Since watching Endgame I have decided to get back into comics. While I have always liked comics, I stopped being a comic book reader in childhood. I also tended to prefer manga to comics because of the art and story consistency. So I will be adding comic reviews to this blog when I find a series I like. In the meantime I will be doing the 30 Day Marvel Challenge I found on Pinterest. Hope you guys enjoy it.
When I was a kid Wolverine was my favorite character. However, when the Phoenix saga happened it all changed. Personally, I always found the relationship between Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey to be annoying and corny. For that reason and the fact that Jean seemed to always have difficulty contributing to a fight (she was weak). This was in the animated X-Men series from the 90’s. Anyway, I didn’t like her. When the Phoenix saga occurred all this changed. Jean went from a telepath/telekinetic that could barely lift a person to a host of the Phoenix force.
It should be noted that this is how she is presented in the animated tv show. In the comics Jean Grey is originally an Omega Level mutant. Generally, an Omega-level is an mutant with ” the most powerful genetic potential.” She is considered one of the most powerful psychics in X-Men. Regardless, when she merged with the Phoenix force all of her powers were amplified and she was able to travel through space. Also, the way the Phoenix Force manifest itself is really cool. Also she’s better off without Cyclops.
