Jean Grey is one of the original X-Men in both the film franchise and the comic version. She was recruited by Professor Charles Xavier to join his school for gifted students. He would train Jean to control her mental powers and further develop them to an increased level.
Powers and Abilities
Telepathy gives Grey the ability to read minds, and plant thoughts into the minds of others. Later she would be able to have the ability to actually control minds by the power of suggestion. Jean could manipulate the minds of others to stop behavior, overwhelm an attacker or to create stealth ability. Jean would develop her power to a level close to that of her mentor Professor Charles Xavier.
Telekinesis is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind. Grey possesses this power to an incredible degree. Jean could levitate matter and even give herself the ability to fly over short distances.
Jean Grey sacrificed herself to save the rest of the X-Men when they crash landed a shuttle craft following a battle with Magneto. It was this sacrifice that allowed Jean to be transformed into the Phoenix.
After tapping into the Phoenix Force, Jean’s mental powers are magnified to an extreme level. She could manipulate both time and space. Jean became one of the most powerful mutants in the X-Men and was able to control the Phoenix Force to her maximum benefit. Jean seemed to lose control of the Phoenix and caused the dead of millions in the Shi’ar empire. The Phoenix Force actually made a clone of Jean and used it to survive. Jean was placed in stasis and was not killed when the Phoenix died.
Jean would have an ongoing relationship with fellow X-Men member Scott Summers (Cyclops) and their children would shape the future for the X-Men. Their daughter Rachael is the mutant who sent Kate Pryde back in time to stop the Assassination of Senator Kelly in Days of Future Past. Their son Nathan would also travel into the past to help stop the threat of the mutant menace Apocalypse.
The events of Days of Future Past have altered the mainstream timeline and Jean Grey is alive once again. Her death in The Last Stand was reversed by Wolverine’s time travel to alter the future. There is a chance that Jean Grey could appear in future X-Men films or join a possible spin off team.
