Jean appeared in the Professor's office in a blinding flash of light.

The Professor sat stunned as Jean stood, radiating peace and joy.

"I don't have much time to explain. Somehow the power of Jean Grey and the Phoenix along with the enhancement of her mutation by the virus created me. It's a beautiful thing, like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. But because of that I can't stay here." Jean said with a note of sadness.

"Why not?" The Professor asked cautiously.

"You know that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The same goes for potential, that is how challenges come to us that are usually within our abilities to overcome. The potential I have now could attract a counter-force of such magnitude that it could destroy this solar system." Jean said seriously.

"When do you have to leave?"

"Now. Every minute that I stay increases the danger. But I'll stop in from time to time to visit. The place where I'll be living is designed for a being like what I've become." Jean said with happiness radiating from her eyes.

"You are obviously happy with the transformation. But you speak of yourself as though you aren't Jean Grey anymore. Who are you now?" The Professor asked quietly.

Jean disappeared in a flash of light and her answer hung in the air. //You can still call me Jean, but the rest of the multiverse will call me Q.//
