It's been a long time since Jean Grey was alive. She often gets flack for dying and coming back but since her death in NEW X-MEN #150, it's been over eight years since we've seen her.
Why mention her now? Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch posted some details on this week's Comic-Con issue. Besides the expected coverage of what you can expect to see, they mention and show and exclusive first look at the following image:
This is from an image by Joe Quesada. We can see she is in her classic/original costume. This could be something as simple as a flashback story to the X-Men's early days but it sounds as if they're making more out of this than that.
EW mentioned the following:
We can only confirm that her presence in the Marvel universe will not be imaginary. This will not be part of the Ultimate line-up. She will not be a zombie hologram, like Shard on X-Factor.
Apparently more information will be revealed tomorrow.
Thoughts? Is it time for Jean's return? Why is she in her old costume?
