Marvel Select - ROGUE!

Marvel Select - X-Men: Rogue (90s Jim Lee Version) - Diamond Select Toys 2019

I love a good villain-turned-hero. One of my first exposures to Rogue was her appearances in ROM: Spaceknight when she was my favorite member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. I also had a few random issues of Dazzler when she was being all villainous. All my comics in the mid-to-late eighties were from 25¢ boxes so I was living 3-5 years in the past. I didn't even realize she joined the X-Men until way late in the game. Then the double-whammy of the X-Men the Animated Series and the Lee/Claremont run in the comics launched her into superstardom. To this day I still run into people who aren't even into the genre, but if comics or X-Men come up, they inevitably start gushing over Rogue (and Storm). The Marvel Select line is really impressive lately. This Rogue figure is the second of four females due out this year (Psylocke and Captain Marvel are still coming). And the quality is getting better and better, so DST reveals at SDCC are something I'm really looking forward to. Let's check out Rogue below!

Rogue comes with three sets of hands: closed-fist, open-palmed, and a glove-removing set.
She also comes with a Danger Room diorama (that I forgot to photograph). It's very similar to the pieces that came with Storm, but it only has two wall-pieces and a claw hand instead of a buzzsaw.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her 2016 Marvel Legends figure.

And with two recent Marvel Select figures: Lady Deadpool and Storm.
