    And now that moment you’ve all been waiting for – a classic instance of growth in comicdom (and since then not repeated, so far as I know, other then in fan-fictions and artworks) . . . Rogue “borrowing” She-Hulk’s powers.

    Afterthoughts and observations –

    Given the time and place that it was drawn it has almost as much going for as a rare instance of active on-screen female growth as it does in technical criticisms.  Especially, in the area of her outfit not splitting completely apart at the seams – a glaring error given the differences in overall height and size between Rogue and She-Hulk, to say nothing about the very recent past of the Savage period where Jen when transforming was reduced to wearing only her slip style of underwear.  Even if this was to be ignored, as it was by the artist who drew these panels, he should at the very least have caused Rogue to lose her boots in the process as Jen as the She-Hulk was constantly and continuously running around barefoot.

    wow,thanks for posting that



    I think at the time marvel haddend decided if Rogue gained the physical attributs of the person who's power she was absorbing. As in the time she absorbed Thors power but did'nt grow an inch. Hehe but boy was she strong! As a trivia sidebar can anyone tell me who the theif was that the X-men were chassing and what he/she was stealing.

    It was the Impossible Man who was stealing everything in sight taking things from the X-Men to Galactus and so on.  He's not one of my favorite characters but it did lead to the scene shown above.

    What I didn't like was in a later scene, Rogue was shown normal but with green skin as the next artist didn't keep her musculature that she gained.  The whole issue was a potporri of artists and inkers.



    Great find, Alex, thanks for posting.  I agree, it was satisfying, but also a tragically wasted opportunity for realistic FMG.  Very cool, though.


    That's a good one.
    Here is the more modern one – I have no idea where it's from or who scanned it…

    Tenebrae –

    I've had to remove your posted scans, Lingster specifically stated from the get-go that he does not want us to be uploading copyrighted materials directly onto his Amaz0ns server.  However, you can upload them to an independent server (Imageshack or whatever) and then link them here to the forums.

    To all –

    I had assumed that this was common knowledge based upon his postings in the Notices and Site Announcements forums.  It’s my oversight for not including such in the Posting Rules section, now amended with an update – and apologies for any confusion or inconvenience.
