    Well - then they are potentially stepping into dangerous territory. One of the core messages in the Dark Phoenix saga is that power corrupts - but presumably Jean would have been able to handle it (due to her virtuous nature) if Mastermind hadn't stepped in to manipulate her. Without the corruption from an external source, they are essentially saying that a very strong-willed woman can't handle power- and that can be a very explosive topic these days.


Well it's the power to destroy galaxies not a leadership position at Starbucks. Men probably can't handle that level of power any better.
