When Empress Lilandra teleported the X-Men to the Blue Area of the Moon and sentenced to death Phoenix to ensure the safety of the universe, the mutants challenged the Shi'ar Imperial Guard to trial by combat for the life of their friend. Suddenly appearing from the Hyborian Age, Conan mistook the Phoenix for his beloved Red Sonja and took out Cyclops with a large rock, sufficiently shattering the psychic rapport shared with Phoenix. Without that rapport, and without Wolverine to hurl Colossus at her, nothing prevented Jean Grey from transforming utterly and completely into her dark persona before she could destroy herself, unleashing the full fury of Phoenix[1].
