Time-Traveling Jean Grey

Secret Wars Volume 2

X-Men: Covert / Instinct / Ranged

Jean Grey was the first mutant, other than Magneto’s own children, recruited to be an X-Man. Jean’s parents knew something was wrong with their daughter and, with no place else to turn, contacted Magneto. Magneto, who had recently announced his intentions to train mutants in the use of their powers, arrived and took Jean into his care.

As the X-Men came together, Jean remained their lone telepath. Due to a lack of telepathic teachers Jean was unable to block out many of her teammates’ pains and wants. The man whose pain came through to her most glaringly was the mysterious Weapon X. She felt for Logan and these feelings eventually became love.
