The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character Kitty Pryde Shadowcat of the X-Men and Excalibur Kitty Pryde, a member of the X-Men most commonly known by the codename “Shadowcat” (and previously known as “Sprite” and “Ariel” has always been depicted as overtly Jewish. Kitty Pryde is one of the few recognizably Jewish characters in major super-hero comics and, in fact, is one of the few major super hero characters to overtly and recognizably belong to a real mainstream religion.Kitty Pryde’s Jewishness is most evident simply through her wearing of a Star of David, often as a necklace. Her religious affiliation is simply one part of her character, and has never been a source of caricature or a central focus of her persona.
