When Marvel Legacy kicks off this fall the Phoenix is still coming, and Jean Grey’s only hope might be Emma Frost.
As revealed on Comic Book Resources, writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Victor Ibanez will continue their run on the first ever solo title for Jean Grey, as the time displaced version of the character continues her journey to prepare for and fight her destiny to be bonded with the Phoenix.
“I’m really excited about what we came up with,” Hopeless told CBR. “It’s a sort of heist story with Emma Frost’s intimidating mind as the vault. Jean has to get in and get out without one of the scariest psychics in Marvel history catching her.”
