Does anyone have a scan of Kitty performing such a feat? I've never seen her do such a thing.
Kitty and her ability to walk on air.
Its safe to say that Kitty is lighter then air, some what, when she is incorporeal because if she wasn't she'd fall through the ground when she used her powers. Unless she has such control over her powers to keep the very bottom of her feet/shoes from turning incorporeal and doesn't actually run through walls but jumps through them and uses her full powers until she gets to the other side. Or maybe I am just over thinking a comic book characters powers and should just go along for the ride.

Her most recent that I have on hand is she is shown " airwalking " several times in Uncanny X-Men #537, usually to go from one room to
Thanks guys, sorry I wasn't able to respond to this earlier. Has she used this ability recently in modern times or no?
the one above it on Utopia.
@menaceforever In A+X issue 008 team up with Kitty and Spiderwoman... Kitty explains she doesn't need to hold her breath while phasing any more and continues to say she can ever breathe and talk while phasing through objects. I think ever since that bullet from break world, she learned a lot about her powers. Its been a while since i read back when she came back from space in the bullet but i remember someone saying she didn't even need to eat while in phase mode.
Cool I'm glad the limit on her power although made sense shouldn't have been there, I think she can't leave people in walls or stck items in people not that she ever did. I always kinda hated that part of her power. I'm guessing things just stay phased until they are outside of the other object. This is a good change and I can sleep easier knowing that she can't leave a shoe inside apacalypse. Not to say she is weaken. this only improves her fighting abilities since she can fight while partially phased even easier now probably
I'm reading Astonishing X-men and just came to the above panel and sought this thread out. (on a side note you can really feel the Joss Whedon Buffy vibe in this scene.)
What if, theoretically, she could adopt a neutral buoyancy and then phase her molecules against the air in waves? Like an atomic snake. This would basically allow her to fly though and I don't think that's canon. I never understood the ability to walk on air, unless she adopted single buoyancy sheets on the bottom of her soles? Still doesn't make sense as she would just "tread water." Only explanation is fantasy. Almost nothing in any superhero continuity makes sense with physics.
From the wiki: "Electrons naturally repel each other and instead of positive or negative charge, electrons have what is called "spin", which is based on a random pattern of up and down. If Kitty can rearrange her molecules into an organized manner so that they are "polarized" with the objects she is trying to pass through then she can pull her molecules through objects (like a molecular magnet) by controlling the spin on all of the particles in her body. By reversing the polarity on air, she can then air walk by making the air around her much harder. This also explains why she disrupts electronic systems since she basically polarizes the spin of electrons in objects she passes through and drastically changes the conducting forces in circuitry."
Okay so according to this explanation she can affect matter around her, which I guess makes sense due to her ability to phase things, but how far would this extend? It would allow her to create a force field at the least, or freezing everyone in a room except for her. I guess if she can phase through time.... Anyways, fun to think about.
