Marvel Comics has officially announced that the original, adult incarnation of Jean Grey will make her return in Phoenix Resurrection this December.
The five-issue Marvel Legacy limited series will be written by Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors, Punisher) with art by Leinil Yu (Secret Empire), and will reintroduce the original, adult version of Jean, who hasn’t been seen in quite some time.
“Matt came to us with a really interesting and unique approach to bringing Jean back,” said senior editor Mark Paniccia. “It’s not what we expected, and plays to Matt’s biggest strengths as a storyteller. This is a very cool mystery building to a mind-warping climax. And it has plenty of what you’d expect from an X-MEN epic of this magnitude. Action, romance, sacrifice, lots of X-Men and five great artists.”
Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey is set to hit shelves on December 27.
