Dark Phoenix

The mutants are all captured and put on a train, destined to be locked up. The train is attacked by the aliens - the human guards don't stand a chance and free them all, desperate for help. They kill most of the alien attackers - Jean Grey gets free and crashes the train, while protecting her friends with forcefields. Turning the remaining aliens to dust, she then grabs hold of Vuk and they fly into space together, with Vuk dying in an explosion of power, and Jean Grey becoming a force of pure energy, taking the form of a phoenix in the sky. The school is renamed in Jean's honour, with Hank leading it. Professor Xavier retires - Erik finds him in Paris and they play a game of chess together for the first time in years.

Factual error: The space shuttle is spinning due to a stuck thruster. In such a case, the spin would be continually increasing as there is no air resistance. The X-Men shoot out of the thruster and the spin stops. Not factual. They would have needed opposite thrusters to stop it. (00:11:55)

Smith: You're special, Jean, and if you stop fighting that force inside you, f you embrace it, you will possess the very power of a God.
