A blog dedicated to one of the original X-Men, Jean Grey. Having bonded with the Phoenix Force, she has become one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe. This blog follows appearances of Jean Grey in current comic continuity as well as other appearances in the various Marvel universes.

Inspired by [x]

Lately, I (among other individuals) have noticed quite an increase in Jean Grey hate in various tags on Tumblr (including the Jean Grey tag of course). Some of it may not be tagged at all since Tumblr search/tags can be a bit wonky but it’s  frustrating for many users to constantly see more of this content than content for the character itself.

Not everyone will like every character - people have different tastes and that’s understandable. I think no matter what though, we all want to enjoy the characters we love in peace.

The idea for the above badge was sparked by a conversation on how often female characters get mistreated. The underlying intention has NOTHING to do with forcing people to love Jean Grey. Rather, it’s simply to show support and love for the character among individuals who have been inspired by her. If you’d like to use the badge, a transparent, sized-down image can be downloaded here and here. Feel free to use it on your Tumblr page, or wherever.

Furthermore, to show all you Jean Grey Love, please check out the #jean grey love tag on Tumblr (and track it if you so wish). For more details, check out this post.


Hello! Have you noticed the steadily increasing amount of Jean Grey hate that plagues the #jean grey tag? Because I have! Are you looking for Jean Grey posts and graphics, but don’t wanna sift through pages of hateful posts and unnecessary insults? Me too! Due to the current state of the general tag, I’m proposing a solution: let’s create a new, positive tag in which to share our Jean Grey edits, posts, fanarts and headcanons! Instead of posting in the #jean grey tag, let’s start using the tag #jean grey love to share our edits, posts, news, and headcanons in a safe space meant for people who like Jean Grey, and want to communicate with other Jean Grey lovers. I hope to see you all there!

#jean grey love forever!

This isn’t the fight of our lives. This is the fight of right now. There’s gonna be another one tomorrow and probably the day after that. But this is Xavier’s School — we’ve been taught how to fight. We’re X-Men.

Comics 101: A “How To Read Comics” Guide by hoenn

Let me begin by saying that the title is probably misleading since there’s no wrong way to read comics except maybe by not reading them at all. Anyways, a few years ago, I was introduced to comics. I was fortunate — I had friends who were already immersed, who could answer questions if I had them. Since then, I’ve seen many people who wanted to read comics who ran into some barrier that prevented them from doing so. To address this, I thought I would make a guide to help these individuals navigate their journey in comics, a safe space of sorts. 

Disclaimer: I’m still very much a comics baby so I don’t know everything and my comics knowledge is by no means complete. I’m always learning, you’re always learning, it’s cool.

Let’s begin.
