TRDL 2013 Series No. 01 - Rogue [NYE]

This piece was the TRDL New Years pic for 2012-2013. Since I did Rogue for 2011-2012 (in her current costume of the time) I decided to continue and make it a tradition. This time I did the costume I remember most from my childhood: the black spandex/lycra version. I actually started reading X-Men with issue #173 (when I made the retrospectively tragic decision to put DOWN TMNT#1 and chose X-Men instead) but soon enough she took on this look, as documented in the Marvel Handbooks, in other words, the Bible. Last year I had a baby MODOK for new years, so I pulled out a Sentinel this time, for science. I really love this look for Rogue, though I see it clearly in all it’s awkward post-Flashdance glory today. I’m a sucker for the contiguous black body suit: especially for a character like Rogue, unsure of her own identity and struggling with darker instincts.
