Marvel led off the connection with this little teaser here.
Kind of standard for a Marvel teaser. Black background, words on fire, “It’s Coming”. Thankfully they didn’t make us wait long to see what it was.
The Phoenix is returning? I can live with that.
But look at those creators! Wolverine and the X-Men writer Jason Aaron, Avengers writing Brian Bendis, Captain America (and former Uncanny X-Men) writer Ed Brubaker, Iron Man (and former Uncanny X-Men) writer Matt Fraction, Fantastic Four writer Jon Hickman, and then superstar artists Olivier Coipel, Adam Kubert, and John Romita Jr.
This is Marvel’s version of what I like to call a “stacked deck”. All it’s missing is current Uncanny X-Men writer Kieron Gillen!
But is this the return of the entity on it’s own, or is this the return of Jean Grey?
