Imagine “A Christmas Carol” but the ghostly encounters are all of X-Men past!
Jean is taken to three moments in the original Jean’s life: her birthday at the Xavier Mansion, a battle with Magneto’s Aocyltes from the X-Men first Blue and Gold era, and a clash between Jean, Scott and Emma in the NEW X-MEN era. Jean learns the spirit of the original and dead Jean has joined her on her quest.
The original Jean has been dead since the NEW X-MEN era epic PLANET X. Jean was resurrected by the Phoenix Force. Before becoming Dark Phoenix again, Jean convinced Wolverine to kill her then she ascended to The White Hot Room – imagine a Heaven for Phoenix hosts – where she became the White Phoenix of the Crown.
In GENERATIONS: THE PHOENIX, time displaced young Jean met the original Jean via The Vanishing Point.
