Katherine "Kitty" Pryde is a mutant who possesses the ability to "phase" through objects.
Katherine "Kitty" Pryde is a mutant with phasing abilities and is able to rise and lower herself through solid objects. She is a student at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. She is from Illinois.
Senator Kelly referenced as "the girl who can walk through walls" in Congress. She can briefly be seen in Xavier's class at the beginning of the film.
Kitty phases through walls and through people to escape William Stryker's military forces during their attack on the X-Mansion. Another scene shows her falling through her bed to avoid an assault. She shares a room with Siryn because her phasing ability gives her partial protection from Siryn's scream. When the President of the United States asks Professor Xavier how he got the files he gave him, Xavier replies that he knows a little girl that can walk through walls.

- "Basically your body goes to sleep while your mind travels back in time. As long you back there, past and present will continue to co-exist."
- ―Kitty Pryde to Logan[src]
Kitty, Iceman, and Peter Rasputin met up with Bishop, Sunspot, Blink, and Warpath. They formed a plan to survive; they continuously move around the world. Warpath can sense Sentinels so whenever they found the group, they fought them off as much as possible while Kitty sent Bishop's consciousness back in time a few days ago to alert the others so they move to a different location. Eventually they met up with their old teachers Storm, Charles Xavier, Logan and Magneto. They met up so they could send Charles' mind back to 1973 to change the past so this future never happened. However, Kitty told Charles that the most anybody can survive is a month as any more than that would destroy the brain. Logan, however, volunteered as his mind could withstand that.
Kitty sent Wolverine back to 1973. During this, Logan met Stryker and in his anger, he stabbed Kitty before Magneto restrained him. Bobby tried to convince them to let her rest as she was losing a lot of blood but they tell him that they have to continue or else they might never escape. Meanwhile, the Sentinels attacked the X-Men and eventually broke through the vault that held them. They were about to execute the X-Men but Logan had been successful in changing the timeline.
Kitty and Colossus were teaching a class together at Xavier's school.
