    Well, the answer to both of those is rather simple: because she doesn't belong in either place. Your future self (even if only potentially) is probably the worst person for you to be with. None of these teen O5 people belong anywhere in the present. Yet they don't seem to have any other place to go... still.

      I'm really surprised at how infuriated I am to learn that Jean, Jeen, and Rachel won't be sticking together. That was the story to tell. Too obvious? Must Marvel always reject the obvious? Sometimes the obvious is precisely what readers want because it's logical, meaningful, and true to the emotions of prior events. Sometimes the obvious tale is the tale that integrity wants to tell. Remember integrity, Marvel? I'll wait while you google it.

      Ugh.

    Jean and Rachel has always been the story to tell, but Marvel has never wanted to. Yet Rachel complains about never having time to connect with her mom. *eyeroll*

Personally I don't think Jean should have to suffer stories where she has to interact with Rachel, Hope or Teen Jean.

We have 3 knock offs of a character who isn't developed enough in her own right (I guess Maddie and the Phoenix entity are 4 and 5). Go find yourself Jean...don't waste time on these teeny boopers who are just an extension of who they expect you to be.
