The mutant seems to have gained the power of delaying books by months.

Secondary mutations have been part of the X-Men franchise for the last twenty years. Whether it's Emma Frost's diamond shifting ability or Beast's cat look, many of the X-Men have been given unique new powers that open new storytelling possibilities. Now it seems that Rogue has been given a new secondary power, namely the ability to delay the release date of books in which she appears.
Bleeding Cool is reporting that Brian Wood's X-Men #1 has been delayed for six weeks, from April 17 all the way to May 29th. This is just the latest comic featuring Rogue to see massive delays. Uncanny Avengers has been plagued with delays from the get go, with unconfirmed reports that issue #6 will be released sometime around Malia Obama's inauguration. The eldest Obama daughter is currently fourteen years old.
With all the delays surrounding Rogue, it seems that her newest power is to somehow suck the lifeforce out of those drawing her, which include John Cassaday and Oliver Copiel. Alternatively, the new secondary mutation could be to compel artists to obsessively play their X-Box 360s.
Whatever the mutation is, we can't wait to read more about it sometime around Christmas, which is when we expect X-Men #2 to come out.
