History: Kitty was born in Deerfield, Illinois. When she was 13 years old, she began getting headaches which were the result of her mutant powers starting to manifest. Both the Hellfire Club and Professor X pursued Kitty to get her to join their cause. Kitty did not like Emma Frost or her attitude which made Kitty feel uncomfortable around her. It was an easy decision for Kitty to go with Xavier and the few X-Men accompanying him. One of the X-Men in that group was Storm, and they quickly became friends. Storm told Kitty about herself and about what the X-Men fought for.
The X-Men were abruptly attacked by mercenaries sent by Emma Frost. The X-Men battled them and defeated them easily, but Emma used her telepathy to freeze everyone. Kitty was able to slip away during the confusion and was able to contact Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Nightcrawler. They arrived soon after and Kitty helped them rescue the captured X-Men.
When Kitty's parents got worried about their daughter who had been missing for a day, Xavier brought her back to her furious parents. Kitty's parents would not allow their daughter to join Xavier's school and hated him for the danger they felt he represented to their daughter. Jean then erased their memories and replaced them with false ones, thus changing their perception of Professor Xavier. Kitty was then allowed to join the team, and became the youngest X-Man ever.
Kitty quickly found herself in the role of being Wolverine’s sidekick and had a number of adventures with the X-Men (including one where she got to meet her idol, Dazzler). One such “adventure” however, was not exactly hers to happen. Rachel Summers and the Kitty Pryde of an alternate future swapped her mind with that of her future self, in an effort to prevent the assassination of Senator Robert Kelly and alter their horrible timeline. They failed. Rachel did the only thing she could to help the younger incarnation of her friend and was able to shunt her to the Nextgen timeline. Shortly after her arrival, Rachel Summers and Doug Ramsey claimed official guardianship of her, falsifying a history that marked her as a distant cousin of the in-reality Prydes.
Since arriving in the 2000’s, Kitty has had a lot of catching up to do, not the least of which included meeting her older self and her older self’s son. At times, it’s still rather obvious that she’s from the 1980’s. But she has also embraced certain aspects of the modern world, such as World of Warcraft, though Doug Ramsey has limited her access to the program. Kitty has gone on several field missions of varying degrees of success, and many of the students look to her for her experience. Rachel Summers and Doug Ramsey claimed
Kitty briefly dated a young man from outside the Institute named Peter, even after accidentally revealing her mutant nature to him. The occasional stresses of dating a part-time super-hero, however, proved to be too much and they broke up.
Powers: Kitty possesses the ability to “phase” through solid matter by shifting her atoms through the spaces between the atoms of the object through which she is moving. Kitty can phase her clothing along with herself, and through practice has learned to phase other objects and people without harm to them. For all intents and purposes, Kitty is intangible whilst phasing, however she is still vulnerable to psionic or mystical attacks. Certain forms of energy can also disrupt her phased state.
