Jean Grey Vs Scarlet Witch: Who Is Stronger?

Scarlet Witch is known for her Chaos Magic, which helps her to alter reality. Both of them are among the strongest female superheroes in X-Men. The fans are quite curious to know who will win if a fight happens between both of their favorites, Jean Grey and Scarlet Witch.
In X-Men Forever 2, Wanda easily fought with the X-Men that included Jean Grey with great ease. If the Phoenix Force was not included, then the answer to who among them is the strongest would have been a very easy guess. Among all the people who possessed the Phoenix Force, its power is more when it is with Jean. The Phoenix Force is a multiversal power entity that has the most power if possessed by a capable person. The Phoenix Force can easily turn anyone who competes with the person possessing it into ashes.
Also when it comes to coping with the mental strain after the use of all the powers and abilities, Scarlet Witch would not be able to cope with it that much like Jean Grey.
If the Phoenix Forces were not possessed by Jean Grey, then no matter how much telekinetic and telepathic powers she tries to use, Scarlet Witch’s power would have easily defeated her. But Jean Grey’s ‘Phoenix Force’ can easily defeat Scarlet Witch’s ‘Chaos Magic’ if they were to fight against each other. Jean grey is also considered a threat to the whole Marvel Universe.
