Synopsis:	The Enclave, trying to evade the police at JFK airport, run their
plane into a 747 and crash into Jamaica Bay, where their plane explodes
spectacularly.
	The Avengers welcome Namor to their membership, with misgivings on the part of
some. Captain Marvel notices the explosion at JFK and investigates mysterious
happenings under the water. She finds a cocoon which repels her when she tries to
probe it and which tells her, "Leave me alone!" Captain America says the cocoon
is similar to the ones in which She and Adam Warlock were created, but Captain
Marvel learns from Shinski that this cocoon is not his.
	The cocoon repels Namor, and then the entire team. Jan realizes that it is
acting in self-defense and that she can communicate with it. She calms it enough
that they can transport the slimy, silt-covered, Jean-Grey-encapsulating thing
back to Avengers Mansion.

Issue:	Fantastic Four 286
Date:	Jan-86

Synopsis:	The Fantastic Four return to earth after one of their cosmic
adventures. They arrive at Avengers Mansion, their temporary home, and are shown
the cocoon recovered in Avengers 263. When Reed touches it, it hurls him across
the room.
	Sue makes it invisible, revealing a woman. Reed sets to work and determines
that she is in stasis. He stimulates her conscious mind, and Jean Grey breaks
free, levitating most of the contents of the mansion in process. She thinks the
Fantastic Four and the Avengers are all robot duplicates created by Lang, and Sue
has to subdue her.
	They convince her they are the real thing and inform her that she has been
presumed dead for years (since Uncanny X-Men 137, Sept. 1980). She remembers
battling Lang's replicated X-Men (Uncanny X-Men 100), but nothing further. She
decides to find Xavier, only to learn to her horror that Magneto now leads the
X-Men. She instead goes to her parents' house, which is empty, and Hercules finds
the holempathic crystal that Lilandra gave them (Uncanny X-Men 144). When Jean
touches it, it replays her last moments: piloting the shuttle through cosmic
rays, the Phoenix force responding to her mental cries for help and offering to
save her friends, if she gives it her form.
	Captain America replays the record Beast had made about the Dark Phoenix and
its suicide on the moon (Uncanny X-Men 129-137). He and the Richards explain that
the Phoenix had duplicated Jean, body and soul, and her humanity ultimately
defeated it.
	Reed decides to call Angel and tell him the news.
