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.
