Marvel at the Beauty of this Dark Phoenix Cosplay


Of all the mutant ladies, Jean Grey is one of the most recognized and loved. Jean Grey has roots in the original X-Men comic books as Marvel Girl, but eventually came to be Phoenix and Dark Phoenix over the course of the story. She is an omega-level mutant with top-tier telekinetic and telepathic powers. Beyond her powers, Jean is an important figure in many X-Men’s lives as a lover, a mother, a wife, and a friend.


One of the oldest mutants, Jean Grey was introduced in X-Men #1 back in 1963. Her claim to fame in the X-Men world is based on the short Phoenix Saga and Dark Phoenix Saga storyline. The story has been told and retold in various mediums from comic books to cartoons to movies to video games. Jean Grey has made returns to the story several times as both Phoenix and Dark Phoenix and it has almost become a running joke within the comic books.
