Long Live Kate Pryde
See this week’s Marvel Unlimited additions.
In this week’s character-defining MARAUDERS #12, Kate Pryde, Captain of the Marauder, enjoys the many perks of being alive… including being able to swear revenge on the man who (nearly) took it all. After being blasted and tossed overboard by the treacherous Black King, Kate Pryde is ready to reckon with fate. In style.

LONG LIVE THE RED QUEEN
Kate Pryde, the woman who ignores boundaries, is unable to enter or phase her way through any Krakoan gateway. A key aspect of mutant society, Kate’s inability to travel via portal left her resurrection status in question. After eighteen attempts in Arbor Magna, the Five were able to bring one of Kate’s husks back to life… with a psionic boost from Emma Frost.
Following a funeral fit for a Viking, the Red Queen returns, and her extended mutant family is overcome.

KRAKOA HAS HORSES NOW
In a completely on-brand move, we learn that Emma Frost has introduced a population of pedigreed horses to the island of Krakoa because of course she has.
Useful for royal entrances or battlefield pep talks!
THE WHITE AND RED QUEEN ARE IN CAHOOTS
Emma Frost played a critical role in Kate’s rebirth in MARAUDERS #11, and, for all her snark, has proven to be one of Kate’s fiercest allies in Hellfire Bay. After telepathically gleaning the true nature of Kate’s death from Lockheed, Frost vows to undo Shaw by any means.
Although, the Black King’s murderous streak isn’t exactly shocking. Shaw and Frost have history as former members of the Hellfire Club, but even the psychic White Queen failed to see the writing on the walls.
KATE CAN PARLEY LIKE A PIRATE
Maintaining a façade of effortless cool after being resurrected by a hivemind from a gooey egg, Kate keeps up appearances at her “You’re Not Dead” party by accepting a gift from the Black King.
Within the wheeling, dealing circle of the Hellfire Trading Company, Kate has become a master of the cutthroat. As evidenced by this icy exchange with her murderer.
CAPTAIN KATE HAS FRESH INK
Pairing perfectly with her swashbuckling ‘tude, Kate gets some prophetic tattoos while on the mainland. This look is a far cry from the roller-skating, legwarmers-loving Sprite of yesteryear, and it feels like the complete formation of the woman Kate is meant to be.
SHE WILL KILL SHAW
