Today the Phoenix arrived full of surprises. For those who haven’t got to this yet, GO GET IT NOW. For those who got it, I’m sure there is some shit going on in your head right now. It’s so confusing when it comes to the Phoenix. Let me explain something; what I think it is. I don’t really discuss much here, let alone the Phoenix, but this book got me to care a lot more than I thought. The cover of this book is awesome. It’s a 3-D cover.

Let’s talk about the weirdness.

Ok, as if this wasn’t weird enough. There is no explanation, therefore we can’t understand what the fuck really happened to those kids but from the interpretation of Beast, it seems like those kids were dead alive. Pretty much that’s what this book is about, I think. There were a few characters who had reappeared from the dead. We’re in the first issue of The Resurrection so nothing yet makes sense here but I can at least use my expectation. So here is a theory.

We know Wolverine died in the book: Death of Wolverine, issue 4.

The strange news is that we saw the real James Howlett, a.k.a the real Wolverine. Holy shit!

The reappearance of the Hellfire Guard. When were the last time they were around?

We also saw one of Magneto’s followers from the Acolytes, Seamus Melloncamp. Last time I heard all the Acolytes were dead.

But for some reason Wolverine, Seamus, and the Hellfire Guard vanished into thin air WTF? What does that mean? I don’t know.

We know Cassidy, a.k.a Banshee, died in Deadly Genesis 2

But he also reappeared once again.

Even Cyclops, who we know for sure was dead, came to see Jean. So Cyclops and Jean are also here.

Each of those characters that reappeared are all dead. Honestly, I don’t know what the fuck is going on but this is getting very interesting. Here is the thing. If the kids are recovering and have no memory of the incident whatsoever, can this explain Jean and Banshee not knowing each other? I mean she’s a waitress and he’s a customer with no memory of who they are. It appeared that only Cyclops and Jean are the ones who know each other but from my guessing I would say that is because they have a strong bond and that their love they carry for each other is pure.

Another theory is that maybe those that reappeared has to do with some kind of  connection with Jean? Well, we have Hellfire Club where she was one of the Queens as the Black Queen. That can explain the Hellfire Guard. We have Wolverine, her second affair she had in her past life. This can also explain the young Wolverine. But what about Melloncamp? Well I’m sure she fought the Acolytes during her time with the X-men and to be more clear she fought with Melloncamp.

Oh how I miss the 90s. So…can this explain the Acolyte Melloncamp? Maybe. Who knows. And that’s the point, we don’t fucking know anything but I can only guess.

My last theory. Remember when AVX took place, everyone was fighting for their beliefs that the Phoenix will destroy the entire planet or will restore the (mutants) X-gene. This time from my perspective, it looks like this Phoenix is resurrecting the dead mutants along with Jean Grey. It can also mean that they were never dead in the first place. One simple explanation for this is that the Phoenix could have gathered those that were “dead” and restored them in a hot white room LOL. Well, Disney bought the rights back and knowing Marvel, they will do just that: revive all the dead.

Clearly a lot of weirdness going on here and a lot of answers to seek. You gotta ask yourself is the Hellfire Club coming back? Are the Acolytes returning once again? Are Banshee, Cyclops (we already know Jean is coming back), and Wolverine coming back with a few others, like Xavier, for example? I only have one answer and it’s Wolverine. We know Wolverine is coming back, no question. The book is about the resurrection and not only the return of Adult Jean Grey but also the Return of The Dead. Just like one of my favorite old movies.

With Ahab continuing to hunt Charles Xavier’s original, younger X-Men through the timestream, every X-Men team in existence is called to arms in Extermination #3. And as Marvel’s solicitation for the September issue reveals, young Jean Grey will call upon a classic team from the ’90s to act as her personal bodyguards.

The Mark Brooks cover for Extermination #3 features Jean Grey charging into battle alongside Cannonball, Domino, Boom Boom, Warpath and Shatterstar, better known as the lineup from Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza’s X-Force, which debuted in 1991 and saw Cable convert the New Mutants into a more proactive, militaristic group.
