Kid Omega's Futures as Phoenix
Quentin Quire aka Kid Omega likes to be this anarchist/anti-authority character who thinks his omega-level telepathy, limited telekinesis, and genius IQ put him above society and after a few attempts to overthrow the X-Men, has grudgingly been forced into their ranks. However in three separate futures, Quentin is not only a full-member of the X-Men, but host to the cosmic powers of the Phoenix. In one future, a future version of Jean Grey as the White Phoenix is given advice on saving the timestream by Kid Omega as Phoenix who wears a green-and-purple Phoenix costume. In a another future, an adult Kid Omega is leader of the X-Men and host of the Phoenix Force, wearing a black-and-red bodysuit with a huge gold Phoenix emblem. And most recently in the events of Battle for the Atom, Kid Omega is the Phoenix and member of a rag-tag group of surviving X-Men in a dystopian future, wearing a black-and-gold Phoenix costume.
