Wow, what a great piece of artwork showing a first person view from the perspective of Cyclops and Phoenix removes his ruby quartz glasses. Great idea and terrific execution. I would love to buy this print if anyone can find it.
Wow. Nice hair. Adam Hughes should definitely think about drawing the Jean Grey more often.

Adam Hughes does an incredible job on this version of the Black Queen. If anyone has original AH! art of Jean Grey in any costume, please send it in.
Stumbled across this artwork of Jean as Phoenix by Gazbot on deveiantart.com. Not often you seen Jean with a little meat on her bones. I like it, so here it is. What do you think?
Thanks to Mir Hite for this find.
I’ve been a big fan of Jean Grey and the X-Men for as long as I can remember. And I’m also a big fan of anime and Japanese culture. When I heard that Japanese figure making company ‘Kotobukiya’ was making a line that they called Marvel Bishoujo, I was really excited! They started off with Rogue, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch… now, they’ve added not only Psylocke to their repertoire, but…
Jean Grey as the Phoenix! You can see more images and order from here.
And also as the Dark Phoenix! You can see more here and even pre-order.
They’re not Bowen Designs figures, but they’re definitely Jean, and they capture her rather nicely in both figures. The links that I provided have not only pictures, but you can also put in pre-orders for both versions–I definitely did!
Hope you enjoy these links!
Beautiful, just beautiful. I don’t care for Emma Frost or the White Queen or whatever you call her character. She can’t hold a candle to Jean Grey’s character or hold a candle to the power of the Phoenix, but you have to appreciate this art by Eric “eBas” Basaldua. From the gallery of Jamie Kwong.
This is a great cover featuring Jean Grey as Marvel Girl. Just gorgeous…the cover, I mean.
…expanding on her established background from a black-and-white story in Bizarre Adventures #27 that most current readers probably don’t even know exists. McKeever sticks to telling the story of Jean’s traumatic telepathic awakening, adding just a little extra to what we knew to provide a sense of resolution.
But the real reason to get this issue is the artwork. Mayhew’s cover is nice, but his interior artwork is also painted and is superior throughout. Not only does everything look wonderful, but his storytelling skills are more than up to the challenge of showing us all the things here that happen in Jean’s head without major action scenes to drive them.
10. X-men Forever # 3
Jean relives important key moments in her life while at the same time re-bonding with the Phoenix force. The cover depicts Jean in her Revolution era costume, which was extremely short lived and forgotten by most fans. Prior to this costume, Jean had been wearing her traditional green Phoenix costume and calling herself Phoenix.
Here my favorite pieces that I personally own. If you wish to start your own personal art collection of Phoenix artwork, you can start with eBay. That’s what I have did and then started attending comic conventions and acquiring artwork directly from the artists by requesting sketches.
Jean Grey by Ed Benes
I purchased this Jean Grey piece at an auction at Heroes Con in 2006. It is one of my favorite pieces even though she is in one of the most uninspired costumes she ever wore. Great work by Ed Benes and Marc Deering in spite of the costume. It was drawn by Ed Benes and inked by Marc Deering.
Phoenix – Art Nouveau
This was a gift from my friend Chris for Christmas ’06. Obviously it is a great piece and he had commissioned from Brian Shearer. You can view his website at Gravy Boy to see more of his work. He has some other Phoenix pieces on his site, but not this one. I have also commissioned a Cyclops Art Nouveau piece from Brian.
Phoenix by Jim Lee
I was very fortunate to have a friend, Dave Luebke who is a bigwig in the comic industry (Dave’s Comics) who met Jim Lee and asked him to commission this artwork as a surprise gift for me. Obviously I’m elated and thankful for Dave’s generosity and Jim Lee’s talent. I treasured addition to my collection!
Below are links to various collections of artwork containing Jean Grey, Phoenix, Dark Phoenix and other renditions of Jean’s character. I’ll add more was I find particularly nice artwork to include.
