    I see videos on youtube and I read several comments about people hating Jean Grey. Is she the most hated character in the show?

    I put "I'm Not Sure" because I CERTAINLY don't hate Jean Grey....but others might.

    Personally, I think she's one of the most important characters. W/ the whole pheonix and stuff. She was a very powerful mutant, and had a lot of character development throughout the series. Love her....not as much as Rogue....but love her all the same

    Jean Grey was more annoying than hated. It always pissed me off how she would pass out after using her powers. Jean is similar to the Justice League season 1 Superman in the sense that they massively made her weaker. She was only as powerful as the plot needed her to be.

    She definitely needed a confidence boost. But I still think her power is cool.

    I have also seen that she is hated. I kinda liked her in this series. She seemed to be an important part of the overall story. Also, like some said, I did like Rogue more, but Jean was a close second. Although, she was annoying at some points.

    I don't hate Jean Grey, but it's obvious others hate her.

    I think another reason people disliked her was just for the simple fact of the way she made Cyclops act.

    She is my absolute favorite character on X-men, which is why I have her icon. And I think she is the whole reason why I like superheroes in general. My second to favorite is Gambit, and can't believe anybody could dislike either of their characters. But Rogue would definitely be next in line.

    Well, she's definitely not one of my favorites. And I like her more as Phoenix. I don't know why but she just annoys me.

    I won't say I hated Jean, but they definitely crippled her powers on the series, thus cutting one of the most powerful characters they had. It seems to me that if a character was too powerful for their writers to be able to deal with creating believable situations for her to have to overcome, then they just shouldn't have included her in the show. There was plenty of time when Jean wasn't around the X-men in the comics and the stories were just as gripping emotionally as they were with her. I must also say I liked her better as Phoenix too, so the whole bit of the Phoenix force being a separate entity seemed a bit of a cop out to me. It's even worse than that now in the comics, from what I understand, that Jean was never Phoenix at all, and what we came to know as Phoenix was just a clone or something... Jean wasn't hated. I just don't think her and Scott's relationship was handled as well as it could have been, not nearly as well as in the comics...

    I wouldn't say she was hated but, especially in the early season before she becomes phoenix, she is pretty useless

    I wouldn't say she was a hated character, but she seemed to be more of a supporting character (especially in the last two seasons) even though she was in the main lineup. After the Dark Phoenix saga, "Xavier Remembers" and "Graduation Day" were the only episodes where she actually did anything important.
