Short answer: Another waste.

Longer review:

Generations - Phoenix & Jean Grey 001

This was just as pointless to read as Generations - Banner Hulk & Totally Awesome Hulk ! However, it was a smidgen more... bearable. It appears that the patterned theme is more discernible - a current Legacy Hero is inexplicably transported to the (Universe 8, unchanged from Universe 7) past to confront the original iconic hero of bearing their superhero mantle. None of the 5 W's answered, hence not helpful at all. At least this tale tied into Young Jean Grey's current storyline, more appropriately than the Hulk's was, and the timeline placement was easier to infer (albeit only if you are a longtime X-men reader). The art was quite pleasant too.

The Phoenix is given an impressive power showing in a untold past clash against Galactus. However, Young Jean's whole argument against warning/sharing observations of the future came off very lame considering that's what the O5 have been all about since they got here - altering the natural timeline with their input. It was great to see Uatu again but in spite of his spot on cryptic wisdom, Young Jean really made a wasted trip after not getting one direct question answered or new insight evident - even with 8 extra pages priced at an extra buck.


I miss Dad & Dan.

So basically more time travelers taking our jobs.
