What generation is Kitty apart of?

I was thinking about the different generations of the X-Men, with the first generation being the original five X-Men (Cyclops, Jean Grey, Angel, Beast and Iceman) and the second generation having Colossus, Wolverine, Banshee, Sunfire, Storm, and Nightcrawler. So, what generation is Kitty apart of? I'm thinking that she might be apart of the second generation X-Men since she has a closer relationship with everyone in that group (Colossus, Wolverine, Storm and Nightcrawler mainly) but she didn't exactly came out until the 80s while the second generation came out in the 70s.

I always identified Kitty as being part of the second generation. She was never to me - despite her young age - one of the "students." She had been, right from the get go - part of the main team.

I've always imagined that too, especially with her close ties with the second generation team and all she has done for the team.

Isn't she apart of the 3rd generation of the New Mutants because they are similar in age

I don't know whether the age matters, but I would put her with Storm etc. In age terms, New Mutants, but she always struck me as a year or two younger than them.

She's like generation 2.5 not quite second, not quite third.

I keep forgetting about how she's almost the same age as the early New Mutants.

I always have to go back to when Magik died from the legacy virus to remeber how close she was with the New Mutants.

Oh yeah! I remembered that Magik and Kitty were so close to each other!

Second.

Unless you mean age-wise, its the Second one.

I've always thought that too because Kitty did make her first appearance in the X-Men comics when she was with the second generation X-Men.

She never really joined the New Mutants either.

Well i mean Cyclops is around 33ish because he was only one year older then spider-man and spider-man is assumed around 32ish, so i always thought she would be somewhere around 27ish now.
