Jean Grey, formerly known as Marvel Girl, is a telepathic mutant and one of the original members of the X-Men. She is in love with Cyclops which often puts her in a love triangle with Cyclops and Wolverine. At one point Jean was the host to the Phoenix Force and protected the M'Kraan Crystal. She was eventually corrupted by the Phoenix Force and became the Dark Phoenix but was later separated from the Phoenix.
At a young age Jean Grey learned that she was a mutant and that she had the power to read people's minds and to move objects with her mind. Jean Grey and Scott Summers were the first two mutants to be recruited by Charles Xavier into the X-Men. It is possible that Jean knew Xavier her whole life since her father, John Grey, was Xavier's professor while he attended Bard College.
Captured by the Morlocks
When Scott Summers and Jean Grey went on a date they came across a young mutant named Leech stealing some fruit. Humans chased Leech into the subway and Scott and Jean followed Leech to help him. However, this really turned out to be a trap for the humans set by a group of disfigured mutants living underground called Morlocks. When Scott took out one of the Morlocks the others fled. However, one of the Morlocks named Annalee was able to use her powers to make make Scott and Jean fall asleep. The Morlocks then took Jean and Scott to their underground lair.
Callisto, leader of the Morlocks, revealed that she had lured them underground so that she could make Scott her king to rule the Morlocks with her. Callisto also said that if Scott refused she would kill Jean. However, Jean was able to sent Professor X a telepathic distress message.
When the X-Men arrived they saw that Annalee had used her powers to make Jean think she was a child and her daughter. However, Wolverine was able to scare Annalee into releasing Jean from her hypnotic state.
Jean and the X-Men then fought the Morlocks. Storm then fought Callisto and won. With Storm's victory came Jean and Scott's freedom.
Meeting Mister Sinister
An evil mutate known as Mister Sinister found Morph shortly after he was attacked by the Sentinels. Sinister revived Morph and twisted his mind to make him believe the X-Men abandoned him. Sinister then began to control Morph. He had Morph take the appearance of a priest and conduct Scott and Jean's wedding.
While Scott and Jean were on their honeymoon they were attacked by a group of mutants working for Mister Sinister called the Nasty Boys. The Nasty Boys managed to place power negating collars on Scott and Jean's necks and they were taken hostage.
The Nasty Boys then took Scott and Jean to Mister Sinister. Sinister revealed that he had been studying them for a long time and believed that with their DNA he could create a powerful mutant army that would be under his control.
Morph later went to the island and confronted Scott and Jean. Morph revealed that he was actually the priest that wed them and Scott and Jean learned that they weren't actually married. Morph also revealed to Scott that he blamed him for leaving him to die at the hands of the Sentinels. Morph almost killed Scott and Jean but he was stopped by Mister Sinister.
The X-Men were able to locate where Scott and Jean were and arrived at the island to rescue them.
After the X-Men defeated the Nasty Boys they fought Mister Sinister himself. However, Scott was able to convince Morph that he was still his friend and Morph attacked Mister Sinister. However, Sinister was too powerful for Morph to defeat.
Scott was able to free himself from the restraints Sinister had him in. Scott then attacked Sinister with his optic blast. Sinister realized he was defeated and ran off.
Jean, Scott, and the X-Men then returned home.
Return of Mister Sinister
Several months later Mister Sinister returned. Mister Sinister had lured Professor X and Magneto to a tropical island in Antarctica called the Savage Land. Mister Sinister also had the Nasty Boys kidnap Jean Grey and bring her to the Savage Land. Mister Sinister then revealed that he was planning on using their DNA to create an army of super mutants.
Mister Sinister then forced Professor X to send the X-Men a telepathic distress message to lure them to the Savage Land. This worked and several hours later Cyclops and the X-Men arrived at the Savage Land.
However, when the X-Men arrived they destroyed the machine that was negating their mutant powers and freed Cyclops, Jean Grey, Professor X, and Magneto.
Wolverine and Ka-Zar were able to rescue the X-Men and Magneto and in the process destroyed the machine that was negating their mutant powers. With their powers returned the X-Men and Magneto attacked the Nasty Boys. Cyclops then fired his optic blast at Mister Sinister which shattered his body into several tiny pieces.
The Phoenix Force
Mission to space
One night Professor X had a dream about a battle being fought deep in space. In this dream a woman asked Professor X for his help. Professor X then summoned the X-Men to the War Room. Professor X then told the X-Men to sneak aboard the space shuttle, Starcore and go to the Eagle 1 space station. Professor X told the X-Men that if they did not do this the crew of the space shuttle would die.
After the X-Men got into the base they subdued the shuttle crew and put on their space suits. Jean Grey also used her telepathic powers to make it appear to the shuttle's captain, Peter Corbeau, that they were his crew.
When the X-Men got to the Eagle 1 space station they were attacked by a man named Erik the Red. Erik the Red intended to use a laser on Eagle 1 to shoot down an alien space craft carrying a traitor to the Shi'ar empire, Lilandra. However, the X-Men were able to stop him.
The X-Men and Peter Corbeau then escaped Eagle 1 on a shuttle. However, they were headed straight for deadly radiation. Cyclops attempted to fly the shuttle himself but was told that without any training they would not survive. Jean then used her telepathic powers to make Cyclops pass out. Jean also used her telepathic powers to absorb Peter Corbeau's flight training. The X-Men and Peter Corbeau then entered a room that was radiation proof. Jean then used the knowledge she had absorbed from Dr. Corbeau and flew through the radiation belt and returned to Earth. As Jean flew through the radiation a cosmic entity known as the Phoenix Force bonded with Jean Grey.
The shuttle crashed into a river in New York City. All of the X-Men were able to get out of the shuttle before it sank except for Jean. Cyclops frantically looked for Jean and began to think that she had drown. However, Jean flew out of the river and into the sky and shouted "I am Phoenix!" However, Jean passed out and fell into the river. The X-Men then took Jean to a hospital.
Lilandra later approached Professor X at Muir Island and told him that she was the one that sent him the telepathic distress messages. However, they were attacked by Juggernaut and Black Tom Cassidy who kidnapped Lilandra. The X-Men arrived shortly afterwards and went to rescue Lilandra.
Lilandra was taken hostage by Juggernaut and Black Tom because they were being paid by a man named Erik the Red who was a soldier for the Shi'ar Empire. Erik the Red intended to bring Lilandra to her brother, D'Ken, emperor of the Shi'ar, so he could learn the location of the M'Kraan Crystal so he could use it as a weapon. However, the X-Men arrived and fought Black Tom, Juggernaut, and Erik the Red. A short while later another warrior for the Shi'ar Imperial Guard named Gladiator arrived and scolded Erik the Red for his failures. The X-Men then fought Gladiator but he was far too powerful for them to defeat. Back in New York City the Phoenix sensed that Lilandra was in danger and took possession of Jean's body and instantaneously flew to Scotland. The Phoenix was easily able to defeat Gladiator. Jean then revealed to the X-Men and Lilandra that she was the a powerful cosmic entity known as the Phoenix and that she was the guardian of the M'Kraan Crystal.
After defeating Gladiator, Phoenix explained to the X-Men that if D'Ken were to get his hands on the M'Kraan Crystal he could use it to destroy both the Shi'ar galaxy and Earth. Phoenix then teleported herself, Lilandra, and the X-Men to Lilandra's ship which was orbiting Earth. However, space pirates known as the Starjammers boarded Lilandra's ship and were able to steal the M'Kraan Crystal and take Cyclops hostage.
Saving the galaxy
Cyclops and Corsair, leader of the Starjammers, later met D'Ken for the exchange. As Cyclops was about to kill D'Ken, Phoenix and the X-Men arrived. Cyclops and the X-Men then fought the Imperial Guard. However, the X-Men were unable to stop D'Ken from unleashing the power of the M'Kraan Crystal which threatened to pull the entire universe into it destroying the universe in the process.
However, Phoenix was able to contain the M'Kraan Crystal's power and saved the galaxy. This also trapped D'Ken inside the M'Kraan Crystal. Phoenix then took the M'Krann Crystal into the heart of the sun where no one would ever be able to get it and use its power for evil again.
Jean, still bonded to the Phoenix Force, later returned to Earth and her presence was detected by the computers in the Xavier Mansion. Professor X then took Jean to Muir Island so that he and Dr. Moira MacTaggert could try and find a way to separate the Phoenix from Jean. After running several tests Dr. MacTaggert said there was nothing she could do for Jean.
Professor X then read Jean's mind and learned that through Jean's body the Phoenix was experiencing new feelings and sensations that it had not known in its energy form. Professor X then began to suspect that was why the Phoenix had not left Jean's body.
Inner Circle Club
Emma Frost, a member of the Inner Circle Club, later used her telepathic powers to allow Jason Wyngarde, another member of the Inner Circle Club, to enter Jean's mind and use his mutant power to create illusions to fool Jean into thinking they were in love. However, Wyngarde's powers were not strong enough and was unable to control Jean. However, Wyngarde swore that he would keep trying.
Jean later tracked Scott to a night club and saw him with another woman. However, Scott was only there to protect the woman from the Inner Circle. This made Jean jealous and she left with Wyngarde. The X-Men tracked Jean to the Inner Circle Club and fought the Inner Circle. However, the X-Men were shocked to learn that Jean, still possessed by the Phoenix, was helping the Inner Circle.
Wyngarde later ordered Phoenix to kill Sebastian Shaw. However, Jean refused and revealed that Wyngarde no longer had control over her. As Wyngarde fled Jean chased after him. Jean then used her telepathic powers to place Wyngarde in a comatose state. The Phoenix then dubbed itself the Dark Phoenix.
Rise of the Dark Phoenix
The Dark Phoenix then attacked the X-Men. Dark Phoenix was easily able to defeat the X-Men and then she flew into space. Dark Phoenix traveled thousands of light years to another galaxy and flew into the heart of a sun and absorbed the suns energy. A Shi'ar ship was nearby and witnessed the whole thing. The nearby planet was not inhabited. However, the Shi'ar knew that if the planet had been inhabited all life on the planet would have ended with the suns disappearance. The Shi'ar then attacked the Dark Phoenix. However, the Dark Phoenix was easily able to damage their ship. The Shi'ar then contacted Lilandra and told her of what the Dark Phoenix had done.
Dark Phoenix then returned to Earth. During this time the X-Men began to search for a way to defeat Dark Phoenix with out harming Jean. Beast then developed a headset capable of scrambling brainwaves so that the Dark Phoenix could not form coherent thoughts and would cause the Phoenix Force to separate from Jean.
Jean was later drawn to her parents home and went there. However, when Jean arrived she found the X-Men waiting for her. Gambit was able to get the headset onto Jean's head. However, it did not work in separating Jean and the Phoenix because the Phoenix was far too powerful.
Dark Phoenix then attacked the X-Men and nearly killed them. However, Professor X arrived and fought Jean inside her mind. Professor X was then able to trap the Phoenix Force inside Jean's mind.
Shortly afterwards Lilndra arrived. Lilandra was there because she knew the Dark Phoenix had absorbed the energy of a sun and destroyed an uninhabited planet. Lilandra was on Earth to prevent the Dark Phoenix from destroying a planet filled with life. Lilandra then told the X-Men that both Jean Grey and the Phoenix had to be destroyed.
Trial by combat
As the Imperial guard was about to take Jean with them, Professor X read Lilandra's mind and learned of a Shi'ar custom where the X-Men could fight the Imperial Guard for Jean's life. Lilandra then teleported herself and the X-Men to her star ship orbiting Earth.
Jean, the X-Men, and the Imperial Guard were then teleported to an area on Earth's moon with breathable oxygen known as the Blue Area of the Moon. There the X-Men and the Imperial Guard fought.
During the battle Cyclops was injured. This made Jean angry and her anger forced the Phoenix out of the prison in her mind once again turning Jean into the Dark Phoenix. Professor X then realized that Lilandra was right and telepathically communicated with Cyclops and ordered him to kill Jean and the Phoenix. However, Cyclops could not kill the woman he loved.
Jean then used her telekinesis to take control of Lilandra's ship and used its weapon system to fire on herself. At first the X-Men and Lilandra believed that Jean and the Phoenix had perished. However, the Phoenix Force, now separated from Jean, appeared before them. The Phoenix Force told the X-Men that it had lost its way but now wanted to make things right. Jean Grey at this point had actually died from their battle. However, the Phoenix Force told the X-Men that it could take a small portion of each of their life forces and put it into Jean. The Phoenix Force did this and Jean was resurrected. The Phoenix Force then vanished in a blinding flash of light and the X-Men found themselves teleported back to the mansion.
When Spider-Man learned that he was mutating into something that wasn't human he went to the Xavier Mansion to ask Professor X to cure him. However, when Spider-Man arrived at the mansion he was confronted by Jean and the X-Men who were wondering why he had come to the mansion. Spider-Man was able to escape the X-Men but accidentally ran into the Danger Room and was confronted by holographic images of Sentinels. As the X-Men fought off the Sentinels, Cyclops ordered Jean to go to the control room and shut down the Danger Room which she did. Jean was later present when Spider-Man told Xavier of his mutation. However, Xavier told Spider-Man that his work was not to cure mutants but to help them accept who and what they are. Spider-Man became angered by this and left the mansion.
After Beast was captured by some of Herbert Landon's men, Wolverine looked for him but was unable to find Beast. Jean then asked why Wolverine was so worried about Beast and he answered that lately Beast was acting strange. Jean then told Wolverine that everyone has their own private pain and that he of all people should understand that.
Jean was present when the X-Men first arrived to help Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Beast fight a mutated Herbert Landon but left the fight for unknown reasons.
Scott and Jean later had another wedding with all the X-Men and their friends in attendance. However, shortly after the wedding Scott and Jean were attacked by the Nasty Boys who kidnapped Jean and took her to a place outside of the space time continuum know as the Axis of Time. Mister Sinister was working for Apocalypse who had a mysterious plan that involved kidnapping several telepaths and psychics.
Apocalypse later revealed his plan. Apocalypse had kidnapped the psychics and brought them to the Axis of Time so he could use their psychic energy to stop time and then recreate the universe in his image. However, all the psychics were later freed. Jean, along with all the other psychics, used their powers to defeat Apocalypse.

The information in the following section or sections was not present in X-Men: The Animated Series. However, it was part of the canonical comic book series, X-Men '92.
Clear Mountain Institute
When Professor X learned of the Clear Mountain Institute he learned that it was a safe haven for mutants. However, Xavier was skeptical knowing that places like Genosha claimed to be a paradise for mutants but were in fact slave labor camps. Because of this Xavier sent the X-Men to Clear Mountain to investigate.
When the X-Men arrived at the Clear Mountain Institute they met Cassandra Nova who ran the institute and everything seemed fine. But a dark truth about Cassandra Nova was eventually reveled. Cassandra Nova was actually a female clone of Professor X that was possessed by the Shadow King.
Cassandra Nova placed Jean and the X-Men in a device called the Mind Field which Cassandra claimed would cure any mutant of a anti-social disorder. However, the Mind Field was a machine that was created to brainwash mutants.
While Jean was connected to the Mind Field, Cassandra Nova tried to get Jean to unleash the power of the Phoenix Force so she could feed on its energy. However, Jean's telepathic link with Cyclops allowed Cyclops to enter Jean's mind and attack Cassandra Nova. However, Cassandra Nova was able to fight back and she was extremely powerful. Nova captured Cyclops and Jean and threatened to harvest Cyclop's organs unless Jean came to an agreement. However, Psylocke entered Jean's mind and snapped Nova's neck.
Nova's plan was to kill Baron Kelly so she could become the rule of Westchester. When Nova tried to kill Baron Kelly, Jean unleashed the Phoenix Force and fought Cassandra Nova. However, Cassandra was able to defeat Jean.
Professor X was later able to stop Cassandra Nova from taking control of Westchester and banish Shadow King to the astral plane. With Shadow King defeated, Cyclops and Jean left the X-Men to lead a normal life.
Two weeks after leaving the X-Men, Scott and Jean were living in a cabin in Anchorage, Alaska. While at the cabin, Jean told Scott that she accepted that he was done being an X-Man, however, Jean also told Scott that she wasn't sure she wanted to quit the team.
Scott and Jean then went to sleep but later woke up in a mysterious place surrounded by monks. Both of them also had their X-Men uniforms on. Cyclops was about ready to fight them off. However, he was stopped by Jean who had read the minds of the monks and learned that they meant no harm. An old woman then approached them and Jean read her mind learning that she was the current host of the Phoenix Force. The old woman introduced herself as Rachel and revealed that she used the Phoenix's powers to bring Scott and Jean to the year 3992 A.D. Rachel also told Cyclops and Jean that in their future, Apocalypse would return and conquer Earth. Rachel continued to say that Apocalypse traveled to other planets to conquer them and in his absence left Mister Sinister to rule in his stead. Mister Sinister's first act as emperor was to kill half of Earth's population. Rachel then told Cyclops and Jean that she used the Phoenix Force to bring them to 3999 A.D. to save what little world they had left.
Cyclops and Jean agreed to help Rachel. Rachel told them Sinister could be found at Citadel Sinister, and when Rachel took Jean and Cyclops outside they learned they were in the Savage Land.
The journey to Citadel Sinister was long and treacherous. Cyclops, Jean, Rachel, and another mutant named Blaquesmith had to fight their way through the perils of the Savage Land and Mister Sinister's Marauders.
As the four of them made it to Citadel Sinister they had to fight imperfect clones of Jean and Cyclops known as the Essex Men. However, as they made it to safety Cyclops deduced that they were not there to kill Mister Sinister. Cyclops and Jean also learned that Rachel and Mister Sinister were working together.
Sinister revealed to Cyclops and Jean that he and Rachel were working together to create a weapon to destroy Apocalypse. Sinister revealed that he tried to create the perfect being to fight Apocalypse, however, when genetic structure wouldn't stabilize he tried using nano-technology to save his life. Sinister then told Cyclops and Jean that he needed their DNA to stabilize his creations genetic structure. Cyclops refused to help Sinister. However, Sinister told Cyclops and Jean that from the moment they set foot in Citadel Sinister, nanobots were collecting their DNA.
After Sinister was done collecting Cyclops and Jean's DNA, Sinister used the DNA to complete his genetic creation to fight Apocalypse. As an incubator opened out fell a child with a metal arm. Sinister gave him the name Nathan. However, Cyclops and Jean realized that Nathan was actually a young Cable, and in turn learned that Cable was their genetic son.
As Rachel was about to take Nathan with her, she was stopped my Sinister. Mister Sinister knew that Rachel was dying and said that Nathan would be better off staying with him so that he could mold Nathan into the enemy of Apocalypse that he was meant to be. However, Rachel refused to let Nathan be raised by Sinister. Rachel then used the power of the Phoenix to disintegrate Sinister's body. However, this last act drained Rachel of the Phoenix Force and killed her in the process. Without the Phoenix Force anchoring them in that time period, Cyclops and Jean faded away. With both Sinister and Rachel now dead, Blaquesmith decided to raise Nathan himself.
Directly after disappearing from the year 3999, Cyclops and Jean were sent to another time period, this time the year 2099. Right after arriving in 2099, Cyclops and Jean were confronted by the X-Men of that era. These X-Men believed that Cyclops and Jean were sent by an evil corporation named Alchemax to kill them.
Despite how their first meeting went Cyclops and Jean were able to convince the X-Men of 2099 that they didn't work for Alchemax and joined their team.
While training in the Danger Room, Cyclops and Jean were approached by President Doom. Doom gave Cyclops a spell book called the Darkhold and told him that it wanted to go home. Doom then sent Cyclops and Jean back to their own time along with the Darkhold.
When Cyclops and Jean arrived in their own time they were dropped into the middle of Generation X's training session in the Danger Room.
At that time the X-Men and X-Factor were fighting X-Force to save Apocalypse. The X-Men and X-Factor believed that Apocalypse was the only one who could save Earth from Xodus, the Forgotten. However, Cable and X-Force believed that Apocalypse couldn't be trusted. During their fight Jean ran up to Cable and revealed to Cable that she knew he was her son.
Jean later helped the X-Men fight Xodus. It is unknown if Jean re-joined the X-Men after this or not.
Days of Future Past
Because of Senator Robert Kelly's strong anti-mutant stance he was targeted for assassination by Mystique and the Brotherhood of Mutants. Mystique shapeshifted into Gambit and assassinated him in that form. Even though Senator Kelly's death was the result of one mutant all mutants were blamed. After Senator Kelly's death a mutant control law was passed and the U.S. government built an army of Sentinels. The Sentinels then began to hunt down mutants all over the country. Some mutants attempted to fight back. However, the survivors were placed in detention camps where the mutants were killed. However, the Sentinels went out of control and began to target normal humans as well.
Sentinels ruled the future where they would either kill mutants on the spot or capture them and take them to detention camps to be killed.
Jean Grey was captured by the Sentinels and taken to a detention camp where she was killed.
This time line was erased when Bishop traveled back in time and worked with the X-Men to save Senator Kelly's life from Mystique.
Age of Apocalypse
In the year 2055 A.D., Master Mold was rebuilt. Master Mold then had a mutant criminal named Fitzroy travel back in time to the year 1955 to assassinate a young Charles Xavier. Fitzroy was able to accomplish this and because Xavier was killed at such a young age he was never able to form the X-Men.
Because the X-Men were never formed in this new timeline, mutants and humans were at war with each other. This war devastated the entire planet. In this timeline, Magneto lead the mutant resistance against the human army, which also included meta-humans.
In this timeline, Jean Grey was a nurse that treated the mutant soldiers that were injured during battle with the humans.
The timeline was later restored to normal when Wolverine, Storm, Bishop, and Shard traveled back in time to 1959 and prevented Fitzroy from killing Xavier.
As Jean Grey
Jean Grey has the power to read other people's minds.
Jean Grey is also telekinetic. With her telekinesis Jean can levitate objects, people, and herself.
With her telepathic powers Jean can also create a force field made out of psychic energy.
Jean Grey's telepathic powers also allow her to cause amnesia in people.
When Jean was combined with the Phoenix Force it greatly enhanced her own mutant powers.
The Phoenix Force would manifest itself as a flame in the shape of a bird. This gave Jean the power of flight which includes traveling through deep space.
The flames from the Phoenix Force could also be used as a weapon.
The Phoenix Force allowed Jean Grey to survive while in the heart of the sun.
The Phoenix could also transmute matter such as when she turned a tree into solid gold.
In the comics
Jean's mutant powers of telepathy and telekinesis first manifest when her best friend, Annie Richardson, was hit by a car and killed. Jean mentally linked with her friend and nearly died as well. The event left her comatose, and she was brought back to consciousness when her parents seeked the help of the powerful mutant telepath, Charles Xavier. Xavier blocked her telepathy until she is old enough to be able to control it, leaving her with access only to her telekinetic powers. Xavier later recruited her as a teenager to be part of his X-Men team as "Marvel Girl."
While possessed by the Dark Phoenix, Jean Grey absorbed the energy of a sun which caused all life on an orbiting planet to die. Knowing that she had killed billions of lives on that planet Jean ended up killing herself to keep the Phoenix Force from hurting anyone else.
- Jean Grey could not commit suicide in X-Men: The Animated Series since it was a children's cartoon. Instead the producers of the series had Jean destroy an uninhabited planet and in the end the Phoenix Force separated from Jean Grey. Since Jean Grey did not kill billions of people she was allowed to remain alive.
Several years later it was revealed that the Phoenix Force had only taken the appearance of Jean Grey and that the real Jean was in suspended animation at the bottom of a river. Jean was later revived and joined a team of mutants called X-Factor which consisted of herself and the other four original members of the X-Men, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, and Angel.

- While casting Jean Grey in X-Men: The Animated Series the creators of the series had in mind a voice that sounded like actress, Donna Reed.
- In X-Men '92, Cassandra Nova tried to get Jean to unleash the Phoenix Force within her. However, at this point Jean had already been separated from the Phoenix Force in X-Men: The Animated Series. This implies that Jean developed a natural mutant ability that was similar to the cosmic Phoenix Force. Similar to how the Phoenix was an evolution of her own powers in the X-Men film series.
