Jean discovered that she could not control her new telepathic abilities, and she isolate herself from other people to keep her sanity. When she was eleven, a psychiatrist recommended to her parents that they must consult a friend named Professor Charles Xavier, who was actually a mutant with telepathic abilities . Xavier explained to Jean, but not to her parents, that she was a mutant, and he treated her for several years. During the time he built psychic shields in Jean's mind so that she could not able to use her telepathic abilities until she achieved the maturity that is necessary for dealing with them. Simultaneously, he taught her how to levitate and manipulate objects through psionic force. When Xavier judged that Jean had reached a certain level of mastery of her telekinetic power, he recommended to her parents that they enroll her in his newly established School for Gifted Youngsters.

Unknown to her parents, this school served as a cover and hide-out for the X-Men, a team of young superhuman mutants that is being trained by Xavier to combat the threats posed by other mutants who used their powers against humanity. Upon entering the school, Jean Grey became the fifth member to join the X-Men and took the code name of Marvel Girl.

During her revival from her coma-like state, Marvel Girl no longer seems to possess telepathic powers.....
