#1 Edited by time (5004 posts) - - Show Bio

When she returns. If this was going  to happened to her?
 
If she was going to lose the Pheonix
 
If she was going to get back  with Scott
 
If she was going to have her own mini series 
 
If she was going to join the Avengers 
 
If she was going  to start dating Logan 
 
If she was going to established a new X-Men team with Storm. 
 
If she was going to beat the crap out of Emma Frost  
 
If she was going become headmistress of the X-Men
 
 
How many of you would be upset or happy about it?. I am just curious, I know there are a lot of Jean Grey fans out there. That want her to come back.

I think that if Jean comes back they'll need to do a lot of work to make her unique again since they've handed out all her usual hooks to other characters.

  • I think she should lose the phoenix entirely  
  • She should NOT get back together with Scott (or Logan, or anyone; define her as her own character before pairing her up) 
  • She could join whatever team--Avengers, X-Men, FF, whatever 
  • They should subvert expectations and make her fast friends with Emma, much to the chagrin of Scott 

I'm totally ambivalent in her coming back as long as they move the character forward. If they bring her back just to wind the clock back that would suck. Scott has moved on with Emma and Logan just had a storyline where he admitted to himself that he's finally over her. And she NEEDS--badly needs--some work on herself in a solo context to develop her character in new directions. She can't be the old Jean because there's already Rachel and Emma and Hope and the Cukoos and all the other "powerful female psychic phoenix messiah people" and she shouldn't be reduced to just "[male x-man's] love interest." 
 
If they bring her back to reset an old status quo, cover the same old story themes, and regress the surrounding characters, that will bug me. Otherwise, I don't care. And because I don't care and because I don't trust them to do it right, I'd rather she just stay dead.

1. she'd just get it back again 
2. I can't see him doing that. He's been with Emma for years now.
3. she won't get a miniseries. That's far far far less than likely 
4. ......why would she? They wouldn't ask her to join. They're the Avengers, not the X-vengers. Wolverine is the only X-Person to ever strattle that line (other than Beast) and they did it because they have much more to offer than just their powers. Jean is JUST her powers 
5. it'd be interesting and then it'd end. Probably badly, but still it'd end to preserve the status quo 
6. ......What? Why would they do that? Storm is barely an X-Man now as it is. She's too busy with her other responsibilities to form some new team with her undead girlfrend. Now, STORM as an Avenger- that's something worth considering.....  
7. Ummm. No. I'd like to see her try though. 
8. Maybe if she develops the mutant ability to travel back in time to the 90's when that was a viable option

1. No, because then she'll be overpowered again and be forced back into comic book limbo. I think maybe she can retain a fragment of it like Rachel?
2. Yes and No, a part of me will always be in favor of the pairing, but in real life, people move on, people drift apart.... if they do, it shouldn't be rushed.
3. Yes, I would read.
4. Yes, change is good, and if I remember correctly the Avengers were the one that found her cocoon originally, she should help them out.
5. Yes and No, i like their romance, but Logan isn't the type that would commit, Jean deserves better. 
6. Yes. Jean and Storm are best friends, I would like to see their friendship start up again.
7. Yes.... I mean No... she already proved she can beat up Emma when she exposed the affair, but the point is, Jean pushed Emma to help Scott move on, so there you go.
8. Yes and No, she definitely has the potential to do that, but times has change, depowered mutants, utopia, etc etc... so much has changed and she's out of the loop, you cant be put in charge of the X-men without knowing and understanding the situation.

Agreed 100%

 If she was going to lose the Phoenix
 -Good for her. Give it to a different character and give her a break.
If she was going to get back  with Scott
 -Indifferent, although I do think she's better for him than Emma.
If she was going to have her own mini series 
 -I might read it.
If she was going to join the Avengers 
 -She's not right for that team.
If she was going  to start dating Logan 
 -I'd like to see that.
If she was going to established a new X-Men team with Storm. 
 -Add in the other X-women and I'd read it.
If she was going to beat the crap out of Emma Frost  
 -Yes. Doooo ittttt.
If she was going become headmistress of the X-Men 
-Hasn't she already been that?

1.If she was going to lose the Phoenix
   
good. let writers work on developing her character instead of falling back on that tired crap.

If she was going to get back  with Scott 
 
upset. Scott and Emma are good for each other.
 
If she was going to have her own mini series  
i might try it out
 
If she was going to join the Avengers  
I'd be psyched.  I think it would be a good alternative.
 
If she was going  to start dating Logan 
  
i'd be a little irritated. that whole thing is old. 

If she was going to established a new X-Men team with Storm. 
 I'd prefer her to take Logan's spot on the Avengers. 

If she was going to beat the crap out of Emma Frost  
 I'd laugh my ass off. 

If she was going become headmistress of the X-Men 
 Emma also pretty much has this covered

When she returns. If this was going  to happened to her?
 
If she was going to lose the Pheonix 
She can't lose it, they have plently of ways to keep her there without sending her to the WHR...it has been said enough times on panel that the nature of the White hot room is beyond space and time and reality and that you are always there waiting for yourself to arrive, which means even if Jean comes back to Earth as the mutant Jean Grey, she would still be in the White Hot Room as White Phoenix, so that takes care of that, her omega level potential obviously allows her to tap the Phoenix as a power source the way other psis tap the astral plane or Magneto taps the EM field of earth
 
If she was going to get back  with Scott 

Why would she, she let him go to begin with, he wasn't over her, she let him go and made him get over her
 
If she was going to have her own mini series  

 why not everybody else does the premise could be dealing with her time away and be a back story.  There is also the fact that Jean seems to come back from being White Phoenix without memories of it like she she did after Dark Phoenix, it could deal with her fleeting memories of being a god and acclimating herself to being back in reality and a mutant again 

If she was going to join the Avengers 

never was too crazy about this, the Xmen need a mutant who reps what they originally stand for more than ever  
If she was going  to start dating Logan  
no, part of her being able to develope should start with her being just Jean and single 
If she was going to established a new X-Men team with Storm. 
 she should
If she was going to beat the crap out of Emma Frost  
Emma made a very big threat at the end of Warsong, lets see if she (Emma) is gonna stand by her words 
 
If she was going become headmistress of the X-Men 
She should rebuild and reopen the school any mutant that wants to follow the original dream would be welcome and those who don't can stay on utopia, not severing contact just being different factions of the same group, it wouldn't be the first time different teams of X-bearing mutants had different agendas to reach the same goal...equality.

If she was going to lose the Phoenix: Completely cool with that
 
If she was going to get back  with Scott: No, they are over and she needs to move on. They aren't good together anymore
 
If she was going to have her own mini series: I would order it right now lol
 
If she was going to join the Avengers: No she would match that group
 
If she was going  to start dating Logan: I'm ok if she did that for a while 
 
If she was going to established a new X-Men team with Storm: I support this and think it should happen
 
If she was going to beat the crap out of Emma Frost: well they need to settle some things  
 
If she was going become headmistress of the X-Men: Ehh I want her to be more active than just being the head of the school
