When she came up with the name she was musing that she wasn't a "Kitten" anymore--Storm's nickname or her--but a "cat." All grown up. As 14 year olds tend to think they are. Especially those that have been to the far side of the Universe and helped save the world.

She's never been a Kat always a Kitty. In the 30 years later Days of Future Past story she was Kate.
That sounds very Claremontian.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I've been out of Marvel for a long time, so I just want to ask one quick question. Is Iceman stuck in his ice form these days? I haven't seen him outside of it in All New X-Men, and there was an implication that something had happened to him.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

He's not stuck in his ice form...I believe it's been admitted by Bendis or Immonen that Bobby's mainly in his ice form to distinguish him from his younger self. When Kitty and Bobby when on their date in Wolverine and the X-Men I think a couple issues back, he was in his normal human appearance.

Speaking of which, coming back to Marvel to find Kitty and Bobby dating is hella awkward. She really likes her older men, doesn't she?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yeah she does At least this time she's an adult when she's dating Pitor and Kitty ended their relationship during "Avengers Vs X-Men". JuggerColossus basically almost lost control and nearly hit or punched Kitty while visiting her at the school. I forgot what happened now...but she basically was done with him after that.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Did you all know that Kitty Pryde was a real person?

John Byrne went to artschool with her. He asked her permission. Everything was above board. However, in recent days, the "real" Kitty found it impossible to deal with how infamous and invasive her namesake had become, afterwhich she has changed her name to to K.D. Pryde.

It's like from Office space "I WAS JOHN BOLTON FIRST!!!"

(Colossus took his steel dong out this week for a good polish from one of his team-mates on X-Force. So he's moved on to.)

Oh that's different. Should I blame The Last Stand?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Nope. Jason Aaron..but I suppose he was a bit inspired by the film. Bobby and Kitty started dating in "Wolverine and the X-Men" after Bobby surprised her by kissing her spontaneously in the first issue I believe.

I read Age of Ultron #1. Thought it was pretty decent for a first issue. Issue two already is slated for next week. The Hitch artwork seemed off a bit than usual. Not really much else to comment on since this was only the first issue. Interesting that Bendis is using Clint as main character in this as well.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Hawkeye is unkillable because he's standing next to Thor. I'm not saying that he's standing behind Thor, but when the villain is aiming his death ray, that villain, lets say a Hydra ground pounder, has to hit Thor a hundred times to scratch him, and maybe after he's shot thor a hundred times, he'll feel secure in position enough to waste a phaser zap on the friking Carnie throwing sticks at him with a rubber band.

Ditto for Black Widow.

It seems like Hawkeye is getting to be a whole lot more prominent than I ever remember him being. That could be because the average person walking down the street now knows who he is after Avengers made all the money in the world. I'm not complaining, though. Clint is a cool character, and the Hawkeye book has just been an absolute blast every issue.

I thought they were not dating because they decided on their actual date it was better just to be friends?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

What I'm still trying to figure out with Kitty Pryde is - how old is she supposed to be now? I mean I get that she's an "adult" now- but let's face it, Kitty was "Acting" like an adult for a loooong time now. Heck during a good part of Excalibur she was still technically a minor - there was even a subplot during the aftermath of Fall of the Mutants when she was basically foster'd to Courtney Ross that she still had to go to school and even went to this posh boarding school. And that was in the mid-late 80s.

So let's assume that she was maaaaaaybe 17-18 by the 90s - since by the end of the 90s she was doing stuff for SHIELD and was "off to college".

Now let's look at Spider-Man... presumably he's now sorta being written as being a tad more mature - but really only because Doc Ock is in his body - but I'm sure he's still in his late 20s - not quite 30 yet - since supposedly even Tony Stark is in his 30s - probably late 30s but not yet 40. Now Spider-Man's been basically in his 20s for almost 40 years - since the only time he really "aged" was when he went to college and met Harry Osborn and Gwen Stacy. And then slightly when he married Mary Jane. Even though the marriage was "Retconned" out of existance it's still accepted that the two of them spent "years" together, long enough for them to be an accepted 'thing'.

So this is my question... why is Kitty Pryde allowed to age and Peter Parker isn't? I'm sure if Kitty Pryde went up to Peter Parker - (not Octo-Pete) and started to flirt with him - I'm sure Pete's thought bubble would be like "She's legal but man why do I feel like a dirty old man?" Considering he's also dated Ms. Marvel - who is certainly past 30 given her experience in the military and it wasn't like he was dating an 'older woman' so they presumably felt they were close enough in age. Not that age would ever really be an issue with super heroes - but let's face it, Carol Danvers was working for NASA when Peter Parker was still in high school or college.

So in conclusion - Peter Parker and Kitty Pryde - Marvel's perma-kids.
