    Rogue couldn't be an Avenger so long as she has an outstanding criminal record. As far as I know, she's never been pardoned for her actions as a terrorist in the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. She did considerable damage to Ryker's Island, and battled the X-Men at the Pentagon. And she didn't have the benefit of having been forced into terrorism like Wanda and Pietro. I don't see how she could be credibly admitted into the Avengers without having those issues addressed. Mind you, in Quesada's Marvel, continuity is largely irrelevent, so they can just pretend Rogue was never a terrorist.

She has no outstanding criminal record. The only charge that there was a warrant for her arrest for was a proven frame job.

Wanda and Pietro weren't forced into terrorism. They willingly joined Magneto because they felt they owed it to him, just like Rogue willingly joined her adopted mother.

And the Avengers have a long list of former criminals in their ranks.

City of Heroes is BACK!
