To Kitty Pryde, you X-Men!
Okay, that didn’t quite have the ring of Professor X’s iconic rallying cry. However, that looks to be the new mutant status quo that Marvel is setting up after the eventful events of Inhumans Vs. X-Men. There’s no question that that dark chapter in X-Men history has left the merry band of mutants in a very difficult and not necessarily popular place. However, for longtime fans awaiting the return to prominence for this franchise, it was the springboard into what will be a slew of new X-titles. It all begins here with X-Men Prime #1 (no relation to the one-shot of similar name after the original “Age of Apocalypse” saga).
Kitty Pryde is one of the most beloved X-Men characters of all-time. She’s for the most part been able to stay squeakier and cleaner than many of the other X-Men in the past few years. Since Kitty missed all the hubbub with that pesky war of Emma Frost’s recently, Kitty is visited by Storm and is asked to lead the X-Men back into good graces of the world. It’s a tall order. It’s a nice bit of coming full circle and suddenly the new X-Men status quo is going to resemble a little of what the Ultimate Universe’s version was for a little while there after the awful happenings of Ultimatum. Kitty will be charged with leading the mutant cause in a world that fears them and many enemies (new, old, you name ’em) will be amping up.
How will Kitty Pryde begin the path of progress and Resurrxion for some of Marvel’s most important characters and properties? You can find out in X-Men Prime #1 . Get to the shop early or else do as Rogue would suggest, “Pull it or lose it, Sugar.”
