Jean Grey has been dead in the comic books for 15 years, but now she’s back with a twist that completely changes the game for the character.
Warning: full spoilers ahead for Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey and X-Men Red!
Jean Grey was brought back to life by the Phoenix in the pages of January’s Phoenix Resurrection #5. But instead of bonding once more with the cosmic entity that gave her incredible powers, Jean turned the Phoenix away. It was a truly shocking twist, but it immediately made sense why the folks at Marvel Comics decided to do it: Jean Grey is better off without the Phoenix.
