  Marvel Girl (Rachel Summers) - Marvel Universe: The definitive online source for Marvel super hero bios.
Marvel Girl is a mutant with virtually unlimited telepathic powers, allowing her to read minds, project her thoughts into other minds, stun the minds of others with telepathic mental bolts, and cast psionic illusions such as those she uses to mask her facial tattoos.
Marvel Girl also possesses the psionic ability to project her own consciousness or those of others into the timestream, causing them to arrive in another time period within the body of their divergent counterpart or closest living ancestor or descendant.
Marvel Girl's past link with the Phoenix Force gave her even greater psionic abilities, such as being able to manipulate time, space, matter, and energy for virtually any purpose.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: Marvel Girl (aka Phoenix)
As a token female, Marvel Girl (civilian name Jean Grey) had the sort of super powers that seemed appropriate for girls, i.e., ones that didn't involve a lot of physical exertion (in contrast to, say, The Beast's super-agility or The Angel's ability to fly using angel-like wings).
With the rest of the group, she was introduced in X-Men #1, published by Marvel Comics with a cover date of September, 1963.
She stayed with it as long as it lasted, and is now intermittently part of a sort of Greater X-Men Community, an enormous and amorphous melange of mutants that come and go in the Marvel Universe.

 Save Spider-Girl! A HERstory
Marvel also decided to do this for other lower-selling titles such as Black Panther and Captain Marvel, which led to the whole "U-Decide" debacle between Peter David, Joe Quesada, and Bill Jemas.
This time around, Marvel tried to be sneaky about it by cancelling the title for a full month before announcing it to the fanbase.
However, the outpour of support for Spider-Girl had convinced Marvel that there was some value in the name "Spider-Girl." Marvel tried to do a "bait and switch" by creating a new "spidery female" character and calling her Spider-Girl.

 The religion of Jean Grey: Phoenix of the X-Men
Jean Grey originally went by the superhero codename "Marvel Girl." She later adopted the codename "Phoenix," after the Phoenix Force which endowed her with great power, but also caused her many problems.
Issue #1 of the Marvel Comics miniseries Marvel 1602 (November 2003, published 13 August 2003) establishes the Grey family as English Protestant during the 1600s (i.e., Anglican), with its depiction of John Grey (the analogue or ancestor of Jean Grey in the series) and references to Lady Jane Grey, the Protestant granddaughter of Henry VII.
While the shot lacks the melodrama -- and ominous image for the familiar reader -- of a flaming phoenix, the explosive chopping of the waves must be produced by considerable power and emphasizes the speed at which the ship is moving.

 Rachel Summers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marvel Girl is a high level telepath which allows her to read minds and project her thoughts into other's minds as well as form mind links that can connect her with another despite great distances or power inhibitors.
In conjunction with Marvel Girl's ability to astral travel through astral projection, Rachel can combine her telepathy with her abilities to manipulate time -- "chronoskimming" -- which allows her to temporarily transplant a person's mind and send it through time into a younger/older version or a close ancestor/descendant, or as a disembodied astral form.
Conversely, although Marvel Girl's telekinesis in raw power is below the level of an enhanced telekinetic like Psylocke, Rachel still retains the skills and accuracy in manipulating matter that she exhibited as Phoenix.

 Revolving Door of Death 03 - Jean Grey (Feb 1999)
I must grant Marvel considerable credit for the handling of the Jean Grey ressurection of the 1980s, for in the attempts to explain and clarify this matter, they may have outdone the industry in rendering a simple editorial cop-out into a baffling enigma within a mystery within a cesspool.
Marvel resumed the X-Men book with a story that dealt with the disappearance of the original X-Men, at that time meaning those members who appeared in the last issues of the original title back when it contained original content (during the acclaimed Roy Thomas/Neal Adams run).
Marvel Girl, however, hadn't appeared in print in so long that she still wore a cat's eye mask and miniskirt, characteristic of women's costumes in the high days of Marvel's Silver Age ascendancy.

 Marvel Girl (Rachel Summers) - Marvel Database - A Wikia wiki

After Bogan's defeat at the hands of the X-Treme X-Men team, Rachel was freed from his telepathic control and rejoined the X-Men, taking the codename Marvel Girl to honor the memory of her mother.

 Spider-Girl
Legacy is one of Marvel's first ventures into its Marvel Age line, which is initially focused at young and newer readers.
The collection is printed on regular, novel-type paper rather than Marvel's current glossy stock, which does the art many favors as it does not exaggerate the art or coloring.
Marvel has also inexplicably relettered the series, replacing Janice Chiang and Chris Eliopoulos' work with Dave Sharpe, who letters in the slightly defunct typecase style that was prevalent toward the second half of Bill Jemas' run as publisher.

Marvel Girl follows up the professor's attack with a mind assault, but in so doing, Wolverine allows his senses to take over and realizes this Marvel Girl isn't Jean Grey after all.
In his beserker rage, Wolverine uses his adamantium claws to rip through the body of Marvel Girl, much to the shock of his fellow X-Men, but as her body falls to the floor, it's revealed that she is clearly a robot!

 Squirrel Girl (GLA, Iron Man ally)
Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe wondered whether they'd made a mistake in joining, but Squirrel Girl decided that she was not a quitter.
Knowing Squirrel Girl, it is almost a certainty that she would have insisted on Tippy-Toe's membership into the GLA and the GLX.
Squirrel Girl left her behind when she went to fight Terrax, and Tippy-Toe was targeted by Deathurge, who sought vengeance on the GLX for being stranded on Earth and being trapped in squirrel form.

 MC2 - Marvel Universe - A Wikia wiki   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
It was set 15 years in Marvel's future, using Marvel's "chronological elasticity" to actually be able to present the stories in modern time.
However, Marvel launched a line of small "Digest"-sized trade paperbacks in 2004, with Spider-Girl being one of the two biggest successes in the "mass market" (the other being Runaways, which was reprieved from cancellation by the digest sales), with some reports suggesting that the Spider-Girl digests had substantially outsold the monthly comics.
In 2006, Marvel announced the cancellation of Spider-Girl at issue 100, and a Last Planet Standing mini-series, which would have been the end of the MC2 universe.

The Phoenix escaped and it came after the X-Men again, but this time, Scott had Emma telepathically link all the X-Men's thoughts to the Phoenix, and they overwhelmed it with their memories and love for Jean, and Jean was able to reassert control and leave the earthly plane.

Marvel presents the origins and history of its most famous creations, narrated by Stan (the Man) Lee, that stellar story man who saw comics as more than dime-store material and turned his characters into 20th century mythology.
Included in this expose of evil are Doctor Doom, Marvels answer to Professor Moriarty; the Red Skull, the only baddie created before the Marvel Age of Comics; the Green Goblin, a good guy when he's not being a bad buy, and a devoted father; and Mephisto, the complete entity of evil.
Fantastic, the Invisible Girl, the Human Torch, and our own shy, retiring Thing were the first of Marvel’s superhero successes, and without them, there might be no Hulk, no Spider-Man, no Howard the Duck.
