    The deaths in Planet X did feel pointless, but Jean's has stuck around for a loooong time. It seems like the franchise has moved on, and there really isn't a reason other than nostalgia to bring her back.


I don't think it is about nostalgia.

1. Has the X-Men gotten along fine without Jean? No. The past several years have been awful. I thought X-Men vs Inhumans was about as much fun as licking shower scum.

2. If Jean is so useless then why do we have teen Jean, Hope and Phoenix running around? We have those 3 characters taking her place. If Jean is so irrelevant get rid of teen Jean. If Jean is relevant get rid of the teenage version and just use the real one.

3. She's one of the originals. No one has any business killing her off and expecting her to stay dead! The Dark Phoenix story may have been great but Claremont should have never done it IMO.

4. I don't want her back to relive her glory days. She never had any. She's always been wasted. But with Logan, Scott and Charles off the board she finally has the opportunity to reinvent herself.

I'm not angry because they killed off a great character. I'm angry because they killed off a character who was always treated as a victim and never given any real control over her life when she could have been great if given a chance to find her niche. She's the Sansa Stark of the X-Men going from one degradation to the next.
