She flies out of the mansion and ends up following visions of the woman to the hospital where the discovers the woman comatose, while the one taunting her changes into Mystique. As the X-Men battle the Brotherhood outside the hospital, Mystique tells Rogue to touch her. She does, and remembers how Mystique took her in as a teenager, teaching her control over her powers, and eventually setting her against Ms. Marvel, the blonde woman. During their confrontation, Rogue permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's power, and haunted by her, sought out Xavier, who helped suppress her memories of Ms. Marvel. Back in the hospital, having absorbed Mystique's power, Rogue begins to shift into Ms. Marvel as the remnants of her mind begin to take over Rogue's body. Using Cerebro, Jean enters Rogue's mind and helps her contain Ms. Marvel and regain control of her own mind, after which Rogue affirms to Mystique that her place is with the X-Men. Later, Rogue visits Ms. Marvel in the hospital and touches her briefly, after which a smile appears on Ms. Marvel's face.
