I've been back less than a day, but it seems everyone is asking themselves the same question... What's next? But that's a good thing. Because the difficult choices you've all had to make have given Mutantkind the greatest gift possible... A future. And now it's our job to grow that future into a legacy... One that takes Professor Xavier's dream and builds on it. That protects the world... Protects our own... And protects the people we care about.
~ Kitty Pryde

Katherine Anne Pryde is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. The character first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #129 (January 1980) and was co-created by writer-artist John Byrne and Chris Claremont.

A mutant, Pryde possesses a "phasing" ability which allows her, as well as objects or people she is in physical contact with, to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through, and lets her simulate levitation.

The youngest person to join the X-Men, she was first portrayed as a "kid sister" to many older members of the group, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. She occasionally used the codenames Sprite and Ariel, cycling through several uniforms until settling for her trademark black-and-gold costume. During the miniseries Kitty Pryde and Wolverine, she was renamed Shadowcat, the alias she would be most associated with, and shifted to the more mature depiction of her subsequent appearances. She was one of the main cast of characters depicted in the original Excalibur title. After joining the Guardians of the Galaxy, she assumes her fiancé's superhero identity as the Star-Lord. As of the series Marauders, she is now informally known as Captain Kate Pryde and The Red Queen of the Hellfire Trading Company.

In the X-Men film series, Kitty was portrayed by young actresses in cameos: Sumela Kay in X-Men (2000) and Katie Stuart in X2 (2003). Ellen Page portrayed the character in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). She is ranked #47 in IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.

  • Kitty Pryde / Shadowcat appears as a supporting character in Ultimate Marvel: Earth-2. One of Peter Parker's friends, this version is depicted as Mary Jane Watson's 15-year-old younger cousin who has raised by her aunt Mary Watson since her parents were needlessly killed by William Stryker. Kitty is a young mutant with the abilities to phase through matter and walk through solid objects (she can also fuse with and hide within the shadows of other living beings and subjects with this power), shape-shift into a humanoid Linx with increased strength and speed and communicate with felines (both domestic and wild cats). Like her cousins in their werecat forms, she initially wore no clothes in her Linx form (as noted by Jean Grey, who at one point acknowledged that Kitty was "naked for one week straight" since she first transformed) until she begun wearing a X-Men uniform which adapts to her powers. Later, during an encounter with the Metagirls, Kitty begun seeing herself as a Lesbian like Felicia Hardy (as Kitty noticed Aquaria passionately flirting with her, and Kitty was near to return her feelings). Despite initially insecure, she found acceptance of her sexuality thanks to a therapy she had in Peter's support council.
