One of the most powerful mutants among the X-Men, Jean Grey went full Phoenix at the climax of X-Men: The Last Stand.
Dark Phoenix is an origin story of sorts featuring her younger self (played by GoT’s Sophie Turner), whose nascent powers are amplified by a cosmic energy wave, turning her into a destructive force that not even the combined might of the X-Men are able to stop. Professor X has a Luke Skywalker moment, recognising there’s good inside Jean, but can his powers of persuasion bring her back from the dark side? A grand finale for the franchise (for now), Dark Phoenix feels like a smaller film than its predecessors, although there’s no shortage of spectacle. It’s better than Last Stand and Apocalypse, even if it’s not quite the endgame that the X-Men truly deserved.
