I would be fine with a Miles/Jean relationship if literally Bendis did not make the majority of Jean’s story-arc in All New X-Men about her relationships with boys (the only time she gets off is the Trial of the Phoenix story and that’s just a redundant plot point right now).
I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised considering Ult!Jean Grey’s roles in her Ultimate Spider-Man cameos were to:
1) have Peter imagine her naked and Jean “seeing” it with her mind
2) Switch Logan and Peter’s minds because Logan was hitting on her. She has a right to be angry, but of course, it just comes off as “wacky hijinks.”
To say I have very little hope about this crossover is an understatement.
young!Jean did have a nice arc at the beginning of with her powers growing and it giving her a closer relationship to Kitty — and I’ve seen some recent stuff of Jean bonding with Emma. I’m just not sure what growth she emotionally got out of Kitty outside of power-taming or why all the females in the book have to be paired off so fucking quickly visually (see: those kissing covers, Kitty pushed off on Peter Quill after a single crossover etc). I haven’t actually seen an internal conflict properly seeded, grown and then addressed, and the focus on the group dynamic is really rocky. I’ve stepped away from mainstream comics again because of my disappointment with the X-Men titles and esp the mishandling of Wolverine and the X-Men v1, honestly :\
