Daily X-Men Sketch #10: Rachel Summers, AKA Phoenix II.
Next up: Bishop.
Caption: After that, things got better. Much fun was had by all, complete with some surprises. Ororo even cut loose with a surprisingly faithful rendition of “Proud Mary”. I”m surprised she even knows who Tina Turner is, let alone being able to perform just like her.
As for Rachel…
- From X-Women #1 by Chris Claremont and Milo Manara. July 2010.
Korvus: You don’t make any sense.
Rachel Summers: But… we have to stop this… Damn it.
- From Uncanny X-Men #484, by Ed Brubaker and Billy Tan. March 2007.
Emma: I love what you’ve done with the place, Kitty. It looks like every thirteen year old girl’s dream. Where do you keep the unicorns? And oh look, you have a redhead. How novel.
Kitty: I’ll hold her down. You carve us off some earrings.
Wolverine & the X-Men #10
Avengers Tower. Manhattan.
Logan: What do you mean she’s in five places at once?
Rachel: Exatly that, Logan…I don’t know how she did it…but Cerebra is showing Hope’s energy reading in five different locations.
Logan: You must done something wrong. Try again, Rachel.
Rachel: I did try again, and got the same results. Believe it or not, I know how to use Cerebra. So if you want to help the Avengers track down Hope…those coordinates I sent are all I can do.
Logan: What the hell is that supposed to men?
Rachel: Nothing…it’s just early…and using Cerebra always gives me a headache…
Logan: Look, kid, if you got a problem with this, then—
Steve: Thanks, Rachel…you’ve been a big help.
Rachel: Sure…no problem.
Logan: What the hell, Rogers? I can deal with my won people.
Steve: We’ve lost enough time already…and we all know what your solution to the problem is. What were you going to say that would make her feel better?
Rachel [psychically]: Scott…can you hear me?
Scott: Loud and clear, Rach.
Rachel: Well…I’ve got some information on Hope, and you’d better hurry…the Avengers are already on the trail…

I have no idea why Logan ever though Rachel was going to be on the Avengers side in this. She knows the Phoenix force can be controlled, she did it herself for years. Also, she’s Scott Summers’ daughter.
