I always feel bad for poor Illyana I think she just keeps pining away for Kitty and hoping that Kitty will finally notice that Illyana is her true love. (hehe, I love the pure drama of it and the reaction on Colossus' face when he sees his ex dating his sister!)
    It was really shitty how Kitty did not comment at all on Magik, Karma and Rachel's disappearances (I know she said the NM were gone but that was without any sort of emotional investment). As I said, Kitty's entire world revolves around Colossus now and it makes her look like callous and selfish because all these writers just skim Wikipedia for characterization. Having her relinquish leadership of the X-Men and going off to look for her lost friends because she feels responsibility (and then coming back for the final Disassembled fight) would've been a much better way to write her off than humiliating her to make Jean look good.

    Without a doubt it was noticed. I can't speak to the rationale of her not noting that all most of the New Mutants (her good friends) were MIA, but her brief recap of the events of Extermination and not mentioning Rachel show how little she cares for others at the moment. I don't think she cares about anyone, herself included. I hope they can salvage her back to being a smart, fun, and determined woman who protects her friends fiercely.

    How was Kitty humilated to make Jean look good? Jean was written horribly ande made to be incompetent in Disasembled. Kitty was taken off the table for most of that arc and surprisingly fared better than she had been throughout Gold

    Duggan wrote one of the best Kittys of the last 20 years in his A+X story.

    I don’t think they’ll be getting back together, but let’s be honest with ourselves, that was a dope story.

    I really wish she would go away for a while. Not liking that she will continue to lead. Hopefully Duggan can at least turn around some of the damage that Guggs did on her bc she hasnt recovered yet

    I'm really happy for Kitty's future. She's got a decent costume again, her iconic ponytail, Lockheed. I even like that she's the leader really. XMG portrayed it badly by throwing other characters under the bus but in theory Kitty leading isn't a bad thing.

    I was really glad Lockheed is back. Lockheed was one of the things that made Kitty so iconic as Shadowcat. I like that she is going to use blades, it will be interesting to see how she brings swords and phasing together in a fight.

    I agree. I think/hope Marauders will be good for Kitty. Very thankful they finally got rid of that awful costume/design as well. Was super excited to see the return of the ponytail, and I love the scarf they gave her.

    Maybe Lockheed's wife is the one who busted her homewrecker face up.
