    One could think Claremont was trying to be romantic on his own bizarre way and somehow trying to homage Jean too.

    He sucked at it though.

    Retcon?!? There was no retcon...

    Maddie being a clone of Jean was a retcon

    A retcon that made so much sense given the fact that she was a copy of Jean since day one.

    First Class as one of the worst? Excuse me?

    Why isn't the Ramos costume here at all?

    Iíll start with the obvious disclaimer that fashion is just opinion but....

    I donít think Ramosí was thaaaat bad. Itís the EXM one right? In many ways If was a mix of the Phoenix and marvel girl costume, which are both pretty popular ones.

    I think jeanís Jamaica flag ripoff (xmen blue) was worse personally - at least when the 80s jacket was worn. But to each his own.
    Your favorite superhero- the one you visit these forums to talk about. Would they talk to others the way you do on this message board?

    See, I loved the X-Men Blue look - especially without the jacket. I didn't HATE the Ramos look, but it's definitely one of the biggest stinkers that Jean has ever worn.

    It's not the 90s look at least.

    2. Comics Infinity Gauntlet wins, but MCU Gauntlet loses to Comics Phoenix. They nerfed what the Gauntlet can do worse than they nerfed Thor or Hulk for the movies.

    3. Phoenix's base power is WAYYYYYY above Captain Marvel. Phoenix is the 14th most powerful being in the entire Marvel combined universe. Captain Marvel isn't even top 75. Neither is Scarlet Witch. Strange as the Ultimate Sorcerer Supreme was 27th. Thor at his most powerful is 34th. Phoenix at base level is capable of annihilating entire galaxies without effort. Remind me when Captain Marvel could do that.

    4. Dark Phoenix is WEAKER than the Phoenix at max power. The Phoenix at max power (White Phoenix of the Crown) is a reality warper on a cosmic level.

    5. Galactus beating the Phoenix in a straight up fight was the rough equal to Squirrel Girl beating Thanos, or a normal missile putting She-Hulk in a coma. Galactus is 22nd on power chart, a full scale below Phoenix. It's the rough equal to Apocalypse beating Odin. Hell, Rachel as Phoenix beat Galactus, and that's with a weaker connection than the one Jean has.
    Phoenix at base levels destroying galaxies is hyberbole. Thereís no official rank of cosmic entities per say. The Phoenix has also been beaten by two Thors. Itís not all powerful. Powerful, bit not all power. They wonít have any problem using Phoenix in the MCU. She was used in the Fox franchise, and again she was not shown anywhere near the power of the Infinity gems. In the Dark Phoenix film she was comparable to Captain Marvel and thatís how weíll see her in MCU.

    Oh, in the comics Phoenix is so powerful it was beaten/vaniquished by a Wanda spell No More Phoenix. Granted Hope help hands with Wanda and let it happen, but they were still able to defeat the Phoenix.

    Most recently Jeen beat the Phoenix and made it resurrect her. We see why sheís the prime host. She is able to own it like nobody else, in more ways than one.

    The X-men would also be better if she never existed.

    Making Maddie look exactly like Jean was one of his worst ideas.
