Lots of things going on at Comic-Con in 2 weeks in Sn Diego, (yeah, I'm going) but here's one of the *yawn* big ones.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop.



"Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell;
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die."


John Donne.


And death not be permanent.



Yup, Jean Grey is coming back to the true 616 universe.

I hope she's in shape. There's a lot of people who need their ass kicked in order to learn lessons.

so... much,... motto... she should start with the Avengers... then with the x-men...or with Wolverine, Scott, and Cap... then go out with drink with Emma, applauding her putting up with all that crap for so long.

...man, I should be excited about this. I love Jean. But damn if I don't expect this to end up being Rachel taking her mom's old costume and name or a time-displaced chrono-echo or something. Or bringing her back for one panel and killing her off. Or having this be another First Class series. (Though I love First Class.)


Still, if it works out, yay! Don't get back together with Scott! STAY AWAY FROM THAT MAN AND HIS HORRIBLE DEATH PENIS. Become the new Marvel psychologist, now that Leonard Sampson is dead! (Is he still dead?)

From the feel of it, I'm betting it's just another "untold Jean Grey story."

It's a shame since I really want Jean Grey to make a return.

Wait, did she die last time? I thought she turned into White Phoenix and went off to spread love to the cosmos or whatever....

Yeah, that story was really weird. She died, but then she came back in the future and ascended into super Godhood or something.

And then Endsong happened and she ascended into super Godhood again.


But for some reason her body was still sticking around. Even though she ascended into super Godhood in it.

Endsong has a really weird place into continuity.

I have a feeling that it's going to be something else. Jean back in time, or perhaps that's Hope but Jean Grey's inhabiting her body, or something else entirely. I dunno. It seems that to tease us with this when we're only halfway through the event seems rather... odd.

They're already doing a 'The First X-Men' mini, and given the costume, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this is meant to tie to that, somehow.

It's too early to say what it'll be. I wouldn't be surprised if they were doing some kind of Marvel 1960s series to coincide with the X-Men: First Class sequel.

i don't think they do stuff connected to fox's cinematic universe anymore, even though gage's and neal adams' the first x-men seems heavily inspired by it.

and i wonder if they'd risk putting any of the O5 in the sixties again when, according to brevoort, scott is supposed to be 28 and beast 30.

On the one hand, Jean Grey is probably one of my fave characters in comics, or at least in X-Men based cartoons, and as annoyed as I am that she's a punchline in fandom, I /would/ like to see her back.

On the other hand, from what I've seen of current X-Men comics (and what they've done to my poor Emma), I have a feeling this is not actually going to make me happy.

There's a reason I always said that these fuckin creators need to THINK before doing any kind of shock moment. Think before doing it and it sure as fuck better make sense and mean something. Don't do it just to do it and don't make it cheap. I don't mind a death and return on occasion but it gets sooo ridiculous when it's constant. Just stop killing characters and when one dies, make it mean something. By this point when someone dies, my reaction is "Oh he's fine. He'll be back next week."

It's.... really weird.
When was the last time Jean was resurrected? Because the status quo says she's dead for always. Like, in my head, she'll always be dead, because she died before I was born.

Bringing her back would just mess up my head canon, and apparently upset a lot of people.

I can't say good or bad because I never liked Jean. It's just... weird.

If that makes you feel better, lots of people are hoping for her to be brought at some point too. I've seen them on the internet.

Can she not have a romance with Logan or Scott if she's coming back? How about she's single and wants to stay single for awhile and figure out her life? And maybe go hang out with Storm, Domino, and Pixie because they're being sneaky and awesome.

It's just, this isn't much of a shocker ending when it's the thing I kept hearing people call when the Phoenix first started showing signs of coming back. The neat twist would to not bring her back.
