She goes on to note that it was mainly their best date because it was the only one they went on that wasn't interrupted by supervillains or something of that ilk. And, for the record, the dress does turn out to have belonged to Storm.

From X-Men Unlimited 12, three and a half pages of an eleven page story. This story was written by Stuart Moore and drawn by C. P. Smith. The premise is that Wolverine is attacked and injured by a group of wolves. The story is his thoughts as he recovers.

Was this issue pre or post-Pete Wisdom? Because "only man I ever loved?" I don't even like Wisdom, but still... Ow.

Thanks for posting this! That Wolverine story is actually one I've always wanted to read after seeing the cover. The art on both stories is really nice. I get kind of a Jamal Igle vibe from Pelletier for w/e reason.

Maybe Logan will finally get some Jean action this time around? Maybe Scott will stay with Emma.... you know that person he has interesting relationship with.

She's worn heels multiple times in Excalibur, at least to my memory, and had no trouble. That would have to put this before, unless she somehow forgot how to walk in them just for this night.

I have both these issues. I loved XMU. The X-folk are made for this one-shot short story format.

She's the 14 year old Sprite here, as noted in the first page. Excalibur was a long way away...

Don't worry Logan, once Jean comes back from the death (again) she'll be free of Scott and maybe you two can resolve that sexual tension that's being going on for God knows how long.

Well, when they broke up, she tells him, quite possibly just to hurt him, that she only though she loved him. Maybe that was taken at face value here.

Who knows.

Agreed, but I have two sort-of issues with that 1) The telescoping nature of comic time only works if you don't ever refer to it (such as noting how many Christmas/Hannukah stories they'd had in what was considered to be a year) and 2) Claremont's not letting Kitty get any older despite other characters growing up around her always irked, especially after the New Mutants were on the scene. It always felt to me that her 15th birthday in Excalibur should have been something like her 17th.

This story also still means that 19/20 year old Piotr took a 14 year old on a date, and that will never sit right with me.

Huh. I always thought they had some closure (and by closure I meant some action) at some point in Marvel continuity. I assume (non-Marvel reader here) that with so many X-books around, you'd figure at least in one of them they did the deed.

Colossus is such a wierdo. When I was 18 I wouldn't have gone out with a 14 year old if you paid me.

I take nothing that Ben Raab wrote in Excalibur as having any worth at all.

Him pursuing her would have been worse agreed but it comes pretty close at times, and when a 14 year old with a crush starts taking things too seriously, it's the responsibility of the older target of the crush to slow things down as politely as possible.

I'm not even sure I'd have thought they were that good friends, they had almost nothing in common beyond being X-Men. One of the reasons Piotr found her friendship with Doug Ramsey so unsettling was that they clearly DID have a lot in common. Most of Kitty's interest in him seems to be entirely traceable to her having a crush on him because he was good looking.

Angry Kitty and the heels look almost perfectly icon-able.

Also, lol at the Club Bouncer.

Agreed. I think it's a little less weird since Peter is a super gentleman around her, but still.

I'd say that Peter being so thick that he's almost like a child makes it a bit less weird. But it's still weird.

Yeah, something tells me Peter didn't have to worry about being carded if he ever went back to that place.

Or having to pay for his drinks.

Yeah, I don't think it's that big a deal. Kitty's pretty mature for her age, and the gap isn't that huge. When I was 15 my boyfriend was 23, and he got so much flack for it, despite the fact that I was the one who initiated the relationship.

Nope. Kissing and groping but never the deed - except in the Ultimate Universe where they were sleeping together (when she was only 19) by issue #5 (having met just a few issues earlier) but she dumped him when she found out he infiltrated the X-Men to kill Xavier (though he no longer wanted to) and returned her attentions to Scott. Logan then basically let/caused Scott to "die" on a mission so he could have Jean to himself but when Scott made his way back Jean told Ultimate Wolverine that if she ever even had a single romantic thought about her again she would know and blink out of existence. Honestly (and I say this as someone who likes Jean and Scott together so I'm biased) once you take away the unresolved sexual tension between Jean and Logan and they actually did have sex, that would pretty much be it and it would end quickly IMO.

Well..

I've seen that happen in real life. (And with the whole, we'll wait until she's of age before going further bit..) So it doesn't irk me too much. (Especially since Pete at this point is waaaay shyer that she is..)

Howver what does bother me is that if the events of Excalibur were supposed to be in universe only a year after this, and she slept with Pete Wisdom in that. (As I've heard. As I've never actually seen the issue) Wouldn't that make her 15? Which even in the UK is still sex with a minor, since the legal age of consent here is, as you probably know from your name tag, 16.

But then I think comic book aging has long ago lost any credibility. Reading comic books in the 80es it was just about possible to believe that perhaps a couple of years in real life equated with maybe one in the comic book world. But I think we're long past that now...

Warren Ellis has gone on record as stating that as far as he was concerned Kitty was older than 16 when she and Pete had sex (I can't recall if he said he thought she was 18, but may well have done) so she was never under legal age. As I recall, it was Claremont who later de-aged her when he came back to the X-titles.

As someone whose favourite character was Dick Grayson, I was VERY used to the concept of telescoping time.

Yeah, that relationship has never ever sat well with me and to this day it still pisses me off that they destroyed Wisdom/Kitty ti reanimate its dead carcus.

This. Raab (and as a corollary, the return of Clairemont to X-Men) was the worst thing ever to happen to that comic.

LOL! Good point!

And thanks for the info from Warren. I feel a little less creeped out about that now!
