Despite this and the High Evolutionary 's apparent ability to retrieve the bullet and Kitty, Magneto chose to focus on regaining his powers, secretly keeping tabs on the bullet until his decision to draw it back to Earth. During her time trapped inside the bullet, Kitty keeps herself and the bullet phased to avoid collisions with any inhabited objects in its path. Magneto brings Kitty Pryde safely down to Earth, with the help of Doctor Strangeby cracking the bullet in two and levitating Kitty to the ground.
When she and Colossus try to touch, it is revealed that she is trapped in her intangible form, unable to speak, and the X-Men place her in a protective chamber similar to the one used for her following the events of the Mutant Massacre. While disgusted at Emma's intentions, Kitty offers a compromise. Due to her current ghost state, she is the perfect tool for making Shaw disappear. During the conflict between the Breakworlder Kr'uun and the X-Men, Kitty is slain and resurrected by Kr'uun's mate in an alien ritual, which results in her powers returning to normal.
X-MenKitty does not take a side, but instead decides to stay at the school to work with the students. Kitty and the time-displaced X-Men team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy and succeed in rescuing Jean from the Shiar. At the conclusion of the storyline, Kitty begins a long-distance, flirtatious relationship with Starlord, Peter Quill. At one point, Quill gets captured during one of their dates and she has no option but to go to his rescue, despite her fear of space as a result of her being trapped on the giant space bullet.

Storm announces to Kitty that she intends to step down as leader of the X-Men due to the guilt that she feels for leading the X-Men to war and offers Kitty her position. After touring X-Haven and seeing how much things have changed and how much things need to change for the better, Kitty agrees to lead the X-Men as long as Storm remains on the team. Her next act is to relocate the mansion from Limbo to Central Park, New York so the X-Men can refocus on being part of the world instead of fearing it under the belief that if the X-Men truly are to be seen as heroes, then they need to actually live in the world that they are trying to save instead of constantly worrying about their own survival.
Kitty learns first hand how hard it is to balance leading the X-Men as well as managing the mansion when there are many political factors trying to deliberately get in the way of the X-Men. She also begins to have awkward one-on-one moments with Colossus; they try to remain friends, but given their long history their interactions swiftly become complicated. Kitty's first case as field leader of the X-Men sees her and her team taking on a new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
After discovering that an outspoken anti-mutant politician brainwashed this new Brotherhood to work for her to publicly discredit mutants, Kitty threatened to expose her if she continued exploiting mutants for her own personal gain. This did not sit well with Marvel Comics' editor-in-chief at the time, Jim Shooterwho disapproved of the suggestion that a nineteen-year-old boy was sleeping with a fourteen-year-old girl.
Kitty, aware of the taboo of their romantic relationship, made the plea that if she were older it would not be a problem, but Colossus refused—offering only a passionate kiss—saying "However, little one, you are not older".
This did not stop the relationship from continuing, as the two were spotted once again passionately kissing in an apparent formalization of their romantic involvement. For Colossus, this infatuation furthered his doubts of his feelings for Kitty due to his jealousy of her friendship with Doug Ramsey and led to a passionate, albeit brief romantic relationship with Zsaji.
After Zsaji's death, Colossus found he no longer had romantic feelings for Kitty, and upon returning to Earth, he would break up with her. While a member of Excalibur, Kitty exploited her closeness with Colossus after he joined the Acolytes by luring him to Muir Island under the pretense of wanting to join him on Avalon.
The X-Men's Colossus & Kitty Pryde's Wedding Ends in [SPOILER]
In reality, it was a ruse to allow Professor X to heal a head injury Colossus had suffered which they assumed had led to his defection. Kitty disliked betraying him, but went along with the ruse and was forgiven for her part in it.
The two talked about their past and decided to become close friends, with Colossus carefully watching over her romantic relationship with Wisdom.
After Kitty and Wisdom's romantic relationship ends, she rejoins the X-Men with Colossus and Nightcrawler, and the two remain close. Kitty was not among the team when Colossus sacrificed himself to cure the Legacy Virusbut she returned to claim his ashes and spread them in his homeland. Cytorrak accepts on the terms that one of them become his new avatar, which Colossus takes to prevent his sister from carrying the burden. Upon realizing continued shared attraction, Colossus stated his belief that they should only proceed if it was toward the direction of marriage.
In response Kitty conceded that she needed time to think about it. The issue ends with the two walking off together alone while Colossus tells Kitty that his home is wherever she is, their relationship renewed. After the Avengers vs. His plan to join Kitty and Star-Lord would not start until a year later when he created a crossover event called "The Trial of Jean Grey" where he revisited the event of the original Phoenix Saga with the original X-Men team who he had brought into the present.
Kitty, who was already interested in still seeing him, accepted the gift and kissed him on the cheek. He, along with Bendis and editor Mike Marts who edited both franchiseswould start developing the relationship for a year before doing another crossover event that would be completely focused on them.
Kitty got real with her and demanded to know what her feelings were about her and Piotr's marriage. Illyana and Kitty were hinted to have been romantically involved in their early days, so it is guaranteed that every single queer person reading that comic gasped audibly in anticipation of Illyana's response.
Illyana reluctantly admitted that she thought the marriage was a terrible idea. Not surprisingly, that revelation kind of brought down the vibe, so the two of them said goodnight, laughing the conversation off. Now hopefully Illyana and Kitty finally get married instead. Gold has been going for more than a couple of years, but 30 was by far the most enjoyable issue.
The art, by David Marquez, with colors by Matthew Wilson, really seemed to fit perfectly. Their versions of Storm, Nightcrawler, and Illyana were some of the highlights of the story.
The look on Colossus' face was adequately cringe-inducing throughout the last half of the book.
Some might say there was no villain for X-Men: Gold 30, but there most definitely was: Illyana, who is one of the very best villains. She was also the hero, though, and put a stop to an ill-advised marriage, which is exactly what best friends ex-girlfriends? The relationship dynamics, while still off, read better in this issue than they have through the rest of the issues in this run combined. For instance, Kitty enjoyed a really sweet moment with her former ballet teacher and mentor, Stevie Hunter, currently a congresswoman, who comes back to help her prepare for the wedding.
When she breaks up with Colossus, her explanations are non-existent, and it's clear she acted impulsively. That's part of the fun of the issue — long-time X-Men fans have no doubt missed watching the anxious, impulsive Kitty of days past. The biggest problem with the series is that it has consistently neglected several major story arcs of character development. Rachel Summers is completely miscast in the book, from taking a code name that doesn't fit her character to dating Nightcrawler to barely interacting with Kitty at all despite a long history of them as best friends, often implied to be something more.
Once you establish that they are married in the future, then obviously you're going to start looking at things with an eye towards them ultimately ending up with each other. That makes otherwise innocuous moments like later in the issue stand out Still, due to her age, Byrne and Claremont continued to play their relationship more of a crush by Kitty and an embarrassed older guy dealing with the crush by the younger girl, like when she kissed Colossus under the mistletoe in Uncanny X-Men Byrne's blushing Colossus is adorable.
Things changed on the X-Men's long mission into space in the s where they were all nearly killed by being infected by Brood eggs. There was a real sense of dread on their mission and Kitty tried to distract herself by effectively throwing herself on Colossus. The two shared their first kiss
