Jean Grey (Cinematic Universe)

Introduced in “X-Men”, Dr. Jean Grey is a central character to the X-Men film series. One of Professor Xavier’s favorite students, Jean is a rare psychic in that she possesses the two dual psychic powers, telepathy and telekinesis at once. The girlfriend of Scott Summers (Cyclops), Jean is a beloved teacher at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, as well as the school’s resident medical doctor. Jean gets caught up in a love triangle between herself and the man she loves, Cyclops, as well as her dangerous mutual attraction with Wolverine. Best friends with Ororo Munroe (Storm), Jean was at one time the heart of the X-Men. Over time, however, her own mysterious past and the catacysmic events of the series unleashed a dark side hidden within her, turning her story into a tragedy as she transformed into the powerful mutant entity known as The Phoenix. Years after her death, Wolverine changed the past to prevent the creation of the Sentinels. This act changed the future, which brought Jean back to life.

Jean Grey is a rarely powerful psychic in that she has dual abilities: both telepathy and telekinesis. It is this potent blend that gives her so much power, as she can control and manipulate everything around her, be it invisible brain waves or the physical world. As Jean, her powers were constrained by psychic barriers, but when her power is fully manifested as Phoenix, she is the only Class 5 or Omega mutant alive, marking her as potentially the most powerful mutant to ever live.

Telepathy: Phoenix has unlimited telepathic abilities that are only surpassed by her telekinesis. Able to read and control minds and influence thoughts, Phoenix is able to hide herself from detection by Professor Xavier – the man who had once been considered the world’s most powerful telepath – and also to defeat him in psychic battle. She has been able to read the mind of Nightcrawler despite the powerful serum in his system, and has also developed a prescient ability to sense the future.

Telekinesis: Phoenix’s telekinesis is so powerful that she can influence particles on a subatomic level, meaning that she can rearrange the building blocks of the very world around her at will. As Magneto states, she can literally do “anything she can think of”. Phoenix can levitate and move objects and people across rooms, and she can effortlessly accomplish extraordinary feats that no other mutant would be able to do, such as fixing the Blackbird while holding back a massive wall of water. Through affecting the subatomic particles, she can disintegrate metal and human flesh. She has been shown to reverse the effects of gravity and to telekinetically destroy the world around her.

Famke Beumer Janssen (born 5 November 1965) is a Dutch actress, director, screenwriter, and former fashion model. She played Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye (1995), Jean Grey/Phoenix in the X-Men film series (2000–present), Ava Moore on Nip/Tuck, and Lenore Mills in Taken (2008) and its sequel, Taken 2 (2012). In 2008, she was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for Integrity by the United Nations. She made her directorial debut with Bringing Up Bobby in 2011.

In 2000, Janssen played superhero Dr. Jean Grey in the Marvel Studios film X-Men. She later reprised the role in the 2003 sequel, X2 where her character shows signs of increasing powers but at the end of the film, she is presumably killed. Janssen returns as a very much alive Jean whose death in X2 awoke her dark alternate personality, Phoenix in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). At the end of the film, she is killed by Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman), who only does it because Jean asks him to, not wanting to hurt anyone when Phoenix is in control. For that role, she won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress. She returned as Jean in the 2013 film The Wolverine as a hallucination of Wolverine’s.

In 2014, Janssen reprised her role of Jean Grey in a brief cameo for X-Men: Days of Future Past, as did a few of the original actors from the first three films including Anna Paquin and James Marsden. In the film, Wolverine went back in time and changed the course of the future, the result being that the events of the first three movies, including the death of Jean Grey, never happened.
