Today in the Krakoan comic books, there is a mystery. Where oh where is Kate Pryde? Well in the last issue of Marauders, we saw her and Lockheed dumped in the sea. And in this Marauders… she still hasn't turned up. Not for Callisto and Bishop…
And not for the Quiet Council.
The answer, sadly, is not that she's jumped over to X-Men/Fantastic Four, where she's looking less like a pirate, with her hair down, no nose injury and she's covering her tattoos with gloves. Suitable for remembering a time from the eighties…
You know, she's called Kate now, Erik? Kitty is for those days long gone, such as with Claremont and Bognadove in the comic being referenced.
And now reprised. Okay, Franklin is probably allowed to call her Kitty, still.
Still in the red and black. Though what Franklin from then…
…will make of the (SPOILERS) fate of Lockheed, is unknown.
Let alone what has happened to Kitty Pryde – though in what world is she actually able to drown? And as for the old Fantastic Four Vs X-Me…looks like X-Men/Fantastic Four has a revival for one of their cliffhangers as well. And while the Beast may be ignoring Krakoan law in X-Force, in Savage Avengers #0, Doctor Strange has ways and means around that…
Also if no humans are allowed on Krakoa, how will they cope with a certain stowaway?
Can Valeria find a way to float in the air as well?
