* LiteralDisarming: The "Judgement War" storyline culminates in Jean absorbing the energy of the alien factions of the planet where the arc took place, and transfering it to Scott to stop the Celestials' judgement. A cosmic symbol imprited on Arishem's hand could start the judgement process if his verdict was negative, so Cyclops destroyed the hand with a powered-up optic blast.

In addition to all that, it just so happened that a recently [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] ComicBook/{{Magneto}} had been put in charge of the X-Men by Charles Xavier before the later left Earth for some years. And more importantly, it turned out that ComicBook/JeanGrey had not died a few years before. She was found sleeping in an escape pod in Jamaica Bay by TheAvengers, who brought her to [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]]. They all learned, including Jean herself, that the Jean Grey who became Phoenix early in Creator/ChrisClaremont's run and died in ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga actually ''was'' the Phoenix, who replaced Jean in Stephen Lang's platform.

** Jamie constantly uses his [[MesACrwod dupes]] like this, sending them out to learn and explore the world, creating them on the other side of locked doors, playing duets on piano (pity the only song he knows is "Chopsticks") and doing super-babysitting.

* BatFamilyCrossover: ''ComicBook/{{Inferno}}'' and ''X-Tinction Agenda'' involved X-Factor, the X-Men and the ComicBook/NewMutants. ''The Muir Island Saga'' led directly to the major lineup changes. Often lampshaded during the government era, as the new cast usually doesn't fit in with the X-Men's tendencies toward DarkerAndEdgier and {{Wangst}}. Doc Samson comments that they're "refreshingly normal" for a mutant team, and Strong Guy's wisecracking during the otherwise grim ''X-Cutioner's Song'' crossover leads Havok to say, "stop it, you're embarrassing me." During the Phalanx Covenant crossover, Strong Guy comments on how he hasn't even met most of the roster of the other X-Books.

* EpiphanyTherapy: An issue has the team engaging in therapy with Doc Samson (the universe's resident superhero psychiatrist). It helps some of them a little, and makes no difference to others. Then much of the original team goes back to him... and it's noted by Samson that they're significantly more messed up.



* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: Jean gets the original team together to find a way to help mutants again (unfortunately Cameron Hodge takes advantage of that, among other things).

* FaceHeelTurn: Angel was brainwashed by Apocalypse into becoming the Horseman of Death; Caliban willingly joined Apocalypse to get a power-up for his revenge against the Marauders; Madelyne Pryor's sanity slipped after realizing she was Sinister's experiment all along; Havok was turned into the Goblin Prince by Madelyne. Angel/Archangel and Havok [[HeelFaceTurn came back, though]]. As did Caliban, but not until well after his incarnation in X-Factor.
