WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1. The issue, by Michael Rosenberg, Leinil Yu, Gerry Alanguilan and Rachelle Rosenberg, arrives in stores December 27, 2017.
It appears the the X-Men won't just welcome back the long-dead Jean Grey in the upcoming Phoenix Resurrection miniseries. CBR's exclusive look at the first issue reveals a second major reunion may also take place -- with the original Wolverine.
Though it's possible the Wolverine in the preview is merely an illusion, he seems real enough. It also just makes sense for the recently-resurrected Logan to factor into Jean Grey's return. And while writer Michal Rosenberg doesn't directly confirm Wolverine's involvement, he does tease some big surprises.
"Yeah, there’s a lot [of X-Men in the series]," Rosenberg recently told CBR. "And we definitely have some real surprises too. Some folks are going to be real surprised."
"I think we made a good introduction, but for those long time fans there are going to be some real deep cuts," the writer added. "A couple of the nods and moments in the book will definitely get the X-Men historians going. I think we made something pretty cool and not at all what people are expecting. And that’s scary as hell, but it’s a real thrill. I can’t wait for people to read it."
Check out the first issue's solicitation copy, along with CBR's preview, below. Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1 will be on shelves on December 27, 2017.
