In this reality, Jean Grey was knocked out during the fateful spaceship landing, leaving Storm as the only one who could possibly try to shield the ship from the radiation and fly it down. However she fails, the only survivors being Wolverine and herself, now reborn as Stormphoenix. With no one left, she returns to Africa to find Ahadi, one of the tribesmen who worshiped her as a goddess. With him as an advisors, she brings the world under a benevolent dictatorship, where treaties are in place where no one can harm any living thing, human or animal. She also takes mutant children under her care and tutelage as nature's next evolution, who love her unconditionally.

Ahadi, Logan, Black Panther, Doom and Nick Fury launch an assault on the Helicarrier, Kitty acting as their inside man to let them in. They use gas on the attacking children, and use EMP charges to disrupt the helicarrier. They begin evacuating the children and thawing out the frozen heroes, but Stormphoenix arrives and begins deafeating everyone.

Stormphoenix is in such shock at the real Ororo that she does nothing as most of the rebels escape along with her children choosing the real Ororo, allowing Nick Fury sacrifice himself and detonate the hidden warheads in the helicarrier, killing her.

Well that was definitely something.

Really should be that any time a writer mentions the word "Phoenix" they're made to actually read the whole Phoenix saga. The WHOLE thing.
And then before they're allowed to write anything else, they take a test proving that they remember what they just read.

How "iconic" can the story be if no-one at Marvel ever seems to have actually read the damn thing?
I mean, Jean only went insane and evil and cooked them poor broccoli people was because Mastermind and Emma Frost dicked with her mind. She didn't start cooking people immediately after she burst out of the water. There were a good thirty-odd issues before that happened.
(I know "it's only a What If...?". That doesn't excuse it.)

Also, "Ororo doesn't kill".
So when she shanked Callisto, that was an accident?

Absolutely. And the Phoenix didn't start craving ultimate power until after encountering the neutron galaxy in the M'krann Crystal. Before that, she was just souped up Jean who tended to run out of power at inconvenient times.

Christ, even Spider-man wore a phoenix symbol once in the 90s. (He was faking) Closest thing to Wolverphoenix I remember was in the Wolverine/Spider-man miniseries, when Logan gets a gun that shoots a Phoenix bullet.

Outside of redheaded women related to Grey and their kids, Scott's done it most, being possessed by Phoenix in the mainstream Phoenix Five saga and the X-men/Teen Titans one-shot.

That's a lot of clenched teeth on the cover.

What... uh... what does being Stormphoenix's 'favorite,' entail exactly?
