    She mentionned not wanting to bother Yana in Marauders #1. We tend to treat these characters as walking superpowers but for the sake of storytelling its right that theyre treated as actual people. Kate was in her feelings and didnt want to ask her bff/gf. Its relatable.

    Remember that Krakoa is a giant ass island. Sure, Magik could teleport her into wherever she needs to go, but then she’d also have to get out somehow. Hence, the Illyana’s backpack comment. And they don’t appear to have regular transportation on the island either.

    There's like a hundred fliers, not to mention planes on Krakoa. She'd have access out. Again Magik isnt the only teleporter

    Again, because if she doesn't take the boat and the X-Men can just airdrop the meds from fliers or supersonic planes, what's the point of the team?

    The team still has a purpose. The only thing Kitty's conundrum provides is an excuse to have a ship, which still makes no sense to me. Sailing is slow. With access to a Blackbird, it doesnt make sense why she'd use a boat as the primary form of transportation. Duggan wanted to write a pirate theme book but the premise of this team would still work without that

    "Rule of cool" I guess?

    But...I guess you could kinda make the argument that a fight at see offers more chance of success, or at least less chance of detection, than going into air-space? Or at the least there's more room to work with in a fight? They needs jets on the boat though, you're totally right.

    You want to try and fly a plane into countries with supersonic Stark-tech anti-aircraft missiles, and only one team member being able to fly in the 99% likely event the plane gets shot down?

    But that's a major problem. They're going into heavily armed countries like Russia and Sokovia. And while a ship is every bit as sinkable as a plane is shootable, you have more members geared for swimming than free falling.

    Why they don't use teleporters? Because it would end the plot. There would be zero drama. Teleport to the mutant camp in that country, teleport them out, enemy never knows you're there. Pixie and Magik could run the Marauders by themselves with zero issue. But that's hardly compelling reading material.

    why would a ship be harder to get exploded than a airship? we saw on Hox that they didn't had a way to intercept the aircraft

    Just suspend desbelief a little bit. It's not that hard.

    Unless the Blackbird is literally a Wonder Woman style invisible jet, it can and has been shot down hundreds of times.

    This is going far in a different direction than what I was originally posing which was Kitty being able to fly out of Krakoa. I doubt anyone on the island is looking to shoot her down if they see her airborne

    I mean, someone could fly her out. She could go back to New York or whatever. But what would that show, or do for the plot, or accomplish?

    It was a response to Kitty being teleported to the Krakoa mainland. The excuse given was that she'd be stuck there bc she'd have no way of getting out without Illyana porting her out. Nah, any flier could easily get Kitty back to the beach and let her sail on her merry way
