When in public Jean chooses to look presentable as opposed to some others such as Emma Frost - who choose to show as much flesh as humanly possibly without getting the authorities called on them. This ranges anywhere from a pair of blue jeans and a presentable shirt/skirt combination.personality
To start things off, Jean is an extremely caring woman. Whether this goes for her teammates, family members, or even someone that some may view as a rival(a la Emma Frost) she is willing to risk everything for them. A perfect example of this is during the Sisterhood arc of Uncanny X-men, when Emma was nearly killed by the Sisterhood Jean essentially resurrected Emma's astral form after it'd been through a point of no return.extraordinary
Whilst she is caring this doesn't mean that she can't have a bit of a mean streak. Jean isn't easily angered, but when she is angered it can range anywhere from a simple sigh that shows that she's annoyed by someone to an extreme rage to which she'll likely attack the person that caused said rage(of course, this is only if she's fighting someone) but that's about as far as her anger goes, it's not like if she gets really really REALLY angry she turns into Dark Phoenix or something.
She'll do anything to protect her friends, too. A perfect example of this is in PhoeniX: Endsong when Jean blocks Dark Phoenix access to the telepathic rapport that she shares with Scott, so that Dark Phoenix could NOT find him and harm him. She's willing to give everything up to keep almost anyone protected. Another example(again from Endsong) is when she was willing to allow Logan to kill her so that Dark Phoenix couldn't find Scott, or anyone else within the 'Astonishing' team at the time.
Her views on killing are slightly complex. She has killed at times, in fact she has the memories of the Phoenix which destroyed an entire universe. But Jean herself has only killed two villains during her time as a super hero. Her view on killing is probably similar to that of Iceman's, Beast's and Angel's. Those three have no worries about killing as they have all done so before(Jean as Phoenix, and the others on the Champions and Defenders)
- Telekinesis - Jean's main abilities are psionic in nature, and the most notable of the two psionic abilities happens to be her telekinesis. Jean's telekinesis is vast -- unlimited, some would say. She can manipulate the matter around the object and use it in the usual "lift and move" fashion. But this isn't the extent of Jean's abilities. Jean also has a form of 'Telekinetic Sensitivity'. this means that she can feel if someone gently touches what she is holding with her telekinesis.
- Telepathy - Jean's telepathy was the first of her mutant abilities to manifest. Her telepathy manifested when her childhood best friend, a girl named Annie, was hit and killed by a car. Jean felt Annie die that day and went into a deep depression, thus her telepathy was blocked by Professor Charles Xavier. When Jean returned to the X-men she regained her telepathy. Her telepathic abilities are nearly as vast as her telekinetic abilities. With her telepathy she can send psi-bolts at her enemies - which can, if Jean allows it, have nearly crippling effects. She can also read and speak into the minds of people within a mile radius unless she is in Cerebra. When she is in Cerebra she can contact almost anyone over the entire world. She was also able to read Dust's mind and figure out her location when not even Feral could. She was also aware of Cipher's presence in the institute and gave her special training so she didn't have to reveal herself.
- Cosmic Pyrokinesis - Due to Jean's connection with the Phoenix Force, she was given a form of Cosmic Pyrokinesis. This Pyrokinesis is... Different from other forms of it, in the fact that unless Jean wants it to burn something it CAN NOT burn anything, and simply dances along whatever surface that catches ablaze. This is also how the Phoenix 'cleanses' of anything that isn't right, through use of said Pyrokinesis.
- Like any other mortal being, Jean can die by normal means such as being killed and such. This also means that she can succumb to illness and disease as easy as someone else, too.
- Jean's telepathy can not pass some telepathic shields, though that isn't really often.
Jean Grey is the youngest daughter of Professor John Grey, at Bard College History Department in Annandale-on-Hudson, and his wife Elaine Grey. Jean was playing with her friend Annie Richardson when Annie was struck by an automobile. The experience of the accident caused Jean's powers to manifest. She was so disturbed by this that she isolated herself because she could not control her new abilities.
When Jean was eleven, a psychiatrist suggested to her parents that they consult Professor Charles Xavier, who was a telepathic mutant. Professor X informed Jean and her parents that Jean was in fact a mutant. Her parents had never considered the possibility that Jean could be a mutant. Professor X brought her to his school in Westchester County New York, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. He then taught her how to operate Cerebro. Jean then, in the form of the Phoenix, touched Scott Summers' mind as he slept in an orphanage. For Jean's own good, Professor X dampened her powers using a series of psychic shields, or blocks, so her powers would only manifest at levels she could handle as she matured. When Jean reached the age of 13, she started to manifest telekinetic powers, and Professor X began instructing her in their use.
When Professor X declared that Jean had reached mastery of her powers (her telekinesis), he recommended to her parents that they should enroll their daughter in his school. The Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters, presently known as the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, was secretly a school for mutants, and also serves as the X-Men's headquarters.
Jean became the fifth member of the X-Men and the first woman to join the mutant team. The other members of the team were Scott Summers (code named Cyclops), Henry McCoy (code named Beast), Warren Worthington (code named Angel) and Bobby Drake (code named Iceman). Jean herself took the code name Marvel Girl.
The team became active in fighting other mutants (and humans) who threatened peace on the planet. As time went by, the team's relationship grew tighter and they came to think of themselves as family. The original X-Men remained together saving the world for many years, and they became renowned for their exploits. Unfortunately the X-Men were never accepted by society the same way other superheroes were due to public fear and distrust of mutants, and this prejudice has ever remained a problem throughout the team's history.
When the alien force named Z'Nox attempted to invade the planet, Professor X released most of the psychic shields on Jean. He hoped, due to her current maturity level in addition to his years of tutalage and training, that she could handle the amount of power she now had access to. Professor X was then believed to be dead and Jean in effect took on some of the roles he used to fulfil. She continued to use her telepathic and formidable telekinetic powers to aid the X-Men.
Jean fell in love with her X-Men teammate Scott Summers (Cyclops). Both of them were very shy and slow to show how they really felt for each other, but they eventually revealed how much they both loved each other. Later, when Professor X recruited new students into the school, the other original members, except for Cyclops, left the school to follow their own paths. Cyclops continued his relationship with Jean. Jean at that time worked as a swimsuit model while Cyclops worked as a radio announcer. Their relationship survived countless challenges, finally leading to their marriage.
A few years later Cyclops became possessed by En Sabah Nur and was released of his influence when Jean used her advanced telepathy to separate the both of them. However, Jean and Scott grew apart after this as Scott felt he didn't know Jean anymore. This drove Scott into the arms of Emma Frost and they began a telepathic affair. After Jean's death, Scott continued his relationship with Emma, much to the dismay of other X-Men like Shadowcat and Rachel Summers (who had become the new Marvel Girl in honour of her mother).
Scott proposed to Jean, but she kept on declining due to the memory of him being married to Madelyne Pryor, after he thought Jean was dead, which caused a lot of turmoil in Jean's mind. She gradually came around and after some deliberation, Jean then proposed to Scott. Finally their marriage was consummated and they also accepted Rachel Summers, their daughter from a parallel reality, into their lives.
During their honeymoon, they went to an alternate time line to raise Scott and Madelyne's son Nathan Summers (later known as Cable). During their return, Jean adopted the new codename of Phoenix to credit the entity and Rachel since she was believed to be dead. Also because of this, Jean adopted a green costume with a yellow mask. However, it was revealed that Rachel was only missing due to events that happened along with Apocalypse's premature death.
Apocalypse and Cyclops were then fused during a battle, which led Jean to switch powers with Psylocke. the switch increased the powers of both women leading to stronger and additional powers for both. With the help of these powers, Jean was able to separate the spirits of Scott and Apocalypse.
Jean also dated Warren Worthington III (Angel), causing confusion about Jean's real feelings towards Scott and the aforementioned X-Man. This led to some arguments between the two X-Men, both of whom admired Jean.
After joining the X-Men, Wolverine also fell in love with the telepathic mutant. Even though his love for Jean was intense, he would respect Jean's choice and love for Scott. Jean would talk to Logan about her marital problems and Logan helped the couple reconcile.
t some point, due to the bond they've shared since Jean's childhood, even Charles Xavier developed a greater affection for Jean. The Professor decided to keep it a secret, since he felt that Jean would reject him due to his physical handicap and because he was her longtime mentor. This affection led Charles to transfer his powers to Jean at one point, and to also leave the Institute after her death. Onslaught revealed that Xavier had affections for Jean when he invited her to tune into the Professor's hidden thoughts.
The Original X-Men team left for a mission to Krakoa, which lead to their capture. This forced Professor X into recruiting another team of mutants to rescue them. This team became known as the New X-Men. Once again, Jean and the other members left the team, but not Cyclops, who believed that he belonged with the X-Men. Scott's decision upset Jean. However, Jean held on to her connections with the X-Men, especially being best friends with Storm. Cyclops, Wolverine, and eventually Jean Grey became part of this new team of X-Men.
During a romantic night for Scott and Jean, three X-Men (Jean, Wolverine and Banshee) ended up being abducted by the Sentinels. They were taken to an abandoned SHIELD orbital platform under the command of the anti-mutant activist Steven Lang, who planned to unleash a new generation of Sentinels.
The Space Station was then during the rescue mission made by the other X-Men and Dr. Corbeau, which led to them having to abandon the station immediately before it was destroyed. They escaped the space station aboard a space shuttle. The X-Men realized that perhaps the only safe place on board during re-entry was in the rear compartment, but someone still had to pilot the shuttle.
Jean volunteered and telepathically contacted Dr. Corbeau for instructions on piloting the ship. Upon re-entry, Jean's psionic shield's were overcome and she was about to die along with everyone else on board. At this time, the remaining blocks which Professor X placed in her mind gave way and she was able to unleash her powers to their full extent and save all on board. The ship crashed into a bay of water and Jean appeared to telekinetically reform her body within the water.
Jean became the Phoenix and and unimaginably more powerful than ever before. As an example of how powerful she had become, she was able to heal the M'Kraan Crystal to prevent the universe from destruction. In doing so, she almost single-handedly saved the entire universe.
Mastermind psionically attacked Jean in the form of illusions, confusing her by altering her perception of history. He made her believe that she was an aristocrat and that she was Mastermind's wife and also the Black Queen of the villainous Hellfire Club. Jean then lost control of her now totally unleashed powers which caused her to become evil, spreading tragedies and fighting her friends. When she temporarily gained her own consciousness back, she used her powers to commit suicide rather than kill everyone she loved.
After her death on the moon, Jean experienced an afterlife called "White Hot Room," where her soul was awakened and welcomed by death to help her understand the Phoenix Force before she was sent back to Earth. Jean found herself on top of a floating tower in a cosmic realm and wondering why she was not dead.
Jean's corpse was then awakened by the Phoenix Force, causing her dead body to dig itself out of the ground and rise. Her body was then rejuvenated by the Phoenix Force, creating the White Phoenix.
Jean believed that every colour of the Phoenix has a special meaning. While dressed in a White Phoenix outfit, Jean surmised that there were three phases of the Phoenix: Green being good, Red being evil, and White being unknown to her at that time. Later, during the Phoenix: Endsong saga, she discovered that the White Phoenix meant that she and the Phoenix Force were one in the same. She eventually became White Phoenix of the Crown, the strongest version of the Phoenix Force yet seen.
Many years after Jean's death, the Avengers discovered the pod/cocoon containing her body, which had been resting on the ocean floor off the coast of Jamaica. Not realizing what it was, they brought it to Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four for further study. Jean then woke up and emerged from the cocoon, but could not remember anything of her recent history, including her encounter with the Phoenix Force. The Avengers and the Fantastic Four helped her to recover her memory. After that, Jean discovered that she had lost her telepathic powers, but that her telekinetic abilities had grown even stronger.
Jean and the other founding members of the X-Men -- Cyclops, Beast, Angel, and Iceman -- had an emotional reunion. They then became aware of the rising anti-mutant movements in the country. They could not believe that the existing X-Men team had actually begun working with Magneto, so the five of them decided to form a new mutant team called X-Factor. Jean herself went back to her original code name of Marvel Girl.
Jean and Scott's reunion was by far the most difficult for all involved. While Jean had been 'dead,' Scott Summers had met, fallen in love with, and eventually married a clone of Jean that had been created by Mr. Sinister. The clone was created by using a small amount of the Phoenix Force rejected by Jean, and was intentionally meant to be a failure for Scott. The clone called herself Madelyne Pryor. Later on, Madelyne became the villainous Goblin Queen and was defeated after a battle with Jean.
Jean's telepathic powers were regained after her battle with the villain Psynapse.
Onslaught confronted Jean and told her that he could show her Professor X's hidden memories, including his affection for her. He also told Jean that he could give her back the power of the Phoenix Force. Jean then confronted Juggernaut in the Z'Nox chamber that shields the two of them from detection. They planned on unlocking Onslaught's identity, yet when Onslaught muzzled her, she returned to the Z'Nox chamber to warn the other X-Men members about Bishop's vision from the future.
In a story arc called Operation: Zero Tolerance, Cyclops was implanted with a nano-bomb. During these events, Jean used her telekinetic abilities to protect Cyclops until the day the nano-bomb could be removed by surgery. Jean then resumed wearing the green costume based upon her incarnation of the Phoenix and began manifesting 'firebird' effects whenever she used her telekinesis, much to Scott's concern.
pocalypse captured the twelve most powerful mutants whom he believed would determine the fate of humanity. The twelve included both Jean and Scott. Using a machine, Apocalypse was able to absorb all of their powers, making him immensely formidable. Then, the powerless Scott Summers shoved the other X-Men apart from Apocalypse to prevent the creation of another evil entity. Jean then detected Scott's psyche within Apocalypse and told the X-Men not to harm him. Most of the X-Men believed that Scott was dead, except for Jean and Cable. With the combined efforts of Jean and Cable, they were able to separate Scott from Apocalypse.
The Xavier Institute reopened and Jean Grey became its Headmistress alongside its Headmaster, Scott. When the U-Men attacked the Institute, the students aided Phoenix by repelling their attack. Meanwhile, Jean again manifested the Phoenix Force. During a battle against Cassandra Nova, Jean used Cerebra to splinter Xavier into the minds of other mutants around the planet. Cassandra in Xavier's body activated Cerebro causing Professor X to regain his body.
Emma had a telepathic affair with Cyclops. Tipped off by the Stepford Cuckoos, Phoenix rampaged through Emma's mind in retaliation. Emma was shot by Esme while in her diamond form, causing her to shatter into pieces. Phoenix discovered that the Cuckoos had been lying and repaired Emma's body telekinetically.
The Phoenix Force formed and was assaulted by a Shi'ar warship, which caused it to splinter throughout the galaxy. The Shi'ar also planned on killing Jean Grey as they believed that Jean was the heart of the Phoenix.
During the Phoenix's arrival on planet Earth, it discovered that Jean was dead. With full determination to resurrect Jean, it consumed her body and forced her to dig herself out of her grave, and hence Jean was resurrected. Neither Jean nor the Phoenix Force were truly prepared for this resurrection, which caused the Phoenix to quickly go insane and become the Dark Phoenix. Jean stated that the resurrection was wrong and the entity was "sick, blind, and has forgotten."
The X-Men started formulating tactics on how to contain the Phoenix Force, but things went from bad to worse when the mutant Quentin Quire ( Kid Omega), who had a notable crime history, returned with plans to resurrect his dead girlfriend Sophie Cuckoo using the Phoenix entity. The Shi'ar then arrived as well and planned on killing the Phoenix while she/it was still unprepared and weak.
The X-Men encountered Jean at the North Pole, where Logan would repeatedly attempt to kill her. When Wolverine confronted her and asked if he is talking to Jean or the Phoenix, she replied "I am always Jean Grey and always the Phoenix." Phoenix managed to regain control of herself and her sanity and sealed herself in ice. Phoenix then used Cyclops' optic blast to empower herself. Emma Frost then attempted to fool the Phoenix by telling the entity that Scott no longer loved Jean. Phoenix was momentarily distracted by this, which allowed Cyclops to quickly trap himself, Emma, and Phoenix in a Phoenix Egg Containment Unit created by Beast. Emma then offered herself to the Phoenix Force, and was immediately consumed by it.
Kid Omega then appeared, broke open the containment egg, and asked the Phoenix fragment to bring Sophie Cuckoo back to life, which the Emma Phoenix did. Although Kid Omega had succeeded in his goal, Sophie decided to stay dead rather than return to life to be with Kid Omega, since she was still disgusted by him and his previous actions. Meanwhile, Emma Frost was still consumed by the Phoenix Force after being inhabited inside the Phoenix Egg, but because she was only an Alpha Level mutant (unlike Jean Grey who is an Omega Level mutant), she was not capable of joining with the entity for long. To save Emma's life, Jean Grey forcibly separated Emma from the Phoenix. The Phoenix was surprised that Jean was able to accomplish this feat without any assistance. Jean then stated that she and the Phoenix were one and that she would always be the Phoenix. Cyclops then instructed the Stepford Cuckoos and Emma Frost to link all the X-Men together telepathically to sustain the Phoenix 's sanity. As they were helping her to keep her sanity, Jean Grey/Phoenix transformed itself into the White Phoenix.
But then the Shi'ar created an event horizon and Cyclops found himself "somewhere" with the White Phoenix. She then asked Scott to show her his eyes and they both bathed within his optic blast. After Cyclops awoke, he found himself and the other X-Men alive and back on Earth, but Jean Grey was nowhere to be found.

|Hello, my name is Jean Grey.|
Jeans voice echoed in the minds of her patients as the psychologist made the room a bit more... Fitting to the patients taste telepathically, after all when something suited her taste Jean was much more calm. The patient was a teenage girl - around Jean's age when she'd first joined the X-men. What...? Where am I? Jean smiled faintly and nodded her head, preparing to answer the young girls question. You're on the Astral Plane. You see.. As most already know, I am a telepath. I've made the room fit your personality and likes. Did I get it right? Jeans voice whispered, a calming tone evident. Err, yeah. It's perfect, JUST perfect. An obvious distaste was in the girls voice. Jean frowned a bit and crossed her legs. Could you show me exactly what's making you feel this way, Stacy? She said, faking a smile.
Stacy groaned out of frustration and glared at the telepath. I don't have to show you anything, bitch! You would NEVER. EVER understand, mutant freak! Jean sighed and looked directly at the girls astral form. You.. Have to understand all I've been through in my life. I've... Died, three times. I know a terrible feeling when I feel one.. And I feel one from you, Stacy. So please, let me help you. Stacy seemed as if she was even more creeped out by the fact that her Psychologist had died three times prior. So freaked out, that she jumped up from her seat and forced Jean to lose the telepathic connection with the girl. Jean blinked her eyes out of the telepathic signature and looked around the room - and she saw Stacy standing on the ledge of the building outside the window, preparing to jump. Jeans green eyes widened.
"Shut up, you mutant bitch!" Stacy said, gently pushing herself off of the ledge. Jean screamed. "STACY NO!" Running over to the window, she saw the girl hit the pavement, making Jeans knees shake. [i]No... No..... This..This couldn't have happened." She said, looking out the window she heard cackling. Jean noticed The Green Goblin, a red recolor of him with an outdated glider, Spider-man, Robin the Boy Wonder, and some other man she didn't recognize. "God dammit.." She grumbled, her telekinetic signature surrounding her body and she transformed the molecules in her clothing to resemble her old X-men uniform.
Stepping out the window, Jean floated in the air towards the fight. A grim look was on her face, she was a bit unsettled that just as her patient committed suicide - in her office for that matter. "May I ask what the hell is going on, here?!" Turning her head to Peter, she smiled gently. "Oh, and hello, Peter."
*has Emma bitch slap Jean*
