Title: Jean Grey (2017-) #2
Author: Dennis Hopeless, Victor Ibañez (Illustrator), David Yardin (Illustrator)
Reading Date: May 24, 2017 to May 26, 2017
Book Summary: TELEPATHS UNITE! The Phoenix is coming! And determined not to become its next victim, JEAN GREY will enlist the help of its previous hosts…but will RACHEL GREY, QUENTIN QUIRE and HOPE SUMMERS have the answers she's searching for?
Book Review: Although Beast tries to assure Jean that the Phoenix is no where near in sight, but Jean believes otherwise and decides her best course in finding the Phoenix is to use Cerebro. As she finds herself in communication with Colossus and the others, she locates Hope, who is undoubtly in trouble. Jean heads out to her rescue and so do the others.
I am a bit disappointed in Jean in this one. She acts more like a brat than a leader. I understand her concerns when it comes to the Phoenix entity. After all, her older self was consumed by the entity and has died multiple times. Still instead of focusing on the inevitable, she should focus on becoming stronger. Perhaps if she does become a bit more stronger her fight against the Phoenix may just work in her favor.
This is just the second issue and I am not saying it is bad. The character just has her moments. I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out and seeing the showdown between Jean and the Phoenix.
