I don’t really have a backstory in mind for Kitty here, so I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader…
Enter a world where the X-Men have quietly retired from their years of superheroing. It’s a world where they settled down in the suburbs and lived to ripe old ages.
We look in on them as they hit their 40s. They are, perhaps, soccer moms and dance dads and who knows what else.
Number 4 is… Kitty Pryde. Shadowcat. Sprite. Ex-girlfriend to every X-Man character the current writer felt it convenient for her to date. Also, a hardware hacker, a ninja, pals with a ninja, and an awesome fighter, tactician, and thinker.
