
