OK granted my knowledge of the MU is nowhere near as good as that of the DCU but I'm seriously confused by this cover from Wolverine and the X-men #5.

Is this implying Kitty Pryde is....well, pregnant with the Brood? Because I thought the Brood just ripped themselves out like Xenomorphs from Aliens. Or is this just another example of cover art having nothing to do with the content of the comic?

I think that the way the Brood thing works is they lay their egg in you, then it eventually merges with you and you turn into one of them, so no chestburster thing happening.

Also, wasn't Kitty turned/almost turned into a Brood Queen at some point?

I'm pretty sure Storm was at some point. Maybe it's something all the X-Girls have to go through.

Well its just that once I read a comic where colossus had a nightmare of the women in his life suffering horrible fates then coming after him; Kitty became a brood queen, a healer he met during the secret wars died and became a zombie, and her sister being kidnapped by Belasco and being turned into a demon sorceress.

So I figured it had some context in the real world (In the dream they said Colossus had broken Kitty's heart, but I figured the Brood thing had some waking world connection as well.)

She and the rest of the X-Men were nearly turned into Brood hunters in a classic arc by Claremont. Notable for being the first Paul Smith artwork on the X-books. Ororo nearly turned at one point until she merged with a space whale.

Oh vintage Claremont, how I miss you.

you know... having seen Torchwood and Dr. Who... the space whale is not at all surprising :D

I adore RTD, but I've yet to find a single idea he used in DW or TW that didn't have a touch of the MU in there somewhere.

I do like that Jack is explicitly named after Agatha Harkness though. So random.

I adore Jack, but I have to roll my eyes at the 4596.

Sigh, in the past we had Paul Smith X-Men and these days we have Greg Land X-Men.
