Hey I've been destroying my mind with guessing the outcome of the Pheonix situation in Ult. X-Men. Can someone give me some of you ideas to see if mine are along the right track

Let me just say it will be drastically different than the 616 universe.

Phoenix stuff will be back-burnered for a while to make room for the Cable arc--and all that comes out of it.

Should be fun.

Thank God.

Any chance to de-Byrne something should be taken with haste.

I'm not sure I trust the phrase "drastically different." I remember hering the same thing about way too many characters to accept it.

Personally, I think she's going to come to accept the Phoenix as a part of her, and it will have it's own persona in her mind. Like a crazy person but not.

I've never done it, but I've heard that people who e-mail the writer usually get a response.

Yeah it seems that VVD is right about UC4P. He has it made on this forum and I have to ask why didn't I get invited in that quickly? I only joined 2 weeks or so ago.....I didn't even get a "Welcome new poster!" type thing. Oh well......

Told ya E. Did I call it or what?

He makes his first post in the member intro thread, he makes a Bendis/St.Elsewhere joke, and his thread gets Kirkman to respond personally.

WOW!! This is Ultimate! Is this the REAL Robert Kirkman?
I love your run on UXM! However, I'm more a fan of longer 6 issue arcs than the shorter 3 issue arcs.
PLEASE DO NOT KILL OFF JEAN GREY!!
I'm still pissed about losing Beast (Damn Bendis, you let me down), and Gambit (however, I was happy the hair-do died with him).
Please do not kill her off, and keep up the Ultimate work!

P.S. Marvel.com opened up an Ultimate board also!

Good. I'm glad the Pheonix thing isn't gonna be resolved completely. I was getting a rushed feeling to it all and I think Pheonix should be something really big when it comes down to the final revealation.

Re: How will the Pheonix turn out in the UU?

Well, Jean can't stay on the team at full Phoenix power for the same reason the Magician can't ; too big a power gap between her and the other character.

And Robert Kirkman was so kind as indicating that the Phoenix situation would be put on back burner after the current arc. So, in the next issue, either...

  1. The Phoenix power are contained long term within Jean.
  2. Jean herself is contained long term.

I think Xavier's ability to contain Jean's madness are growing thin so somehow it's Jean herself that will have to be temporarily neutralized until a solution can be found.

Perhaps Jean will be put in a coma by the end of the magician fight.

Fury is present in the current mess. Perhaps SHIELD will end up taking custody of her (and the magician) somehow.

These would be my guess, anyway. Long term resolution... ain't really got a clue. But, damn, do I ever hope the Phoenix isn't the core of the Earth!

Kirkman has been the only one with the balls (or courtesy) to post, but Millar has said he's been on and I *think* BKV has. I'm sure Bendis has. Warren Ellis is way too good for us, so I doubt he has. As for other Ultimate writers - no idea.
