Rogue has worn a number of costumes and been on both sides of the fence during her long run as a comic book character, being consistently one of the most popular female characters from the X-Men canon.

Identified by her trademark white streak in her dark hair, Rogue packs a powerful punch, possessing superhuman strength and durability, as well as the power of flight. Of course these were all gained through her primary mutant ability, the power to absorb both the power and memory of others through contact with her skin, often resulting in a comatose state of those that she touches.

With a complex and painful background, Rogue is certainly a tragic character, but her powerful resolve and strength of character always ensures that she is a proper force to be reckoned with!

Carol Danvers, a.k.a Ms. Marvel a.k.a Warbird a.k.a Binary has certainly been put through the wringer over the years in terms of continuity and back story, but as one of Marvel’s premier female superheroes, Ms. Marvel has served as a team member on The Avengers, X-Men, Starjammers and S.H.I.E.L.D.

She’s the reason Rogue has her more useful abilities and currently sports the powers of flight (at the speed of sound), strength, stamina, a useful “seventh sense” and of course the ability to blow things up.

In other words, a dangerous woman to be around.

Over the years various writers have certainly put her character through the wringer, but at the start of it all, creator Chris Claremont’s precognitive ninja played supporting character to her fraternal twin brother, Captain Britain, even substituting every now and then for him. Later on she became the mutant superheroine Psylocke, who developed telepathic abilities and then later acquired Jean’s Grey’s telekinesis.

Known for her psychic blades, Psylocke is nevertheless a warrior who can really get into your head!

In her most recent outing, following the aftermath of Second Coming, Psylocke (along with Deadpool, Fantomex, and Archangel) is selected by Wolverine to be a member of the new X-Force, the sole condition being that no one must learn of the team’s existence. Psylocke has been seen using her telepathy to help Warren control the “Archangel” persona in his mind, which has led to the two rekindling their previous relationship. The team’s first mission is to locate and kill Apocalypse, who has been reborn. After the events of SCHISM, while Psylocke has decided to stay on Utopia with Cyclops’ team, she also secretly stays on X-Force to help whenever Wolverine requests. Cyclops also places Psylocke in charge of a new X-Men Security team, asking her to be his spy and spy-hunter.

During the Dark Angel Saga, the Jean Grey of the Age of Apocalypse universe opened up Psylocke’s mind, allowing her to tap into a previously untapped power. Writer Rick Remender confirms that Psylocke is now an Omega Level telepath. She also willingly gives up her capability to feel sorrow and regret as part of a bargain to save Fantomex from death at the hands of Skinlessman.

Uncanny X-Men Cosplay: Emma Frost – The White Queen (Constantine in Tokyo) Cosplay 08 OCT 2013

Emma Frost, once the White Queen and part of the infamous Hellfire Club, has since moved on from being one of the X-Men’s most dangerous foes to being one of their most central members. Constantine, perhaps better known as Constantine in Tokyo, has taken it upon herself to don the necessary skimpy white attire and bring to life this powerful mutant telepath!

Created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne back in 1980 and first appearing in Uncanny X-Men #129, Emma Frost started out as a dangerous mutant telepath associated with Sebastian Shaw’s Hellfire Club under the moniker the White Queen. Over the years however this powerful telepath has gradually switched alliances, becoming somewhat of a hero in the process. Sophisticated, elegant and with quite a dry wit, Emma Frost has since become one of the most popular female characters in the entire Marvel stable.

Her abilities include of course her powerful telepathy which allows her such feats as broadcasting and receiving thoughts, mind-control, altering perceptions and memories, psychic shielding, astral projection, mind switching, mental sedation and even the ability to inflict mental pain via touch. She can also activate or boost other mutants’ abilities as well. Outside of her psionic abilities, Emma also has the ability to transform into her diamond form, which comes at the price of her psychic abilities but delivers to her an indestructible body and increased strength.

Dead or Alive 5 (DOA) Cosplay: Kasumi (Constantine in Tokyo) Cosplay 02 JUL 2013

Kasumi, the main character of the Dead or Alive (DOA) fighting game franchise since 1996 bursts into our cosplay feature this week, brought to life by Constantine, perhaps better known as Constantine in Tokyo.

One of gaming’s foremost sex symbols, Kasumi also happens to be the personal favourite of Team Ninja’s founder and the series creator, Tomonobu Itagaki.

According to the game canon, Kasumi, also known as the Kunoichi of Destiny, is a teenage female shinobi (ninja) skilled in the Mugen style of ninjutsu. Selected as the18th Master of the Mugen Tenshin ninja clan, Kasumi deserted her duties and entered the Dead or Alive tournament in order to defeat Raidou, the man who crippled her brother, in a revenge attack.

Although compassionate and not particularly at ease with violence and conflict most of the time, this highly skilled ninja is however not someone you wish to cross swords with, as she is quite simply, as deadly as she is beautiful!

In terms of gameplay, although altering slightly through the series’ various iterations, Kasumi is primarily a very balanced fighter with good speed, execution and fairly simplistic input commands, and is thus considered a mid-to-top tier character by most. Her range is however fairly lacking and her single strikes not particularly powerful, meaning she is best used as a pressure fighter, in other words constantly attacking without giving her opponent an opportunity to launch an attack.
