Well, Jean as she has been portrayed in the past 15 years or so is not very likeable, but she used to be an ideal girl one upon a time: strong, loyal, smart and pretty, but able to recognize the intrinsic worth of a geek like Scott vs. a flashy boy like Warren in spite of the peer pressure... I admit I feel like she has been trampled on quite thoroughly ever since Chris Claremont took over. Obviously not his intent, but the guy cannot write a sympathetic woman character to save his life. This in itself would not a problem, if he did not insist on focusing on femal protagonists constantly; I think he was traumatized early on by someone telling him he was good at it... And all subsequent X-writers seem to have taken a page from his book regarding her character. Well, that's just my take on it, of course, I am not sure if anyone else -les biaised- would see it that way! :D

Certainly I do like the fact that in your X1 series you do not bash her needlessly but show her viewpoint with sensitivity: there is no need IMHO to abuse canon female SOs in order to clear the way for a slash pairing. There are better ways to deal with the issue in a civilized fashion which only require a modicum of imagination.
