I decided to create this blog, to show how important Jean Grey is to X-Men.
The Phoenix has always be part of who Jean Grey is. Makes her unique and one marvel most powerful marvel characters of all time.
The red colours, Dark Phoenix represents, darkness, & rage. The Green colours of Phoenix represents good and White crown of Phoenix represents her as one with the Phoenix. There has been a lot of discussion to do with the Phoenix among fans, some people believe that the Phoenix is too big X-Men, personally I don't agree with that all. There has been long periods in comics where Jean Grey has been without the phoenix.
90's were particular famous for that, Jim Lee days. Storyline like X - Cutioner's Song, where both Cyclops & Jean were held prisoners by Stryfe.
Jean grey didn't come close to Stryfe power at the time. I think writers used the Phoenix as an excuse to get rid of her, which I think is wrong.
Like Wolverine said, the Phoenix can only play itself out for so long. I think writers need to address this issue. I think the White crown will be address and what that means for Jean & X-Men sooner or later. We know with the Phoenix, she the most powerful X-Men, but without it, how powerful is she?.
She has great powers, like t telepathic & telekinesis. I think the writers need to address how much power she should have with the Phoenix and how much she shouldn't have.
Since the departure of Jean Grey, the teams haven't change that much. There hasn't been much of a variety. Back in 90s, the Jim Lee days. You had variety, the Blue
team and Gold team. Then you had Chris Claremont X-Treme X-Men and Morrison run in New X-Men, You had a lot of a variety.
If we look at the members, the people who I think will benefit from her return. First of all I think Storm will benefit from her return, cause there both strong women, there best friends and it won't seem like just a Cyclops team, or a Cyclops reign in comics, maybe Storm can play a bigger part.
I think beast will surely benefit from her return, Beast hasn't always agree with Cyclops actions, Cyclops hasn't always listen to him and I think with Jean there, he may have a chance. She could be the peacemaker there. There Angel too, we not sure what will happen when she does return, will she get back with Cyclops, or won't she.
IF she doesn't, then maybe Angel will benefit, he always had a crush on her, so you never know. Jean grey maybe single again. I think iceman will benfit too, Beast, Iceman & Angel are all from original X-Men, maybe they can finally be reunited.
Storylines & Comics
People say Jean Grey is too big for X-Men & the comics and somehow I don't think that is true. I decided to list the, best & important stories with & without Jean Grey.
To see the difference.
Age of Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix Saga, Fatal Attractions, Here Comes Tomorrow, Legion Quest, The Prime of Miss Emma Frost & Murder at the Mansion, Onslaught, Phoenix: Endsong, Phoenix: Warsong, Planet X, Ultimatum, X-Cutioner's Song & X-Tinction Agenda etc.
Divided We Stand, House of M, Messiah CompleX, Necrosha, Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire, Second Coming, Utopia,Torn & Civil War.
Stories like Messiah War, Old ghost, Angels & Demons & not far & forgotten, even though there some of the best stories.They not really related to the X-Men, there just about the X-Force & Cable. As you can see a most of best storylines feature Jean grey. This show how important she is, how having her in team,is a better thing for comics & story lines. Phoenix: Warsong, doesn't feature Jean Grey, but feature the Phoenix force, which tie to Jean Grey.
There are three main characters that I think will benefit from her return.
I know people have said that love traingle has already be play out between Emma, Cyclops & Jean and the result was Emma. Not by choice either.
Rachel Grey has been a poor substitute for Jean Grey, she has no important connections to the team. She hasn't been part of team for long time.
