Just a small correction: this issue was X-Men #5, not #6 (which will be part 7 of the Battle of the Atom event).

Anyway, the story is interesting. And as much as I despise Kitty, she does have a point this time. I guess she'll be the one leaving Storm's team after Battle of the Atom is over (maybe Rachel will leave, too). If so, I hope she goes to Cyclops's team - and that he puts her under Emma's authority (Kitty always acts like she's smarter than everyone else, so it would be nice to see Emma putting her in her place).

As for Psylocke, I just can't thank Kris Anka enough for this new outfit of hers. It looks so cool, and David Lopez makes it look even better than it already is! If she keeps it for at least a year or two, I think it has the potential to become an iconic look just like the blue bathing suit (but much more appropriate for a ninja).
