Looks like the long rumored idea that Jean Grey would make a comeback after this summer’s “Avengers vs. X-Men” is potentially true. According to EW, they will reveal more in their upcoming Comic-Con issue, but for now there’s just a look at this small piece of art by Joe Quesada.
Though EW doesn’t want to offer all the details just yet, they do offer some tidbits that will hold you over for a while.
Yes, this is Jean Grey — as in, the Jean Grey who’s been absent from Marvel comics ever since dying for a second time back in the mid-00s. And yes, she is modeling her vintage blue-and-yellow X-Men outfit from her Marvel Girl days. Does this mean that the fan-favorite character is finally returning? We can only confirm that her presence in the Marvel universe will not be imaginary.
Though what capacity the character is returning to the comics in is still unseen, we now know she’ll be back.
