    Jean wasn't fridged for Cyclops. She was killed in DPS by editorial because she killed the broccoli people. She died and stayed dead after Morrison because editorial, very publicly, wanted to "fix" the mistake of resurrecting her after DPS. Both of major her deaths were caused by editorial interference and had nothing to do with any other characters.
    The second dead for sure was fridging. The phoenix thing is a distraction, but she died to give Cyclops some manpain and character development (in his case more to regress)

    That would be a successful wager.

    It's the same thing a subset of her fans does with Scott and Emma whenever they can, so it was bound to happen eventually. Tribal mentality is a strong part of internet forums and won't go away. Humans are just like that.

    You keep saying this. It doesn't get any more true when you repeat it. Unless she was killed exclusively (and for no other reason) than to motivate or develop Cyclops, it wasn't a fridging.

    thread title "Is Jean Grey really Ororo's best friend?"

    real thread two people complaining about Cyclops. Isn't that forbidden? derailing the thread into something it has nothing to do with it?

    It was the biggest reason, probably the only one. Quesada justified not bringing Jean back pbecause Scott already had other girlfriend

    There was any number of reasons.

    1) Cost of battle. (Obvious)
    2) Death as Drama (Obvious)
    3) Breaking the Story Breaker (Since Jean written at full Phoenix power can resolve most plots by snapping her fingers)
    4) Unresolved Death (where Jean was supposed to come back later, but later writers dropped it for one reason or another)
    5) Worfing (Show how dangerous Magneto is by killing Jean as Phoenix)

    There are plenty of reasons it happened. You've latched onto one that has almost no evidence behind it solely to hate two characters for the better part of 20 years.

    I mean, who else would be a contender as Storm's best friend?

    Joking aside, Kisinith's post explains it pretty well.

    You're right, people just hijack threads to make them all about bashing Scott and Emma. It's completely different. Now that people are doing the same to Jean, it's breaking the rules.

    Scott and Emma are separated characters you know.

    But you're right, how come nobody can criticize Jean?
    She has done plenty of dumb stuff

    Yeah, that's why I said it's disheartening when it happens to any character and their fans. Thankfully not all humans are like that. I love mutants!
