Kitty Pryde

Kitty Pryde joined the X-Men and became acquainted with the preexisting and to come members of the team. Wolverine chose to leave the group after being confronted by Cyclops over his romantic interest in Jean Grey. She was in a Danger Room training simulation with Nightcrawler and Colossus when he planned to depart. During their training, she was held by an arm from the Danger Room's simulation, which prompted her to ask for aid in escaping by Nightcrawler. She clarified to him that she would land on her face if she used her own powers, before learning that Logan was behind controlling the drone. He reasoned it as his way of saying goodbye, though she did not take kindly to this as she screamed for him to let her and the others go. The Xavier Mansion had an explosion soon after, which started and triggered the disbanding of the X-Men. Once the X-Men were disbanded, she moved in with her parents. During the time that proceeded, Kitty planned to depart to Genosha. However, she did not realize that Wolverine had started recruiting the X-Men back into the group. She was the third person he located, thanks to Kitty having previously told Iceman where she would be going.

She gladly rejoined the team and participated in trying to stop Senator Kelly from being assassinated, an event that made use of her powers as she phased the Blackbird through the building he was in. Once the team stopped the assassination, Kitty watched with the others a broadcast that only furthered hatred for mutants and the wish that they would be forced to register. When Emma Frost arrived at the Xavier Mansion with the intentions to join the team, Wolverine brought her in with Beast and Iceman, and informed the three of her occupation as a teacher at the Massachusetts Academy. In response, Kitty dismissingly stated that she had never heard of it. Emma read the mind of Wolverine and learned that Cerebro's repairs were nearly completed, which prompted her to tell him to call her as she departed. Prior to leaving, Iceman tried to open the door for her. Kitty reminded him that she was a telepath and that she knew what he was thinking.
