I thought a lot about which of my favourite characters to include in this post, but ultimately decided that "You never forget your first" and went with MY entry-level X-Man; Kitty Pryde.

I first started buying superhero comics with X-Men 131, which was in the middle of her debut story, against the newly introduced Hellfire Club. She was a gawky teenager, not particularly pretty and she was in over her head with the circumstances and was, frankly and rather refreshingly, not only brave and resourceful, but openly terrified and STILL taking risks to help people she barely new (Which I can always respect). But the X-Men Hellfire Club can be cover in more detail in other posts... if we haven't already... much check on that.

Shadowcat - Mutant, teenager, kickass fighter, good friend and really, REALLY bad enemy to make )

When Dwayne McDuffie took over writing duties for the Jason Rusch Firestorm series he already knew the title was heading for cancellation. He only got to write three issues but it still some of the best writing and some of the best fight scenes that any of the Firestorms have ever gotten.

Here's three pages from issue #33. )
