Batgirl and Rogue



I watched the trailer for the extended cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and there is a quick moment with Jena Malone, who was cut from the film.  Some had speculated she was playing Barbara Gordon, but from her appearance, I'm not so sure about that.  If there's no place for Barbara Gording in the films, perhaps Batgirl could show up on TV's Supergirl.  That's a World's Finest team that might actually crack a smile once in a while!

I really haven't looked at any comic books, current issues I should say, since the movies have been rolling along, so that's a good fifteen years. Where exactly is Rogue today?

And if she had her original powers and absorbed Batgirl's abilities, what exactly would that give her that she didn't already have, I wonder?

She a take on Cat Grant apparently, going by various suggestions. Disappointing but I'd rather she appear in a Batman Family movie first where she can help battle Hush or the Court of Owls or something.

Richard: Rogue's been a hero for a long while now, currently she's part of the Uncanny Avengers series, suffering from a disease like most mutants do due to the Inhumans Terrigan Mist spreading over the planet back in Infinity. She had a nice run of stories in X-Men Legacy for a time where she was the focus.

Loving the covers! This has nothing to do with the actual cover, but...why, oh WHY do people insist on spelling her name "Rouge"? I find it hard to believe it can be blamed on spellcheck. :)

I've never misspelled her name. Always knew it was Rogue and not Rouge. Could this be the younger Moulin Rouge crowd who watched Nicole Kidman in that movie? Or those who frequent New Orleans for some spring break or something?

Another mutant disease? What was the last one that Wolverine had to be the cure due to his 'healing factor' (might as well be Superman)?
According to the '90s cartoon anyway. Can't believe they turned around and brought in another one, just to keep mutants in relation to AIDS sufferers, or is it now West Nile virus, soon to be Zika?

Richard: Well as I said this one's due to the Mutant gene reacting badly to the Inhuman Terrigan mist, to the extent that it's made mutants sterile and apparently more hated than ever. A lot of people think it's a cynical way of Marvel showing the Inhumans as the new mutants since they don't own the rights outside the comics, but I doubt that's fully the case. But the X-Men have gone through a lot in the past decade between the House of M, the rise of Utopia in San Francisco, the Schism between Wolverine and Cyclops, the death of Charles Xavier by by the Phoenix enpowered Cyclops in Avengers vs X-Men and soforth.

@Keith B: I empathize with you. Believe me! I keep telling other so-called "fans" that Rogue is the X-woman who absorbs super-abilities by touch. And Rouge is the super-villainous cyborg who can stretch like Reed Richards and who has the obsessive hots for the Doom Patrol's Chief!

But, do they listen? No. They continue to incessantly misspell it, as if they're _proud_ to be taken for dyslexic (or whatever). Makes me think Ross should educate them, once and for all, by doing a cover featuring the two of them.

"STF Presents: ROUGE VS. ROGUE In: 'A Long Overdue Lesson!' "

As for Barbara Gordon appearing on SUPERGIRL? Maybe she's the one in that spaceship that crashed in the CBS series finale! As for me, personally? I would rather Serinda Swan reappear, as Zatanna, first. Maybe during the November 2016 sweeps weeks.

Great cover, but I think Rogue might be better suited with a partner that do have superpower, maybe like Supergirl.(Just my 2 cents :D)
Because I recently read Dark Knight Strikes Again, that cover makes me think of a Catgirl-Deadpool team up.:D

I'd rather see Cassandra Cain on the Supergirl TV show instead-she needs somebody that she can't instantly be buddy-buddy with to create some synergy out of differences, the same way Batman and Superman are.

I would love to see Rogue vs. The Rogues.
