"The Dark Phoenix Saga Part II: The Inner Circle"

Original Airdate

Steven Levi 

At the X-Mansion, Professor X tries to use Cerebro to locate the X-Men, but is blocked by the White Queen. As the Inner Circle, including their new Black Queen, Jean Grey, celebrate in front of the captive X-Men, Wolverine emerges from the sewers beneath the Circle Club and begins to make his way upstairs. With the Inner Circle fighting amongst themselves, Cyclops uses his psychic link with Jean to enter her mind and try to shake Mastermind's control. But the White Queen senses his move, and sends Mastermind into Jean's mind as well. There, the two men duel until Jean appears, hitting Cyclops with a mental blast, declaring she's been set free. In the real world, Cyclops collapses, seemingly dead. Just then, Wolverine burst into the room. Jean attacks him, but when she sees him in pain, she is shocked free of Mastermind's control. She proceeds to free the X-Men, who attack the Inner Circle as Jean chases after Mastermind. As the X-Men gain the upper hand, Cyclops follows Jean to the roof, where Mastermind attempts to regain control over her. But Jean declares that Phoenix is in control, and attacks Mastermind's mind, driving him insane, anointing herself Dark Phoenix.
