Katherine ‘Kitty’ Pryde was recruited at the age of 13 by Professor Xavier, a recruitment violently contended by Emma Frost and the Hellfire Club who also sought the gifted young mutant and continued to do so for years afterwards. From an early age she developed a close relationship with Ororo Monroe (a.k.a. Storm), became romantically involved with Piotor Rasputin (a.k.a. Colossus) and became best friends with Illyana, his sister (a.k.a. Magik). While in space battling the Brood, Kitty also encountered and befriended the a small dragon-like creature whom she named ‘Lockheed’ and he became her long-time companion.
Kitty has grown and evolved tremendously in her time with the X-Men, training with Wolverine, almost sacrificing herself to save the planet by phasing a massive meteoric bullet through the planet and eventually becoming the Headmistress of the Jean Grey School, an alternate academy begun by Wolverine in conflict with Cyclops and the Xavier Academy. In time, she met and and fell in love with Peter Quill (a.k.a. Starlord), and when he was elected to lead his people, she took on his title and leadership of the Guardians of the Galaxy in his stead.
Kitty Pryde has worn many different names - Sprite, Aeriel, Shadowcat and even Star Lord - and has been a valued member of several teams as well, including the X-Men, X-Calibur, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Guardians of the Galaxy. She is a gifted computer programmer, a capable leader and has shown herself to be both clever and incredibly resilient in battle. She is also one of the notably few Marvel characters to be openly Jewish.
Her powers allow her to make herself or select parts of herself intangible, rendering her immune to most forms of harm. She can also use her ‘phasing’ powers to move through solid objects, to make others intangible as well, to disrupt electrical systems and to make herself and others all but invisible both to optics and the naked eye. After exposure to the Black Vortex, her powers became enhanced to a cosmic level, allowing her to phase through different planes of existence as well. Kitty Pryde’s first appearance was in X-Men #129 (Janurary, 1980).
This is Kitty Pryde’s second appearance on this blog - she previously appeared in November of 2015.
Mikasa comes home to hear her and Levi’s cat yowling and hissing, and Levi yelling at it. The sound is coming from the bathroom. She walks in to find Levi trying to bathe the cat, because he doesn’t trust its self-cleaning abilities - “The damn thing smells like his litter box.”
and lets him do his thing.
Later, she cleans up the scratches that cover his arms and chest, while the cat prances around, practically sparkling.
