Quote:Young Jean? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...
Plus, Marvel sharing the next issue cover teaser only served to anticlimactically spoil the impact of page 19-20 by showing that image of everyone is apparently recovered and unscathed. Sigh.
What a ridiculous cover, given events. Like being blown to smithereens never even happened. Maybe it's a deception. And maybe Marvel is so disorganized they didn't realize they shouldn't show that cover.
So let's see: How could Jeanie-Bopper survive?
Could she be an External?
Is she powerful enough to broadcast an illusion that even tricked the Phoenix?
Has she evolved into some new form?
Quote:Interesting (contrived?) to see only previous guest stars show up to help too.
If Jeanie-Bopper actually found her way to being a thorn in the Phoenix's side, then the previous guest stars are all that matter. What she learned on her journey is what saved her.
This is what prompts real Jean's return, and her first act is to restore Jeen.
