* NightmareFuel: In order to recharge, Dark Phoenix destroys an entire star, killing over ''five billion'' D'Bari. In an instant, she surpassed almost every other villain in the Marvel Universe in terms of body count.

** Making this worse is that the Phoenix has, since the mid 00s, been treated as a horrific destructive force that kills everything and is a threat to whoever is it's host, overlooking the fact that A: The Phoenix became corrupted because of Mastermind and Emma Frost messing with her mind over a period of several months, prior to which Jean had been using the Phoenix powers with no problem, and B: Rachel Grey had a good several years using the Phoenix's powers with (relatively) no problem whatsoever.

The ending of ''ComicBook/PhoenixResurrection'' ameliorated this somewhat by indicating that the relationship between Jean and the Phoenix is bad for both of them - in essence, it made the Phoenix too human in some ways, and not human enough in others. The result was a somewhat mentally unbalanced entity with near unrivalled power and a fixation on Jean.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Wolverine's attack on the Hellfire Club. This battle is often cited as ''the'' moment when Wolvie established himself as a superstar.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Even though Jean's "Black Queen" persona was quickly ditched after this story ended, her [[EvilCostumeSwitch Black Queen costume]] is hugely popular in fan art circles. [[EvilIsSexy I wonder why...]]

** THIS is the story that transformed Wolverine from side character to the most popular member of the team. Mostly for the now classic moment where we see him emerging from the sewers, battered but ready to fight.
-->'''Wolverine''': Okay, suckers...you've taken yer best shot...now it's ''my'' turn!

** This story became the standard against which all X-Men arcs are judged, and has been retold and revisited in almost every media. Sometimes, it's the only reason a creative team will even put Jean Grey in an X-Men story to begin with. It's been a good decade since the last screen adaptation to not treat it like the only story she was ever in.

** This storyline is also generally considered the point that Wolverine started to become the superstar he's become. Specifically, the point where he re-infiltrates the Hellfire Club and takes the Club floor by floor is the turning point where Logan transformed into the badass he is today.

**Even more so, at one point, the mysterious Jason Wyngarde, the man who was slowly and carefully setting up the MoreThanMindControl that he hoped would bring the Phoenix under his control, is dramatically revealed as none other than old-school enemy Mastermind. At the time, Mastermind had only been seen as a recurring RoguesGallery member back ''before'' the end of the original 1960s run, and we never saw any hint of his outside life, let alone gotten a civilian name. By now, both names have been used for him for so long that for anyone who ''didn't'' begin with the original sixties run and read in order, the revelation comes off as being told that - spoiler alert! - that "Clark Kent" guy is in fact {{Superman}}.



* NeverLiveItDown: Jean's death in this (and resurrection in a later tale) made her the TropeNamer for "Jean Grey Escalation" before people started proving the point (by [[CompletelyMissingThePoint completely missing it]]), confusing the trope with either DeathIsCheap or WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity.
