Marvel Legends - ROGUE (LEGACY)!

Marvel Legends: X-Men - Rogue and Pyro 2-Pack - Hasbro 2020

Here's my unpopular opinion for the day: I was never a fan of the iconic yellow and green 90's Rogue outfit. The aesthetic of a leather jacket over spandex was always a little silly to me. And the costume underneath looks boring without it. That's why I was so happy when her subsequent costumes all tended to hearken back to her original green and white. I'll admit that I had no real connection to the specific costume of this figure, but Rogue in a green and white is always appealing to me. After some research, I learned that this outfit is from the pages of X-Men Legacy from 2010 through 2012. It's a great looking outfit, and a decent improvement over the unreleased 2013 figure from the Wolverine line. My only wish is for this to have been one of her costumes with a hood. I may sneer and leather jackets, but I get giddy over a woman in a hood. The Marvel Legends 2-Pack offerings lately have given us some wonderful figures and I'm very excited to see what's next. Let's check out Rogue below!

Rogue comes with two heads and a two sets of hands. The angry face looks good from the front, but I'm not a huge fan from any other angle. 
The closed-mouth head is gorgeous from any perspective though.

Here are some rare packaged photos of the unreleased Rogue figure from 2013. It would have been a great figure, but this newer one is definitely an improvement.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Rogue with her packmate, Pyro.

And here she is with her 2016 version.
