  Madinkbeard » Phoenix 7 and 8
As a whole the series is an epic of gigantic proportions, tracking themes and characters across centuries, but each individual story (well most of them) are themselves epic stories that can be read as singular entities (though much of the greater resonance of the stories is lost outside the context of the whole).
All of them have some kind of crossing of paths with the mythical Phoenix, the immortal bird that dies and is reborn.
On the higher level, the reader sees these characters undergo the same death and rebirth as the Phoenix when we see the characters dying and living again as different people in the stories.

The Phoenix’s role as a cosmic power has typically been an integral element in the utilization of her character; as such, its emergence would be showcased as a major event.
As significant as the Phoenix has been in X-Men history, an examination of the interpersonal angle may not seem substantial enough to be the forefront of a story arc.
As the Phoenix speaks, there is foreshadowing towards the possibility that its emotional ties to the X-Men may very well be the catalyst for the upcoming event.

But then Phoenix fell victim to psychic manipulation by Mastermind, who was attempting to prove his worthiness to become a member of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club by mesmerizing Phoenix into becoming its new Black Queen.
Phoenix finally freed herself of Mastermind's control, but was unable to prevent the dark side of Grey's personality with the full power of the phoenix-force behind it, from overwhelming her, not having had the training necessary to repress it.
When Phoenix committed suicide, it was acting exactly as Grey herself would have done under the circumstances, since it had endowed itself with an exact copy of Grey's personality.

At the end of X2, however, Jean showed herself capable of lifting a jet with her telekinetic powers, so Bobby's uses seem to be mostly as a decoy and delay (he could maybe hold her for a few seconds in a very, very thick sphere of ice).
Phoenix, however, could be easilly protected by a telekinetic force shield.
So, my final conclusion is, of course, that like in the comics Phoenix can only be ultimately stopped by suicide, but we should see some pretty cool effects in the meantime.

It is said that the phoenix's blood can grant immortality and in all the stories Tezuka's common themes of pacifism, humanism as well as corrupt leaders come heavily into play.
Phoenix is often referred to as Tezuka's life work -- at 12 volumes, it was left uncompleted at the time of his death but Tezuka put a lot of himself and his philosophy into those volumes.
Phoenix tells tremendous stories that contemplate violence, prejudice and the selfishness of humanity that still manages an optimistic, hopeful tone.

Keep in mind that in the comics' "Dark Phoenix Saga," even when she was at the height of insanity, Dark Phoenix did not intentionally destroy that inhabited planet:  replenishing her powers by triggering a supernova, she was oblivious to its destruction of the D'Bari's world.
In the comics Jean does not ask someone else to kill her:  she kills herself.  The movie Jean is a pathetic victim, not strong enough to put an end to her own rampage.  The comics Jean is a self-sacrificing heroine.
Following Phoenix's demise, both the movie and the book come to their conclusion.  But the movie is less successful in wrapping up the "cure" storyline than the book is.  Was the "cure" a good or bad thing?  Claremont's novel states that Warren Worthington, Jr.

As more comics retailers realize this, and are willing to take a chance on the "little guys", the entire genre will see substantial growth and vitalization.
It is very important as a comics retailer to become familiar, and involved, if you're inclined, with the Friends of Lulu organization, which is a national non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and encourage female readership and participation in the comic book industry.
