    Now she has brand new powers.

    I don't see the X-Office bringing her back, now that they have this "new and improved" version.

    I would say "flexible" instead of "new and improved".

    Because he wanted to do his own version of stories that everyone has seen many times like Magneto as the big bad, Jean dying and dystopian future story.

    At least with Adult Jean they couldn't pretend the Morrison run didn't happen.
    Nowadays Marvel pretends that nothing happened after DPS and that Jean's been dead ever since that.

    I know plenty of other Jean fans share your sentiment. And I would love to see her return as well. However, I don't see that happening anytime soon. All New X-men is the top selling X-men comic right now. Bendis is taking the long road with O5 Jean Grey. He's focusing on a version of Jean Grey not tied to the same stories of the past and he's making it sell. So long as that continues, Marvel has no reason to bring adult Jean back. Before All New X-men, Marvel used Emma Frost as an excuse to keep Jean dead. I think they didn't want to bring her back because they were too fond of her being with Cyclops. Now that's over. But now they have an even better excuse not to bring her back. They have a new developing Jean Grey to work with and so long as she keeps selling, they're not going to bring in another to mess it up.

    That said, I think there is a possibility (albeit remote) that the end of Bendis's run or the O5 returning to the past will somehow lead to Jean's return. All New X-men has proven, among other things, that Jean Grey can help sell comics. Her story and her passion resonates with a lot of X-men fans. Keeping her dead simply doesn't make good business sense. Now given how long Bendis's run on Avengers lasted, I think it's safe to assume that O5 Jean's story will continue for a few more years. But when the time does come, it may trigger or at least set up her return. I hope it does, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. Marvel has found too many excuses to keep her dead. I don't doubt they can come up with more once All New X-men is over.

    I do wonder about this sometimes. If Bendis is around for the long haul and his 05 does lead to the original Jean returning, would the effect have worn off by then? Part of the success of ANX is the freak factor of having a version of Jean around again, and that stems from the fact that the original was/has been gone for so long.

    I'd love for Jean to reunite with her friends.
    I'll never forget the hate I had for Marvel by the end of endsong.

    3) As much as im grateful for getting some sort of Jean material, I still want the original more than a spinoff version. It just doesn't feel quite the same.

    Sadly, as I mentioned in this thread before the wipe, I dont think we are going to get her back (at least until marvel feels a need to drastically shake things up 10+ years down the road). Being the closest thing to a main character in the series (in other words, lots of character development/story time that they wont want to throw out the window), plus Bendis' comments about trying to build continuity and keep it, I think Jeens here for good.
    Imo, this is the perfect time to bring her back and no I don't want Phoenix-less Jean.
    Leave White Crown in the white hot room, Jean has a school that she should come back and look over, be apart of its growth.
    Return her as Jean Grey, green costume, powerful but not too powerful, they can write her as they SHOULD write Storm.
    Humanity ruling over her power levels as it does 'ro, knowing when to cut loose and when to simmer down.
    If it's anyone besides Storm who has a straight head on and can do some leading, It's Jean imo.
    Storm will be there beside her to help along with Logan.

    I just don't see the point of 'Jeen'.
    Maybe it's just for this story arc or whatever but I'll take what I can get for now.
    It just doesn't make sense to me as does 99% of anything that Marvel does these days.

    Practically the Jean fan credo.

    On the bright side, "Jean" hasn't had this much focus in the comics in a LONG time.

    I am kind of sick of Jean having to pay for others mistakes and stupidity. Jean, Storm and Xavier should be the three main leaders of the X-men.

    Scemma would have been interesting had Jean still been alive. Since she is dead, it only emphasized dramatically Emma's second best Cubic Zirconia arm candy being that she is.

    Anyway, I'm enjoying Teen Jean. I don't think it's wrong to hope that the eventual goal of All-New is to set up the adult Jean's return, though. It's basically the way I've been reading the book since I started... so I'm a little biased, I guess.

    Unfortunately, of that trinity 1/3 is currently missing his brain and another has ascended to a new plane of existence, regardless of what canon you follow.

    Here's hoping Storm's solo goes like gangbusters.

    I never had a problem with Scemma by itself. As far as those two were concerned if Jean's influence was needed it was because Scott needed someone to balance him out in terms of the greater X-Men leadership since that wasn't really Emma's thing. After Jean was gone and Xavier left for Genosha, Scott was the undisputed grand poobah of the X-Men. Jean was the perfect foil for Scott, but with her gone Marvel had no one step in to fill the role. Storm could have but Marvel had other ideas for her, so eventually it turned out to be Logan. That's not unheard of really, but from my admittedly biased perspective Jean would have been so much more interesting in that role.

    Scott and Logan's "Schism" may have made some sense but to longterm fans it was largely a punchline. But if the Schism had been between Scott and Jean if she had been around? I imagine any longterm X-fan would have wanted to read that whether you cared about the two of them or not.

    It was Uncanny 394 actually. Churchill's Jean Grey was something.
