Jean Grey is coming back–finally. While we currently have the time-displaced younger version of Jean in the Marvel Universe, the original Jean is making her return after over a decade.
Jean died heroically in Grant Morrison’s run of New X-Men. The running joke was she would return from the dead immediately. That didn’t quite happen. Jean’s return will be handled by writer Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors, Punisher) and artist Leinil Yu (Secret Empire).
Editor Mark Paniccia made the following statement:
“Matt came to us with a really interesting and unique approach to bringing Jean back. It’s not what we expected, and plays to Matt’s biggest strengths as a storyteller. This is very cool mystery building to a mind-warping climax. And it has plenty of what you’d expect from an X-MEN epic of this magnitude. Action, romance, sacrifice, lots of X-Men and five great artists.”
