Fans of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel may all be eager for the X-Men to join the franchise, but not all suggestions for how to make it happen are welcome. Even if it would eventually bring Rogue to the MCU, one recent suggestion isn't accepted by fans of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel.
The pitch, which was made on Reddit and has since been deleted presumably in response to unfavorable remarks, conjured up the whole The Marvelspost-credits scenario as a means of introducing Rogue to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a means of taking Captain Marvel's powers — a notion that many do not want to see become an MCU canon.
Carol would meet Rogue and communicate with her unaware that she has the ability to steal people's memories, powers, and personality traits via skin-to-skin contact. Only later would Carol realize that she couldn't no longer conjure up her cosmic powers. In the comics, Rogue is attempting to kill Carol after taking her memories and abilities.
The original poster was quick to defend their claim and explain that they aren't as interested in Carol losing her powers as they are in seeing such a massive Rogue narrative from the source material play out on screen.
The same idea was discussed on Reddit, but instead of coming from a place of Carol Danvers hatred, which was greeted with positive responses. First, we explain why Rogue doing something so extreme to Carol would be essential for the storyline, and not just gratuitous. It would instead serve as a plot device to ignite the hatred and racism against mutants, which is a major component of their comic lore.
This plot idea was accepted by most commentators, but others remained uneasy about whether Carol, of all people, should be the one who isn't sacrificed to pursue this narrative.
The X-Men arc has the potential to be one of Marvel's most interesting endeavors, considering the way racism plays out in their origins, and may uncover insightful, grounded narrative lines in a franchise that has become increasingly disconnected. It's certainly debateable whether Captain Marvel will be stripped of her powers for it.
