The general structure of a modern Jean Grey story:
- Jean Grey returns from the dead, through Phoenix-related trickery.
- Jean Grey becomes evil, and attacks one or more of the X-Men.
- X-Men regroup and come up with a plan, in a scene slightly like the part where the Scooby gang trap the monster. (Plan usually involves setting Wolverine on J-bird.)
- Slight battle scene, where Jean breaks through the evil and get a bit teary.
- The power of love prevails, Jean saves the world and then “dies”.
Repeat every 3-4 years.
