The Phoenix Force finds two new hosts, and the original Marvel Girl Jean Grey returns, in the second Omnibus dedicated to Phoenix.
The Phoenix Omnibus Vol. 2 continues directly after the first Phoenix Omnibus in The Uncanny X-Men #141-142, 168-176, 184, 199, 201-203, 207-209, 221-222 and 239-243 featuring the debut of two new characters who would take on the Phoenix mantle: the time-travelling Rachel Summers and the insidious Madelyne Pryor.
The original, non-Phoenix Force empowered Grey returns in The Avengers #263, Fantastic Four #286, and X-Factor #1.
The Omnibus also contains Grey’s further adventures in X-Factor #13, 18 and 35-39 and the Summers in Excalibur #42-50, 52, 61 and 66-67.
