The art in Voice's link is the art used as the centerfold in the Kitty Pryde book that came with her Marvel Figurines statue.
It's a classic moment. Kitty was always more likable than annoying.
Kitty is great in Jason Aaron's Wolverine & The X-Men, my current favorite X-book. She is co-headmaster of Wolverine's new school for mutants and gets a lot of play and a cute romance with Iceman which seems very natural, unlike the forced romance with Colossus which Joss Whedon never should have reignited.
Bendis's All-New X-Men also has her running herd on the teenaged original X-Men who have traveled through time to the present day, and while it's an okay book I think Bendis is burnt out these days. I'm more interested in the new Uncanny X-Force with more Psylocke and Mohawk Storm, and the all-new, all-female (Kitty, Storm, Psylocke, Jubilee, Rachel Grey, Rogue) X-Men book Brian Wood is going to be writing in a few months.
Given her feelings, she's probably happy that he's dead now.
don't get her as headmistress though; We met her at 13 (13 1/2, to be exact) back in 1980.
But by comic book years she's probably not more than 23, at the most.
(After all, how much older is Franklin Richards now?)
A little young to run a school.
R6: Kitty has a genius level IQ (especially proficient in Math, Physics and Computer Technology), has led missions (often commanding those older than herself); has high level combat training and is proficient in many languages. Plus, she's a mutant herself, looks "normal" and is younger than Storm or Wolverine, which makes her more appealing to younger students
All factors making her seemingly qualified to run a school for mutants.
R6, is a jerk!
Love how Joss used that scene in Astonishing X Men. And Bendis used an homage to it in his current Ultimate Comics Spider-Man run too.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
