Kitty Pryde is a mutant who was trained by Magneto and has a strange connection to the X-Men. She possesses some uncanny powers which she uses to battle villains. Kitty is introduced in the first issue of the uncanny x-men where she is badly injured after a battle between the X-Men and Magneto's Mutant terrorist group known as the Sentinel. She is taken to an island where she meets Storm, who is a childhood friend.
Kitty is brainwashed and becomes a part of the Sentinel's terrorist group. The evil doctor known as Beast has a plan for her, which involves having her swallowed by the water for experimental surgery, but she resists and fights through some of her kidnappers. After some time, Kitty is rescued by the X-Men and she makes a mysterious connection to the X-Men that continues to be explored throughout the years.
Kitty Pryde has been featured in a wide variety of different x-men comics over the years. Some of her earliest appearances can be found in the Uncanny X-Men series where she is a member of the primary team. In this comic, she is called Forge. She is a valued member of the team until a certain point, when she is bitten by a feral dog and becomes a vampire. Kitty's connection with the uncanny xmen became much more clear when she went on a mission with Cyclops and Jean Grey to rescue Jean's unborn child. While the others fight off a pack of Sentinel robots, Kitty engages the evil telepath scheme of Doctor Drakken.
Kitty's connection with the uncanny x-men was further developed when she was brainwashed by the enemy known as Magneto. The evil doctor made Kitty believe that she was a genetic experiment, thus losing her ability to naturally heal. Kitty then devoted her life to becoming a devoted fan of the x-men, studying the ways of the deadly mutant. She also developed an extreme hatred towards humans, viewing them as a danger to herself and to mankind in general. As she studied the science behind Magneto's scheme, she came to the conclusion that the X-Men were in fact a creation of Magneto. She left the field of science and began a personal search for the truth about the X-Men.
Kitty's studies led her to Professor Xavier, who she considered to be her idol. She trained him in the ways of the x-men, and later became a professor herself. However, Kitty's idolization of Cyclops was cut short when she was herself bitten by a radioactive spider. She was left with an incurable condition, which caused her to develop amnesia. As a result, she never learned what Cyclops taught her, and was unfamiliar with his face or name. She developed amnesia due to the radiation poisoning, which left her no way to remember her first appearance on the television screen.
After discovering a piece of Cyclops' remains, she discovered that the radiation was responsible for turning her into the powerful " Emma Frost". This mysterious woman had been in command of the human race for over five thousand years. Kitty's quest for the true cause of her transformation was further fueled when she discovered that Emma Frost had secretly altered Cyclops' memory using a device. The truth about the original creation of the x-men was finally revealed to Kitty, and she was determined to find out who else might have been responsible for it. For this purpose, Kitty formed a team with the young Jean Grey, Rogue, Storm, and Gambit; whom she named the "X-Men".
As the team fought against evil, they encountered many obstacles, such as Magneto, who sought to exploit their emotions for his own ends. It was during this period of their team-building that the concept of the xmen began to take shape. In the comics, Kitty began to go by the name " Kitty ". Throughout her early years with the x-Men, she became an integral member of the team. She consistently demonstrated an ability to emotionally bond with others, which was what helped her develop a strong friendship with Jean Grey, allowing her to rescue him from a Siberian prison where he was incarcerated.
After the original formation of the x-men, Kitty was featured in many different comic series, including a short story in New York Magazine. The series starred both Kitty and Jean Grey, and introduced a new supporting cast of characters. Kitty's role in these various x-men storylines is not particularly clear, but in all appearances she was seen as a very close friend of Jean Grey. Her background as a nurse and a friend of Cyclops made her a natural fit for the role of helping young Cyclops in the classic series. In most of her classic comic appearances, Kitty was shown wearing a blue jumpsuit, and wielding a large, double-bladed axe. It is possible that she used the axe for this purpose during one or more of her first appearances.
