Happy Christmas Eve!
This is one of my favorite Christmas X-Men Kitty Pryde stories. Kitty is still a kid amongst the X-Men, but not by her choosing. She longs to be treated like an equal, and less like a student. Well, tonight on Christmas Eve, she'll have her chance to earn her stripes....'CAUSE A BIG FRICKEN' DEMON IS GOING TO HUNT HER DOWN!
This tale is straight out of the Aliens films starring Sigourney Weaver. While the X-Men are away celebrating, Kitty is chased around the mansion trying to evade and not be killed by this giant demon. She leads the demon to the Danger Room, where she uses the equipment to try and kill it. This has no effect. Fearing for her life and desperate for options she runs to the X-Men hanger, where she uses the Blackbirds jet engines to fry that bitch! All seems calm, until out of the flames the demon stretches it's demon claws at Kitty. Is this the end of our spitfire heroine?
