It's the same reason some artists can't decide whether the original X-Men costume was yellow/black or yellow/blue.
Isn't that what also happened with Jim Lee's Storm costume? Wasn't it supposed to be all black with white streaks to indicate sheen only to be misinterpreted as being white?

Is there a chance Jean Grey lost her powers after HOM?

Which could support the messiah baby being Jean!... The Phoenix had to find a new way to be reborn, by literally being 'reborn'

There's at least two things wrong with that possibly happening. One, Jean wasn't on earth at the time, and only mutants on earth were affected by HOM. Two, if that were the case, then the baby would not be Jean, but a physical embodiment of the Phoenix itself, and not Jean, since she still has her own body.

No powers wise...Mutants with the same ability can't be exactly the same...

I think it's Morph...Because he can shape-shift into animals as well...

Well, yeah. Mystique can only change into human beings who are roughly her height (no giants or dwarves). Morph can change into animals and inanimate objects.

If Jean were to come back right now..what would be her first words towards her fellow X-Men about their current state of affairs?

(This is just a fun debate sparking question.)

Wiki says she was one of the mutants depowered by M Day, so.

She'd be like: WTF!!!! Although she probably knows about it since she's the White Phoenix of the crown or whatever.

Im not sure if this is a stupid question but: why does Rogue have a white streak in her hair? Is it a design thing like that Storm has white hair or did it happen because of something? And some mutants have strange hair colors (storm, polaris, pixie...) is this just passed off as a side-effect of their mutation?

Rogue has always had her white streak, but never explained. Storm's hair is actually a familial trait running through her bloodline, but everyone else you listed is usually passed off as an effect of their mutation. Just a note: though you didn't mention her, Surge dyes her hair blue, not a mutation.

its just the way she turned out. Its not an effect of her mutation. When I was younger I knew a kid with a patch of white hair and we used to tease him and call him Rogue...lol

Do you like Psylocke better with the telekinetic Katana or the blade/kinetic energy things she created on her hands?

hmmm never thought of it, but she most likely could create it on her left hand, but used it on her right bc she is right handed. That would have given her more control over it

Oh, because I read here, or somewhere else, someone explaining her powers and they said she could create a psi-blade from her right hand. And I was thinking she could create it from either so it got me thinking.

I think she can do it from either hand, because I'm sure I've seen panels of her using it from her left, but she can only form one at a time, and since she's likely a right handed person, she tends to favor her right hand when fighting with it.

Ah, makes sense.

Another question:

Most mutant's powers have something to do with their mutation, like Cyclops, Storm, Toad, Beast.....etc, but there's some mutant codenames that I have no idea what they have to do with the character's powers. Like Mystique, Rogue, Gambit ad Psylocke (I get she had PSYchic powers but whats up with the "locke" part?). Can anyone explain what the meaning of their codenames are? I have a lot more but cant remember them right now.

Mystique is the most obvious. Has to do with the mystique of her character. You never know who she is and her past is foggy as hell.

Gambit's name might have something to do with how sly and cunning he is b/c it's a chess move.

Webster's definition of "rogue":

1 : vagrant , tramp 2 : a dishonest or worthless person : scoundrel 3 : a mischievous person : scamp 4 : a horse inclined to shirk or misbehave 5 : an individual exhibiting a chance and usually inferior biological variation


Mischievous, perhaps

I was thinking more the fact that since she can't touch anyone, that nobody would want anything to do with her. Vagrant or tramp would make sense.

Either way, that chick needs to perk up lol

Rogue as a verb means to destroy. Rogue , by nature of her power destroys what she touches.

Rogue as an adjective means no longer obedient, belonging or accepted. Thats pretty much how Rogue felt after her powers manifested
