      Best telepath/telekine around and matriarch of the X-Men. Storm comes close in the latter, but not even really to Jean's extent.

    Yeah, I guess Emma could never fill that niche, though it sometimes seemed as though she was trying, her stripper outfit and harsh comments notwithstanding. She was trying to fill Jean's shoes - but just didn't have the emotional capacity for it. Hmm - all of a sudden I find myself wishing for the White Queen and Moonstone to become a duo.

          Xavier seems to be coming back too.



    Quote:
    I'm sorry to hear that Professor X is coming back. I really don't believe Marvel has any idea what to do with him. I wish Marvel could be counted on to really try new things instead of just pretending to.



    Quote:
    Adult Jean Grey with no Scott and no Professor X would be well positioned to step forward as Marvel's archetypal woman hero, on a par with DC's Wonder Woman.



    Quote:
    But of course that won't happen. She'll become the Phoenix. Again. And die. Again.


I hope they just give me a blue fire Phoenix. I'm surprisingly easy to please. If you turn a flame character blue I can look the other way with a lot of bad storytelling!
