I don't think Jean's boring. It's just the way they use her is awful.
Quote: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.
Quote:If they got rid of all these alternate timeline relatives, cosmic entities and aliens slaughtering her real family members maybe Jean would be ok.
Translation: If they rebuilt the X-universe to revolve around this character that I like for whatever reason (apparently not for how she actually appeared in the stories) that would be AWESOME. But only maybe.
Yes, that really is an excellent reason to bring Jean back
Quote: 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.
Quote:I mean has she really been in control of her life since the 70's?
Was she ever really been in control of her life in the 1960s or 1970s for that matter?
So why not give her a chance to be in charge of her life. And do it away from the X-Men........build her into the character she deserves to be?
