From the start, Marvel has promised Phoenix Resurrection would restore the adult Jean Grey to her place alongside the rest of the X-Men, so it's pretty much apparent that the storyline would resolve with her once again fighting against injustice and intolerance with her old friends and family. What fans might not have expected is the curve ball the first few pages of the series' final issue has thrown at them.
SPOILER ALERT: The final page of CBR's first look at Matthew Rosenberg and Leinil Francis Yu's' grand finale teases the return of the Dark Phoenix. While it's most likely a temporary speed bump on the road to Jean's full-on return to the Marvel Universe, a true return of the malevolent cosmic entity would certainly be a pretty major way to close out Phoenix Resurrection.
