This isn't just insulting Jim Shooter anymore. OR IS IT?

Kitty, despite being an experienced badass, can be VERY childish.

Piotr joined the Acolytes because he was sad and angry Illyana died of the Legacy Virus. All right, quitting the X-Men because Xavier let him down, I understand. But joining Magneto when he's at his "Kill all humans" worst?

at that time, Colossus was suffering from brain damage he'd suffered from the hands of the X-Cutioner in one of the annuals, which was later resolved in the Fatal Attractions issue of Excalibur. saying it because he was "sad and angry" is a little disingenuous.

(ETA: if anything, I'd say this is directed at Bendis. Were the Marvel powers-that-be that upset he jumped ship to DC?)

Okay, so...

Maid of Honor: Ororo
Bridesmaids: Illyana, Rogue, Betsy, Rachel, and Jean.
Best Man: Logan... any or all versions of him.
Groomsmen: Kurt, Remy, Bobby, Warren, Hank
Officiant: Stan Lee. (Who else is going to officiate a wedding between a Jewish girl from Chicago and a... hmmm, what -is- Piotr, anyway? Russian Orthodox?)

Will Xavier walk Kitty down the aisle? One does wonder how this will turn out.

Given how he's always had a mentor/student relationship with Kitty, I can see Logan giving her away and Kurt as the best man.

Legally, and in the eyes of most faiths, yes. Annulment is not just divorce/dissolution, it's a "never happened".

It's why saying Henry VIII had six wives is not technically accurate as three of his marirages were annulled, meaning as far as the Church and State were concerned he'd had three wives.

I want Illyana and Rachel (and Doug, just for kicks) to take Kitty out for a LOT of drinks and explain to her in excruciating detail, and with flowcharts, just what a BAD idea this is.

From: [personal profile] scorntx
Canonically, when Kitty gets drinks in her, she starts rambling on about physics.

Which would definitely produce one heck of a scene...
Illyana and Rachel trying to warn Kitty about her choices, as she's trying to explain quantum tunnelling for the third time in ten minutes.

I would read the HELL out of that comic, especially if the story unfolds backwards as we get explanations for everything, except for one piece of absurdlty which is never explained.

Aside from maybe Rachel, I'm not sure any of them are known to make the greatest life choices but SOMEONE needs to talk Kitty out of it.

Well, I'm assuming Marvel think this is something X-fans want.

I'm sure this will bring about the big turn around in sales they desperately need.

It's an odd touchstone for many people who read the X-Men as they were really getting absirdly popular.

It was always one of the slightly odder relationships that Claremont came up with due to the age difference. Kitty was 13 (though intellectually, if not emotionally, much more matire), Piotr was around 19 (and almost chronically naive). Her crush on him was understandable, his interest in her was a deal more problematic, though it should be clarified that there was never anything physical between them, he in fact turned her down when she suggested (during the Bood Saga when they all thought they were about to die) that they "be" together (Which was the only acceptable response from him of course, but was nice to see stressed)

The biggest issue I think though is that as a relationship it didn't even last. Kitty was already not sure about her feelings for him and Pitor was noticed that she was gettting closer to other kids more like her than him (Like pre-discovering-he-was-a-mutant Doug Ramsey) They crushed, they pined, Secret Wars happened when Pitor fell in love with a passing empathic healer who died and they broke up (Piotr got into a fight with )

They then both moved on with their lives and remained friends (more or less) had other romances and partners, all of which were more interesting than their original pairing.

Then Joss Whedon brought Colossus back from the dead and kickstarted the now legal age Kitty and Piotr sexual relationship for no readily apparent reason, and since then it's just been somethnig of mess with Colossus often showing to be very possessive and immature to the point of creepyness (Such as his dinner date with Kitty during the time he was a Phoenix host which was just the most uncomfortable thing EVER).

This decision seems to be more based on rose tinted nostalgia and a vaguely remembered relationship that never actuall was.

IIRC she was allowed to age up in Excalibur and had a relationship with Pete Wisdom. Then her age was re-conned back 'not yet legal' by Clarmont when he came back to the X-men then she was aged back UP later on.

So Joss re-coned a re-con...I guess?
