kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Default)
[personal profile] kingrockwell posting in [community profile] scans_daily
There was a request about this scene, working from hearsay that Kitty was surprised that Ororo was black. As you'll see, this isn't quite the case.
One panel from X-Men (v1) #129, collected in the Dark Phoenix Saga TPB.

It wasn't Ororo's skin that surprised Kitty, it was her eyes!

Anyone else think we might could do with a tag for filled requests?

As awkward a question it is... I would ask it to.

Is that Logan in the back, grinning over a Hustler with people giving the back of his head dirty looks?

Yes it is. With Peter hovering over his shoulder looking appalled.

I don't think he's appalled so much as completely flummoxed.

Though isn't this after he loses his virginity in a Savage Land threesome?

Possibly, but Zabu was a very gentle lover.

My brain is safe as I don't know who Zabu is. Obviously, someone must rectify this by posting scans.

Hint: He's joining the Pet Avengers.

No scans to hand, but you might want to try here ( and "here ( for a little background

Ah, sabertooth-tiger-on-giant-Russian-metal-dude action. Gotcha.

Oh, this panel's awkward.

Of course, Ororo is merely the latest blue eyed, white haired, black women in her family line as it's a matrilineal trait IIRC. Though that probably wasn't retconned in at this point.

The guy who told me that Kitty was surprised that Ororo was black.

I thought he was pissed that Ororo wasn't black enough

Nope, he misremembered and thought Kitty was surprised that Ororo was black.

Ooh, diss on Ororo's part.
