imaginaryalice wrote my this lovely recap on all the best Jean/Logan moments in the comics. It's a good read through for someone who comes from the movies, as I do. In the movies I have trouble enjoying the Jean/Logan relationship for a lot of reasons. They spent at most 2-3 weeks together but by the end of X3 Logan's unabiding love for Jean is a central plot line. Something about their super quick courtship comes off as forced. One second they meet and flirt, the next Jean is choosing between her fiance Scott and Logan, and the third Logan is risking his life for Jean. It's all very rushed and despite actors like Famke Janssen and Hugh Jackman whom I both like, I just have trouble buying the whole relationship.

This is where the comics come in and the whole convoluted back story actually helps. Logan has loved Jean for many years in the comics. They have a history and a past. It's unrequited love in a way for Logan. Although Jean cares for him and is drawn to Logan she rarely gives into his advances, save when they think their death is eminent. Logan is forced to kill Jean a few times because she harbors the Phoenix force. And sometimes they die together in a blaze of glory. It's really beautiful in a way. imaginaryalice even included a Rogue/Logan scan too, just for me. Thank you. You really brightened my day.
