Jean Greys storytime
Writers who don't know how to use them. A lot of them don't know how to set up stakes because to me Galactus should only be you know saved for big stores not job to a time traveling Jean Grey.
It's part of a maxi-series of one-shots.
I'd honestly say that you can get the same concept of these stories, but better crafted by reading the most recent run of "Nova", in which Sam teams up with a newly resurrected Richard Rider.
it established that Jean can make her own PK Spirit Bomb from siphoning the pheonix's power , rather than channeling it directly. that'll be how she beats it, clubbing it across the head with with its own fists, so to speak
Honestly I think these are all just illusions being used by Nick Sr. to nudge certain heroes in the right direction for where he (read: editorial) needs them to be when Legacy starts
>Galactus should only be you know saved for big stores not job to a time traveling Jean Grey.
It kinda makes sense in context. Teen!Jean is a psionic sponge and she was literally next to the greatest source of psionic energy in the universe. The Phoenix can fight Galactus to a standstill, and fighting 2 Phoenixes doesn't exactly improve Galactus's odds.
Galactus was also in an issue where Hercules tried to get him wasted.
Do you not know who Mastermind is?
>T-that wasn't Jean that did all those horrible things. Jean was asleep at the bottom of the ocean in a magic coccoon while The Phoenix PRETENDED to be Jean :^)
It was a dumb as fuck retcon that only existed to bring Jean back to life and absolve her of blowing up a planet full of innocents.
If teen Jean is a sponge for psionic energy and she took energy from the Phoenix, doesn't that mean Galactus was fighting two half phoenixes? Conservation of energy means that whatever teen Jean absorbed phoenixjean had taken from her.
Wouldn't the Phoenix be more like an infinite reservoir of psionic power? I mean, Jean using the Phoenix is still only tapping a tiny portion of it from the white hot room. It's like with Starbrand. Starbrand can give other people a portion of his powers, but his powers are infinite energy so infinity/2 just leaves you with two people having infinite energy.
So if this takes place during the original phoenix saga when Beast and Phoenix believe the rest of the X-Men are dead, then this isn't even Jean at all, it's the exact duplicate the Phoenix created so they could asspull Jean back to life for X Factor
No, it's a duplicate. It doesn't have the real Jean's conscious mind and she doesn't see, feel or remember any of the things the duplicate does. They're two entirely separate, identical beings.
Replace mummy with planet
It's refreshing to see a book that actually tries to make sense in continuity. A lot of other writers would've just thrown Phoenix Jean Grey in here without worrying about the continuity and in doing so they probably would've made a mess. But Bunn actually fit this into an exact place in time of the old comics.
It's a nice change of pace.
Yes, but in modern continuity regular Jean is even older than she was here, but she died and is now chilling out on a different psionic plane of existence.
So for these two to meet it's either a resurrection of old Jean or a further time travel of young Jean.
You're headcanoning now. Nowhere in this issue does it explicitly state or solidly imply that the old X-Factor retcon is 100% written out of continuity now.
They just ignored it again like they always did.
Comics are built on meaningless stories. Most comic A plots are useless with only subplots carrying from comic to comic.
The subplot here being Little Jean trying to come to terms with fate.
Jean later merged with the phoenix so the copy(and subsequent memories) became part of Jean. Then Jean herself concluded that the copy didn't do anything she wouldn't have which is a slightly inaccurate assumption.In exiles it was shown that if it was the real Jean she'd not have the self control to commit suicide on the moon and instead burn the whole universe down.
Galactus looks different to every being that gazes upon him so while he does have a true form, if Jean is seeing purple then she is trying to manipulate something with a physical form she cannot even begin to understand. Basically it should logically fizzle out because she's trying to manipulate a state of matter wherein philosophy/theology applies more than physics.
On a side note; /co/ has come to the conclusion that Luke Cage sees a jive talking blaxploitation Galactus.
all beautiful people have higher social status and can relax in ways lower social stats people cannot.
Beautiful women usually like to enjoy being worshiped in a safe place, that FEELS dangerous.
Don't you like it when your heart races?
huh interesting. So Jean is a weak as bitch, who hopefully will get character growth through this reboot.
But.... in this comic young jean does nothing to help her past self, but only learns that strength and fighting and displays of force are what make you safe.
So basically Right clops is right again, and Beast can suck it.
Jesus christ get a message you want marvel.
Nope. For two reasons. If this was an ongoing story like Convergence, I would be a dumb sterling fire. But also, if we compare it to the Convergence tie ins, when two characters who are different versions of each other met, there was a deep understanding the characters would come two that was built on years of development and continuity. This is just light snap shots with characters having very surface level issue that can be solved by just progressing the natural story. These suck.
