the time traveling mutant would be the antagonist/villain type character who causes the time line to alter with his traveling (rather its attentional/ accidental/ or even someone else pulling his strings) they would have to track him down and stop whatever he does to effect the future
needing to find him would probably lead them to seek Xavier (of the past)
plus, Rogue would only be able to hold his powers for a short time, so, if they don't find him it will be a one way trip
