Kitty Pryde is a young, sweet, upbeat, cheerful and optimistic teenage girl but she did have some naive tendencies due to having lived a sheltered life before joining the X-Men. Caring and sympathetic, she is considered virtuous in almost all respects. With the typical attitude of a valley girl, Kitty can come off as a bit of a ditz but she has since grown into a very intelligent, open-minded, and worldly young woman. Kitty isn't the most athletic person and her culinary skills are a constant source of dismay among the others. Regardless, she is a loyal friend and teammate as Kitty's in it to fight the good fight and will need no convincing to rush off into battle as she's always willing to help others in need.
Kitty is an American girl with a petite and slender figure. She has long brown hair usually pulled up into a ponytail with layers that frame her face and light blue eyes. Kitty usually wears a pink long sleeved sweater over a creamy-colored undershirt, light blue capris with an orange stripe on each pant leg, and brown sandals. She accessorizes by wearing a necklace and carries a small brown backpack.
Her second outfit includes a turquoise top with three-fourth length sleeves that shows off her midrift, light brown cargo khaki pants with a brown belt, and brown shoes. She accessorizes with a gold cylinder-shaped pendant.
Her third outfit includes a red button-up collared shirt that shows a bit of midrift, black trousers, and dark red sandals.
In her X-Men uniform, Kitty's is somewhat similar to Jean Grey's. She wears a gold collared, dark navy blue bodysuit with a light purple V-shaped stripe in the front. A gold utility belt marking the "X" logo goes around her waist. Light purple combat boots are worn for shoes, and thick gold gloves worn on both hands.
During her early teens, Kitty began having terrible headaches, which culminated one night during a dream where she felt like she was falling, only to awake having fallen straight through her bed and bedroom floor into the basement. The next day, her parents had told her not to go to school, while they attempted to help her through this. She snuck out anyway, only to meet another mutant, Lance Alvers, who had the ability to cause earthquakes in a limited area. After a minor incident with him, she was recruited by Jean Grey and Professor Xavier to join the X-Men.
Kitty's power allows her to phase through solid matter by shifting her atoms through intra-atomic spaces. She can phase through organic and inorganic matter with no damage to herself or others. When Kitty phases through an electrical system her ability disrupts the system and shorts it out. Kitty can pass her ability to any person or object she touches having phased a car full of passengers through a moving train, the X-Jet through a mountain, and a train through another oncoming train. Though the latter was too strenuous for her and her power cut out midway causing an explosion. Kitty is weightless when in her phasing state and can influence her movement to phase downward into the ground and move through it to emerge upward from a different spot.
Since her introduction, she has fought alongside the X-Men against The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, led by Lance Alvers. During her stay at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, she has become close friends with Kurt Wagner, and has possibly even considered a closer relationship with him. She is also shows to be best friends with her roommate, Rogue. Kitty also has a romantic relationship with Lance Alvers, now calling himself Avalanche, against the advice of some of her friends. She proves her heart is clearly with Xavier's cause of human-mutant coexistence rather than the Brotherhood's philosophy of mutant superiority.
One night, in an average middle-class home, a young girl is in her bedroom sleeping and she starts to dream. In the dream, the girl is flying high through a city, seemingly enjoying herself when she suddenly starts to fall. When she's about to crash from the fall, she wakes up from the dream to find herself in the basement of her home. She quickly starts to breakdown as her parents come running down the stairs to her cries. Her father asks her if she was sleepwalking, the girl denies this and replies that she fell through the ceiling. Meanwhile, at the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, the girl's mutant signature is picked up by Cerebro as it gives Charles Xavier her statistics. The girl
's name is revealed to be Kitty Pryde, age fifteen, who lives in Northbrook, Illinois.
As Kitty's mother comforts her by reassuring that she was just having a nightmare, her father looks at the ceiling and replies that he's not that sure as he realizes how his daughter had managed her way into the house's basement as her sheets and pillow are half way phased through the ceiling. Upon seeing this, Kitty becomes further hysterical and confused as she starts questioning what she is and what's happening to her.
Meanwhile, despite the previous events from last night, Kitty still decides to go to school before being caught by her mother while trying to sneak out. Her mother questions her decision about leaving while bringing up what they decided earlier, Kitty expresses her irritation that neither her father or her wanted to talk about it before her father starts calling for her. Kitty begs her mother to let her leave as her father would make her stay home. As her mother grants her permission to leave the house, Kitty blows her a kiss in gratitude as she's leaving while her mother looks on, concerned.
After arriving at school, Kitty goes to her locker to put her books away while getting ready for her P.E. class before being shoved and locked in her own locker by two girls named Riley and Sydeny. Kitty pounds on the door and yells from them to let her out but the two girls laugh
at her as they run away to their next class. Soon afterwards, a teenage guy comes out of the men's restroom as he looks around to make sure that the hallways are empty. He then starts to spray paint graffiti over all the lockers in the hallway. Inside the locker, Kitty hears something outside and begs to be let out before phasing through and simultaneously
slamming into Lance Alvers as he's passing by. Lance is enthusiastic about Kitty's powers and chooses to introduce himself to her as he tells her that he understands because she is just like him. Kitty is skeptical before he proves this by showing her his powers as he concentrates, causing a small earthquake in the near vicinity. After this demonstration, she concludes that he was some sort of freak before running off, leaving Lance with the proclamation that he would meet her again.
Arriving late outside for her gym class, Kitty fails the long jump course via tripping, much to the enjoyment of Riley and Sydeny. When Riley takes her turn, Lance causes a tremor and hits Riley with a load of sand during her long jump. Kitty realizes Lance's involvement after he waves at her from the school's rooftop before running off towards the school and bumping into Jean Grey on the way.
Retreating to the school's auditorium, Kitty is frustrated and starts kicking around the set props on stage. She knocks over a bowl and as she tries to catch it, the bowl phases through her hands. Kitty begins to experiment with her powers before being walked in on by Jean. Kitty was surprised to see the X-Man when she came after her, who she expected to be a friend of Riley. Kitty tells Jean that she had nothing to due with the incident that happened in the sand pit earlier. Jean assured that she was not as Kitty relates that Jean looked like she would be Riley's friend as Kitty tried to hide from her by placing the mask she practiced with in front of her face. Jean tries to talk with Kitty by telling her that she knows what's happening but Kitty angrily tells her that she does not know anything and neither does that "creepy guy", Lance. Though Jean tried to comfort her by telling Kitty to forget about Lance and that this was about her and her new gift, Kitty didn't believe Jean initially, thinking that she has a curse instead. Jean says that she wants to help Kitty through this before Kitty bluntly cuts her off by saying that she does not want any of this and that it was hard enough just trying to be normal. Jean tries again by showing Kitty her powers as she levitated the mask in Kitty's hands. Jean further relates to Kitty by revealing that when she first gained her powers, she hated them as well. But, Kitty still does not believe Jean as she says that is must be a trick. Jean comes back with the fact that she knows that Kitty believes her as Jean also reveals that she could read minds, much to Kitty's discomfort as this causes her to scream at Jean to get out of her head and running away from her.
Leaving the auditorium, Kitty changed clothes and retreated to her locker getting her books for her next period before being confronted by Lance. Initially trying to fight him, Lance properly introduces himself and reveals to her that he won't use his powers as he merely wants to talk to her. At first Kitty's still wary of him, but after Lance explains to her how lonely and sick he felt after he first got his powers, that he knows what she's going through before inviting her to see him after school by the office in an hour so he can show her how to control her powers.Later, Lance is outside the school's office waiting for Kitty. Once she arrives, she questions how does he take control. Lance tells her that they would need to admit to something that no one wants to - that they are outsiders and that there may actually be something wrong with them. As Kitty begins to become very depressed, Lance tells her that she should not fret but to embrace the fact. As the way he sees it is that fate dealt them winning cards, if they play them together. Kitty's still confused as nothing is making any sense to her but Lance reassures her. She succeeds in phasing through the school's office and she's excited about her powers for the first time as Lance congratulates her on the powers and display of control she had used. Outside, Jean Grey and Xavier met up with Kitty's parents telling them that Kitty has broken into the office as her parents tell them that she has never done something like this before. Jean departs with Kitty's parents to go find her.
As Lance finishes downloading the test results and about to change their school grades, Kitty gets upset as she realizes that Lance was using her and her powers for his own personal gain. Lance starts to get a bit more forceful with Kitty as she struggling to get away from him when Jean Grey and Kitty's parents arrive. Originally, Kitty's father tries to stop Lance but the said mutant uses his powers to topple a bookcase on top of him. Lance, afraid of what might happen if they're caught, creates a hole in the wall via his powers as they try to talk Kitty out of going with Lance.
Things eventually escalate to the point where Lance decides to bring the whole school down to stop Kitty's parents and Jean from following them. While Lance began to take her away, Jean reminded Kitty of when she said that she did not want her powers to be a curse and guaranteed that they would be once she was with him. Lance tells them that it's too late, she's with him now as he grips her arm and starts to drag Kitty along with him through his escape route. Kitty finally realizes that Lance was wrong and dangerous after he tries to keep her from her family. After she phases her arm out of Lance's grip, Kitty runs back to her parents. Lance becomes quite furious, creating a large tremor that accidently
causes the ceiling to fall in around and on top of her, then quickly leaves. Jean manages to use her telekinesis to keep the ceiling debris from collapsing around her and Kitty's parents with Xavier's help. As Kitty's parents are still grieving over the apparent loss of their daughter, Kitty phases through the rubble. After using her powers to save her family, Jean and herself, Xavier tells her that she used her gift well. Kitty hugs and apologizes to her parents as she tells her father that the X-Men want to help her and that she trusts them. Her father agrees as they all decide to talk with Professor Xavier about Kitty entering his school.
Since joining the X-Men, Kitty had difficulty fitting in with the others as she was inexperienced, especially when compared to the rest of the team. At the Xavier Institute, the X-Men are watching Storm and Wolverine in the Danger Room as they test out the mansion's security systems, which everyone's very impressed by both their skills. If not a little horrified by Wolverine's suggestion to use poisonous gas next time. Kitty then questions if anyone besides her is freaked out by the X-Men's standard protocol, promptly being starred at by her fellow members of the group and concluding that it was just her. Kurt however, tells her that she would be fine and teleports around her, much to her annoyance as he
reassures Kitty that she's among friends. Upon telling Kitty that he will alert her of his next transportation, she leaves the group by phasing through the floor and stating that she's going to drop out. As Xavier comes and tells Scott to assemble the full team, Xavier explains that Cerebro had detected a new mutant, of whom is Rogue and he believes to be a danger to herself and others. He tells the group that they are dealing with a rogue.
While the X-Men are aboard the Blackbird, Shadowcat relates her positive impressions of Cyclops to Jean, even calling him cute. While Jean dismisses this as she relates to Kitty that he's stiff, Jean does begin to admit that he may be before being cut off as the scene changes to a jealous Nightcrawler, who overhears their conversation and teleports to the front of the Blackbird, in an attempt to impress Shadowcat. However, he loses his footing and begins to fall, teleporting into the Blackbird and falling on Shadowcat. After scolding from Xavier, whom reminded him that he had frightened her, Nightcrawler apologizes. Howe
ver, Shadowcat is completely disgusted with Nightcrawler as she tells him to stay away from her and walks away to sit in the front with Cyclops. As she is walking, Wolverine merely utters kids in annoyance.
The X-Men try to extract information from Cody, which Wolverine questions if it is really necessary to do so. Charles relates that Cody holds the secret to their rogue. Afterwards, Wolverine is with Shadowcat and Nightcrawler, searching for Rogue in a dumpster. He explains that her mind is confused and thus, difficult for Charles to pinpoint before telling them that he smells fear. Finding Rogue, Wolverine comes with Shadowcat and Nightcrawler, causing her to continue running. Nightcrawler convinces Wolverine to let him talk to Rogue since she seems so terrified of Wolverine. He agrees and tells Nightcrawler to put on his image inducer and to watch Shadowcat, much to her irritation. Nightcrawler gets there before her and seems to be succeeding in winning Rogue over. However, still bitter over Wolverine's comment, Shadowcat lunges at Rogue and pins her down before being pushed off.
While in the midst of their struggle, Nightcrawler is accidently touched by Rogue and rendered unconscious. Rogue teleports as Shadowcat frantically begs for him to come back to his senses, crying out his name in desperation. Shadowcat concludes that she can contact Xavier with her mind and does just that, being told by Xavier to calm down and lower her volume. After Shadowcat relates to Xavier that Nightcrawler is injured and Charles relates the same information to the X-Men, Wolverine blames himself and states that he should have gone with them as he proceeds to go find them. While looming over her fallen comrade, Shadowcat began to express that she was warming up to his physical appearance and clang desperately to hope that he would survive.
Later, Shadowcat, Xavier, Wolverine who's carrying a still unconscious Nightcrawler rejoins with the rest of the X-Men as Wolverine sniffs and smells Mystique, stating that she can change her appearance, but not her scent. After Shadowcat tells them that they have to go after her, Xavier tells her that they have had enough damage and Rogue must come of her own free will or not at all, also noting that they must tend to their wounded. Nightcrawler awakes from his comatose state, prompting Shadowcat to happily hug him and exclaim that he's alright, indicating she has begun to like him. As she clangs to his arm, Shadowcat reassures Nightcrawler that everything is going to be fine after he asks what happened as she continues to hug him.
At lunch the X-Men are sitting together at a table. Scott is telling them of his pairing with Rogue. Fred accidentally flips the table and sends the food flying into Duncan and his jock friends. A food fight breaks out and the Blob ends up busting up the cafeteria.
Kurt and Kitty are semi-training, they're playing keep away with a football, under Wolverines instruction, while Xavier watches. Kitty stats off with the ball, but after phasing though a tree, and runs into a branch from another one, give Kurt time to take the ball back. He ports around with if for a while, until Kitty jumps though the air and takes it back, phasing thought kurt, and pulling his tail. They both fall to the ground. The game is interrupted when Logan orders him to contact Scott, as Jean has been taken.
Kurt, Kitty and Scott head out to find Jean. Later Jean asks Rogue why she helped them and Rogue becomes upset and tells them that she doesn't know. She runs off and Wolverine stops Jean from following saying that Rogue isn't ready yet. Kitty says that she feels like they owe Rogue now and Scott agrees.
One morning at breakfast the X-Men talk about Evan Daniels. Later, Evan is training in the danger room with the other X-Men. Kitty ends the session to tell Evan that a last minute basketball game has been scheduled and he's needed at the school.
At the mansion the X-Men are hanging out in the pool. Kurt cannonballs in and knocks Kitty off of her float, annoying her. Xavier talks to Evan about how they're happy to have him as Kitty complains to Xavier about Kurt getting fur in the pool. Evan jumps in the pool, lands on Kitty's float and pops it with his spikes. He says he's sorry as she crosses her arms and glares at him angrily for destorying the float while everyone else laughs.
At lunch in the schoolyard, Kurt, Scott, Jean, Evan and Kitty talk about going to Duncan Matthew's party. Everyone but Scott really wants to go and while they try to talk him into it, Evan steals and drinks everyone's milk. Scott says that it's just too dangerous for them to chance it, someone could get too close to Kurt and feel his fur. Kurt makes a remark about "chicks digging the fuzzy dude" and makes eyes at Kitty, Kitty takes off saying she'll see them later with a slightly irritated look on her face.
Rogue shows up to tell the X-Men that she did something to Kurt. She takes them to the lab. Kitty and Evan study the gizmo and figure out that Kurt is trapped in a pocket dimension. Scott wants to destroy it and as he gets ready to blast the gizmo to pieces, Kitty asks why she can't just phase through it and quietly short it out. Scott and Evan give her blank looks in response and she says to forget she said anything and then quietly whispers to Jean about what is it with guys and explosions anyway.
Kurt ports in to say "Reset. Don't..." before he disappears again. The X-Men argue over what he meant. Evan still wants to destroy it, but Scott says Kurt meant for them to reset not destroy it. Scott resets it and the portal opens. Kurt and Forge cannot teleport through because they need a bigger power source. Kurt teleports him and Forge to Principal Darkholme's car.
Blob, Avalanche, and Toad show up looking for Rogue by Mystique's request. Scott is surprised that Rogue is working for Mystique. Avalanche asks who's side she's on and Rogue says it's not my fight and leaves. The rest fight over the gizmo. Jean and Scott put the Blob down. Avalanche knocks Kitty through a wall, but she phases back through and calls him a loser. Toad tries to get past Spyke and reach the gizmo, but Spyke puts up a wall of spikes and knocks him down.
Kurt and Forge use the battery from Raven's car and drive it right through the portal. They run over the gizmo smashing it and then straight into the Blob. The Brotherhood take off since the gizmo is smashed. Scott offers Forge a place at Xaviers, but he just wants to go home.
The X-Men load up into Scott's convertable and Kurt and Scott apologize to each other. Scott says he was wrong and they all decide to go to the party after all.
The X-Men infiltrate a base at night. Shadowcat and Spyke take out the guards....Scott freaks out and stops the simulation. The base disappears and Rogue shuts down and drops to the floor.
Charles Xavier comes through Danger Room doors and tells Scott that he's never to stop simulation unless he's hurt. Scott tells Xavier that Rogue was not supposed to be part of the simulation. Xavier said he added her as an element of surprise and that they have to get used to that during missions. He tells them the training session is over and it's time to go to school.
At the institute, the kids confront Xavier about withholding info about Mystique who is their principal. Xavier asks Rogue what she thinks. When Rogue says it isn't her place, Kitty tells her she's part of the family now. Rogue tells them that she's found that honesty is very important. Xavier tells them he'll try to be more open with them in the future.
Kitty bumps into Jason who is putting up posters for the play Dracula The Rock Opera where he is the male lead. He's flirting with Kitty, while Rogue watches on, slightly disgusted. Jason invites her to come try out as they need girls who can sing and dance. He then leaves to put up more posters. When he leaves Rogue tells her she's pathetic. Kitty tells her that at least she's got a shot at being in the play. Rogue then catches Spyke taping them and threatens him if he tapes her again they're going to calling him 'Spyke-less'. Kitty and Rogue decide to try out for the play and walk off in a huff.
Sabertooth rips open the front gates of the school. The rest of the X-Men come running. Wolverine tries to keep them out of it but Storm tells him it's no place for his personal wars. Through a combined effort, they send Sabertooth packing on his way again.
Evan runs into Kitty and Rogue arguing about rehearsing for the play. He asks them to help with the Sabretooth problem. As they leave the school on a moped/scooter Sabertooth follows them.
Evan is taping Kitty and Rogue dancing in the woods. Rogue is pretty stiff and Evan suggests that she use her power to snatch some of Kitty's moves. Kitty agrees to try it and they touch, then they start dancing together. Sabertooth barrels onto the scene and yanks up Evan. He pops his spikes and Sabertooth flings him into Rogue. Rogue comes to and calls him away from Kitty.
She tries to touch him, but he's holding her arms out and she can't reach him. Wolverine arrives and Sabertooth drops Rogue as he's tackled by Logan. Rogue pops him from behind and lays him out. She grows fur all over, her hair gets longer, and fangs and claws pop out. Logan yells at them for planning such a stupid stunt and tells them they're all grounded. Kitty and Rogue ask what'll happen to Sabertooth now.
They drop Sabertooth off in the snow (Alaska) and Xavier wipes his mind.
The school shows Spyke's "film" at the end about the X-Men being his new family. Each of the X-Men are shown in some candid shots and the last shots are of Kitty and Rogue both dancing in the school play together and Spyke dedicating it to his new family. All the other X-men show up to support him. They smile at the end to each other.
In the mountains, Scott, Jean, Kurt, Kitty, Evan, and Rogue have just shipped in to a survival training camp. Scott is chosen to be group leader due to his scholastic achievements. When Sergeant Hawke leaves the kids grumble about being there. Rogue says she's going AWOL and asks if anyone knows how to hot-wire a school bus. Scott stops them and Jean says it's either this or survival training with Wolverine. They all grab their bags and move off grumbling.
Lance and Scott race over an obstacle course. Lance uses his power to dunk Scott in the river. Spyke starts to go after Lance, but Jean stops him and says that they've agreed not to use powers. She says Scott can deal with Lance like a leader. Scott uses an optic blast to knock Lance out of his raft. He then takes Lance's raft and wins the race. Jean says "or not".
Everyone argues over who should have won fairly. Hawk blows the whistle and makes them all do push-ups. He tells them that if they want to prove how tough they are, they have to get a flag from the top of Mt. Humiliation. Quicksilver says he can get the flag while his team takes a break, Nightcrawler says "not before I can". Hawk tells them that the whole team has to reach the top and retrieve the flag together.
The X-kids are running full tilt, and complaining about Scott, how all he cares about is winning the race.
Scott sends Kurt up to make sure that the flag is still up top. Then he gets Evan to spyke a rope up to the top so they can win. Evan asks if he's sure he wants to do it that way and Scott says yes. Scott starts up the rope, but when he looks back, the other X-Men are staring at him disapprovingly. Jean starts climbing up the mountain by hand.
The X-Kids are almost to the flag when the tremors start. Spyke is knocked off of the wall, but Jean saves him with her TK. When Scott tries to get her to levitate them all to the top she refuses. He says that she just used it for Spyke and asks her what's the difference. Jean gets mad and tells him that a real X-Man would know the difference. Rogue finds the Brotherhood at the bottom of a shaft. Toad begs them not to leave them behind over a stupid race. Scott tells them they won't.
On the mountain, the X-Kids save the Brotherhood. As they're pulling out the last one, Avalanche, the Blob points towards the flag and Quicksilver takes off. Nightcrawler ports up and they reach the flag at the same time and begin wrestling over it. The X-Jet pulls up suddenly and Storm tells them over the loud speaker that Xavier and Mystique are in trouble. Scott asks Lance if he's ready and he replies "Let's go!". The X-Jet flies by Sgt. Hawk and the flag and a pic of all of the X-Men and Brotherhood at the top of the mountain drops to the ground beside him.
Everyone arrives as Juggernaut reaches for Xavier, but Jean uses her Telekinesis to pull him away. She can't hold him long though and collapses.
Wolverine tells them to try to get Juggernaut's helmet. Juggernaut goes for Jean, but the Blob rushes in and knocks him away from her. Nightcrawler ports in while he's stunned and unlatches one of the four latches holding on his helmet. Juggernaut throws Nightcrawler and then charges the Blob and knocks him back across the Danger Room.
Cyclops blasts him, but Juggernaut picks up a piece of the Dangerroom wreckage and throws it at him. Avalanche uses his tremors and is able to make him stumble. Quicksilver is able to get to him long enough to open another latch. Juggernaut throws Quicksilver off, but Storm steps up and disorients him with wind gusts. He stumbles back and falls. Kit and Rogue phase out of the wall and are able to get the last two latches. Toad uses his tongue to grab Juggernaut's helmet and yank it free. Xavier is then able to use his powers to take out Juggernaut.
As the X-Kids and Brotherhood cheer and congratulate one another, Mystique comments about it not being a sight you see everyday. Xavier agrees and Mystique takes the Brotherhood home.
Rogue and Kitty are sharing a bedroom. Rogue is talking on the phone as Kitty climbs into bed and snuggles a stuffed dragon (Lockheed). A few hours later, Rogue wakes up screaming.
Everyone rushes into the girls' bedroom to find out what's going on, and as Rogue is telling them about the nightmare, she realizes that the baby in her dream was really Kurt. Charles Xavier asks Jean, Rogue and Kurt to come down to the library where he reads Rogue's mind.
The Brotherhood knock out Kurt at the construction site he was meeting Mystique at, but the other X-Men show up and a fight ensues. Rogue steals Avalanche's power and tries to stop Mystique from running off. Mystique tells her it's too late for answers and when Rogue causes a quake she turns into a raven and flies away.
Kitty wakes up to her alarm and phases her hand through it to turn it off, presumibly just broken it. She stumbles into the bathroom, phasing through the door, not realizing it reads 'occupied' and rushes right back out again. Rogue opens the door and shakes her brush at Kitty telling her the sign said occupied and the door was locked. Kitty mumbles something about anyone being able to read at this time in the morning and Rogue closes the door on her. Back in her room, Kitty is on her bed writing an E-mail to her parents. Mostly she complains about how crowded the mansion is, and how she can never find anywhere where she can be alone. Rogue walks in and begins to blow dry her hair. Kitty grumps and leaves the room. In the hallway she's literally run over by the other X-Men.
She settles into the kitchen where Logan is reading the newspaper. She writes about how he's a loner and never wants to talk to anyone. When she looks up from her laptop at him, Wolverine asks if he's been reading too loudly for her. She's says that she was just enjoying the quiet. Then the other X-Men burst into the room making tons of noise.
Everyone's going about their business to get breakfast while Scott turns on the news to drink his coffee too, Logan see the report and turns up the valume all the way, it's about a possible "bigfoot" sighting, given all the damage on "Mt. McKenna" in Canada. Wolverine leaves upset and Kitty writes about how he doesn't act like they're family, that he's always doing "this lone wolf thing". Kitty passes by in the hallway and hears Logan destroying his room. When he staggers out of his room she asks if everything is okay. He says something about redecorating and pushes past her.
Downstairs, Kitty finds Evan "spyking" a poster to the ceiling. Kitty argues with him over it being everyone's space and he tells her to deal with it. He leaves and she hops onto the sofa to continue writing. She writes about his immaturity, then the poster comes loose and falls onto her head. Next she climbs into a tree outside by the garage. Scott is nearby working on his car. Kitty writes about Scott and how sometimes he tries to be so responsible and others he's a total teenager. Scott revs his car and takes off with his stereo blaring, almost causing Kitty to nearly fall from the tree. She notices Logan and Charles Xavier in a courtyard nearby and writes about Xavier keeping everything together at the Institute.
Later Kitty is hiding in the Blackbird trying to finish her letter before School. She writes to her parents about Kurt and how he's always popping in on her and startling her. About that time Kurt ports in and startles her. He asks what she's doing in the Blackbird, and says Scott's going to give them a ride to school. Kitty is irritated and says she only wanted one minute alone. He comments on her being touchy, but about then the Blackbird takes off and they're thrown to the floor.
They head up to the cockpit and find out that Logan is flying the jet. Kitty tries to stop Kurt from going up to him, saying he's been acting wierd all day. Kurt tells her to stop being dramatic and heads up to the pilot's seat. When he puts his hand on Logan's shoulder, Logan pops his claws and swipes towards his head. Kurt stammers and ports back to Kitty. Wolverine follows him back and asks why they're following him, he keeps grabbing his head and groaning. Kitty tries to tell him that they aren't following him, but he becomes angry and tries to slice them with his claws. Kurt ports them back. Logan get angry, mumbling to himself about having to take them back, that they have to get away, that there's something in his head and he can't control himself or be trusted. He closes the door and locks himself in the cockpit. Kurt states, the've been locked in, and kitty tells him, No, Logan locked himself in, to keep them safe. Kitty asks Kurt if he can port them to the ground but he says they're going way to fast and to high up. Kitty says they're stuck on the flight.
Logan lands the jet in the mountains and begins hiking up the peak. Kitty phases out of the jet and Kurt ports out saying that the communicators have been jammed. They follow Logan up the mountain.
Kurt and Kitty spot Wolverine up on the mountain, but as Kitty waves to him, Sabertooth walks up to stand beside him. They both start after Kurt and Kitty. The two kids run, but Sabertooth and Wolverine catch up to them quickly. Kitty tries to dodge Wolverine, but trips and ends up sliding down a slope. Wolverine catches up to Kitty and she tries to talk to him. She's beggining to get through with him when the scientist cranks the dial up to 60%. Wolverine starts chasing her again. She gets away by phasing through a rock face, but almost plunges into a ravine on the other side.
Kitty phases up through the ground behind him. He turns on her, but freezes before his claws reach her. Kurt ports in and wants to teleport them both away, but Kitty gets him to wait. She lowers Wolverine's hood and asks him if he remembers her. She tells him he's fighting whatever they've done to him and that he can win. When she asks if he really wants to hurt her, he pulls in his claws and drops to his knees. She throws her arms around his neck and they hug. Sabertooth growls out "Wrong move" and tackles Logan.
Kurt and Kitty port into the lab ahead of Sabertooth. Kitty runs ahead to find Logan. They have Wolverine pretty much tied up when Kitty phases in and sees what's happening. She runs through the droids shorting them out, then continues on and dives into the labs control panels. Everything starts shorting out and there are some explosions as Kitty phases back out of the panels. Wolverine regains control and
starts after the Scientist. The Scientist says that the whole lab is going to blow. Wolverine tells Kitty to leave. She doesn't want to leave without him, but Kurt ports in and grabs her. The kids port out outside and in the distance, Kurt and Kitty re-appear. They watch as the whole top of the mountain explodes. Later as they're waiting, Logan staggers up to them looking very run into the ground.
Kitty's been in every hour to check on Logan since the surgery that removed the chip in his head. Kitty sits inside the dinning room finishing the letter to her parents. She writes about how even though the place is crowded, she'd miss bumping into everyone if they weren't there. That it's all a part of being a family.
- The Cauldron I
Rogue, Kitty and Evan come running out as the jet takes off and are upset that they were left behind. Kitty says she wouldn't want a crowd around is she was going to meet a brother she hadn't seen in ten years either. Kurt tells them Hawaii isn't the only place with beaches and they decide to go to a local beach. Kit, Kurt and Evan roll out of the garage in the huge X-tank/hummer and call for Rogue to hurry up. She comes running out of the house saying she couldn't find Jean, so she left her a note. She nearly trips over a cat along the way and shoos it, saying she hates cats, & they drive off.
The X-kids are ambushed by the brotherhood. They end up crashing into the Blob on the beach. Rogue and Kurt tackle Toad and Avalanche. Fred jumps onto Kitty. She phases out from under him, but passes out.
- The Cauldron II
On the beach Kitty, Kurt and Evan question Todd about what's going on. He mutters to himself about not owing Magneto anything anymore. Kitty asks who's Magneto and Toad tells them all about Magneto and his plan.
At the mansion the X-Kids are looking for Storm, but they find Mystique instead. Toad taunts Mystiques about being a loser. She roughs him up, as Kurt asks her what she's doing there. She tells them all that no one discards her, and she's planning on paying Magneto a visit. She tells them that they can go together, or she can go alone. Wolverine walks in and says she won't be alone. Mystique tells him that she knows Magneto and she's calling the shots. Wolverine tells her she can get her own ride. She agrees to go along. They take off in the new jet "XM-Velocity".
XM-Velocity flies across the surface of the moon. Wolverine tells them that there's no metal in the plane.
Kitty phases the kids out after Scott & Alex crash a jet to the ground. Mystique climbs out of the top and heads straight for Magneto. Wolverine releases the other X-Men from the stasis tubes and tells them to all gather at the X-Jet. Xavier send Storm and Rogue to "ready the jet" as he and Jean try to free the brothers from the debris.
X-Kids take on the Brotherhood. Kurt drops the Blob, Kit and Spyke take out Avalanche. Toad helps Mystique against Magneto.
The brotherhood heads for the X-Jet, when they get to Storm and the block, Blob bulldozers his way through. Toad, Avalanche, and Blob head for the jet. Kit and Spyke show up dragging Quicksilver and Storm tells them to get onto the jet. Rogue runs up using Quicksilver's speed to tell Storm that Alex and Scott are still trapped and Wolverine is having trouble with Sabertooth.
The X-Jet comes back for Scott & Alex when they begin to run for it, but there are still too many tremors and falling debris and it can't get to them. Asteroid M begins to fall and Alex and Scott use their powers to blast it apart as it crashes towards them. They both collapse to the ground back to normal.
The X-Jet lands and Scott apologizes to everyone for the way he's been acting. Alex says so much for Havok, but at least I have my brother back. Xavier tells Alex that they'll help him with his powers if he wants and that they'll do it together, unified, as the X-Men.
Between the defeat of Magneto and the expansion of the X-Men with the introduction of the New Mutants, Kitty has not changed much and continued to be a vital member of the X-Men. Shadowcat started to teach the new kids, alongside Cyclops, Jean Grey, Rogue, Spyke and Nightcrawler. She continued to dodge the passes of affection that Lance Alvers used to try and attract Kitty to him with.
- Growing Pains
Kitty was with the other X-Men as they watched and cheered on Jean during her soccer game. After the game, she rode home with Scott and Kurt. While Scott was driving down a busy city street, Kurt and Kitty were discussing about the band called "The Stone Cyphers". Suddenly, Scott is forced into the other lane by a driver going way too fast, with a lot of police cars chasing him. Kurt asks what was his hurry. Kitty says snidely it's probably the twelve police cars on his tail. The wild driver runs a red light, and narrowly misses getting t-boned by a school bus loaded with kids. The driver turns onto a bridge which backtracks right over the bus, and the police set up a road block in order to stop the driver, who swerves out of the way, and dangles from the bridge, right over the school bus.
Scott, Kurt, and Kitty begin arguing over whether or not to step in and help, afraid of revealing themselves. Finally, they see the car beginning to go over the edge. Scott gives the go-ahead, causing Kurt to teleport into the car, and teleport the driver out. Scott fires a small optic blast, knocking the car away from the bus, thus saving the kids. Kurt rematerializes next to the bus and pushes the confused driver forward out into the open scene, as Kurt teleports back to Scott and Kitty. When the police arrest the driver, Kitty uses her powers to phase the three X-Men into an abandoned building, not wanting to be spotted, just avoiding a news crew running to the scene. At the Institute, Scott drives up in his car, with Kurt and Kitty still in tow. The three are discussing whether or not to tell anyone what happened, Kitty suggests by keeping quiet about it. But as they look towards the front doors and see Xavier, Ororo, and Logan waiting for them. She then says that they could blame it all on Kurt.
The next day at school, everyone is gathered in the gym for an assembly. Kitty is talking to some of her friends when Lance notices her looking his way and he heads over to sit behind her. When Lance tries to talk to her, Kitty brushes him off by saying that shouldn't he be erupting somewhere. As the new principal, Edward Kelly walks toward the podium, Lance uses his powers to shake the place up and make Kelly stumble. Kitty, knowing that the tremor was Lance, glares at him. He waves and smiles goofly at her, Kitty softly giggles thus making Lance very happy. He, trying to get her attention again, asks if she wants to see some real shaking, then starts a tremor that shakes loose the scoreboard over Kelly's head. The scoreboard just misses Kelly and the staff, Kitty gets angry at Lance and tells him to get a clue.
After the assembly, as Scott waits by his car, he hears Kitty and Lance arguing down by Lance's jeep. Lance tells her that he's sorry about the scoreboard situation and asks her not to be mad, but she tells him that he can be a real jerk sometimes. She starts to walk away but Lance grabs her arm to stop her. Scott shows up and tells him to leave her alone as Kitty phases her arm out of Lance's grip. Lance says that it was between him and Kitty not Scott. When Lance tries to goad Scott into fighting with his powers, Kitty stops him saying that Lance knows they can't use their powers in public. Scott walks away and tells her to come along. She hesitates for a second, but as the rest of the Brotherhood laugh, she huffs and walks away.
At the prep game rally, Kitty was sitting with the other X-Men. When the game begins, the Brotherhood show up and interrupt the game as Avalanche and the others announce that they're mutants, that have special powers. Kitty is shocked by this huge annoucement and that she can't believe that Lance would actually call them out. TV cameras catch all the action as he also announces that the Xavier Institute is also filled with mutants and names Scott and Jean personally. The Brotherhood starts wrecking the stadium and harassing Kelly. The X-Kids take off to change into uniform as Xavier calls to Storm, telepathically, that they need her. The X-Kids hit the field with Cyclops blasting the hawk out of Blob's hands and it flies into the gym causing a small explosion. Both Spyke and Shadowcat destroy the TV cameras and tapes, as Jean saves Kelly from Quicksilver. Blob starts destroying the stadium seats that still have people on them. But he is then sapped by Rogue and the whole construction falls on both of them. Shadowcat goes to help Rogue get out of the wreck while also helping the other victims. She doesn't see that the hawk statue above her is about to fall. Avalanche is fighting with Cyclops, but he interrupts his battle as he realizes that the statue is about to fall on Shadowcat. He runs and pushes Shadowcat out of the way as the school's mascot comes crashing down on top of him. Shadowcat screams in horror at what had happened and she phases him out from under the statue. When Storm comes and creates a rainstorm that causes everyone to stop fighting and calm down, Shadowcat stays with an unconscious Avalanche until he wakes up again.
Kitty banded together with Rogue, Boom-Boom, Magma, and Jean Grey to form the crime-fighting Bayville Sirens, the ultimate expression of "girl-power." The five dressed in what could only be described as punk-gothic, and used their abilities to bring down a chop-shop/car theft ring. Immediately afterwards, the group disbanded under threat of arrest for vigilantism (a threat actually made by Mystique in disguise), but the incident has shown that mutants can use their powers for the good of humanity.
- Power Surge
At a school assembly, Jean wins the MVP Soccer Award. Everyone is cheering madly, except Rogue. Jean starts her acceptance speech, but she freaks out, knocking over the awards table and yelling. She makes a joke about losing her head since she broke the figure of her award and finishes her speech. Outside Lance catches up to Kitty and walks her to chemistry.
In class Lance and Kitty talk. Lance says he's really into chemistry and Kitty asks if he's ever made a "stink bomb". The two seem to be getting along pretty well and are now very friendly. The new chemistry teacher comes in and introduces himself as Mr. McCoy, and tells them that he's also their new gym coach. Then he tells them that they're going to make stink bombs and everyone cheers. Kitty and Lance smile at each another.
Later at the Institute, Scott is in a huge hurry to make it to the party on time. He nearly crashes into Kitty as she phases through the hall. She asks if he knows of a remedy for "stink bomb aroma". He tells her isolation.
Back home, Scott is peeved. Xavier and Kurt ask what's happened and Jean tells them it's not worth talking about. Rogue and Risty walk in, and Kurt is barely able to get his image inducer activated in time. Rogue makes a comment about everyone staring at them rudely and Kit phases in behind them. Risty is surprised and asks where she came from. Wolverine shows up and pops his claws to grab an apple, then leaves.
Next day at track try outs, javelin hurls towards Kitty and some other girls getting ready to run a race. Lance is watching Kit from the stands nearby and sees the javelin coming. He uses his power to save Kitty. He causes a tremor that knocks the girls off of their feet and the javelin passes by just above their heads. Kitty looks back and Lance smiles and waves at her, then shrugs.
Scott and Kitty rush Jean back to the Institute. They take her to a lab. Xavier asks Scott to leave as items begin to fly about the room by themselves.
Downstairs everyone reconvenes, as crashes and explosions can be heard upstairs. They come up with a plan for Rogue to drain off some of the excess in Jean's mind as Scott tries to reach her consciousness. Back upstairs debris is flying everywhere. The X-Men try to take out some of the debris as Nightcrawler ports Rogue close to Jean where she's floating suspended in the middle of the maelstrom. Rogue is able to touch Jean, but then she's ripped loose and thrown around with everything else. Scott catches her and Kit holds her as he tries to talk to Jean. Jean is able to reign in her own power. Jean drops back down to the lab table.
Kitty and Lance were talking on the phone until 1:30 am. Later that day, Kitty confronts Lance at the water fountain and the two share an awkward moment. Kitty asks Lance to the dance, and he says he'll think about it. After a moment, he says yes; and in celebration, accidentally causes a small earthquake.
Later at The Brotherhood House, the gang is giving Lance a hard time about going to the dance with Kitty.
In the gym, Lance and Kitty are enjoying themselves when the rift opens up between them. Two creatures emerge and the rest of the students run for it. One creature goes for Kitty, but it passes through her. It gets back up and makes its way to Scott and Taryn. Another one come at them and Lance stops it by ripping up the ground around it.
Kitty was one of the mutants that Beast chose to take along with him on his retreat to the Great Redwood Forest of California, along with Iceman, Spyke, Wolfsbane, and Sunspot, all of whom were students with less-than-exceptional grades in their nature science class. Originally hatting it, Kitty quickly changes her tune when they get free time. She chooses to go swimming, (even if they boys like jumping in) and later goes on a bit of a hike.
However when Beast ends up being late, her and the other X-kids band together to go find him. They realize he has been captured by Bigfoot trackers, thinking he is indeed bigfoot. With a big help from Rahne, who turns into a werewolf, they are able to free Mr. McCoy and head back to the mansion.
- Hex Factor
- Day of Reckoning I
Kitty is training with the other X-Men in the Danger Room, all of them barely surviving the hard experience. They are all defeated in the simulator and Professor is forced to bolster the X-Men group by joining with the Brotherhood.
The two teams arrived into the city's bay, trying to find the abducted Wolverine.
- Day of reckoning II
The mutants find nothing of interesting, until a sudden card exploded. That reveals Magneto's Acolytes hidden in a tank. The teams clashed, Kitty joining Blob, Avalanche and Toad against Colossus. While Toad ditracted Colossus, Blob tackled him to the ground. Kitty phased him inside a warehouse, which Avalanche brings down with his powers. Later Magneto brings the Sentinel to the surface, when it was hidding in a secret lab that belonged to Bolivar Trask). The mutant-hunting robot captures many of the X-Men, including Rogue, Spike and Beast. Kitty, however, escaped the prison thanks to her phasing powers. The remaining mutants are forced to retreat, now the military forces chasing them.
- Day of Recovery
Scott and Mystique face off, both mad. Jean tries to probe Mystique's mind to find where the professor is, but somehow Mystique's able to block it. Scott threatens her and Mystique tells him that if he ever wants to see Xavier again, then he'll back off. Their group is interrupted by sirens and suddenly they are all surrounded by police cars and helicopters are everywhere.
Everyone scatters. The New Mutants and The Brotherhood take off. Jean is captured and stuffed in a police cruiser. Nightcrawler 'ports into the driver's seat and takes off, but Shadowcat yells for him to wait and he skids to a stop. She phases through the officers that try to catch her and right into the cruiser. Nightcrawler makes one more stop to pick up Bobby then they hightail it out of there. They're almost trapped in a road block, but Jean uses her TK to float the car over. Scott used Jean's Tk To tell everyone to meet at Look-Out Point.
At the lookout, the X-men regroup, but they aren't together long before the Brotherhood show up as well. Mystique tells them that she had nothing to do with Magneto's plan to expose them, but that the public response proves that Xavier was wrong and that humans and mutants will never be able to exist together. Jean bursts in and asks her why she's there, what she wants. Mystique says that she wants her team member back from the military, but she doesn't know where to start looking.
Nick Fury shows up and says that he knows where to start. Mystique wanting to prove her Dominic, snaps her fingers as the Brotherhood move in closer to Furry. In turn Fury snaps his won fingers and everyone is immediately surrounded by his men, 20+. He snaps his fingers again, and they all stand down. Fury hands over a disc with information about where the others are being held. When they ask him why he's helping them he says he has his reasons, but that he can't get involved officially. Fury and his troops disappear as quickly as they arrive.
Storm tells the X-Men that they'll split up in groups, but before she's done speaking Mystique snatches the disc from her hand and says that she's in charge. Storm is furious, the sky darkens and lightening starts flashing everywhere. Mystique tells her to back off and Jean interrupts to remind Storm that Mystique is still holding the Prof somewhere. Storm calms down and Mystique starts barking out orders.
Everyone watches a Jean boosts the Velocity Jet, that was under custody and the rest of them head off to the coordinates that Fury gave them, which turns out to be Area 51, to rescue their team mates.
In Area 51, Mystique shuts down the fence sensors and the others break in too. Storm is standing by in the Velocity for pick up.
Once inside the base the others split up. Bobby and Kitty make there way to shut down the alarms.
Mystique gets interrupted and doesn't turn off the motion sensors. Iceman creates a path across, but once Bobby cuts the wires, he twirls the cutter around his fingers & drops them. The Security System go off anyway. Security seals all exits, but they find Iceman & Shadowcat who are able to find a hatch that leads to the roof. Scott traps mystique down below and Avalanche goes after him, but Jean stops them. Storm shows up and they all escape.
Back at the lookout the X-Men talk over the loss of the Institute and Xavier. Kitty's upset because they can't return home or to school. Scott is upset that he didn't get the info about Xavier's location from Mystique, but Logan tells him that they'll find him on their own.
Ororo tells them all that they have a new world to deal with now, one that fears them and that somehow they have to find a way to teach them that they are the good guys before it's too late.
- The Stuff of Heros
The rest of the X-kids are hiding out in a cave. Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, and Iceman rig up a tiny handheld TV so that everyone can watch the hearings. Rogue and Logan come flying into the cave with the military right behind them.
Logan wants to fight, but Cyclops stops him. He has Iceman ice up the cave entrance as they argue about what to do. Logan says that the military is now the enemy, they have to fight. Cyclops says that they're not, and that the X-Men are supposed to be heroes. Wolverine finally says that if Cyclops wants to take charge, then they're on their own and he takes off. The X-Kids disable the choppers without hurting anyone and take off in the X-Jet.
The kids pick up coverage of the hearings on the jet and find out that Juggernaut is on the loose.
The X-Men finally arrive at the dam and go head to head with Juggernaut. Shadowcat jumps on top of him and phases him into the dam and leaves him partially trapped. Juggernaut busts his way out of the dam wall. Cyclops blasts him full force with his beams and knocks the helmet off of his head. But he himself gets caught. All three of the boys rush him and try to help, Juggernaut swats them all off. Shadowcat and Rogue phase up behind him and Kitty boosts Rogue up onto his shoulders.
Juggernaut looses hold of Cyclops and Nightcrawler ports him to safety as Rogue continues to absorb his powers. Finally the two of them collapse. They go head to head, but Juggernaut can't touch Rogue. She lifts him up over her head and throws him from the top of the dam. In mid flight, Iceman freezes him into a huge block of Ice. Then they lose track of him.
The X-Men find Xavier locked up in Juggernaut's holding tank. Later, the President gives a speech saying that the X-Men have been cleared of all charges and that the real villain behind the Sentinel fiasco, Trask, has been jailed. He says that everyone should be more open minded about mutants and that from now on they should be free of any prosecution.
The X-Men are now living underground beneath the ruins of the mansion. Kitty is sneaking a midnight snack when Kurt ports in and catches her drinking straight from the milk carton. As they argue over it, Kitty sees intruders on the monitors. They port upstairs to take care of them before the alarms wake everyone up. Kitty gets to them first and she's startled by their monster like appearance. Kitty and Kurt take them out and it turns out that it's just Mal Robson, Keith Kcid and some other high school jock, all in masks. They were been spray painting graffiti everywhere. They run off saying nobody wants the mutants around. Kitty tells Kurt it was a lot easier when only the Brotherhood hated them.
Xavier mentally wakes up the rest of the X-kids and calls the older kids into a meeting. All of the students are now crowded into a few rooms in the sub floors. At the meeting Xavier tells them that they're going to be allowed back to school for one day as long as they do not use their powers. That night the school board is holding a meeting to vote on whether or not to ban mutants from the schools permanently.
Kitty tells him that she's afraid to go back, that they don't fit in there anymore. Xavier tells her that they now have a chance to go back and be appreciated for everything they are. They see the morning paper calling mutants monsters and Spyke gets angry. Nightcrawler starts reading the article and realizes that his identity is still "unknown". Scott tells him that it's only a matter of time before everyone realizes who he really is since he lives at the Institute. Xavier tells them all that it's an opportunity for them to set an example and he wants them all to be at the meeting that night.
At school the rest of the students gawk and taunt the X-Men as they file into school. Kurt slowly distances himself from the others and when Kitty looks back and realizes she turns away mad.
Duncan and some of his friends start pushing Scott around trying to get him to use his powers so he'll be expelled. Kitty and Rogue show up to defend Scott and scare off Duncan and company. As they're leaving Kitty sees Kurt hiding behind a building. He was there the whole time but didn't step up to help Scott. He turns to leave, but some other kids are there and ask him if he isn't friends with the mutants. He tells them that he "used to be" and tries to get away, but Kitty and Rogue are right there behind him and heard the whole thing. Kitty tells him thanks, but Kurt rambles on about having to be somewhere and runs off.
The Brotherhood and Duncan team up and start a fight with the other X-kids in the parking lot outside. Scott tells the others that they are not to use their powers, no matter what. So the X-kids take a beating and do their best to get out of harm's way. Lance starts to bring down the entire auditorium.
The Brotherhood steps it up a notch and the X-Men are finally forced to use their powers to save the innocent bystanders. Kurt finally steps in to help and when the X-Men regroup the Brotherhood runs off. The X-Men stand in front of the auditorium and look sadly at the destroyed parking lot.
Kitty tells Kurt to take off his hoolwatch, & he, slightly annoyed cautions her "One step at a time."
Next morning, Xavier calls everyone to another meeting. Logan asked if they are on their way to a funeral as everyone walks by with sadden faces. He tells them that the board voted to allow them back into school. The kids aren't too happy about going back, but Xavier tells them that it's not only an honor for them to be taking the first step in this "new world", but it's also their responsibility for the mutants yet too come. He tells them how proud he is of them, and that no matter what, the X-Men will endure.
Everyone is heading off to school and as Kitty rushes to catch up to them she phases through the Beast and loses her toothbrush inside. She says sorry as she reaches back into his chest to remove it while running to catch up with the others saying not to leave without her.
Later, after Rogue confronts Gambit, Kitty shows up and asks Rogue if he was one of Magneto's new guys. Rogue confirms this and that she's suspicious about him by saying that he's up to something. Kitty wants to go tell Scott about Gambit, but Rogue tells her that there's no time and drags her off while Kitty worries about missing sixth period.
Rogue and Kitty make it to the Brotherhood house just as the boys take off into Lance's jeep. Kitty makes a snide comment about Lance by saying he can't stay out of trouble for one day. They follow the Brotherhood boys by phasing in and out of various vehicles that are heading the same direction.Later, Kitty phases through the truck and saves Pietro just in time as the vehicle plummets down the mountain and explodes. Pietro tells her thanks but that she almost blew it and calls her a slowpoke, then he takes off speeding away. Blob and Toad load the unconscious Avalanche up into the jeep and take off. Rogue tries to stop them with Avalanche's power, but Kitty tells her it's no use that they're all gone while calling Pietro a jerk and that she'll get him next time. The girls are caught by the military officers, but the leader tells them that not everyone hates mutants and that he knows they helped and they're free to go, suprising them both. He would have offered them a ride home but they were also stranded until another unit arrives to pick them up. Rogue declines their offer saying that her and Kitty will find their own way home. But Kitty sternly says that they were going to find a phone and call Scott.
Back at the Institute, Kitty and Rogue explain the situation by saying that everything happened so fast and it kinda blew up in their faces as they went along with it. Xavier tells the girls that they can't deal with every problem that comes along, that they have their own lives to lead. Scott tells them that they've also got detention on Saturday for skipping out on sixth period. Kitty storms off angrily away saying that she knew this was going to happen.
- Ascension II
During Apocalypse master plan, Kitty and her team (consisting of Sunspot, Scarlet Witch, Havok and Angel) went to Mexico, to fight against Magneto, who had become Apocalypse Horsemen. With his magnetic powers, magneto rebuilt a Sentinel robot, and used it against the mutants. The team was barely able to hold their own against both the Sentinel and the dominated Master of Magnetism. That until the rest of The Brotherhood appeared. They hold their ground until Apocalypse was succesfully defeated.
The FutureWhen Charles Xavier was under Apocalypse's control, he was able to scan the mind of Apocalypse. In the possible future, Xavier saw adult versions of the X-Men including Shadowcat. She's shown to be wearing a black X-Men uniform, with a black long-sleeved top that shows a couple inches of her mid-drift, matching black pants, and light purple combat boots. She also has gold platlets with the "X" logo on both of her shoulders, two gold arm gauntlets, a gold ulitity belt also bearing the "X" logo, and a gold utility pouch strapped to her right thigh. Also, Shadowcat has a noticeably short bob hairstyle, no longer sporting her ponytail as she did in her teen years. Kitty would've continued her romantic relationship with Avalanche and are believe to still be together in the future.
Kitty first meet Lance when she accidentally fell onto him when she tried to get out of her locker because two mean girls pushed her into her locker. When he figured she had powers like him, he tried and (after she had a horrible day) convinced her to sneak into the office so he can steal test results, but when she figured out he was just using her she tried to leave, resulting in the two butting heads and Lance attempting to crush her (and her parents and Jean, who'd arrived to save Kitty) underneath the school, but was unsucessful.
Later, after the two fought several times, Lance tried to get her to date him following Magneto's disapearance. She rejected him at first, but began warming up to him after he saved her life from some debris (which he actually caused). Lance once tried to join the X-Men, mostly because he wanted to get close to her, but he found it difficult to keep up with the harder training regime of the X-Men and couldn't resist goofing off and antagonizing Scott by deliberately screwing up sessions, though Kitty seemed to find it amusing (and became annoyed at Scott when he retaliated). Ultimately he left after dealing with some of the younger student's antics due to becoming fatigued with the Institute's harder expectations and general insanity, but the two began dating.
However, later when he and the Brotherhood attack a mall with Wanda, the two find themselves on apposing sides, and when he helps Mystique infiltrate the X-Men and blows up the mansion, nearly killing Scott and the New Recruits, she dumps him offscreen, with the two no longer together by the time they return to school following mutants being outed to the world. They permenantly severe ties when he helps Duncan Mathews attack Scott and, with the others, stop the destruction he causes alongside the Brotherhood. The remained enemies for the rest of the series, but Lance demonstrated a softer side during the last season, and eventually came to her rescue when they took on Apocalypse, but its never made clear if they returned to their former closeness.
When Kitty first meet Kurt she was a little scared at first and creeped out by the way he kept teleporting around her and how he looked in his blue form but when he was knocked out by Rouge she was very worried and when he came to she hugged him and said that everything will be ok and eventually she warmed up to him. He once teleported while sleeping around the city on a day he and Kitty were sick and supposed to be in bed. When he woke up, Kitty beat him repeatedly.
Since the first time she met Jean, she started to grow close to her, and look up to her as the sister she never had.
Rogue doesn't like Kitty much. Her bubbly, perky personality annoys her. Rooming with Kitty has proven difficult at times too, but they have learned to live with each other despite their differences. They are seen sometimes hanging out together at school.
