    (This review may contain spoilers). It was interesting to have the opportunity to see Jean Grey's origin story, even though it did contradict the other two origin stories (so far) that I've seen of her. I thought that both sets of comics were particularly dark, with a more computer graphic type feel to them. The first comic was particularly creepy, but it did make me feel very sympathetic towards Jean. I thought the style of the comic, despite it being really dark, was really easy to follow.

The first comic was particularly creepy, but it did make me feel very sympathetic towards Jean. I thought the style of the comic, despite it being really dark, was really easy to follow. Her mental image of Annie was especially creepy. While it was good that the first comic focused primarily on Jean, I liked the fact that the second set of comics also involved many of the other characters... though I had a strong dislike for Cyclops in that time. I liked the opportunity to see the X-Men from the past come forward to the present time... but a lot of the comics made me feel really tense while I was reading. Despite the seriousness of the second set of comics, I found myself laughing outright at the two Bobbys interacting with each other. It was also good to see the differences in maturity with the different versions of the characters... though I found it really hard to believe that Hank from the past was only twelve years old. He came across as much more mature than I would have expected from that. I really did like the artwork in both of these comics, though the second set was a bit difficult to figure out which panel came next. There was a lot of detail involved in the second set of comics especially. I would have liked to see what was going on with more of some of the other characters. I had some questions about who was missing in the future, though. I couldn't tell all of the details about who was meant to be doing what, there was so much involved. I was very disappointed in Cyclops, since he changed so completely from his original incarnation. It was nice to see Jean having to deal with developing her powers so early on... and I would definitely be interested in seeing what else will happen with them. Preferably a redemption-arc storyline. Plus, there are some intriguing elements about Jean's history I'd like to read about.

    Disclaimer: I’ve yet to read the Phoenix Saga. Let me start by saying I’ve never been overly fond on Jean Grey. My only exposure to her has consisted of a love interest for both Wolverine and Cyclops in the three X-Men movies, and a so-so character within the 1990’s cartoon series. Let’s be honest here: neither of them gave her any real character or justice. Thankfully (issue six of) Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes done just that.

Let’s be honest here: neither of them gave her any real character or justice. Thankfully (issue six of) Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes done just that. The first part of this issue consists on an origin story: X-Men Origins: Jean Grey. This is where we’re introduced to Gene and her life. This gorgeous piece of art tells the tale of a young girl as she tries to accept & control her powers, overcome a tragedy, and let Professor Xavier help her. My favourite bit about this story is the artwork. It consists of hand-drawn images, which bring the story to life. The second part of this book, or rather the bulk of it, is made up of a post-Avengers vs. X-Men storyline: Here Comes Yesterday. In in the original X-Men are brought forward in time in order to stop the present day Cyclops. The once leader of the X-Men has joined forces with Magneto and Emma Frost to start a mutant uprising, which could lead to another civil war. Jean is given more spotlight as she not only has one of her powers prematurely activated, but also seen what her long-time love, Cyclops, will become. Jean is forced to grow up and deal with this new reality. The artwork is done in a more conventional comic book style, but I love the way old and new X-men are drawn. Both stories are excellent choices and I commend Hachette Partworks on their choices. Each one not only gives us a slightly different look at Jean, but her life as well. It takes her from love-interest (again, my perception) to full-rounded character. Supporting characters stand out as well. The meetings between Beast and Iceman’s young and future selves in Here Come’s Yesterday is entertaining and light-hearted. Both of these characters shine within the story. This is another highly recommended graphic novel in Hachette’s Marvels’ Mightiest Heroes series. I’ll now be looking for the rest of Here Comes Yesterday‘s continuation.

    The one-shot origins is a beautiful work of art. A new depth, richly added to the background of one of the original members of the X-Men. Haunted and lost, secluded and bewildered by the powers manifesting within from the abrupt shock of her best friends death, Jean Grey is approached by Charles Xavier to learn to control her gifts. Then we have an all new X-Men after the aftermath of everything, we see a dying Hank McCoy travel back in time to the original X-Men in hopes to bring them back to his The one-shot origins is a beautiful work of art. A new depth, richly added to the background of one of the original members of the X-Men.

Then we have an all new X-Men after the aftermath of everything, we see a dying Hank McCoy travel back in time to the original X-Men in hopes to bring them back to his present, where Charles is dead, Jean has died a few times and Scott Summers is on a ferocious quest for mutant justice, starting a revolution and not caring who stands in his way. OK it's hard to tell a tale of one person when said person is part of a team, but this brings back the original Jean Grey and she is forced to learn of everything that has befallen her and her friends over the decades in such a short maner of time and it is done with aplomb.
