I don't think Jean's boring. It's just the way they use her is awful.
Madelyne Pryor, the Phoenix, Rachel, Cable, her annoying attraction to smelly Wolverine. They just do bad stuff TO her. They never use her. She's like the Scarlet Witch...she exists to be life's punching bag. They lurch from catastrophe to catastrophe. And it's never really ABOUT them or what they want or their desires. They're both just always caught up in a bunch of nonsense that gets inflicted on them.
If they got rid of all these alternate timeline relatives, cosmic entities and aliens slaughtering her real family members maybe Jean would be ok. Jean sucks because of everything the writers do to always tear her down. No one has bothered to really let her be happy or in control of her life.
I mean has she really been in control of her life since the 70's?
