She was probably revived by a magical healing Amazon ray that went back in time and retrieved her DNA then restored her.

I would Park my Peter in her, though.
 
2012-07-02 01:34:33 PM
Psh!...did anyone really think they were actually going to leave her dead?
 
2012-07-02 01:38:15 PM
Ya know, an ellipses would have made the headline so much better. To whit...um...unless it's to wit. I alwasy get that confused. Anyway:

Jean Grey returns to the Marvel Universe. Uncle Ben still dead...FOR NOW

It's a Life Model Decoy.
Dying dream.
Force ghost.
Doombot.
Hope or Scarlet Witch in disguise.

Zombie Uncle Ben. And how many times has Jean Grey died? More than twice, I think.

simplicimus: Zombie Uncle Ben. And how many times has Jean Grey died? More than twice, I think.


Well there was the time she died at the end of the Dark Phoenix Saga (**Only that was later retconned, and it was revealed that it wasn't really her, it was the Phoenix creature who had been impersonating her all alongh...the real Jean was sealed in a hibernative cocoon at the bottom of a lake and later reemerged).

But then there was the time Madelyn Pryor died, who wasn't really Jean but was kinda/sorta since she was a clone of her and all.

Ah, and then there was the time she was killed by Sentinels, only it was later revealed she had, in fact, transferred her mind into the White Queen's body...

Hm. Has she ever actually died/died??
 
2012-07-02 02:03:58 PM
I mean i guess thats sort of her thing, "rising from the ashes" as it were, but this is getting ridiculous.
 
2012-07-02 02:04:23 PM
I'm impressed Marvel was able to hold off for this long resurrecting her.

Unfortunately, their whole "we're going to kill a character once per quarter" mandate (yes, they really have that mandate) has made it so that comic book deaths elicit nothing more than a huge yawn these days.

Magneto killed her when he was revealed that he was pretending to be Xorn and hopped up on drugs.

And when she and Scott disappeared into the future and everyone thought they were dead.

So that wasn't Xorn's twin, Xorn, pretending to be Magneto, pretending to be Xorn?

/Grant Morrison is farked in the head.

Grant Morrison killed her off in his run, I believe.

Besides, her codename was Phoenix, (one of them anyways) do why wouldn't she be back.

As a comic fan from the 90, I am really depressed at the flack that Bucky dead and Jason Todd dead are irrelevant.

Or even Magneto in drag!

Morrison Xorn was Magneto in disguise. Joe Queasada hated his run,(and it's still coriaversial to this day) because so many characters weren't acting like themselves. He especially hated Xorn/magneto idea and retconned it to Xorn having a twin pretending to be Magneto.
 
2012-07-02 02:24:49 PM
And if this is actually Jean and not a time displaced younger version, clone, Doombot, alternate universe self, shapeshifter, someone wearing a really good disguise, hologram, ghost, etc, hopefully she'll kick Scott's butt

Darth_Lukecash: He especially hated Xorn/magneto idea and retconned it to Xorn having a twin pretending to be Magneto.


Which actually proves that Quesada doesn't know jack. The Xorn concept was one of the few things about Morrison's run I actually liked.

Are you sure it wasn't Joseph, Magneto's younger clone, pretending to be Magneto pretending to be Xorn?....hopped up on drugs..?

No, Joseph was in the 90s, after Onslaught, if memory serves...at least, they're connected in my mind, I might be wrong.

I like the Onslaught concept. Too bad the execution was...meh.

I thought it was during the Onslaught crossover? I know I remember him participating in that fight in New York.

The following people are still dead:
Superman's birth parents
Any hero with the codename of Grasshopper
Gwen Stacy
Wasp
Uncle Ben
Bruce Wayne's parents
Ted 'Blue Beetle' Kord
Most of the original Hellions
Most of the students that attended Xavier's Academy before M-Day
The New Warriors team that was lead by Speedball before Civil War
Sentry

I think she's gotten that problem fixed.

Technically, Phoenix was the entity that possessed Jean...

I stopped buying AvX a month ago because it was obvious this was where they were going.

Man, the only Marvel title I'll buy anymore is Invincible Iron Man, otherwise they are too overpriced for too little content.

I'll just stick with the "indie" (can you really call Image or DH indie anymore?) titles.

Joseph was just before Onslaught. After the AOA epic, Avalon was destroyed, and Magneto was jettisoned to Earth. Shortly after that, an orphanage in South America found Magneto, only it wasn't him, it was Joseph.

He died in The Magneto Wars, but showed up briefly in the Not A Hero mini.

A lot of the dead arose during the Necrosha storyline, and a few actually were revived from the T/O virus, and then cleansed of it, like Cypher.

And yeah, the Quesada hatred of Morrison's final run was silly. Within weeks of Morrison and Chuck "The antichrist" Austen leaving, Magneto showed up alive and the back story was retconned, though Jean was still dead, and many of other major changes by both men were wiped clean in a Christmas special that Claremont wrote...No, I'm not kidding.

They brought her back months ago....

...true, it was an alternate universe version, but she stepped into the 616.

I highly doubt that it will be the actual Jean Grey, but then they have brought Scarlet Witch back and she's teaming with Hope, the new Phoenix (coming soon).
 
2012-07-02 05:43:51 PM
How many times did Jean Grey die and come back to life in the comics? And doesn't practically every comic book character do that at least once?
 
2012-07-02 05:44:13 PM
So I suppose that means Rachel's got to go again...which is really too bad, I like her a lot more than Jean, but Marvel seems to never let both of them be around at the same time.

/Phoenix for longer, better team player, doesn't die nearly as much
 
2012-07-02 05:47:21 PM
From TFA:

Does this mean that the fan-favorite character is finally returning?

Jean Grey is a fan-favorite?

How many times do people ask how many times has Phoenix died and doesn't every Fark Phoenix thread post posit that question?
 
2012-07-02 06:29:09 PM
Phoenix Cyclops vs. Jean? Oh shait...I don't care.
 
2012-07-02 06:34:00 PM
And this is why I stopped reading Xmen comics.
 
2012-07-02 06:36:36 PM
I may be in the minority here but I just got back into reading comics because of AvX. I like where it is going so far. Plus spidey training hope is just too funny for words.
