Hi everyone. I am new and one of the aweful Jean Grey fanboys. ;))
I have to confess that I really start to enjoy AvX with the latest developments...The Phoenix Five are an amazing and entertaining idea and should stay for longer than issue 12. Do you guys agree? But I think they should change up the Phoenix hosts ASAP and use the Summers family as the new hosts to increate the Phoenix into Jean Grey's myths and in the general continuity of the Marvel universe. It would make a lot more sense if Rachel, Nate Grey, Cable, Cyclops and Hope became the new Phoenix gang and change up the status quo of the Marvel Universe for some years. The general concept and the costumes are just too amazing to lose this idea! I generally love when a universe is changed up (but I still can't believe they ruined the fundament of the X-Men universe, when M-Day happened. What made the X-Men most exciting for me was the fact that mutants actually became a new species that fights for acceptance in society...It was a great parable for so much. well, now they are Inhumans part II and fighting for survival...horrible change up and I still cannot understand why they seem to keep this change? It was fine for some years but now we need to go back to the fundament of the X-Men idea. I hate classical super heroes stories and the X-Men have been so much more.....)
However, I think Marvel needs to connect Phoenix to Jean Grey again and bringing her genetic offsprings into the mix is the best way to do it!
Phoenix stories without Jean is quite pointless in my eyes...but maybe we should understand the Phoenix Force as a transcendental Jean Grey who became completely Phoenix and lost humanity completly? Haven't Emma Frost ask Jean in some Morrison comic if she is still able to be human at all? Or at least that will be my explanation to make the momentary story part of Morrison's X-Men continuity! (and I am still crying every night that he is not coming back to the X-Men and bring us some adult and intellectual fun that is more than Superhero A fights Superhero B...)
