The Jean Grey School Brochure

It's little touches like this that make me glad I pick up a comic...

If Kitty has a degree, and I don't think we have any evidence she has, it would be in computer science or astrophysics, her two specialities.

There was a whole miniseries about ten years back that focussed on Kitty Pryde's college life. Can't say I read it.

And I don't recall her graduating in that either.

Astrophysics, really? I never pegged her for that field. Even if she has tons of experience of breaking the laws of physics in space.

Yeah, it was always a little odd.

I believe it was a bone of contention with Byrne and Claremont when creating her. Byrne wanted her to be a much more average kid, no unexpected areas of mental brilliance, but Claremont wanted her to be a child prodigy as well as a mutant.

She was also brilliant at electronic engineering and computer hardware, one reason why she and Doug got on; she built the computers, he programmed them.
