Exclusive Preview: X-Men Gold Annual #2 Flashes Back To Kitty Pryde’s Past

Within the pages of X-Men Gold, Kitty Pryde emerged as the new leader of the team and seemed poised at finally finding happiness with her long time love interest, Peter Rasputin a.k.a. Colossus. Like any couple, Kitty and Peter have had their ups and downs, like the time he broke her heart after Secret Wars, or the time he went a little crazy and joined Magneto’s Acolytes. Not the best look, Peter! But ultimately, their love conquered all,,,or so we thought. In the end, Kitty left Peter at the alter and the X-Men have barely begun to process what that means for the couple and the team itself.
