Mutation resulting in the ability to become intangible and render other objects or persons intangible. Intangibility allows for the phasing through of any solid surface and the ability to "walk" through air.
Excellent hand-to-hand and armed combatant with training in the martial arts.
Above average intelligence with skills in electronics and computer science.
Note: Ability to pass through electronic devices causes a disruption in their function. Kitty must hold her breath when phased within solid objects, much like a swimmer when underwater.

The young Kitty Pryde upon reaching puberty began to suffer frequent and increasingly severe headaches.
Professor Xavier observed the young mutants manifesting powers via the mutant detection system Cerebro. He was unaware that his rival Emma Frost (White Queen II) had tapped into Cerebro and was aware of Kitty's emerging powers as well.
Both Frost and then Xavier interviewed Pryde for membership into their respective schools, not revealing to her or her parents that she was a mutant. After Pryde's interview, Xavier's students the X-Men treated her to a local malt shop visit. While at the malt shop Frost and members of her group the Hellfire Club attacked the X-Men. A frightened Pryde phased through a wall into the alley where she lay unconscious, due to exhaustion from using her new-found power.
Regaining consciousness Pryde stowed away aboard the Hellfire Club's hovercraft, where the X-Men were being held captive. After the craft arrived at Frost Industries, Pryde managed to obtain the phone number to the Xavier Institute from Storm and summoned the other X-Men. After a successful rescue Pryde was offered membership in the X-Men, taking the name of Sprite and then later Ariel.
