i have been following the Phoenix ever since its fist appearance.. and with it, i have noticed something.. most of the titles concerning the Phoenix Force are often linked with the context of the Bible.. here are some:
Phoenix Resurrection: Genesis
Phoenix Resurrection: Revelations
not to mention certain words with biblical context often associated with the Phoenix Force like..
The Tree of Life
White Phoenix of the Crown
plus if you remember, the evil counterpart of the Phoenix Force is known as The First Fallen..
Marvel has never explicitly included biblical characters in their creations unlike DC and Vertigo which directly included biblical characters like Lucifer, Michael and even Yahweh plus many more..
did Marvel created the Phoenix Force as an indirect character based on the bible? perhaps as the Holy Spirit which is depicted as dove, or possibly an angel in the biblical context.. like when Jean Grey descended from the White Hot Room as the White Phoenix of the Crown, draped in holy flames.. she was so reminiscent of the biblical Seraphim, the burning angel of God..
all comments are welcome..
