In the Dark Phoenix film, Jean Grey, one of the most popular X-Men characters in previous X-Men movies, starts to develop powers beyond her control. The uncontrollable power gradually corrupts her and turns her into Dark Phoenix. As Jean Grey has lost control, it is up to the other X-Men to save her – or give her up to save the rest of the world.
