The X-Men’s Jean Grey Reveals a Major Weakness With Her Powers

The following contains spoilers for X-Men: Unforgiven #1 from Marvel Comics.

Jean Grey reveals her telepathic powers are useless when it comes to reading vampires' minds in a preview for Marvel's X-Men: Unforgiven #1.

X-Men: Unforgiven #1 comes from writer Tim Seeley, artist Sid Kotian, color artist Edgar Delgado and letterer VC's Joe Caramagna. A preview for the issue provided by Marvel sees Jean Grey, Jubilee, Rogue and Beast investigating a cemetery in Manhattan when they come across Inka of Forgiven, a team of heroic vampires who were created by Victor Gischler and Ryan Stegman that first appeared in 2011's Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula #1. Realizing more vampires are following behind Inka, Jean attempts to use her powers to determine how many of them there are; however, she quickly realizes she's unable to do so. "The mind of a vampire is impenetrable, Jean Grey," Nighteyes informs her as she and the rest of the Forgiven make themselves known. "Especially when filled with rage."



The synopsis for X-Men: Unforgiven #1 reads, "MUTANTS…OR MONSTERS? Beaten, broken and bruised after the destruction of SPIDER-MAN: UNFORGIVEN, the FORGIVEN desperately need a break…but, of course, there ain't no rest for the wicked. Body parts have mysteriously started washing up on the coast of Maine…and these extraneous organs call for help from the extraordinary X-MEN! But with former bloodsucker JUBILEE in tow, the team is risking more than they know…"

Marvel's Superheroes Are Fighting Alongside Vampires

X-Men: Unforgiven #1 is one of three one-shots that see several heroes in the Marvel Universe work with the Forgiven. Spider-Man: Unforgiven #1 came first Mar. 1 2023 while Captain America: Unforgiven #1 will conclude the trilogy on April 19, 2023.

"I love Marvel super heroes, no doubt, but I've got a special obsession with Marvel's horror heroes," Seeley said when the project was announced. "UNFORGIVEN gives that creepy, sexy, weird underbelly a chance to shine as a horrific conspiracy unites a crew of vampires with Spider-Man, the X-Men and Captain America, and shows us the stark differences (and surprisingly similarities) of those who are gifted with the ability to fight evil, and those who have to carry evil's curse. By the end of this epic event, we'll have toured a lot of dark corners of the Marvel Universe, and reminded readers that monsters are at its shrunken black heart!"

X-Men: Unforgiven #1 features cover art by Kyle Hotz and Dan Brown and variant cover art by Peach Momoko. The issue releases on Mar. 29, 2023, from Marvel Comics.
