Phoenix Eye Effect in X1?

What exactly is her reaction like? Does she look alarmed or blissed out?
I still think she didn't want Cyclops to shoot in case he hit Wolverine or Rogue. Even Cyclops didn't shoot the machine, he shot Magneto as a last resort.
These theories are getting weirder and weirder...

That's what she looked like. ;)
 
Wasn't the original plan/intent of the team as mentioned by Wolverine, "If i don't make it, atleast you can still blast the damn thing." And that's why they allowed Wolverine to go instead of any of the others. Blasting Magneto was via Scott's volition at the last minute and wasn't planned at all.

So when Scott said "I've got a shot, I'm taking him" he meant 'him' as in Magneto but Jean thought he meant Wolverine, as originally planned, which is why she said "Not yet".

What i'm saying is that i don't think Jean stopped Scott because she was enjoying feeding off of the powers of the machine but because she still thought that Logan et al could still be saved.

That said, i'm not disputing that Jean was affected by the machine (as i have always been lobbying for/telling people about that 'Phoenix' moment in X-men 1)
 
She probably wasn't hesitating because she was feeding off the radiation, but can't a boy who loved his easily aroused, power lusting Dark Phoenix dream?
 
yeah, actually the orginal point of this thread wasnt about Jeans reaction. In X2 when Jean used her 'Phoenix Powers' her eyes lite up and all that fun stuff...after watching X1 recently I could have sworn I saw something like it in her eye after Cyclops destoryed the machine...


BUT...I looked at it again on the DVD and I cant say I see it again...
 
so that means the radiation caused her to develop the phoenix stuff?

*scratches head* im confused lol
 
yeah, i think its pretty much a fact that it was the radiation. She had the weird reaction afterwards, and then in X2 Cyke mentioned that after the Liberty Island Incident her powers have been flaky...

I STILL CANT SEE ANYTHING!

I never said Scott planned to shoot Magneto, and i thought he said "I've got a shot, I'm taking *it*" I know Wolverine told Scott to blast the machine regardless, but even so, Jean would want to be as careful as possible with Logan and Rogue's lives. I thinks he wanted to wait as long as possible to give Logan time to overpower Magneto and rescue Rogue without the danger of cyclops' beam.
I saw jean's eyes go a little bit red but so did Storm's and that was when Cyclops shot his beam off and red light went everywhere.
I will watch it again though.
 
It can't get any more specific than this...to see what everyone is referring to, watch the film from exactly 1 hour : 26 minutes : 39 seconds to 1 hour : 26 minutes : 44 seconds (according to the time frame on X-Men 1.5). Within those five seconds, you will see this:

Notice how the light shining into her eyes brings out the highlights of her hazel eyes. When her eyes move out of the light, they return to normal, as seen here:

I believe this is what Spider-Phoenix was talking about and now, without a doubt of certainty, you are as caught up as everyone else. I hope.

My post was in response to pejo's not yours.

and i thought he said "I've got a shot, I'm taking *it*"

Was it? I haven't seen the film in a long time. :p

But that still doesn't change the fact that Scott didn't mean to shoot either the machine or Wolverine as he obviously thought that blasting Magneto would produce the best results.

Actually, forget everything i've said. Let's give pejo his dream ;) :p
 
Actually, (considering I watched the movie earlier to get those pictures) he said "I have a shot! I'm taking it." :p

actually, "I'm taking him" won't make sense so it would've been "I'm taking him out" if he even said 'him' so just a lapse of judgement on my part.

My fault

I get my dream?! My slippery dream? My dripping, wet dream?! Oh, thank you! :D

well...i've been known to show kindness to my inferiors. Now fetch me my bunny slippers and i want it two minutes ago :o




:D
 
LMAO

Sorry, i can't come up with any witty comeback right now :p
 
LOL@pejo...

Yeah, it was just reflected light in her eyes..


-TNC
 
*jumps up and down*

I've got one. I've got one. :D

Heh.

I've always pegged Jean to swing *that* way, what with her supposed friendship with Ororo and we all know about 'Ro's sexuality. Yukio anyone :p



Do i get a cookie, Mistress Phoenix? ;)

And if you're gonna say I. Am. Phoenix. one more time i'm gonna hit you with my bunny slippers on the head.
 
Jeannie's like me and get's her kicks where she can find them. Underneath that veneer lies a sexual deviant, I just know it! :D

I suppose you can have a cookie...I mean, I have a bunch lying around here, so I don't see how giving you one could hurt. ;) Just don't call me Mistress anymore...it giving me a complex. LOL

And I'm not going to shout "I Am Phoenix!' Remember, Chris isn't writing me at the present. :p;)

That's a damn shame ;)
 
Maybe I should change my avatar to a black box that reads "I'M A DUDE!" :rolleyes:

Well...where is it?



:p
 
Ok, this is an old thread, i know. BUT

Isnt this a better explanation for the phoenix
taking evidence from all 3 movies.

1 ) Jeans powers are weak in Number 1
2 ) Her powers are uber strong in Number 2
3) What could have happened in Number 1 which triggered the power boost in number 2
Hmmmm

Well, although it is mentioned in X-Men 2 that her powers havent been the same since Liberty Island, I think its more likely NOT to be the radiation that caused her power boost.

X3 Explains that she always had those powers, that they were sealed away by prof x, cause he feared what a Kiddy running round with apocalyptic powers would do to somone who didnt hand over pocket money.

Thats why, I have determined that the power boost in X2 came NOT from the radiation, but from CEREBRO!!!

Eg - Professor X put PSYCHIC blocks in her head, to stop her accessing the powers in her subconscious, She puts on Cerebro when the prof is in a coma, and WAAAM BAMMM, She gets a big whammy, her mind not ready for the stress from cerebro, cracks, and the psychic blocks fracture.

While the Writers didnt build on this idea, i think its a better idea than the radiation one. Since X3 sorta blows the whole, "You havent been the same since Liberty Island" thing to dust.


To recap

She had super powers
Prof x Blocked her powers as a child
She was weak and pathetic
Put on Cerebro
Lots of pain, Dizzyness, head ache, and possible Diahorea
Mental blocks fractured
Alkalie Lake - Oh oh, here comes a big big wave
INSTINCT Takes over, which is somthing that tends to develop along side Evolutionary traits. And she holds the water back. (Instincts guide us in how to use our new found abilities)
Boom- Shes submerged in water, for gawd knows how long, its unclear if she swam to the surface to get dinner or what, or if she just ate raw fish from the Lake, but she went in with short hair, and came out with a good 3 months growth.

Alas, she dies in x3, after tearing Alcatraz Island to pieces.

Have a look at my music video for clips from x-2 and x-3
Look for videos on Youtube by Baaleos.
 
ever since liberty island you've been different
could also be a reference to her using cerebro
it was in the same time as liberty island
so it wasnt nessesarily about the machine
i think the mental blocks were beginning to break since x1
from using cerebro etc.
and they keep breaking so in x2 she is more powerful
and the end of x2 they break away completely
and in x3 she is without the blocks
