MARVEL: Art of War




Wanted List
Character Directory
Friending Button

The year is 1963.

It is a time in history like no other. There are those who feel that they are standing on the dawn of a golden age while others feel that the threat of nuclear war will tear the nation apart. The fire of the Civil Rights Movement is beginning to blaze with men and women standing up against oppression at home, as costumed superheroes and criminals begin to make their presence known.

Against this backdrop of conflict and change, a man named Charles Xavier is searching for others of his kind.

Xavier sees the turmoil ahead. He believes that a war against mutants may soon be coming--he sees it in the reaction of Americans to the threat of the bomb and the fear of mutation. His friend, Erik Lehnsherr, argues that violence should be met with violence, that mutants should strike first and enslave those who would harm them. But Xavier is not a man quick to anger and instead, he is preparing a sanctuary for those who would band together for protection. It is not children that he seeks but men and women--in case the battle is brought to their front door.

As movements march on and wars erupt, Xavier’s dream turns from fantasy to necessity. Where will it lead mutantkind?

I thought people might be interested in this...

I didn't really get into my reasons as such, I used scans as evidence, but awesome_women's recent theme was "Woman you'd take into a fight" and I chose Kitty Pryde. Who is, as always, awesome.

Post is over thisaway

Also, I had totally forgotten I was a member until I was looking for something else entirely and then was like, "Oh, hey, a Kitty Pryde community, I should join it--oh." Oops

The Cat is Back, Where's the Rejoicing?!

I can't believe no one has posted here about Kitty's return in the comics!

What do you think of how it was done? Who else kinda tilted his or her head upon realizing Kitty's current state, at the end, and wondered if there wasn't a lovely older story-line with the solution to it...glaring all in the face? Share!

(no subject)

Hey guys! Been a while since there's been postage (Meaning since someone's posted, not since there've been stamps...). Anyway, thought I'd give y'all an update on my fanfic100 table. As you might remember, I've been assigned Pryde/Wisdom for my fic subjects and am all the way to fic number 77. Here's the table if y'all want to read. :) Enjoy!

Current Kitty books: what does every think?

First off X-men Forever: What was up with that jump to the leather costume which they seemed to have on the cover for...2 issues running? without it showing up, then she just jumped to it. Did I miss something?
Obviously from my above comment, I am quite uncertain about this book, but the next two storylines seem to be concerning kitty and pitor and then Kitty, Pitor and Illyana... So I'm gonna hang around. Also this most recent issue seems to have better art.

How about the X-men Misfits manga?
I was highly amused by it, just for amusing pseudo-harem/pseudo practically yaoi-ness of it. Kitty herself wasn't really anything like the Kitty Pryde in the Marvel Comics IMO, but I was still amused. Plus we get Kitty with cat ears sometimes so that's a yeah in my book. Oh! And she wears biking pads occasionally to protect her if she phases through the floor. I liked that idea and had not seen it in any of the "mainstream" Marvel books.

Has Kitty show up in Ultimate Spider-man again? I rather liked her Ultimate character there, less in the Ultimate X-men stuff.

Oh! And if anyone has not been watching Wolverine and the X-men; Kitty plays a supporting part there, but she's pretty kick-ass there. She seems like a slightly grown-up version of Kitty's character in X-men Evolution.

So thoughts from other Kitty fans?
x-men: fan of all seven

Kitty's Return--Looking Imminent!

What? Can it be this has not been mentioned here yet?!

In Secret Invasion: Dark Reign #1, Emma begins to receive messages in her dreams--and she, at least, thinks they're from Kitty!

Could it, oh, could it be? Anyone else read this? Anyone else plan to now follow this story line just to find out? (Anyone want me to list the next two comics Secret Invasion #1 says continue the story line?)

What do YOU think?
