Phoenix: Stop Rising And Stay Down
I’ve been over how I feel about “Phoenix” a few times, but here’s the tl;dr version
- The best interpretation of “Phoenix” is that it was “Jean Grey’s” actual power not some entity that took her place or inhabits her
- Making it an entity to bring “Jean Grey” back was an okay way to have their cake and eat it too even though it undercuts the impact of the original story
- Every appearance since then has made the whole thing stupider make less sense
- Also on an barely related note get rid of the “young past X-men” (the original X-men were brought to the future and it’s dumb) and say there from an alternate reality. Also either bring back the real adult “Jean Grey” or leave her permanently dead.
There’s more to say about “Phoenix” and the rest of “Avengers 1,000,000,000 BC” , but I’ll save that for tomorrow. Speaking of which, tomorrow these guys talk even more about the Prehistoric Revenge Squad. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
What you guys think about “Phoenix” though?
