"You are here. You fought the weekend war, and you made it to the other side. Welcome to Monday; you can be anyone here. This is a new day, a new beginning, a new chance to be great. We are wiser and wilder than we were yesterday. Go kiss a stranger. Scream your favorite song from the top of the tallest building. You have the right to remain rock and roll. This is the end of the innocence; youth wasn't wasted on us. Now get out there, and write your story." - Brian Logan Dales, The Summer Set
Boy, next week its Phoenix galore lol. I know Jean is not showing up here, but the Phoenix is, and also if you guys want to check it out.
The Mighty Thor is also coming next week, and it features the Phoenix too. But it has Quire in it. Meh.
I hate how everyone and their mama can now access the PF when before it used to be just Jean and her kid. Then it was extremely powerful psionics and eventually that wittled down to mutants and now pretty much anyone
And here's the Mighty Thor preview!
Of course you can thank Fox for this, the next X-Men team film is titled X-Men: Supernova. So with a film focusing on Phoenix in her cosmic glory, they've decided to incorporate her more in the Marvel Universe. The Phoenix appearing in both Thanos and Thor, and later on Jean meeting various major people throughout Marvel like Odinson and Dr. Strange.
The Phoenix can exist inside of anything. It could possess a firefly. But not everyone it possesses is a Phoenix. Notice when the Phoenix entered the p5, they completely lost focus on what they Phoenix was supposed to do, undo Wanda's spell and restore mutation. Hope herself did that when she cast the No More Phoenix spell with Wanda.
The true Phoenix who saves everything is Jean Grey, who saved the universe from destruction at the hands of D'Ken, who stopped the celestials from destroying a planet (X-Factor 50), who ended Inferno (the demons on earth were destroyed when Jean accepted the part of Phoenix that had animated Maddie/Goblin Queen). Jean is the Phoenix that saved both mutants and the Shi'ar from Cassandra Nova. She erased a future universe that had been corrupted by Sublime.
The Phoenix 5 immediately got power hungry and made themselves rulers of Earth. Showing that they weren't Phoenixes at all, and in the aftermath of this the Phoenix broke their powers. They could not contain the power. During Endsong, Emma Frost said she was a shell, not a host and that it was going to burn her up.
As for the Phoenixes in Thor and Thanos, we know Adult Jean/The Phoenix is appearing in generations, so who is to say she doesn't collect them?
I don't care how she collects the Phoenix fragments or if they are rogue fragments as long as only Jean and Rachel can use the PF.
I'm hoping there's a good reason for this. Perhaps a more active Phoenix Force will help set up the story in Jean's solo series. I hope Marvel does coordinate among writers when using something as powerful as the Phoenix. It would be great if the Phoenix is part of a larger story that'll play out in both Jean's solo series and a larger event down the line. That, or Marvel is just treating the Phoenix like the Cosmic Cube and using it as one big McGuffin. It could really go either way at this point.
