What will Rachel Grey think of Nate Grey

Posted by Peregrine (165 posts) - - Show Bio

Now that Nate isn't dead and Rachel is finally returning to Earth..it seems likely that after all this time the two will finally meet. I know that Rachel had a strong bond with her brother Cable (does she know he's dead?), I'm wondering how she will react to having another brother? Rachel and Nate have a lot in common..they are both the children of Cyclops and Phoenix from harsh dsytopian timelines who managed to escape into the 616 reality, they both have a strong bond with their "mother" Phoenix, and they are both omega-level telepath/telekinetics who have both recently lost a lot of their power (heck they both even manifested phoenix force raptors and have glowing right eyes). I'm thinking Rachel will accept her brother Nate with open arms (after all the family she has lost she should be happy to have a new brother) and Nate will be  happy to have a sister. Plus it could make a cool comic "The Adventures of X-Man and Marvel Girl" lol

Rachel still has her powers, she just doesn't have the Phoenix Force anymore. I'd much rather see her mentoring Nate than Hope.

I'm thinking Nate as a lot of awkward and unsettling encounters coming his way. I just read New Mutants #28 and Hope is assumed to not want anything to do with him, until very later in the issue. But I can't wait till Rachel and the others finally return, that'll be interesting indeed. But I'm like you, I think she'll be more accepting than anything...let's hope so at least.

They may have already met.

Hope isn't very much like Rachel. The latter has a bit of a thing about familial relations...

I think they should gather together Rachel, Hope, Nate, and Cable and then kill them all off to bring back Jean, and then kill her off again.

In that case, if they're bringing Jean back as Phoenix then yeah, they can kill her right back off.

I get the feeling that they have already met off panel!

i apologize for my ignorance, but Nate and Rachel have never met??? How is this so???

@TheOlympian: Well when Nate arrived on on Earth 616, Rachel had already been lost in the time stream...then when Cable saved Rachel and brought her back, Nate had already died saving the world from aliens...and then when Nate got resurrected Rachel was lost in space with the Starjammers. They just kept missing each other lol

As a comic book reader this makes sense and I don't think twice, but when I imagine telling a non-comic reader this O_O I can just imagine the looks I'd get lol
