The X-Men eXplosion eXpands this Spring when Marvel rolls out Jean Grey’s solo series from Dennis Hopless and Victor Ibanez.
Here is how Marvel describes the series:
A vision. A premonition. A warning. The Phoenix is coming back to Earth. It could be tomorrow, it could be years from now. But it’s on its way. Determined to not succumb to the fate that befell her adult counterpart, Jean will fight the future and forge her own destiny. One problem – she’s not ready. Not even close. So, on a quest to save her own life, she’ll travel across the Marvel Universe, honing her gifts under the tutelage of the greatest heroes and teachers. Even that may not be enough. Can Jean ever hope to escape the Phoenix? Or is the cycle of death and rebirth doomed to repeat itself?
In an interview with Marvel, Dennis Hopeless said, “She needs to level up. She needs to become a prepared Jean Grey by the time the Phoenix arrives. So she puts herself through a lot of things to try to get ready for something she can’t really prepare for. And I think a lot of people can relate to that.”
Are you looking forward to the X-Men eXplosion this Spring, or is Marvel giving us too much, too fast?
