  • Evolution's answer to the Phoenix Saga?

    8.0
    This might be the closest X-Men Evolution gets to The Phoenix Saga. It falls way short of that epic storyline, but since I never liked that cosmic and confusing plot, I prefer this one-shot of Jean losing the ability to control her telepathy. There is a strong moment where she and Scott connect, and I wish there was more of this on the show. Other elements I enjoyed were the party at Duncan's house, and Rogue's time with her new goth, buddy (who turned out to be Mystique in disguise). What doesn't make much sense however, is the team suiting up when the needed to help Jean when all at home anyway, assisting a friend. Huh?moreless
  • Jean Grey receives a power upgrade. Too powerfull for her to handle.

    9.0
    Ok, this episode is one of my favorites. Not only because it focuses on Jean Grey, but also for the character development involved.

    Jean's powers evolve in this episode. The others try to help her, but only Cyclops can calm her down.

    In the end, Jean remembers everything that happened, even what Scott said: that he knows her better than anyone else ever did and ever will.
