Is it just me or does it seem like the writers don't quite grasp the connection of Jean Grey with the Phoenix in actual comic time rather than the mystique given her and the concept of the Phoenix.
It seems like a lot of things the Phoenix has done by the current writers is attributed to the real Jean Grey, which isn't correct since all the "Jean Grey as the Phoenix" was done by the phoenix force itself disguised as Jean. Jean has been credited with dying a lot when technically, she's really only died...well once (if you don't count Phoenix Endsong, cause who knows what context of continuity that story takes part in anymore).
Jean was put in suspended animation by the Phoenix because she WAS dying when trying to pilot the space ship back to earth and was dying from radiation poisoning.
She was revived by the FF and was the founding member of X-Factor.
When in X-Factor she started out with only her base powers, telekinesis. She would much later regain telepathy.
It wasn't until the New X-Men series she started showing Phoenix level powers again and when she fully gained them she was killed by Xorneto.
In End Song the Phoenix force sorta resurrected her for a short time but was forced to flee and her body was rendered inanimated again.
When has Jean Grey actually done any other dying other than this or herself actually had the Phoenix force powers?
