Chris Claremont: "Jean Grey Is Marvel's But Phoenix, And Especially Dark Phoenix, Are Mine."

Chris Claremont: "Jean Grey Is Marvel's But Phoenix, And Especially Dark Phoenix, Are Mine."Scanning my newsreader this morning in an attempt to see what's happening outside of the SDCC sphere, I came upon this just-published Austin Chronicle blog post intriguingly titled Chris Claremont: Dead Should Mean Dead.

Of course, that got my attention, but I think they buried the lede. Because it goes on to say this:

There's one bright spark to this cycle of death and resurrection: Whenever Jean Grey comes back, everyone will know who the creator of the Phoenix is. Claremont explained, "The way we ended divvying it up is that Jean Grey is Marvel's but Phoenix, and especially Dark Phoenix, are mine."

And the rest of the post gives some context of that in terms of history and what Claremont thinks about how it all went down.

But given that Jean Grey is about to return as part of Marvel Now, what is the implication of that comment for the near future?  Perhaps we'll find out this weekend…
