Didn't Rogue lose her flying brick powers when she gained full control of her absorbtion power?

She lost her flying brick powers a few years before she got full control. She absorbed some skrull and then started randomly exhibiting powers she'd copied in the past. And then she lost all the powers she'd absorbed in the past including Ms. Marvel's.

And then she permanently absorbed a dying Sunfire. And then she lost those powers and all the memories and psyches she'd absorbed in the past when she touched Hope that first time. Then after a bit of psychic spring cleaning from Xavier she got full control.

you don't read X-Men because you don't read X-Men and therefore don't know stuff that have been part of X-Men status quo for several years now?
It's a bit tautological.

No, it's because of all the complicated storyline changes that make my head hurt. It's like a bad soap opera.

It just seems like X-Men is like the pinnacle of complications, you know? I'm all for shaking up the status quo, but that's pretty much how X-Men makes money. One minute, it's this team, then it's this team and oop, let's shake things up and take this person's powers away or split this couple up, etc.

Like I said, it's a soap opera on the grandest scale. Only with less consistency. Changes in comics happen usually with new creative teams, but it seems like whoever new comes into an X-Men comic, it makes almost an entire 180.

I guess you're right, X-MPen does have the complicated soap opera comics market cornered. One of the reason I love the franchise, personally XD but yeah, if Rogue's powers evolution - which is pretty mild on the scale of X-Men complication - is too much for you, you're right to stay away.

I know, right? Six or seven years of changes summarized in too sentences is just too much.
