The cover, the only time Kitty Pryde appears in the issue is a homage to Uncanny X-Men 139.
The team, who are all separated from each other but are all in the Ultimate Universe – so that’s one good thing.
Angel is in the Savage Land where James Hudson, the current Wolverine, is. Wolverine recognizes Angel as not being the one that his dad knew.
Beast wakes up in the water and swims to shore. Based off of the language people are using, he believes he is in Turkey.
X23 is at a football game.
Iceman is surrounded by The Mole Man and his Morloids. Iceman doesn’t know who Mole Man is, and Mole Man doesn’t know what a phone is.
Jean has met Spider-Man, at the end of last issue.
Sorry the image isn’t as great, my home scanner isn’t that large so I lost a little along the two edges but I just wanted the proper Kitty Pryde line. Which is nice that it is in the middle of the page.
I’m surprised this wasn’t an easier image to find online but no one had a Lettered copy of it.
Jean is trying to get her bearings. Spider-Man tries to figure out what the deal is. I do enjoy how he keeps trying to reintroduce himself. Providing names will at least give the two something to refer to each other as.
Jean recognizes that Spider-Man is in a new costume, but only to her. Jean finally introduces herself and he recognizes the name. It doesn’t take much for the two of them to figure out that they don’t know each other at all. How great of a title would “Kitty Pryde and the X-Men” be!
Jean wants to just jump ahead a few minutes and just read his mind. Which really, Jean? You can’t just continue a conversation? I like how Spider-Man’s main concern is that he’s a teenage boy and not all of his thoughts should be read.
Just like in All New X-Men 5, when Jean read Beast’s mind, she makes the same mistake and reads Spider-Man’s mind. That girl doesn’t learn from anything!
At least we get to see Ultimate Kitty Pryde, that’s pretty awesome!
We get scenes of Miles’ life that I don’t have any context for as I only read his in Cataclysm and All New Ultimates. He’s fighting his uncle, The Prowler. His meeting with Proper Peter Parker during Spider-Men. Him kissing, I believe, Kate Bishop, his girlfriend.
Jean knows she is on the wrong Earth. Spider-Man knows all about that. I like how he recognizes that he shouldn’t have said, Peter Parker. Jean doesn’t know who that is. Jean’s comment about being in both the wrong time and space is pretty clever.
Spider-Man offers to take Jean to where the rip between universes is. I like how he instinctively grabs Jean so they can swing away. Jean doesn’t like to be grabbed.
X23 is on a motorcycle, with several police cars right behind her. She drives off a bridge and onto a truck.
Beast gets to a city, as he figures out he is in Latveria. The Doombots help
Spider-Man and Jean get to where the tear is. Dr. Cho arrives, announcing that the tear is gone, as is his research. He tells Jean that she is stuck there, as the issue ends. At least he had the good sense to ask for some of her blood and urine.
