Hi, everyone!  Follow Friday's here again, and I'm really lovin' this week's question :D But before I get to that, the features for this week are Book Savy Babe and The Bursting Bookshelf.  The Follow is hosted by two of the coolest ladies around, Parajunkee and Alison.

Q: What superhero is your alter-ego?

Okay, so I'm not going to pretend I had to even think about this one.  Although there are a ton of great superheroes out there, I am totally Rogue from X-Men.  Hands down, no question.  She can drain people of their life force and steal their powers at the same time--which basically means that she can have any power she wants.  Heroes tried to create a male Rogue, but there's no contest.  Peter Petrelli eat your heart out :D

Plus, I still have a bit of a crush on Gambit, so... Don't know how I'd react if a guy with a New Orleans drawl called me his "Chere" ;)

Hope you all have a great weekend,

Ninja Girl


  1. Rogue is awesome! Jean Gray was one of my choices this week. (I couldn't narrow it down.) And yes, Gambit ... swoon. Oh, childhood cartoon crushes, how fun they are to recall. :p I was so addicted to the X-Men cartoon. :)

  2. Rogue is a great choice. I had to google to see a list .

  3. Hopping through. Rogue sounds cool - very powerful, which always is more interesting.

  4. I love Rogue, too, especially the 90s cartoon version. Do you remember that episode 'A Rogue's Tale'? So great. Rogue is a much better character than Peter Petrelli, because there was no downside to Peter's powers, whereas Rogue has to really struggle to handle the power she has.

    I have a weakness for that Gambit accent, too.

  5. Just hopping through! I’m a new follower! Please follow back: :)

  6. I always did like Rogue, great pick! Thanks for stopping by my FF post today :) Book Savvy Babe

  7. Thanks for your comments over on mother.write.repeat, very positive and constructive! I just looked through your book list and see you have Enclave as a maybe. I read it and enjoyed it, although it is another zombie book, I liked it (I read Rot & Ruin and had the same thoughts as you, not a zombie fan, but liked that one too). Thanks again and good luck with the agent inbox contest :)

  8. I adore Gambit! I like Rogue too. I don't like how either of them were done in the movies, though.

  9. Hey Ninja!!

    It was between her and Storm for me. I chose storm cause it would be super useful when I go on raining on my Plus, I would be able to kick some serious BTW - I picked you as one of my top 5 fave blogs and G-reads Friday hop! Keep being the amazing book blogging Ninja Girl that you are!!

  14. Rogue is awesome! I love her and I'd also love to be her. I also love Jean Gray, but I don't think I'm nearly cool enough to be either of them!
