It all happened way back in Avengers Annual #10 where Rogue was a member of the Mutant Brotherhood and hell bent on destroying the Avengers.
Rogue aka Anna Marie hails from Caldecott, Mississippi and considered her mutant ability a curse, more so than most mutants. Mainly because her powers severely limited physical contact for fear of hurting others. Rogue is convinced by Mystique in joining the the Mutant Brotherhood. After a falling out, Prof. Xavier convinces her to enroll in his school and join the X-Men.
Rogue possesses the ability to absorb the psyche and abilities of another human being (or members of some alien races) through skin contact. Rogue can absorb the memories, knowledge, talents, personality, and physical abilities of the person she touches, as well as occasionally duplicating in herself physical characteristics of her victims.
