I saw a couple sample pages of this book, by Tim Leong and knew I should buy it. I read it on the Kindle Fire, so my page numbers might be off.
I was pleasantly surprised that Kitty Pryde made many graphs, and even more surprised when Lockheed and Magik was represented, at least once.
Page 22 – Character Line Up, has Lockheed around two and a half feet tall and Kitty at five and a quarter.
Page 87 & 88 – The Many Affiliations of the Marvel Universe, Kitty is associated with three : The X-Men, Excalibur and The New Mutants.
Page 100 & 101 – Battle Breakdown. Now I am not sure how accurate this one is, it keeps track of how many battles characters have won, tied or list. Kitty has been in 201 fights, won 55 percent, tied ten percent and lost 35 percent. Lockheed, 166 fights, won 55, tied 15 and lost 30 percent. This is a two page graph, so it wasn’t the easiest to read on the Kindle.
Page 139 – Character Kingdom, under Mammals, then Feline, we find Shadowcat.
Page 147 – To The Grave and Back, tracking how long characters have stayed dead. Magik, from 1993 to 2009. A very long sixteen years.
Page 191 – A Peek Inside the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. Kitty is Headmistress, and teaches Ethics 101 – Forgetting Everything You Ever Learned from Emma Frost.
Page 215 & 219 – Ranking the Characters in the Marvel Comics Universe, Kitty is on page 219.
If the above doesn’t tempt you, then the below graph may, as it is the first one I saw, and I knew then, that I had to see the rest.
