The makers of 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' dropped its first teaser on YouTube on Wednesday, September 26. 20th Century Fox released the short preview from the much-anticipated X-Men venture that is speculated to depict the journey of the powerful mutant Jean Grey. The trailer showcases how the X-Men had to face Jean's Phonex powers after a mission to space goes wrong.
Set in 1992, nearly a decade after the events of 'X-Men: Apocalypse', the X-Men in this upcoming venture are considered as national heroes. When a solar flare hits them during a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey loses control of her abilities and unleashes the Phoenix.
Jean who accidentally caused a car crash as a child, grew up to being a young woman with limitless cosmic powers. Being an Omega-level mutant with the physical manifestation of the cosmic Phoenix Force, she is one of the strongest mutant the 'X-Men' series has ever witnessed. In the trailer, several X-men characters including Cyclops, Mystique, Beast, Storm, and Nightcrawler are seen coming together as a malevolent, power-hungry force takes over Jean Grey's mind.
Describing Jene's character, Professor X in the trailer says, "She's all rage, pain, and it's all coming out at once."
