    The purpose of the X men was completely subverted in this It was so cool Their actions are genuine and heroic, but their foes have also manipulated the world into thinking that they are the good guys too They ve hidden themselves rather cleverly in their crime, so when the X men attempt to bring down such a syndicate, it makes them look like the bad guys for a change It only took the most minor of manipulations to turn fear and respect into hatred and animosity And when that s paired with T The purpose of the X men was completely subverted in this It was so cool Their actions are genuine and heroic, but their foes have also manipulated the world into thinking that they are the good guys too They ve hidden themselves rather cleverly in their crime, so when the X men attempt to bring down such a syndicate, it makes them look like the bad guys for a change It only took the most minor of manipulations to turn fear and respect into hatred and animosity And when that s paired with The Phoenix, who has just been released from the shackles of Jean grey, it makes for a rather intense, and fiery, plot Jean Grey has become her power The person, the individual, has practically been destroyed in the process All that s left is fire and destruction She s not the kind of woman you want to mess with So, who could stop such a powerful force Well the rest of ...

    Midway through reading this classic Claremont tale, I understood its significance to the X Men mythology instantly, and I also wondered if it had some kind of impact on the role of the female superheroine in comics back then and today That s because I consider Jean Grey in this story to be a very empowered representation of what a comic book heroine can become and be undone for at the same time I would like to try and touch upon that subject matter in this review.This is quite possibly the mos Midway through reading this classic Claremont tale, I understood its significance to the X Men mythology instantly, and I also wondered if it had som...

    Flashback To be honest, I actually first heard of the famous The Dark Phoenix Saga through an episode of the 90s X Men cartoon series and that was probably my favorite episode of the entire series Now, I had the opportunity to read this story in its original comic form and I was totally blown away Chris Claremont had a huge reputation of being the best X Men writer in history and after reading this saga, I am starting to believe that and John Byrne s illustrations clearly define the tr F...
