Jean Grey goes solo this May, and now Marvel Comics has released the first look at the young X-Man’s all-new series. The ongoing title will see Jean grapple with her destiny, as well as her potential to become the host of the all-powerful and cosmic Phoenix Force.
“Jean is trying to avoid her older self’s Phoenix curse and the tortured life that comes with it,” Hopeless told CBR in a recent X-POSITION. “In the beginning, Jean won’t know exactly what that means or how to go about it, but she’s dedicated. The series follows Jean as she travels around learning about The Phoenix and preparing herself (trying at least) for the inevitable battle. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store.”
