Kitty Pryde and Colossus' Creepy Romantic Backstory | CBR
According to the hologram of Operation Zero Tolerance's Shadowcat sub-file One problem in their relationship was that Kitty was a devout Jew and Colossus. The fan-favorite relationship between X-Men mutants Colossus and Kitty Pryde gets serious in X-Men Gold #20 where the two Marvel heroes. This did not stop the relationship from continuing, as the two were Marko, Shadowcat goes on a mission with Magik and Colossus to.
At the start of Joss Whedon 's run on Astonishing X-Men, Kitty once again rejoins the X-Men, despite having extreme reservations about working with the former White Queengiven their history. This was the primary reason why Frost herself wanted Kitty on the team, as a sort of "safety" should Frost ever revert to type.
Frost reasoned that the person who trusted her least would be most likely to spot such behavior. On one of the team's first missions, Shadowcat discovered Colossus was alive. After some initial awkwardness, Kitty and Colossus resumed dating. They are the two X-Men left to look after the students while the rest of the X-Men leave for Mystique 's home in Mississippi to check up on Rogueduring which they are ambushed by the Marauders.
Kitty and Colossus, meanwhile, attempt to protect the students from a faction of the Marauders led by Exodus.
It is revealed over the course of the story that Kitty, worried of the Destiny Diaries' safety, devised a plan with Cyclops and Emma Frost to hide them and have Emma wipe the location from her mind. The location could only be revealed by a code word spoken to Kitty. The arc concludes with a battle between Iceman and Cannonball against the Marauders for the diaries, during which they are destroyed by Gambit. Kitty fulfilled the role that Emma Frost envisioned, personally taking down Frost and imprisoning her, only to fall under a telepathic delusion created by Hellfire member Perfectionwho claimed to be the true, unreformed Emma Frost.
Under this delusion, Kitty was made to believe that she and Colossus had conceived a child, which was later taken away by the X-Men because its potential mutant abilities were supposedly dangerous.
Kitty reacts in the delusion by attempting to rescue the child from a near-inescapable "box" in the depths of the school, unaware that in reality she is freeing an alien entity, Stuff, who contains the trapped consciousness of Cassandra Nova, the apparent ringleader of this new Hellfire Club.
A newly awakened Cyclops revealed that the new Hellfire Club, including Perfection and Nova, are actually mental projections created by a piece of Cassandra Nova's consciousness; which became lodged in Emma's mind during the X-Men's last confrontation with her, playing on her survivor's guilt over the Genoshan massacre, and utilizing Emma's telepathy to both confound the X-Men and orchestrate her Nova's escape from the Stuff body.
As Cyclops killed the mental projections, Emma tried to force Kitty to kill her to get rid of Nova. Undeterred, Cassandra Nova switched her focus to attempt to transfer her mind to Hisako Ichiki.
It appears that Nova did not succeed, as the team was transported to S. Breakworld[ edit ] As the team prepares to end the confrontation with the Breakworld leader, the team splits up—with Kitty on the team appointed to stop the missile pointed at Earth.
After phasing for a mile into the missile, Kitty finds the center only to discover it empty. The missile is fired, causing Kitty to pass out inside of it as Beast discovers too late that due to its shape, trajectory, and lack of internal circuitry, the Breakworld's weapon is not a missile, but a bullet.
As the bullet hurtles toward Earth, Kitty lies unconscious within it.Astonishing X-Men - Kitty Pryde / Colossus - Last Dawn
Kitty and Emma come to an understanding and reconciliation, Emma stating that she never wanted something like this to happen to her. Kitty then phases the bullet through Earth, but is trapped within. At the end of Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men, Scott Summers mentions that Doctor StrangeReed Richardsand some "top men" tried to save her, but believe she has fused to the bullet, as it continues to hurtle through space.
Whether she is alive or dead is unknown, though the X-Men consider her lost to them. She is briefly mentioned in the aftermath of the Messiah Complex, by Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine, as the three of them discuss "losing her.
The X-Men reluctantly let him stay, remaining wary of him despite his efforts to gain their trust. Meanwhile, inside the bullet, Kitty is revealed to still be alive.
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.
Then, Kitty convinces Peter to steal a powerful artifact called the Black Vortex from his father J'son. Soon, they find themselves being chased by J'son's assassination squad, the Slaughter Lords. After a few of their own friends can't resist the temptation and submit to the Vortex, betray the team, and escape with the artifact; the team splits and Kitty stays in Spartax to help an orphanage.
She is encased in amber after Thane who was allied with J'son freezes the whole planet along with the people inside it; but thanks to her phasing powers, she manages to get out of the amber. Then the Brood attacks Spartax, planning to use every encased person to lay eggs and create an army of Brood to start invading other planets and conquering them.
Kitty feels the only way to stop them is by submitting to the Vortex herself as she's the only one who can resist the cosmic corruption.
She reluctantly submits and becomes a being of unlimited power. After being reminded of the love between her and Peter Quill, she goes back and phases all the amber that encased Spartax, along with the Broods trying to infect the people, and sends them all to another dimension. Kitty doesn't give up the cosmic power but admits to Peter that she is afraid of it.
X-Men's Colossus and Kitty Pryde Are Now Officially Engaged
Peter promises her that he will never abandon her no matter how much she changes. Then, Peter kneels and proposes marriage to Kitty. She, with tears in her eyes, accepts.
After the Guardians regroup and formulate a strategy to defeat her, Kitty manages to partially phase Hala into the ground so the rest of the Guardians can knock her out and separate her from her weapon. Once there, Kitty has a personal reaction upon seeing the prisoners and makes it her mission to liberate everyone there and defeat the captors, as it reminds her of Nazi concentration camps. After Quill gets captured and sentenced to death in an arena battle, Kitty finds and kills one of the Badoon leaders by phasing his heart out of his body.
When fighting starts Kitty woefully realizes that some of her former students are on Tony Stark's side instead of fighting with Captain Marvel. During the battle the Guardians' ship was destroyed, effectively stranding them on Earth. Upon returning to Earth, Kitty hopes to finally regain a semblance of a normal life but ends up approached by Storm, who informs Kitty of everything the X-Men have gone through while Kitty was away.
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.

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.
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.

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. In Star-Lord's book, Peter and Kitty kept using the intergalactic phone to call each other and have what they called "holo-dates".
The many problems in Peter Quill's life started interfering and soon he was captured by a new villain who had put a bounty on Peter's head called Mr. Kitty, who had been witness of Peter being abducted while they were on a date, rushed to Avengers Tower and stole one of Tony Stark's jets to go into space and save Peter.

Kitty and Peter started fighting a lot because of the Vortex; Kitty wants nothing to do with it while Peter wants to have cosmic powers to help him deal with the horrors of outer space.
However, at one point, Peter has the complete freedom to submit to the Vortex and gain cosmic powers. That protects the world. And protects the people we care about.
It was decided by the X-Men who had been subjected to many similar holograms to stand on the belief that they were nothing else than attempts to disturb them. The headaches were a result of Kitty's mutant power emerging. Kitty possesses the ability to pass through solid matter. Suddenly, three Hellfire Knights burst into the shop in an attack led by the White Queen.
The X-Men were overcome and taken as prisoners.

Storm gave Kitty the X-Men's phone number and asked her to summon help. PhoenixCyclops and Nightcrawler arrived in response of the message just in time to save her from Hellfire Club mercenaries.
Phoenix comforted the frightened Kitty. Pryde then helped the X-Men in rescuing their captive colleagues.
