Kitty Pryde Aces Her First Test!

It's time for young Kitty Pryde's first session in the Danger Room!!

This isn't going to be pretty, is it?

Well, that wasn't so hard.

I guess the fact that she beat the room so easily is what encouraged Xavier to rebuild the Danger Room with Shi'ar technology, which was so sophisticated that it eventually became sentient and enslaved by Xavier (because to the modern Marvel writer, there's no crime so unspeakable that Professor X couldn't be guilty of it!).

Of course, this was also the first issue of the Days Of Future Past storyline, which introduced alternate apocalyptic futures to the X-Men's lifestyle. Soon, they would have 15 or 20 members (& villains) bopping about from such alternate timelines, because one universe clearly doesn't have nearly enough story ideas! (I exaggerate, but only slightly...)

In other words. 85% of the things wrong with the X-franchise are Kitty beat the Danger Room with her eyes closed. Thanks, kid!!

From X-Men #141 (1981)
