Re: Shadowcat Costume...

Please let it be a permanent jettisoning of that frumpy, uninspired student uniform she's been wearing for like two decades now!!!!

lol. YES! Overall, I don't find her interesting enough to lead a book. But they're trying really hard. Storm has been reduced to flying around in the background with zero dialogue and yet Kitty still bores me. Joss Whedon did a great job writing her for the last Astonishing title but she just falls flat for me in this book. I've stuck to buying Blue,Astonishing, Jean Grey and Iceman
