    And Thor's place in it...
    Like it or not The Phoenix being Thor's mother elevates him to greater levels in the grand scheme of the universe.

No it doesn't. If your argument is that being the son of the Phoenix is more lofty than being the son of an Elder God, well maybe (a big maybe) on paper -- but Franklin Richards, Jim Jaspers and Clyde Wyncham are more powerful than all of them, and they are mutants; technically human.

The only thing limiting a character's potential is the writer's imagination, and the only reason to add Phoenix to Thor's lineage is if it makes stories more interesting.

Which I would argue it doesn't. The Phoenix is cosmically boring.
