That. And it's a trick that she can pass on to others (she offered to teach Dani Moonstar, and gave Eli Bard a prolonged life of eternal youth).

@homosexuality: No Rogue doesn't do it the same way Selene does, Rogue absorbs there life force temporarily and gains there memory's and powers, selene litrally feeds on them and drains of the lifeforce like a vampire and retains there memories also but tottally different in style since selene remembers her victims forever!

is it her vamperic nature somehow?

My question is: If she has to constantly absorb life-force to maintain her longevity, does that not put her in a different category than the rest of the Externals whose extended lifespans were not reliant on vampiric dependency? Selene herself called out Apocalypse for technically not being immortal because of his reliance on Celestial technology to rejuvenate his cells, but isn't that the pot calling the kettle black as her own immortality is null and void without draining the energy of others for sustenance?

Nothing is temporarily as it seems with the absorption of Rogue, she clones the dns and the power template of those she touches.

And it has been said in many subjects that she keeps that energy, only that she has not learned to take advantage of it.

Rogue absorbs the same as selene and much more, selene only vital force.

In addition there are several possible futures topics and in all Rogue still looks young.

On the other hand the eternal youth of selene is only illusory, if it does not consume vital force it is constantly vulve old almost like a mummy and could die.
