Character

Amalgam is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe, a hero who is known to go through the timestream and absorb the traits of dying mutants, so that part of them can still carry on the quest for mutantkind. She first appeared in Uncanny X-Men Annual #16. This was also the issue in which she offered Archangel "The Choice;" a decision to allow her to absorb the mutant's features. She is considered a future version of the X-Men Rogue, having the same power, similar outfit, and appearance.
