"Kitty's Fairy Tale". Kitty Pride tried to tell Illyana Rasputin a Fairy Tale based off on the X-Men and their exploits, unaware that she was actually tapping into an existing alternate reality for inspiration.


Several years ago on Earth-616, Kitty Pryde told a bedtime story to young Illyana Rasputin. Her story involved an adventurous far-off land populated by strange creatures and characters inspired by her own teammates – the X-Men. What Kitty didn't realize at the time however, was that she was in fact subconsciously creating her own alien dimension wherein these characters truly existed.

Years later, the X-Man known as Nightcrawler arrived in this enchanted land after several mishaps involving the Well at the Center of Time. He met the Bamfs – a race of creature with characteristics similar to his own, as well as pirate versions of his teammates, Kitty Pryde and Colossus.

  • In Uncanny X-Men Annual #8, a now-teenaged Illyana returned the favor for Kitty’s fairy tale by constructing a space opera adventure wherein Kitty is a space buccaneer and mortal enemy of the White Queen after being the sole survivor of the space liner “Chicago”. Elements of her story helped to address such issues as Kitty’s broken relationship with Colossus, and Storm’s depression at the recent loss of her powers. Unlike Kitty’s fairy tale, none of the characters from Illyana’s story have appeared in “real-life”, so no official parallel world entry has been assigned them.
  • In Daydreamers #1, the Daydreamers traveled to an alien dimension similar to the one from Kitty's Fairy Tale.
  • X-Men: The Animated Series had an episode devoted to a similar fairy tale reality Jubilee's Fairytale Theater.
