would you consider The White Phoenix of the Crown a mutant?? isn't she just jean that has reached and realized her untapped potential as an omega mutant? i mean it has been said that apart of her second mutation was to be a perfect vessel for the force and her mutant power is to be able to tap into the power of the phoenix like how storm taps into earth's energy to manipulate the weather. this is the reason why i think the merging between her and phoenix force makes sense.. it marked the appex of her mutant evolution because the force has always been a part of her, even when she didn't have access to it, lying dorment until she herself was able to accept and realize her own worth. this also supports the theory about her children inheriting her wondrous powers either by blood or genetic code.. because she was always the phoenix force and the thing that forged this duality is her genetic code between flesh and cosmic force which is also why racheal, cable and even nate inherited omega psionic abilities.. it all makes sense now. i've been researching and there are the small things that hint this.. here's a quote from beast: "jean grey is astonishing. she goes beyond mutation into some other category I don't yet have a name for. Even on the microscopic level. each of her body's cells is a ferment. A separate center of power" and then words from sinister also sparks similar thoughts sinister: "Jean Grey is mutant alpha. I believe this all-powerful mutant, or at least its powers would be passed from generation to generation to ensure the survival of our superior species." now this all pertains to jean and did she not accomplish this with the disinfection of the reality sublime created "burning away the obselete" (which is her role)? soo in saying that, i truly believed that jean was always predestined to be what she is today.. the ultimate mutation in all its glory! from the meek and fragile marvel girl-to the evolving phoenix- to flawed and imperfect inabitions of dark phoenix- to the strong and confident NeW X-MEn jean- to her current status, the White Crown..her very existence and history demonstrates the reason behind the creation of mutants as Eternity said it best in X-Men:Forever that the mankind was created to "take the role as the universe's eventual destroyer and savior...to exponentially increasing in evolutionary growth--until humanity becomes eternity"... doesn't jean as a mutant exemplify this down to the "T"?? so her transformation as White Phoenix was always hinted at.. even death tells jean that her unique gift is to be one with the force because of her birthright.. she's mutant alpha.. meaning that ever since her birth, she was essentially and unknowingly a true God amongst men!!
