Returning to Earth with all her memories, Rachel finally managed to get back to the future she had come from. While she could not change her past, she and her teammates were able to change the directives of all the Sentinels of the era to preserve all life, thereby ending the genocide that had prevailed for years.
She even wanted to overpower him, but was left powerless after shortly being bonded to the Phoenix Force. Later, as an interdimensional portal transported four villains from the Marvel Universe into the Ultraverse dimension, the Phoenix Force was pulled into the Ultraverse as well and was critically damaged.

Needing a human host to help heal the damage, the Phoenix Force bonded with Prime and soon afterwards with Amber Hunt. She attacked her friends and would have destroyed the planet, if not for the arrival of the X-Men and new Ultra hero Foxfire , who after a long battle were able to separate the Phoenix from Amber and send the cosmic entity back to the universe.
Jean Grey would begin to manifest Phoenix firebirds and tap into its cosmic reserves several times but she was eventually killed at the hands of Xorn. It is not long before she remembers what she has come for — Scott Summers a. She needs to feed from the energy from his optic blasts, and confused by Jean's emotions thinks she's in love with Scott. Through a number of incidents, including Jean having Wolverine kill her a number of times, Jean trapping herself in a glacier, the Phoenix Force jumping into Emma Frost , and parts of the X-Men being trapped in a Shi'ar -generated event horizon , Jean Grey managed to assert herself and gain control of the Phoenix Force, with emotional support of all the X-Men.

Jean then declares that she and the Phoenix force are truly one entity now, have transcended into the White Phoenix of the Crown. This is signified by a new white and gold costume. As a result of a Shi'ar attack on the Phoenix Force, the entity is currently in an incomplete state and Jean must now search out the remaining parts of the Phoenix Force. The consequences of this were partially addressed in X-Men: Phoenix - Warsong in which a small part of the Phoenix Force joined with the Stepford Cuckoos. After nearly losing control to the Phoenix power, the Stepford Cuckoos developed a secondary mutation, in which their hearts turned to diamond and they were able to imprison the piece of the Phoenix Force.
With the failed attack on the Phoenix Force, which ended with Jean Grey escaping their suicide bomb attack and returned to the White Hot Room to restore herself, the Shi'ar still wanted to permanently prevent the ascension of the Phoenix Force.
In hopes of eliminating the possibility of a new Omega-level psionic mutant becoming a host for the Phoenix Force, the Shi'ar sent to Earth a commando unit with the purpose to wipe out the Grey genome and kill Quentin Quire. These Death Comandos arrived at Rachel's family reunion site and killed all the members of the Grey family besides Rachel who was marked and Cable who was not present.
Afterward, at the graves of the Grey family, Rachel vowed a terrible vengeance on the Shi'ar and was quoted as saying: "I'm not my mom. I'm not the Phoenix. I'm my own woman. And by the time I'm done During the last issue of Kingbreaker , the Phoenix mysteriously abandons Rachel and Korvus during battle with Vulcan 's new guard, leaving them both without its power. As it leaves Rachel mutters "Please, not now… Mom. Rachel later says that it was almost like the Phoenix was never with her for she "Can't feel it I can't hear it It's like it was never there.
Inside what appears to be the White Hot Room, or possibly just Emma's own mind, a woman resembling Jean Grey appears to Emma and helps her break free of Regan's influence with what appears to be a miniature version of the Phoenix energy raptor, thus letting her assist Logan, who has been robbed of a lock of Jean's hair that was in his possession. Madelyne uses the hair sample to locate Jean's gravesite, and then attempts to repeat a resurrection ritual with her corpse, but Cyclops had ordered Domino to substitute the body for someone else's and it somehow causes Madelyne to either discorporate or become absorbed into the fake.
During a conflict with several Predators X genetically engineered mutant hunters , the Stepford Cuckoos are overwhelmed and knocked unconscious as the fragment of the Phoenix they captured forcefully escape from the girls' diamond hearts, much to the horror of Cyclops and the rest of the X-Men.
A promotional image for the event of Second Coming was released depicting two versions of Hope Summers , the so-called Mutant Messiah — one angelic, emphasizing her role as a savior, the other as evil and surrounded by the Phoenix Force, depicting her as a destroyer. During the final confrontation with Bastion , Hope turns into what appears to be the Phoenix and blasts Bastion as Wolverine, Colossus, and Emma watch shocked. Bastion however manages to grasp Hope's neck, and states that despite his original programming, he will take great pleasure in killing her.
Cyclops blasts his arm, and Wolverine jumps on him, as he tries killing him "for Kurt".
Hope touches the ground again, saying she's ready now, going full Phoenix Force, blasts Bastion and the dome all at once. While fighting the fifth so-called "Light", who was out of control, Hope attempts to take some of his powers only to exhaust herself and collapses. She is then contacted by the Phoenix Force who refers Hope as her "child" and that the other lights needed her. Hope then regains consciousness and went back to face Kenji Uedo.
Due to Phoenix's words, it's implied that the five lights are all connected to the Phoenix Force. The Age of X reality was created when Legion 's mind reacted to Doctor Nemesis ' attempt to restore its sanity. This new manifestation of Legion's power took the appearance of Moira MacTaggert , in order to confuse Xavier and protect Legion. In this reality Jean Grey's Phoenix Force ability manifested causing a tremendous amount of destruction and death in Albany. She joins Magneto and becomes part of the Force Warriors.
When the truth about the Age of X was finally revealed, Legion apologizes to everyone before rewriting the universe and putting everything back the way it was. However, Revenant who should not even exist is brought back to Utopia also. During the Fear Itself storyline, the Phoenix Force appeared once again to Emma Frost who's in Utopia's infirmary after she was overwhelmed by the cosmic powers of Juggernaut who had become the Worthy known as Kuurth: Breaker of Stone.
The Phoenix soon began mocking Emma that Scott Summers would never love her as he loved Jean Grey revealing also that Jean had been reborn and that Emma Frost already knows it. This Phoenix however seems to be a side effect of when Emma invaded Juggernaut's mind and began feeding into Emma's fears. As the Phoenix manages to convince Emma that Hope is Jean reincarnated, it tells Emma that she knows what to do. Emma, in a trance like state, takes her pillow and heads towards Hope, about to smother her to death,  and she would have killed Hope if not for Namor 's intervention.
During the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline, the event has the Phoenix Force returning to Earth, presumably to reclaim Hope Summers , the "Mutant Messiah", which led to a confrontation between the Avengers and the X-Men on how to deal with its arrival. With the Avengers anticipating the destruction that the Phoenix could bring while Cyclops hopes to use the Phoenix Force to restart the mutant population.
Iron Man pilots the weapon against the Phoenix Force. But, when he uses it on the Phoenix Force, instead of killing it, the blast forcefully alters the entity and divides it into five fragments that bond with Cyclops, Emma Frost , Namor , Colossus and Magik. They defeat the Avengers and head back to Earth with Hope. When the Avengers manage to defeat Namor with a mass assault on him during an attack on Wakanda , his portion of the Phoenix Force gets divided between the other four members of the "Phoenix Five," making it harder to defeat them.
While Cyclops defeats the dragon, Hope is able to absorb its power and defeat Cyclops who then goes to seek the final portion of the Phoenix Force possessed by Emma Frost. In the final issue, the X-Men and the Avengers battle the Dark Phoenix, but they lose ground swiftly as the Dark Phoenix starts to burn the world. The Phoenix escapes Cyclops' body and enters Hope Summers'.
Together, Hope and the Scarlet Witch wish away the Phoenix Force and the damage it caused, in the process activating the X-gene that allowed the creation of new mutants around the world. Even with the Phoenix gone, its effects remain in various ways, with four of the former Phoenix Five - Cyclops, Emma Frost, Colossus and Magik - suffering from various problems with their powers as well as Magneto, due to his prolonged time on Utopia.
Cyclops and Magneto's control over their abilities has regressed back to the level of control that they had possessed in their first appearances, Emma Frost retains her diamond form but only has erratic control over her telepathy,  and Colossus' body fluctuates between his organic and his metal parts rather than completely transforming into one or the other. Simultaneously, while spending some time in deep space, Iron Man helps to defend an ancient planet from space pirates.
His selfless acts of heroism win him the heart of a beautiful princess, but he is later confronted by robotic police officers looking to arrest Stark for deicide. Before he is able to escape the planet, Stark realizes that the planet's people, known as the Voldi, worship the Phoenix Force and his hand in its disappearance has angered the population. At some point during the Time Runs Out storyline, Cyclops acquired a Phoenix Egg that he holds in reserve, hoping to use it to end the Incursions.
Cyclops eventually uses the Phoenix Egg to become one with the Phoenix Force again and uses his powers to decimate the Children of Tomorrow. It has since been revealed that thousands of years ago, the civilization of planet Maveth was able to create a bomb that, when used, scorched the entire surface of the planet, killing all life within a generation; however a second bomb was discovered by Gamora who had been apparently contacted by the bomb itself after she had submitted to The Black Vortex and Kitty Pryde to be hidden in the tomb of Maveth's king, which in turn was also being sought by the Chitauri.
To Kitty's surprise, the bomb was actually an artifact that contained a fragment of the Phoenix Force. In order to escape from the Chitauri alive, Kitty accidentally activated the bomb, which killed the Chitauri and apparently released the fragment of the Phoenix Force into the Universe again. The deities of the Shi'ar, Sharra , and K'ythri , can summon at will the entity and consider itself as their sister. Under unknown circumstances, Terrax the Tamer acquired a Phoenix Egg and stored it on his warship.
Thane eventually learned about this, and deceived his allies the Champion , Starfox and Nebula into helping him invade Terrax's warship to steal the egg. Using his new powers, Thane defeated his own father and conquered the Black Quadrant. The Phoenix Force flew off and presumably left the God Quarry. While on a solo mission against the Wrecking Crew , teen Jean receives a vision that the Phoenix Force is coming back to Earth  and determined to not succumb to the fate that befell her adult counterpart, Jean tries to fight the future and forge her own destiny, and when the Phoenix finally arrives, teen Jean, backed by a host of former Phoenix Force wielders, Emma Frost, Quentin Quire, Hope Summers, the Stepford Cuckoos and even the spirit of the adult Jean Grey, tries to defy destiny and stop the Phoenix before it can take her over and bent her to its will and while she is able to wound the Phoenix with the aid of Cable's Psi-mitar, the Phoenix seems just too strong for anyone to overcome.
Teen Jean eventually managed to push the cosmic force far away from her friends and allies, where a final battle can take place. However, both Jean Greys soon realize how wrong they were, as the Phoenix was never coming for teen Jean, at least not like they believed. Actually, the Phoenix wants the adult Jean, but to do that it needs the young Jean out of the way. Thus, the force floods her body with flaming psychic energy, incinerating her from the inside out, leaving only a skeleton.
Strange psychic occurrences around the world, which includes a large bird flaring out from the sun and an explosion on the moon, raises red flags for the X-Men, who quickly launch an investigation on these events. As they find the coffin of their long-dead teammate empty, they race to locate the Phoenix Force before it can find a suitable host.
As it turns out, with the time-displaced teen Jean Grey out of the Phoenix Force's way, the cosmic entity had already resurrected the present adult Jean Grey. However, she does not recall her life as a mutant and an X-Man, and terrible visions from her previous life have left Jean unsure of the differences between reality and fiction.
Alive once again, Jean is reunited with her friends as the Phoenix Force journeys back into space. Other characters were only possessed by the Phoenix Force during out-of-continuity tales. The Phoenix Force can manipulate cosmic energies and tap into the life-force reserved for future generations, thus denying them existence. It can wield this energy to project beams of immense destructive force. It can migrate throughout time and space by folding its energy back into itself, causing it to collapse akin to a black hole and then reform itself upon reaching its destination.

It can directly absorb energy such as Cyclops ' optic blasts or absorb the energy and life-force from a foe. As it is the nexus of all psionic energy, it has mental abilities of cosmic scope, including telepathy and telekinesis. The extent of the Phoenix Force's abilities has not been fully clarified. Jean Grey as The White Phoenix of the Crown was able to change the future of a universe by reaching back in time and pushing her husband Cyclops to move on with his life.
Another major display of the power of the Phoenix was during the Secret Wars II, when the nearly omnipotent Beyonder wanted to destroy all life. Rachel Summers , who was the avatar of the Phoenix Force at that time, sought to kill the Beyonder. The Beyonder expressed both amazement and disappointment to Rachel, claiming that she denies herself her own glory when she can be so much more.

With that, the Beyonder gave Rachel the full access to the power of the Phoenix as well as some of his own. With such power, Rachel was able to absorb the consciousness of every sentient mortal being in the universe, and when expelling the sum total of the power back at the Beyonder, the input felt overwhelming even to his senses. The Phoenix often seeks hosts with strong inherent psionic abilities so they can withstand its power.
When the Phoenix Force enters a host, a small fragment of its power is left behind when it leaves. Even a small fragment can be stronger than an inexperienced host using the Phoenix Force's powers; as seen by Rachel Summers, who had full access to the Force, but her opponent Necrom threw moons at her with only a fragment. It can manipulate matter on a sub-atomic level and transmute elements, like turning wood to gold or stone to crystal. It can teleport others across space and open interdimensional portals to instantly access distant portions of the Universe.
If an avatar of the Phoenix Force is harmed or killed, it will form an "egg" of cosmic power, incubate in the White Hot Room, and hatch out completely healed. Also, as one of the oldest cosmic beings the Phoenix Force possesses a high level of cosmic awareness and prescience. In the 31st century in the Guardians of the Galaxy comics series, ordinary human Giraud of New Haven becomes host to the Phoenix Force. As Phoenix, Giraud is a rarity for a Phoenix host; since he is an ordinary human with no active magic or psionic abilities — only those powers granted him directly by the Phoenix Force.
In the Age of Apocalypse reality, after Jean Grey's death at the hands of Havok , nuclear bombs set to destroy America were suddenly destroyed by a bird-like display of fiery psionic power. It was Jean, awakened as the Phoenix known as "Mutant Alpha", the legendary ultimate mutant. Sinister captured Phoenix, and brainwashed her into becoming one of his Sinister Six. Phoenix generated so much heat that even Sunfire was nearly burned to death, but Psylocke used her psychic knife to bring her to her senses.
Jean used the Phoenix Force to incinerate her former "master", and became leader of the X-Men in Magneto 's absence. Though the origins and history of Phoenix of Earth match that of her Earth counterpart, the following information has been revealed by both 3-D Man Kyle Richmond and the Watchman X : The Phoenix Force was originally a citizen of the first universe that existed prior to the Big Bang that created the current universe in which Earth resides. This original universe collapsed due to the manipulations and reproduction of the Celestial race.
There were a number of survivors who were referred to as "The Elders of the Universe", the Phoenix Force being one of these elders. It was later revealed that the Elders plotted to reunify the fragmented universe and all its parallel universe and alternate history counterparts through the Realm of the Dead and with the aid of Death.
The Phoenix Force was a part of this plot to reverse the damage the Celestials had already created. It was foreseen that eventually Death would be destroyed and that an Elder of the Universe would have to live in the Realm of the Dead in order to facilitate the collection of souls, which was at least one important step in reunifying the broken universe. As the Elders were all nearly immortal and could not die, the Phoenix Force had to bond itself to a being that would be capable of sacrificing itself for others. This being was Jean Grey of the X-Men, who during a mission in space was the lone pilot of a space shuttle traveling through a radiation storm while her comrades were in a shielded room.
Unable to bond with the severely burned body of Jean Grey, it became a binary being with her, assuming her identity, personality and physical form and sealing her charred body in a cocoon to heal. When the shuttle crashed the cocoon remained at the bottom of Jamaica Bay, and the Phoenix Force took Jean's place. Eventually the Phoenix sacrificed her life and the real Jean Grey returned. The Phoenix ended up in Death's realm, still in the guise of Jean Grey, and was one of the few beings in this realm that were aware that they were indeed dead Citizens in the Realm of the Dead believe that they and those are around them are still alive, while others who are not present are deceased.
She eventually joined up with Mar-Vel's army to battle Death and her army. During this time, Scott Summers new Mr. S, leader of the X-Men, who was assisting Mar-Vel in the land of the living was able to establish a mental rapport with the Phoenix and kept him informed as to the goings on in the Realm of the Dead and later Mar-Vel's Paradise.

This soon became a great aid to Reed Richards and others who were trying to determine why the mortally wounded would no longer die following Death's death. After the creation of Mar-Vel's Paradise, Phoenix became one of the Avenging Host, a group of former champions who were transmogrified by technology once belonging to the High Evolutionary. They were to act as guardian angels to those in Paradise and help those in the Realm of the Dead realize that they were indeed dead so that they could travel over to Paradise and live out their perfect afterlife.
During her time as one of the Avenging Host, its members began to doubt Mar-Vel's intentions, believing that he was no aware that he had no idea what occurred outside Paradise, that as it grew it threatened to consume the Negative Zone.
