  • Madelyne always bore a striking resemblance to the (then) presumed deceased Jean Grey. Numerous individuals mistook her for Jean reborn. To make matters more suspicious, Madelyne's mind was closed to Professor X and she was the sole survivor of a mysterious plane crash, which occurred at the exact moment the Dark Phoenix committed suicide on the Moon, or so she thought.
  • Madelyne Pryor is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. As the love interest and first wife of X-Men leader Cyclops (Scott Summers), she became a long-standing member of the X-Men supporting cast, until a series of traumas — including being abandoned by her husband, losing her infant son, and discovering that she was a clone of Jean Grey — eventually led to her being manipulated into becoming a supervillain.

Description
  • Created in the cloning labs of Mr. Sinister from the D.N.A. of Jean Grey to sire a child with Scott Summers after the perceived death of Jean, Madelyne Pryor's entire life was all a lie. After meeting and falling in love with Scott, they married and she birthed Nathan Summers, who later grew to become Cable. Always coming second to the memory of Jean, Scott finally left Maddie and the baby after learning that Jean was alive. Learning of her true origins drove Maddie insane and led to her demise. Thanks to the power of Nate Grey, Madelyne existed as a psychic ghost, but has recently been resurrected by Arkea as a member of her Sisterhood.

  • Madelyne Pryor is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. As the love interest and first wife of X-Men leader Cyclops (Scott Summers), she became a long-standing member of the X-Men supporting cast, until a series of traumas — including being abandoned by her husband, losing her infant son, and discovering that she was a clone of Jean Grey — eventually led to her being manipulated into becoming a supervillain. Her son with Cyclops, Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, grew up in a future timeline to later return as Cable. Madelyne's biography has been rendered particularly complicated because of the many retcons involved in the publication history of both her character and that of Jean Grey.
  • Madelyne always bore a striking resemblance to the (then) presumed deceased Jean Grey. Numerous individuals mistook her for Jean reborn. To make matters more suspicious, Madelyne's mind was closed to Professor X and she was the sole survivor of a mysterious plane crash, which occurred at the exact moment the Dark Phoenix committed suicide on the Moon, or so she thought. In reality, she was a clone of Jean created by Mister Sinister. Mr. Sinister found that a union between the X-Men, Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey (Marvel Girl), would produce a powerful mutant. Sinister hoped he could control such a mutant and use it to defeat Apocalypse. At the time, Jean, actually the Phoenix, was acting reckless, so Sinister created a clone of her. Sinister's plot was to produce a child from the union of Madelyne and Scott, whom he believed would become a genetically superior mutant. To Sinister's disappointment, Madelyne had no life and did not develop any mutant abilities at puberty as he had hoped. Sinister left Madelyne in her incubation tube as a failed experiment. It was at the moment of the Dark Phoenix's death that a spark of the Phoenix Force was accidentally bestowed on Madelyne's body and renewed Sinister's interest. After Dark Phoenix died on the moon, the Phoenix sought to return the "borrowed" portion of Jean's soul to her body which was in suspended animation. Jean instinctively rejected the Phoenix and it wandered the globe, lost. Eventually, it became attracted to Madelyne, since she was an exact genetic clone of Jean. The Phoenix Force searched for the next best thing, giving a spark of itself to Madelyne, granting her a life force and some of Jean's memories.
