According to Rachel Summers, Jean Grey from her reality mirrored the modern era Jean Grey, but when this Jean was captured by Sentinels and piloted a spacecraft back to Earth, the Phoenix Force bonded with her, instead of placing her in a cocoon and replacing her. Another notable difference was when Jean/Phoenix returned to the home of her parents and, driven by Dark Phoenix's rage, she demonstrated her powers in front of them. However, Jean's father realized that, as a telepath, Jean could feel the subconscious fear that her parents and sister felt in her presence and, realizing that this was causing her pain that she could not block out, he chose not to cast her out, as he did in the modern era. As a result, Phoenix did not commit suicide after the Sh'ar duel of honor (as she had in the modern era). Instead, Jean married Scott Summers and had a single child, whom they named Rachel Summers and who inherited Jean's psychic powers.[1]

In the mainstream reality, the X-Men prevented the assassination of anti-mutant Senator Robert Kelly; however, in Jean’s timeline, Kelly was killed. The assassination caused intense widespread public paranoia against mutants, and, in the next presidential election, an anti-mutant candidate won. Jean later died in a nuclear explosion, when Rachel was a child.

Powers

Seemingly those of Jean Grey of Earth-616.
