While Onslaught easily overtakes the rest of the X-Men, Jean escapes to the war room and sends out the distress signal that Bishop found in the future.
After a massive battle against Jean and the rest of the X-Men, Onslaught escapes to carry out his plans.

To support her in this goal, she assembles a team including Nightcrawler, X and Namor, but is unaware that her actions are being observed by Cassandra Nova.
The time travel also caused her suppressed telepathic powers to awaken much earlier in her life than they were supposed to. The All-New X-Men team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to rescue Jean from the Shi'ar homeworld, but Jean would end up awakening a new power that she never had, in which she is able to absorb massive amounts of psionic energy from others and combine her telepathy and telekinesis, which she used to defeat the powerful Gladiator, leader of the Shi'ar.
Blue[ edit ] Jean ends up approached by Magneto, who offers her and her team to join him in preserving Xavier's dream by defeating those who oppose it. While on a solo mission against the Wrecking CrewJean receives a vision that the Phoenix Force is coming back to earth.
Jean feels even less taken seriously when Beast begins examining her for signs of delusional hallucinations. Jean then meets with other former Phoenix hosts ColossusMagikRachel SummersHope Summers and Quentin Quirewhere the latter uses his powers to show her how the aftereffects of bonding with the Phoenix Force has individually affected each of them. Time-displaced Jean attempts to ask Phoenix questions about the Phoenix Force but she dodges Jean's questions.

After witnessing Phoenix use her cosmic powers to fight off Galactus from consuming a defenseless planet, Jean contemplates warning Phoenix of her fate until an encounter with The Watcher stops her from doing so. The Watcher commends Jean and tells her that choosing to not change her future means that her ultimate fate is in her own hands whether or not she ends up hosting the Phoenix Force back in her present.
Phoenix Force (comics)
As Jean returns to her present, Phoenix cryptically states that they will meet again. With the Phoenix Force now on Earth, the team realizes it's going to take a lot more than they have to stop it.
And while the young Jean is able to wound the Phoenix with the aid of Cable's Psi-mitar, the Phoenix seems just too strong for anyone to overcome. Teen Jean eventually managed to push the cosmic force far away from her friends and allies, where a final battle can take place. However, both Jean Greys learned how wrong they were, as the Phoenix was never coming for teen Jean, at least not like they believed.
Actually, the Phoenix wants the adult Jean, but to do that it needs the young Jean out of the way. Thus, the force floods her body with flaming psychic energy, incinerating her from the inside out, leaving only a skeleton. However, after dying, the younger Jean found herself somehow in the White Hot Room despite not being a Phoenix host.
Angry, the Phoenix attempted to destroy her using mental manifestations of its past hosts, created from pieces of their life forces left in the Room. Jean realized that she could control the White Hot Room against the Phoenix wishes and commanded the cosmic entity to resurrect her, which it did so in order to get rid of her.
X-men Supreme: Dissecting the Relationship of Jean Grey and Wolverine
In any event, as part of their celebration of the wedding, Marvel did a special issue of "What If? The issue had three different stories in it. One of them was what would have happened had Jean and Scott gotten married when they were still young result: Cyclops quits the X-Men and joins the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and the final one was what would have happened had Jean left Cylops for Wolverine after she became the Phoenix result: Wolverine can't calm her down while they're fighting on the moon and Dark Phoenix destroys the universe.
In that issue, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Archangel and Cyclops run afoul of a young mutant with seemingly unlimited powers who is causing a scene at the same base that Magneto attacked all the way back in "X-Men" 1.
He seems to be able to alter reality at his whim. He sends Wolverine and Jean Grey into a different reality, basically a representation of the mutant's own brain, and as he is being attacked by Cyclops and Archangel, the area that they are in is getting smaller and smaller until it seems like they are going to be reduced to nothingness.
As they are near seeming imminent death, they share a kiss. Instead, once Archangel and Cyclops defeated the guy, his power defaulted Wolverine and Jean Grey back to this reality. He then kills himself. Wolverine and Jean Grey don't talk about what happened in that other reality. In "X-Men"Wolverine decides to go visit her, noting that for whatever reason, she has touched his seemingly cold heart.
He is shocked, then, to see that all of his teammates are already there in the waiting room.
He was not used to the idea of people actually caring for each other. This was pursued again in "X-Men" by Chris Claremont and guest-artist Tony DeZunigawhen Jean makes a lighthearted comment that Wolverine has to get used to being part of a team. However, she doesn't realize that she's the very reason that he's even considering being part of a group again, and he's not yet ready to accept that sort of situation.
As we'll see later in the list, though, Claremont later retconned Jean into having a lot more interest in Wolverine than was initially shown. Jean threw herself into the middle of the battle to save Wolverine.
Jean was tortured by the sight of Wolverine slowly dying in front of her. He puts on a brave face and even kisses her, which she returns, even as she secretly weeps for her friend. She then tells him that he's still the best he is at what he does.
