    So, Rachel is currently “trying this new thing where [she] can call up a little bit of Phoenix Fire from the multiverse” despite Echo being the current Phoenix avatar…

    Now, tell me Jean isn’t sharing her gifts with others. Yes, ma’am. ☝🏻😌

    Jean Grey in the words of Walt Whitman, from his masterpiece Leaves of Grass, "Song of Myself" (51 and 52):

    "Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)"

    "Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, Missing me one place search another, I stop somewhere waiting for you."

    Giving Rachel her flowers. It's been too long since we've seen her in action!

    This is a very creative use of her multiversal powers, moving through the timelines on command. This gives me great hope for future feats. The original Fury are no joke and will take a lot of firepower to handle.

    Rachel has history dealing with a Fury, this one created by Jamie Braddock. From Uncanny X-Men 447 by Claremont and Davis, Rachel builds a black hole and utilizing the combined powers of the X-Men, exiles the monster.

    Braddock Manor was destroyed in the process as usual. It's a cute full circle situation now that Rachel is living at the Manor with the Braddocks.

    I'm ambivalent about Rachel using anything Phoenix related TBH, but Rachel accessing the multiverse and drawing on her connection has nothing to do with Jean sharing "her gifts". It has everything to do with the fact that Rachel is unique in the multiverse, her unique mutant ability of chronoskimming, and as guardian of the timestream the ability to draw on elements of the multiverse to aid her. Not everything that Rachel does can or should be attributed to Jean.

    As it should be simply because Rachel isn't her mother (unlike Emma's Stepford clones) and while Rachel shares a base powerset with her mom their mutant abilities significantly differ enough in their application that they are both unique unto themselves respectively. Whereas Rachel is capable of physically Chronoskimming, and creating micro-blackholes -- Jean can use her mutant abilities through time by projecting her astral form to different points in the timestream and draining others' psychic energy to enhance her own innate psionic powers. But, still, at their respective cores, they are both Telepathic/Telekinetics.

    Exactly. While they share a similar base set of abilities, they use they completely differently.

    I mean Rachel also does this, and this is primarily an ability we've seen Rachel only do until the recent X Deaths of Wolverine. I'd say there are other applications of tp Jean uses that Rachel does not which are stronger cases than Jean chronoskimming once.

    Unless I missed a few things over the years, AFAIK, Rachel hasn't actively drained others' psychic energy to enhance her own as of yet.

    Regarding her chronoskimming and status as timeline guardian, I'm glad the data page and moments from KoX #4 and #5 weren't forgotten but actually picked right up here in the first issue. I like that they're dealing with old school power-level Fury's which will allow Rachel (and Betsy) to unleash, especially if the Everforge starts cranking them out. I believe there was a WIP cover showing the ladies surrounded by a bunch of them.

    I'm actively ignoring anything that involves being a timeline guardian or her all-at-once, friends-with-benefits, relationship with Betsy.

    The preservation of the “sacred timeline” isn’t new and predates Uncanny 462. In fact that scan above is from the same issue where she explains that she’s an anomaly, which has been picked up again now.
