“When the Phoenix Force found Jean Grey, she was successfully concealing her telepathic and telekinetic abilities from her family, friends and neighbors,” reveals Age of X writer Mike Carey on how life unfolded for this Jean. “But the Phoenix isn't something you can easily hide—or easily assimilate—when you're dealing with it alone, with no guidance or support and no one else to turn to.

There no longer is a city of Albany in New York, just a crater, which has been preserved in perpetuity as a monument to the disaster.

It looks to me that Jean is going to be back. I think she going to be different but the same and we all have to remember that Jean did come back as the White Phoenix. I myself hope that they intertwine this Jean into the main stream story's but not in the Uncanny story but maybe in the Legacy story line.

I love it there bringing back one of they "GREATEST" hero's of all time... Jean Grey. I love it. This is looking like one of the years best story's to read out of any comic.
