Check out our First Look at Generations: Phoenix & Jean Grey

The old and the new collide this summer in the Marvel Universe as Jean Grey must confront her confusing past and try to avoid history repeating itself.

Generations will see veteran X-Men Jean Grey along with her fellow heroes as they witness the past and present collide as classic incarnations of your favourite heroes meet the hip new youngsters.

So, Jean Grey, the teen rookie X-Men from the past is about to see what years of complex continuity as well as dying and coming back to life 20-times will do to her. As you know from the movies (sadly), cartoon, and the movie, young wallflower Jean Grey has a love-hate relationship with a powerful alien entity called The Phoenix.

Sometimes bad and sometimes good it’s been a huge part of her adult life. Now with this mega event engulfing the Marvel Universe young and old, Jean Grey must team up.

Young Jean Grey has had a tough time since she came to the future, her complicated future lays out in front of her as she struggles to find a place in this complicated world as she bounces around X-Men teams with her on and off boyfriend, Scott Summers, who’s also struggling with a huge future to live up to.

He finds his future-self, a wanted mutant terrorist after his actions with The Phoenix power during the Avengers X-Men storyline.

Of course, I can sit and fill your head with lots of trivia, but here’s the selling line we’ve been sent:

“Teenage Jean Grey is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid the fate that befell her predecessor. But when Jean is cast through time and comes face-to-face with the newly possessed Phoenix, will she find the key to saving herself… or learn that her fate is sealed? But what Universe changing events will be witnessed on the final pages of this story?!”

Looks like it’s a chalk and cheese crossover. The ambitious teen meeting her older self and seeing how maybe things won’t work out the way she wanted.

See the crossover and much more on August 9.
