Marvel Teases the Possible Return of Jean Grey

Posted by G-Man (36557 posts) - - Show Bio

It's been a long time since Jean Grey was alive. She often gets flack for dying and coming back but since her death in NEW X-MEN #150, it's been over eight years since we've seen her.

Why mention her now? Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch posted some details on this week's Comic-Con issue. Besides the expected coverage of what you can expect to see, they mention and show and exclusive first look at the following image:

This is from an image by Joe Quesada. We can see she is in her classic/original costume. This could be something as simple as a flashback story to the X-Men's early days but it sounds as if they're making more out of this than that.

EW mentioned the following:

We can only confirm that her presence in the Marvel universe will not be imaginary. This will not be part of the Ultimate line-up. She will not be a zombie hologram, like Shard on X-Factor.

Apparently more information will be revealed tomorrow.

Thoughts? Is it time for Jean's return? Why is she in her old costume?

I'm all for it, this is the natural conclusion of AvX, that and mutants aren't almost extinct anymore

edit: Not that AvX is particularly good or anything.. I'm just saying.. this is where its all leading

I would very much love if she's coming back for realzies.. BUT. Since Joe Q. Isn't flat-out denying that she's returning...that's probably not the case.

Most characters will die in AvsX, then Punisher will kill the rest in This Is War. Punisher then commits suicide because he has finished his job. Next Jean comes back to life because she is bored she looks around and everyone's gone so she reboots the universe for 52 new comics to take place of all the old ones.

Maybe.

@kairan1979: you are right, most people don't STAND dead these days, they usually lie down ;)

It had to happen.

#9 Posted by Comik Book Guy (43 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel needs to start getting its shit together and keep characters dead for a loooooong time if they want any shock value attached to them again.

She should exist in Hope's mind to mentor her when she gets the Phoenix Force.

Also didn't Marvel tease that New X-Men series a while back that looked at the past of some specific Mutants?

I hope it's one of those two.

If she does come back I can't wait to read the first conversation between Jean, Scott and Emma. Stuff will definitely hit the fan.

#12 Posted by Dernman (15232 posts) - - Show Bio

Is that Hulk behind her?

#13 Posted by Overlander (539 posts) - - Show Bio

Noooooo

Just let her go from comics. Please.

#14 Posted by Remi (613 posts) - - Show Bio

Meh. Marvel has been teasing with her return for a long time and nothing has happened.

#15 Posted by Ludo (57 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, more resurrections, just what we need.

#16 Edited by WildStyle (331 posts) - - Show Bio

Well it's about damn time. We all knew she would be coming back eventually. I'm surprised it took Marvel this long to do it if it does end up happening.

#17 Posted by BlueLantern1995 (2448 posts) - - Show Bio

YES!!!!!!! SHE'S BACK! Wait...if they do something stupid with her again...I'll chop the writer's head off...So MAYBE YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on man, this is comics we're talking about here. How many resurrections have we seen lol?

#19 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

NO GOD DAM IT, but as to why she might be wearing her old suit i'm thinking so sort of time travel explanation

#20 Edited by Emperormeister734 (818 posts) - - Show Bio

It was bound to happen sooner or later,the question is now how she will react to The X-men, The Avengers, the other heroes villains and pretty much the whole world around her and someone will definitely kidnap her for her power. The next question is what she will say to Cyclops and Wolverine?

#21 Posted by wowylied (238 posts) - - Show Bio

No, no and no !

Marvel should reallys top making false death, jean grey is dead tons of time, thor is dead and then rebirth, captain america too, captain marvel, uncle ben was alive 3 time now (before his murder, when strange gave peter a 5 min gift and in the 2012 annual) and i am sure there are tons of other characer like that.

They make this kind of thing only for the money because some dumb reader will buy it again.

#22 Posted by Or35ti (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

It's about time. I want her to set the X-Men straight again

#23 Posted by LeaderVladimir (150 posts) - - Show Bio

@Kairan1979: Except Batman's parents, Spider-Man's uncle and Superman's Kryptonian parents.

#24 Posted by VioletPhoenix (305 posts) - - Show Bio

Bring her back, do it right, keep her away from Scott and Emma and Utopia. Make her an Avenger or at the institute, remove ALL Phoenix powers keep her as telekinetic telepath and away from that goddamn Phoenix Force. PLEASE.

#25 Posted by Mr Marvel82 (121 posts) - - Show Bio

A return would be nice. But why would adult Jean be wearing a teen uniform? I hope she doesn't come back to 616 to be Hope's age. Maybe Scarlet witch resets reality again. LOL

#26 Posted by ARMIV2 (8673 posts) - - Show Bio

But of course...

#27 Posted by Jayso4201 (600 posts) - - Show Bio

Fine by me, she shoulda been back a long time ago. I never understood why she had to be dead anyway. She is one of the main characters in the universe. Not to mention it had been done before and I'm sure it will get done again.

I would love if they brought here back. She's one of my favorite X-Men characters.

My most preferred form of Jean Grey is the dead one.

If she were to come back, only way I'd even be in slight support of it is if they have her completely stripped of Phoenix powers or, barring that, have her off on cosmic adventures, which is where the damn Phoenix should be.

Logan is just my preferred shipping option (I reallyyyyy want to see them actually together, not just sex eyes behind Scott's back).

Because Scott still has feeling for Jean. Emma being Emma will not take Jean being back too well, knowing that Scott still has feelings for her. It is a dynamic situation that I think could play out really well with a right writer.

I say BRING IT!!!! Needed to happen sooner or later. But this is so gonna be a cop out though.

Oh, please don't be Hope playing dress up.

#41 Posted by TheCommissar (143 posts) - - Show Bio

I am shocked. Shocked. Just shocked.

-_- <- See this? This is my shocked face.

#42 Posted by Blood1991 (8098 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll believe it when I see it, and not just some teaser.

#43 Posted by leokearon (1835 posts) - - Show Bio

So much for 100 years

#44 Posted by x_29 (2274 posts) - - Show Bio

YES!!!! screw you Jean Grey haters

#45 Posted by Wonder Princess (138 posts) - - Show Bio

I really hope Jean is coming back. She is my favorite Marvel character.

#46 Posted by torzone (420 posts) - - Show Bio

Fu*k ALL THE JEAN GREY HATERS OUT THERE!

She was the First X-Women, Omega-Level Telepathy & Telekinetic and the original host of the Phoenix Force, so back the Hell off. She is one of the greatest female X-men who ever lived. No one on that team power compare's to her.

Her return to comics would be great, and is something I have been expecting for years.

Ditto.

Leave Emma and Scott the f alone. (Though if she comes back, I doubt it'll happen. There's probably going to be some shock filled bull going on.)
