    It's worth to buy uncanny for Jean?
    I honestly dropped it after #4 because it was so boring and while Jean was leading, so much is happening that at least for what i have read Jean isn't being really important.

    This would have been a good call back to the movie.

    I'm french and I grew up reading Spécial Strange where every two months you could read 2 Uncanny X-Men and 1 Spider-Man Team-up with french covers!

    This is the Jean I grew up with, beautiful isn't she?
    I think the moment you discover a character defines the way you see him, you discovered Jean by Young Jean and I discovered her as Phoenix in the Byrne episodes and all the other Jean compare to her. I remember I disliked Jean in X-Factor first feeling her disminished (It took me a while to understand that Phoenix was very specific)!
    Now we have the actual Jean, a newly resurrected Jean in a troubled world.
    And X-Men Red was a great way to reintroduce her to us! I like this idea of a free Jean, free from the Phoenix, free from always having to restrein herself, and finally free to acknowledge her own power and place in the Marvel universe. It's been a loooong way!

    I like that Jean Grey is taking a more pro-active part and I hope that Cyclops's resurrection doesn't make her take a backseat, I'm not even sure Jean and Scott should be on the same team! They're at a time where they both should define themselves individually (just like Cyclops was in Whedon's run), it doesn't mean their love shouldn't rekindle but I think we should see it be rebuild raher than offered us as a given.

    I like how she used Cassandra Nova to make a statement in front of all the superheroes community. She used the manipulator Cassandra (I like how Taylor wrote her, so clever!) to show the Avengers that she could have killed her but chose another way, the healing way. And made the Avengers stand by the X-Men in front of the United Nations effectively officialy ending years of distrust and sometimes open warfare between the two teams. For her first story arc since her resurrection!

    Of course she will eventually make mistakes, and she shouldn't be perfect, but I hope she will take the place of the major player she always should have been.
    Welcome to CBR, I am French as well and seeing those "Special Strange" covers bring back so many memories!

    Which issue ends this Nate storyline? I assume they are teleported to another world hence begins the Marvelous X-Men.

    If the current Uncanny arc is actually about anybody it's the set of X-kids they picked for it. The adult X-Men are basically dropped in to do and say the things more or less on autopilot.

    The only main X-Man who's had some actual development is Warren and...the less said about that the better.

    Jean punking Apocalypse with rocks in the background while Betsy does the important psychic work was kinda funny, tbh.

    Yes, for me too! I have put 2 others in the Storm Thread!
    I'm not fond of her new costume, though! too much shoulderpads for me, reminiscent of the 90's where Jean was too often seen as xavier's nanny!
    I remember her sometimes having enough and showing sabertooth and poor Mellencamp what they could awaken but for the most part she was pretty bland!
    Now she's at a moment where the writers can take her in new directions easily and I hope at one time to see her serving as an Avenger, it would do so much for Mutant recognition, much more than Alex or rogue!

    Don't lose hope, I'm sure we'll see some great things this year for Jean.

    Hopefully, but it'll be at least 6 months till we get stories of her in 616 unless she makes gueat appearances in other books during Age of Xman

    Tbh I think Jean dealt with Apocalypse specifically bc she was the only one that was able to. No one else was strong enough. I just wish that were the primary focus of the issue, Jean vs Apocalypse would have been more interesting than whatever last issue was.

    Also: it looks like Age of X-Man is going to be in Legion's mind or something. So our X-Men will have their memories coming out of it.

    At least she's being used. After having her gone for so long, it's just nice seeing her in books...mostly because some of her appearances have been less than stellar *eyes that Typhoid Mary abomination*

    Well I don't think Age of X-Man is an actual AU, like the Ultimate Universe or even the original AOA. Everything seems to point out to it being more of a House of M situation where the 616 characters are trapped on this new world without remembering who they really are. So technically Age of X-Man Jean should still be our Jean, and I've liked Thompson/Nadler's work on Cable and X-Terminated, so I have faith that Jean will be well-written on it.
