What’s that you say, X-Fans? You really enjoyed the wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus, who started dating when Kitty was 13 years old, but really wish Marvel would explore further back in Kitty’s romantic history? Well, true believers, Marvel has heard your demands, and they have an answer: X-Men Gold Annual #2. Written by Seanan McGuire and Marco Failla, the 40-page annual promises to “reveal the secrets” of a young Kitty’s Summer camp hijinks and teen mutant angst, though depending on how much earlier than Uncanny X-Men #129 this is set, shouldn’t that be pre-teen angst?
And also: ummmmm.
Maybe Marvel is doing a little selective retconning.
While we’re on the subject, we’d be remiss in not mentioning the discrepancies in Marvel’s view of Kitty’s most important boyfriends, those being Colossus, Pete Wisdom, and Star-Lord, vs her co-creator Chris Claremont‘s views as denoted in the X-Men Wedding Special.
