    Default Unpublished Art From CC's Phoenix (Rachel Grey) Mini-Series!!

    I saw this posted over on ComicBoards.Com, and thought you guys would like to take a look at it. It's art by Rick Leonardi from the Chris Claremont's unpublished Phoenix Mini-Series which was announced in the Uncanny X-Men #208 letters page and then scrapped. It was supposed to take place between Uncanny X-Men #209 (when Rachel leaves with Spiral) and the Excalibur Special (where Rachel escapes from the Mojoverse and ends up in London) back in the 80's. There's only three pages up there, but it's nice to see what might have been.

    What's stopping them from finishing this, like with the X-Men: True Friends mini?

    Who knows. It's so long ago, that Marvel probably doesn't care anymore. Someone should ask Chris Claremont over at ComixFan about it. In fact, I may just go do that. :)

    The Phoenix limited series still has value. Yes, I remember reading the letters pages as the editors were advertising that the Phoenix limited series was coming soon. It was one of the reasons why Claremont wrote Rachel Summers out in Uncanny X-Men #209; furthermore, he did not want the upcoming Mutant Massacre to be compared to Days of Future Past. That's why Chris Claremont wrote out Shadowcat &, temporarily, Colossus.

    Although Excalibur Special Edition #1 was published in 1987, it did not take away the events of what was going to happen in the Phoenix limited series. In a way, the Phoenix limited series had endless possibilites since the story took place on MojoWorld.

    I would like to see the original Phoenix limited series published by Marvel...

    I'd pick It up. Be nice to see them go back and work on It. Like have Rachel have a flashback to her 1st time on MojoWorld and do this series.

    Maybe the "End of Grey's" storyline in UXM#466 will be a little bit like this story that was going to be published. Claremont is getting to use a lot of his old ideas, be it in "The End" or UXM.
