    We all know she coming back someday. So what power level would you like to see her return with?

    1. Possessing NO mutant abilities

    2. Possessing a single strong mental ability - Telepathy – see X-Men Revolution (starting with X-Men #100) or Telekinesis - see early X-Factor 1-75, Volume 1

    3. Strong telepathy and telekinesis - This is the 90’s version of Jean Grey who possessed telepathic abilities over a limited area; enabling her to read minds, project her thoughts into the minds of others, alter the mental perceptions and memories of others, stun the minds of opponents with telepathic "mental bolts." This version of Jean was ranked as the second most powerful telepath on the planet, behind Professor X.

    This version of Jean Grey also possessed telekinetic abilities enabling her to levitate and manipulate living beings and inanimate objects psionically. She possessed enough finite control to thread a needled, hold several tons of matter in mid-air, generate concussive force bolts and create protective shields.

    4. Limited access to the Phoenix Force - Enhanced psionic powers; include telepathic abilities to sense, broadcast and detect thought patterns over a large area, alter the physical or mental perceptions of others, manipulate the functions of the human body, cast human minds into the astral plane, and telekinetic abilities to levitate herself or other objects, propel or manipulate them however she wishes, stimulate individual molecules to create heat, the limited ability to rearrange the molecules of matter, and generate concussive force or protective shields.

    5. Full Phoenix Mode - Telepathy on a global or universal scale, the ability to exist in any environment without harm, project force bolts of incalculable power and create force fields. She also possesses vast psionic ability to manipulate time, space, matter, and energy for virtually any purpose.

    3. Middle ground and Jean hardcore fans won't whine too much.

    Can you imagine if she ONLY was either a world-class telepath or telekinetic?

    The horror.

    I vote for middle ground in both abilities. Prof X should be top dog in TP and Cable should be the best TK. Jean on the other hand, should be powerful in both, but not so much she can take out teams by herself.

    No.3

    No.1& No.2 won't be able to bring out her character among all the X-Men and No.4 is hard to define 'limited', No.5 is utterly unacceptable.

    If you go with number 5, chances are a few months later this question would be asked again.

    My vote is for 90's Jean or Jean with only TK, like how she started. Full scale Pheonix makes things pretty dull.

    Jean should return with strong telepathy and strong telekinesis. I think it would be interesting to see her temporarily return with no mutant abilities... but that storyline would probably result in another rehash of the Dark Phoenix Saga in which she evolves from a being with no power to a being of unlimited power that must be stopped.

    It's boring to see the Phoenix saga rewritten over and over. Create something new for the character already!!!!

    None. Hell, she should never come back. Ever.

    They've never been able to keep Jean in the comics because none of the writers can handle her powers.

    Thus, keep her dead. Or if you really want her out there, permanantly ban her from ever having powers again.

    Early 90s Jean is my Jean. But I wouldn't mind her coming back even weaker...I'm tired of uber Jean. I'd enjoy seeing her reverting back to the old days when she would telekinetically fling paper clips at Juggernaut.

    How about the power to stay dead?

    now what would that accomplish? She might as well be plain human if that were the case

    I Lol'd.

    Quite honestly, I want her back, only with major power downgrades. Like No.3 would be nice.

    But I want her to return but with different life, like she moved on. Want her to have a new lover, and yes no Logan nor Warren. That would be interesting.
     
  19. Cyke'd Guest

    I agree about the new life/moved on sort of thing. No Logan, No Warren, No Scott. One of the biggest problems i did have with the X-Comics was the nonstop love triangles involving Scott and Jean so just washing away with any links to those would be nice. How about Elixir? i hear he likes the older women

    I guess let her be single won't hurt anybody. (But seeing the writers can't even get rid of the most pathetic relationship of all time- Romy, I don't think they care much about the 'move on' thing.)

    X-comics have been focusing on the romantic relationship part for too long, it will be great to see they shift their attention a little on the friendship and teamwork part.

    Hey i'm friends with a lot of my X's and i think it could be an interesting dynamic to have Scott and Jean be JUST really close friends. Personally I think there is a lot of possibility there.

    Number one is an interesting possibility.
    I'd like to see her back, and generally I'm totally against ressurections *coffcolossuscoff*, but in Jean's case it makes sense. She's The Phoenix, for god's sake, that's what phoenixes are supposed to do.
    And I'd love to see her with Logan, but writers in general get a kick making Logan's life miserable. It would be really nice seeing both of them having an affair, after so many years of sexual tension/mental attraction or whatever.

    I'd like her to return somewhere between #3 and #4. That's basically where Rachel is at, right now.
