This scene from issue 30 of X-Men Gold, featuring adult Jean Grey and Rachel Grey and teen Jean Grey at the wedding rehearsal dinner for Kitty Pryde and Colossus, is fantastic. The Grey family’s fantastic time-travel and alternate-timeline shenanigans all come down to this one panel.
I love the reference to the animated series & the reference of comics. The green clothes, the hairstyle & the comics the scream of Dark Phoenix.
“Hey, Stan, you know who they were? I tell ya, they never used to do that when we had the book.”
“Ah, Jack, you know these young kids–they got no respect.”
Uncanny X-Men #98
The context of the last panel is Emma waking up in the middle of the night to find Scott assembling a crib and fussing over baby stuff for when Nathan brings Hope back. It’s adorable in that awkward Cyclops way.
(also why are you even questioning the baby clothes thing, Scott? You raised a kid for like, twelve years. did you forget how they work?)
