Really Cool Scenes - Phoenix Sacrifices Itself

Now here is a moment that I think has been HELPED by a retcon!

Most of us remember how cool it was when Phoenix decides to sacrifice herself for the good of the galaxy.

Classic scene.

However, with the retcons in place, we learn that the being destroyed on the moon that day was NOT Jean Grey, but the cosmic entity Phoenix POSING as Jean.

Which, to me, makes the scene COOLER.

We would all expect someone like Jean Grey to sacrifice herself for the good of others, but in this instance, a COSMIC ENTITY that is just COPYING Jean Grey was still SO moved by Jean's example that it sacrificed itself.

That, to me, is much cooler (and stronger) of an idea.
