MegaCon 2023: Kate Pryde Gets a New Costume and a Familiar Codename for 'Fall of X'
Announced at MegaCon 2023, Kate Pryde will adopt the name Shadowkat and don a new, ninja-inspired costume for 'Fall of X.'
Since 2019’s revolutionary HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X series, mutantkind has experienced unparalleled growth and prosperity on the island nation Krakoa—but can it really last forever? The FALL OF X begins in July’s shocking X-MEN: HELLFIRE GALA #1 one-shot, where danger, conspiracy, and sacrifice threatens to shatter everything mutantkind accomplished on Krakoa.
Unveiled today at MegaCon Orlando's Marvel Comics: Fall of X panel, Kate Pryde will undergo a radical transformation during FALL OF X. She’s been known as Kitty, Sprite, Ariel, Red Queen and Captain Kate. Now, as the X-Men find their way through their darkest hour… SHADOWKAT emerges! Harkening back to the character’s ninja training, the character's new costume was designed by visionary artist Peach Momoko.
Longtime X-MEN writer Gerry Duggan will continue to write the title throughout FALL OF X. Following the Hellfire Gala, the title will see a cast shakeup with new additions such as the winner of this year’s X-Men fan vote and Shadowkat.
