Jean Grey has natural, but rather extreme, red hair that goes to about her shoulder blades. She usually has it up in a ponytail, especially when in the medlab. Her eyes are a slightly lighter brown, but seem to be on fire when she accesses the Phoenix Force. (No one but the Professor has seen this since he has effectively shut Jean off from her powers.) Jean is exactly six feet and is of average weight for her height.
The younger daughter of history professor John Grey and his wife Elaine, Jean Grey was 10 years old when her mutant telepathic powers first manifested after experiencing the emotions of a dying friend. This was like a beacon to the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix Force, which bonded with Jean. The combination of the mind link with her friend and the bonding of the Phoenix Force left Jean comatose. Her parents took her to be treated by Professor Charles Xavier.While Xavier treated Jean he also used her to fine tune his Cerebro machine. When Xavier introduced young Jean to the astral plane, a part of her mind manifested as a Phoenix raptor. Afterwards, Xavier erected psychic shields in Jean’s mind to separate Jean from the Phoenix Force. She has not seen him since.
Jean was a straight-A student in high school and college, where she majored in psychology and gained her Ph.D. She was at a convention on new psychotropic drugs used to treat mental illnesses when she briefly used her powers to grab a pen out of her bag and was turned into Genosha. While there, Jean has become friends with the younger ones of the captives, but she is friendly with all.
