In Excalibur #5, written by Chris Claremont and illustrated by Alan Davis, Opul Lun Sat-Yr-9, the deposed dictator of Earth-794, killed her Earth-616 counterpart Courtney Ross and took her place.

This is from Excalibur #10. The art is by Marshall Rogers.

Later on, the Cross-Time Caper storyline had the Excalibur team going through several alternate realities trying to find their way home. In Excalibur #19, Kitty Pryde gets separated from the rest of the team and finds herself back on Earth-616. The art is by Rick Leonardi.

This is from Excalibur #21. The art is by Chris Wozniak.

This is from Excalibur #24. The art is by Alan Davis.

This is from Excalibur #25. The art is by Chris Wozniak.

Then, in Excalibur #32 Sat-Yr-9 spies on Kitty as she stands up to some of her bullying classmates. The art is by Ron Wagner.

Chris Claremont left the title at #34, and the Sat-Yr-9 storyline was dropped. Alan Davis returned to the series with #42, as the writer and the artist.  One of the things he did was resolve some of the dangling plotlines that had been left.

In Excalibur #55, the team is having a housewarming party at Braddock Manor.

Later, Sat-Yr-9's forces attack everyone at the party.

Then, in #56...

And then...

Jamie Braddock is defeated by Psylocke, but before the team can do anything he and Sat-Yr-9 are rescued by her soldiers and taken away.

Over at his forum, Alan Davis talked about Sat-Yr-9's relationship with Kitty. "Although I knew Chris had some plan for Sat Yr 9 to corrupt Kitty and that the various Cross time versions of Saturnyne were attracted to Kitty, I had no idea what, if any, the goal of this relationship was to be. I just played it as a lesbian affair. Kitty the innocent victim of a wicked woman-- I thought all of scheming was just a ruse to keep Kitty interested. I mean, the Hellfire Club isn't really into world domination thats just a ploy to get the women to dress up as dominatrix... Isn't it?"

Oh, thank you. I always wanted to know the end of the story. (Also, Kitty the demon ninja at prep school was _awesome_.)

It always gets me when people say "Oh, I knew the previous writer had a plan but I didn't know what it was" when surely all they had to do was pick up the phone and ask.

Well, perhaps he didn't want his default assumption corrected? I mean, I can't imagine Claremont's reasoning being more sound than his in this case. ^_^

Heh. That cake scene is just pure sex. Why? Largely because of where Kitty's hands are. It's such a tiny detail that completely changes the nature of the scene from a kid eating cake to a girl licking her sugar mummy's finger.

So cool! I love Excalibur and Alan Davis. Does anyone know what he's working on now? Excalibur generally looked like crap when he wasn't doing the art, but his work is great.

Jeez Sat-Yr-9 really picked up where the White Queen left off didn't she?

And I gotta say I really have a hard time believing Kitty was only 15 by this point. I mean didn't she end up sleeping with Pete Wisdom later in this run?

I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Sat-Yr-9 *was* her reality's Kitty Pryde, just older and with her hair dyed platinum blond.

This was hinted in one of Excalibur's alternate universe adventures. They save a young woman they *think* is an alternate, unpowered Kitty Pryde from thugs, only she says her name is Courtney Ross.
