Is Jean Grey anyone's favourite X-men? Does anyone actually like Jean Grey? Growing up the girls I knew never mentioned her amongst their favourite female heroes. Alot of people say that the wors t X-man is either Cyclops or Wolverine. I have to disagree and say its Jean. All I remember her doing was cause love triangles, turn evil and get killed repetitively.
I don't think anyone's most hated x-man is Cyclops or Wolverine, that would be ridiculous; they have a ton of great stories. I think people just don't like them cause they can be considered overrated or overused.
Also Jean hasn't been in any popular stories as the OG Jean since Morrison's New X-Men and she was kind of a bitch there (although rightfully so) and not exactly a likable character as a person.
I think Jean is a good character, just not used well considering she always gets tied into Muh Phoenix shit
> We have to bring her back because muh Silver Age
> Well what do we do with Cyclops and his wife and kid?
> Not our problem, Claremont's the one writing X-men we're just throwing a wrench in it
Fuck everyone involved in that retcon
To be fair as anyone ever gone to the Xavier or Jean Grey academy and graduated to become a paralegal or dentist? Mutant schools are like if every major available was gender studies; it just prepares you to repeat the cycle, not do anything of value.
And at end of day, as you say, they end up in fights. Xavier took powerful kids when he formed X-Men, dunno why are Angel and Beast there, second team had Vulcan and his team, third had Storm... Cipher can read. Bravo, very useful.
Wolverine's school was supposed to be like that, with NO FIGHTING, PLS! We're training to be people, not superheroes!
Then he put flamethrowers in toilets and shit.
I want to see a story where whoever's in charge of the school that week goes to approach a mutant, teenager, and it's a like, the most powerful psychic or some obscenely broken combat ability, but the kid and his parents go "No fuck that he's going to medical school. He got a full scholarship and everything. You'll just get him killed." and the X-men have to go home with their tails between their legs.
Then like a year later there's a single page of the kid graduating and opening up his practice.
Can't wait for that tripfag Phoenix Egg to pop into the thread to fag it up. Talking shit about his waifu triggers an autistic rage from him.
Anyway, these days I think Beast is the most hated mutant.
She was my favourite X-Men. Back when she died the first time. Not necessarry "Best Superhero" but "best X-Men". I mean Phoenix showed that "the world" is reasonable when it fears Mutants, yet they desired to protect it with their lives and it showed despite all their powers their fallibility/humanness. Best of it all, it had consquences. What's not to love about that? I know: Marvel's removal of the consequences and placing constantly getting incarnations of "Jean Grey" in her place.
Every shitty girlfriend I had all loved Jean
All of them were buck shit insane I sware to Doom all of them we're fucked
Jean was only ever a stand in female in distress character. Phoenix Saga did something interesting with her but she was still the female in distress, just one of the team that needed saving by all the others. It was a good story, but even though she was ultra powerful, she was still the damsel in distress.
the whole story arc seemed to be just to show that Scott was right
nah, it's Xavier now. The shit they retconned into him completely ruined him. How many times have they retconned an Xavier mind wipe now? And every time it was to make him more of a douche
