Hey, I’m a big fan of X-Men! I have a question: Can you please explain me how Jean Grey got the Phoenix? It’s with her since she was born? I’m a fan of X-Men, but I never head a X-Book before.. it’s hard to find here in Brazil. I’m a fan of the whole story, but I never had the chance to read any, just made a research and got a lot of information. Sorry for my english.. and thx lol it might be a little confuse to read
Hello! Nah, don’t worry about it, I read it fine. To be honest, I’m still pretty confused myself. The writers keep trying to retcon the Phoenix Force storyline and with AvX and what not, it seems as if they’re losing sight of the PF’s origins in the first place. From what I understand though, Jean and the PF were separate entities. In the issue where she saved her teammates in the space shuttle, her powers were pushed to its limits. Somehow, the PF recognized her extensive potential and since it only sought out telepaths (at that time, at least) as its host, it chose her. She actually died as the shuttle hit the water (i think it was from the radioactivity) but the PF resurrected her immediately and it gets all complicated and loophole-y from there… But that’s basically it I guess… she was an Omega-level mutant and the Phoenix Force chose her as its host.
