I just hope this coming story isn't about the Shiar. Broccoli, tomatoes, whatever. Just please, not the bird people again.
Sorry Brevoort, Alonso and Lowe, but Jean Grey is a classic character. She'll outlive you regardless. :)

ANXM#6 is out T.Jean is bonding with Storm and Kitty and is now given Leadership status over the O5
ANX #6 is a bit of a quieter issue. It reminds me of past eras where there would be some downtime inbetween arcs where people would just talk to each other while the next event would get set up. I think people would appreciate this more if more had actually happened in the first five issues. But Mystique is coming and I'm excited for that.
Kitty and Jean are being setup to have a rather interesting relationship. Kitty clearly still has reservations about this whole thing but is setting them aside for the sake of duty. And Storm declaring Jean the leader came a bit out of left field to me. I figured people wouldn't be gun-ho on teen Scott but it seemed like young Hank was going to step into that role.
The best thing about this issue was the revelation that Bendis apparently reads the X-Boards.
Also Bendis acknowledged that all of Jean's family is dead. They could have done more with but I doubt many people want to see Jean waste panels grieving over family members.
So I think just about the only thing that hasn't been addressed for Jean yet is Rachel. Wonder if that'll come in WatX 24?
Jean and Kitty never had much of a relationship so it was odd seeing Kitty try to answer her question. By the time Kitty decided to join the school, Jean was dead and when Jean returned, Kitty was long gone. They didnt do a whole lot of interacting and I wouldnt call them friends. I noticed that when Jean asked if they were, Kitty avoided the question and didnt give her a direct answer. I wonder what she was talking about though when she said Jean was tough on her bc I dont recall an occasion
Someone should run a "Design a new costume for Jean" contest. :)
No face mask, pouches, or covered hair!!!
