    -She calls herself 'not a slayer'?? That's self-delusional if they're not even going to footnote the very last issue slaying. Sheesh. Sidebar: Remind me if she clearly has or has not been seen killing any battle fodder before this?

She has not.

I'd also say that killing something doesn't necessarily make you a killer.

    -She doesn't know about Mjolnir and then she's done. No-Prize reason: is that she's flustered meeting an A-List Hero under scary circumstances. Fine. But she's acting like a quivering newbie and she shouldn't have made this a solo trek. Remind me: did she ever share a back issue panel with Thor before being flung into the future - not that this story would think of slowing the story pace down with that potentially significant detail. And IT IS significant because WHY would she choose HIM (under so many circumstances) as her Warrior Training Coach?!

Well, she IS A quivering newbie. If we're to accept that this is Jean circa Uncanny X-Men v1 #8, then she's never met Thor (the Avengers did meet the X-Men in the following issue). The team didn't know much of anything about the Avengers. Before coming to the present, they probably saw them once or twice on the news, and that was it. This team of X-Men were sent to the future near the beginning of their existence as heroes. Pretty much everything should be new to them, except the BoEM. Even Sentinels should be new.

In Uncanny X-Men v1 #9, an average Joe driving down the street runs into the Avengers. He mistakes them for "creatures with wings, hammers, shields -- even giants!" The world at large knew almost nothing about Avengers, who were just as new. Average Joe then ran, like a basketcase sacred out of his mind, into the X-Men in street clothes. The X-Men went to investigate blindly.

    -Sooo... the killing of sooo many orcs is meaningless to her? Sheesh. Surely, Thor killed a percentage in his attacks and probably a punch were just knocked out. But it is a serious storytelling mistake not to reveal reaction or accountability of Jean in those deaths!

I'm really not so sure any of the orcs are dead.
