    It seems that Jean/Phoenix joins with Magneto in X3, but why would she do this? From the trailer it seems at though Jean is bitter and angry at Professor Xavier for repressing her powers, but why go to the extreme of harming humans and total mutant supremacy? Jean never showed signs of wanting that before? And it seems like an extreme way of getting revenge on Xavier. She's all powerful, so why does she NEED Magneto?

    Is she being manipulated by Magneto the way Mastermind manipulated her in the comics?

    Could Magneto of promised her a way of reviving Scott if she joined with him? And when she finds out he was lying, she turns on him?

    Any opinions on this would be welcome, I like hearing all different ideas and then finding out who was right when the movie comes out!

    B/c she wants to destroy the cure, I guess. Dark Phoenix doesn't want to lose all those powers she has and the cure is the only thing standing in her way.

    She is extremely unstable after "reawakening". She's confused and lost and vulnerable as well. Magneto knows that she is quite powerful, and can be easily manipulated by using Xavier's transgressions as a tool to turn her to his side.

    Jean is...a bit nutso at the moment, so Magneto is using that to his advantage.

    But couldn't she do that on her own? She's Phoenix after all! I'm pretty sure with her powers that if she simply wanted to destroy the cure, then she would just do it? Besides, I'm pretty sure the X-Men would want the cure destroyed as well seeing as it affects them, so why not stick with them?

    the whole deal i guess , is that some of the Xmen understand that they must fight also to protect the cure , for the mutants who want really to be cure..

    It's a choice..everybody should have it..the Xmen are heroes..

    Magneto tells her that nothing would have happened if not by fear of those who are different. Had her powers been accepted when she was a child instead of blocked, Cyclops would be alive. So, the conflict between humans and mutants must end, and by the looks of it (powers blocked, the cure), tolerance is not a choice.

    I think Magneto is manipulating her. We've heard that she's only with Magneto a small portion of the film. I think he must be lying to her about something. Convincing her to join him. "She is a God among insects"

    I think it has something to do with Cyclops and I think perhaps Psylocke is playing a part in all this. Maybe she is convincing Phoenix of Scott's demise when actually they found him at the lake and took him. Maybe Scott breaks free and when Jean sees him, she turns on Magneto, who lied to her.

    I think there's more going on here. Everyone is so thrilled with this script and movie, and I don't think we'll be disappointed!

    I don't think she gets any in this film. Bigger things are going on than her libido.

    Jean: Charles, you lied to me! You...fear me!

    (then that great line from TAS) "You once told Jean Grey that a teacher's greatest joy is to be surpassed by his pupil. Enjoy!

    She demolecularizes Xavier.

    Later at Alcatraz, Jean sees Scott and snaps out of it. Magneto is immediately afraid and turns to Phoenix. Scott and Phoenix share a moment. But she is hanging on by a thread. They kiss, then she shoves him away and Kills the brotherhood, Magneto, and herself in a big blaze of glory.

    hehehe. :)

    or...

    "Jean...are you on your period or something?"

    part of that line was from the last episode of Niptuck.

    Besides... this is how pissed she'd be if I said that...

    best new sci-fi word of the decade award goes to.... 'demolecularize'

    Why does Jean do this to everyone? Why can't she just heat their molecules up to an ungodly level causing them to combust and then explode.... that would be cool-er!!

    I want to know...where did the phrase "demolecularize" come from, anyway? Am I the only person that knows it's called atomization?

    There's got to be more than her joining with Magneto than just power.
    Jean never seemed like a power hungry person to me. Even Xavier said as much at the end of X2.
    I also don't like the idea of her being responsible for Cyclops' death (if he dies at all), and blaming others for that. It doesn't seem like Jean, even though she's not completely herself.
    Also, having her living in an illusion wouldn't work, since we've seen it before, and also because we're led to believe that she's an incredibly powerful mutant, and having her being under the control of a less powerful mutant, would deminish Phoenix' power.

    Personally, I hope there will be some kind of relationship to the cure. There's got to be a reason why those to storylines were brought together.

    Didn't it come from that review of the leaked script?

    ...Or maybe Jean could just tell the bonds between your cells to stop working and you would just melt into a horrible gooey blob.... yeah, now that's atomization! :up:

    No definitions were found for demolecularization.

    Suggestions:

    - Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    - Search the Web for documents that contain " demolecularization"

    It's made-up, definitely.
