X-Girls by Reilly Brown
The first comic I ever read was Claremont’s Dark Phoenix Saga. Fuck Scott and Logan, Jean/Ororo forever y’all.
“I see this big mansion, all this wealth. You X-Men fight to protect a rich, elite world — not my world.”
Jack from What If? V2 040! Instead of roaming Africa at the age of ten, Ororo instead heads off to the United States, where she remains a thief, comes into the care of a young prostitute and an elderly conman and changes her name to Jack.
This issue is written by Ann Nocenti, who wiki tells me is a famous Daredevil writer or something? Either way, the issue is completely magnificent and it reminds me why I love Ororo, underused as she is.
Time for alt. designs from What If? books, aka my favorite official AU’sever.
Hank McCoy / The Beast from Exiles V2.
And the last three in his X-Kids.
