I don't know.

I was just hoping for some Namor related tension in the preview. But was surprised is seemed good. lol.

No new code-name for Jean? Why not?  They should be able to come up with something, in-universe, even if she doesn't want to embrace "Phoenix" anymore.

So, Sub-Mariner.  He's done with trying to kill Wakandans, for once?  I don't suppose he's ever apologized for anything (sigh...)

Glad to see Nightcrawler back, hope he gets to do lots of cool things and isn't sidelined in combat.
Trinary?  I presume it's a play on words from 'binary'... so, the power of three stars, or something?

The promotional text.. Jean's the "First Lady" of the X-Men?  Not Storm?  Figures...  ???

Jean was the first female on the X-men

Her normal code name was Marvel Girl. But I think there is enough of that going around. lol

First issue was good. No sign of Nezhno. Storm fans are upset. Good start. lol

Second issue not as good. Nothing dramatic happens in Wakanda. Retro Sentinel at the ending.

How did Xmen Red place number 2 in February? Either people really really liked number 1 or there is a bigger Jean following than I thought. lol

Real Jean been more or less dead for over 10 years.. Which marvel lieing ( more or less) multiple times around bringing her back.. That's one of the reasons it's saling pretty well so far.. plus a lot of people have when they return of International X-Men team ( what this book more or less is) & with similar premise ( supposedly not ignoring these characters are more than just mutants & are also many ways more importantly there race and culture & etc, but I wouldn't be shocked if that plot point is dropped that I have zero faith in Xbooks)..

Still a good comic, but Gentle needs a rewrite. Lol.
