Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde #1-3

Post by Col_Fury » Tue May 16, 2017 2:09 am

STAR-LORD & KITTY PRYDE #1 (September 2015)
By Sam Humpfries & Alti Firmansyah

APPEARANCES:
Star-Lord (EARTH-616, also in fb), Rocket Raccoon (EARTH-616)’s corpse (or, the tail of his corpse)
Kitty Pryde (EARTH-51518)
Manhattan Domain (EARTH-61610): Black Bolt, Strong Guy, Polaris, Wolfsbane, Drax, Gambit (“the Collector”), Longshot’s corpse (or, his bones fashioned into knives), bystanders

FLASHBACK:
Star-Lord begins to explore Battleworld (new). Recap of Legendary Star-Lord #1-12 (no new information).
SYNOPSIS:
Star-Lord, upset that the world ended and everything he knew is gone, is now singing in the Quiet Room night club. He sees Kitty enter, and despite knowing she’s not the “real” Kitty, says hi anyway. He interrupts her trying to buy an anomaly from Gambit the Collector, and Gambit runs off when Star-Lord arrives. Kitty makes Star-Lord help her get them back.

NOTE:
Star-Lord is using the stage name “Swingin’ Stevie Rogers.” Star-Lord/Swinging’ Steve was also seen performing in the Quiet Room in Inhumans: Attilan Rising, but that can’t be the Earth-616 Star-Lord; he didn’t enter Battleworld until after Strange’s death, and Strange is -BTS in INHS:ATNR.

Kitty is from the Age of Apocalypse Domain, and works for Valeria’s Ministry of Science; she investigates anomalies found n Battleword to disprove them. Issue #3 reveals she’s looking for Rocket Raccoon (Earth-616)’s tail, not that she knows what it is. She pays Gambit with Longshot’s bones, which have been carved into knives.

Kitty is aware of other domains, and that there are multiple versions of characters across Battleworld. Also, Drax is aware that there are at least other Steve Rogers’.

STAR-LORD & KITTY PRYDE #2 (October 2015)
By Sam Humpfries & Alti Firmansyah

APPEARANCES:
Star-Lord (EARTH-616), Rocket Raccoon (EARTH-616)’s corpse
Kitty Pryde (EARTH-51518, also in fb)
Manhattan Domain (EARTH-61610): Warlock & Cypher (Doug Ramsey) (also as “New Mutroids:” Cannonball, Magik, Sunspot, Wolfsbane), Gambit, Longshot’s corpse, bystanders
Widget (noted as an alternate Kitty)
Apocalypse (EARTH-51518, in fb)
Doctor Doom (EARTH-616, in fb)
Valeria von Doom (EARTH-15513, in fb)

FLASHBACK:
Kitty Pryde was a spy for the Apocalypse Domain, until she starts working for Doom and Valeria to investigate anomalies in other Domains.
SYNOPSIS:
Kitty and Star-Lord continue to search for Gambit. They battle the New Mutroids and eventually track Gambit him to a museum where he traps Kitty and Star-Lord.

NOTE:
The New Mutroids aren’t making an actual appearance, it’s just Warlock making duplicates of them out of himself. We could surmise that there was a New Mutroids group made up of these characters at some point in this Domain’s past, though. Kitty killed Cypher when he recognized her, and then Warlock committed suicide.

The implication is that Kitty has been working for Valeria for a while, so this flashback happens sometime before SRCWARS 2 (but not TOO long ago, Valeria looks largely the same in this flashback as she does “now”).

STAR-LORD & KITTY PRYDE #3 (November 2015)
By Sam Humpfries & Alti Firmansyah

APPEARANCES:
Star-Lord (EARTH-616, also in fb), Rocket Raccoon (EARTH-616)’s corpse (also in fb)
Kitty Pryde (EARTH-51518)
Manhattan Domain (EARTH-61610): Gambit, Longshot’s corpse, Drax, bystanders
Widget (see NOTE)
Thors: Beta Ray Bill, Thunderstrike, old man Thor (looks like the future version seen in T:GoT), a lady Thor (not Angela)

FLASHBACK:
In better times, Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon share a drink.
SYNOPSIS:
Gambit is defeated when Drax arrives dressed as Doom. They finally look at the anomaly and Star-Lord realizes it’s Rocket Raccoon’s tail. Kitty goes back to her job and Star-Lord considers going back to sing at the Quiet Room.

NOTE:
There’s an illustrative image showing alternate Kitty’s from different Domains, but it’s not a flashback or a real appearance (it’s not like they all met and posed for a group photo); it just shows examples of possible other Kitty’s.

Kitty’s analyzer verified Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon’s tail are from the same place back in issue #1.

Widget is not from the Manhattan Domain, because there’s already one there (as seen in ULTEND 5). So, Widget is a Kitty from a different Domain. Just because it makes SO MUCH DANG SENSE, I’m going to say this Widget used to be the Kate Pryde seen in Years of Future Past #1-5. Our map has that mini happening sometime in the past of Battleworld, so that works out fine.

Chronologies! (I’m not doing any of the Thors here yet. Hopefully we can figure out where each one came from)
