It had been speculated widely that the original Marvel Girl, Jean Grey, later Phoenix and ex-wife of Cyclops, may return at the end of Avengers Vs X-Men. What with all that Phoenix shenanigans and all.
Well, in the most recent digital issue, Cyclops even built a walking, talking simulacrum of the woman to have a bit of a chat with. On the moon.
And there’s that collection X-Men: The Wedding of Cyclops & Phoenix TPB listed on Amazon which seems rather opportune.
But now Entertainment Weekly has made it clear.
Not a dream, not a hoax, not an imaginary story. She’s back and in this fragment of art, she’s drawn by Joe Quesada, in her old Marvel Girl costume.
The Return Of Jean Grey…
Here’s that Amazon listing in full, as well.
