Powers; 
 Shadowcat possesses the ability to pass through solid matter and objects by passing her atoms through the spaces between the atoms of the object through which she is moving. In this way she and the object through which she is passing could temporarily merge without interacting, and each is unharmed when Shadowcat had finished passing through the object. This process is called "phasing." 
When Shadowcat is phasing, she is, for all intents and purposes, intangible. Hence, when attacked, she can shift into a "phasing" state (even if she is not at the time passing through an object) so as to allow oncoming projectiles or energy blasts to pass through her harmlessly. Shadowcat passes through objects at the same rate of speed at which she was moving before she "entered" it. 
 
  • Selective Intangibility: Allows others to become intangible and make other objects intangible by making them pass through other massive solid objects easily such as buildings, planes, and trains.
  • Partial Intangibility: Kitty can choose which parts of her body become intangible. She make one part of her intangible while leaving the rest of her body solid.
  • Elemental Intangibility: Allow elemental attacks to pass harmlessly through her such as water, fire, earth, air, energy, electricity, and even lightning.
  • Physical Disruption: Kitty can easily damage tangible matter by passing right through it.
  • Non-Corporeal Physiology: Kitty's intangibility abilities make her practically untouchable.
  • Air & Water Walking: Using her phasing/intangibility ability, Shadowcat can freely walk on both air and water. In fact, she could use her ability to walk on water and the air from the ground to the upper stories of a building as if she were climbing a staircase.
  • Phasing/Intangibility Extension: From the first use of her phasing power, Shadowcat was able to phase her clothing along with herself. Through practice she learned to phase other objects along with herself without harm to them, and at one point phased an entire X-Men team. She could also enable someone as big as Colossus to "walk on air" along with her. However, she had to maintain physical contact with the people or objects she phased along with herself for the effect to work with this other person or object.
  • Camouflage: Kitty can easily blend into the colors of her immediate surroundings and environments, practically making her invisible to anything seen to the naked eye.
  • Shadow Camouflage: Shadowcat can also become completely invisible and unseen in shadows.
  • Electronic Disruption: She could phase through any material object, even living people. When she phased through an object with an electrical system, the process disrupted the system's workings.
  • Telepathic Resistance: Her thoughts were highly erratic when phased as if there was no mind to telepathically affect.
  • Cloaking: Kitty can hide herself and others from any type of optical eyesight.
  • Phasing Limitations: Since she was unable to breathe while "inside" an object, she could only continuously phase through solid objects (as when she travels underground) as long as she could hold her breath. Denser materials were more difficult for Kitty to phase through, sometimes causing her pain. Solidifying while in an object could cause serious injury if not death. As it is an active ability, if she can't see an attack coming, she can't phase through it.

History:
 
Kitty's led a sheltered life since childhood, with a possibly strict father. At the age of fifteen her powers emerged, but headaches related to them started at the age of thirteen. Though her parents were overprotective, particularly her father, they were very caring, and her childhood was very normal. When she first became a member of the team, being the fourth X-Man to join, she was a bit uncomfortable with the lack of normalcy, and grew to adapt. 

Kitty continues to be eccentric, and highly intelligent, and optimistic member of the team. 

Random Notes/Things from the Comics to Keep: 
  • Kitty Pryde is Jewish. Cultural memories of the Holocaust made her especially sensitive to all kinds of prejudice against mutants, humans or any alien species, much more if it involves camps or imprisonment.
  • She answered to "Kitty" over "Katherine" since she was three years old.
  • Kitty is slightly nearsighted.
  • Kitty attended Robert A. Heinlein School for Engineering and Astrophysics in Chicago on a full scholarship.
  • Kitty is a genius in the field of applied technology and computer science. She is highly talented in the design and use of computer hardware. She is a skilled pilot of piston and jet engine aircraft, and a competent pilot of certain advanced interstellar vehicles. 
  • She is a professional-level dancer in both ballet and modern dance. She speaks fluent English, Japanese, Russian, and the royal and standard languages of the alien Shi'ar and Skrull, and has moderate expertise in Gaelic, Hebrew, and German.
  • Kitty also shares a mental/empathic connection with her pet dragon Lockheed; both she and the alien dragon can "sense" each other's presence at times and generally understand one another's thoughts and actions.
