It's hard to determine how much the Phoenix Force influences its hosts. On the spectrum we've seen:
- "Jean" in X-Men #101 - 137 was not Jean, but the Phoenix itself inside a facsimile of Jean's body.
- Haven't read the issues, but I think the real Jean hosted the Phoenix in the 90's without going crazy.
- Rachel has hosted (at least some) of the Phoenix force without it corrupting her (and this despite growing up in a concentration camp, being forced to hunt down her own kind for extermination, and a myriad of other childhood abuses).
- And now the whole Phoenix Five has essentially gone from saintly saviors to power-hungry destroyers (and three became murderers).
How much can we blame the Phoenix here? There is no consistent showing.
When they brought Jean back for X-Factor. Ruined the whole point of the original story.
