Jean Grey becomes the Phoenix in The Future, and seems to die because of it.

The Phoenix Force is an immortal entity and is the prime universal force of life. It was born of the void, between states of being. It is the origin of all psionic energy and will exist forever in all realities of the omniverse. It is also the Guardian of Creation and of the M'Kraan Crystal in the Shi'Ar Empire. The Phoenix Force has the power to cut and regrow any part of the universe or destroy it entirely, burning away what it deems "obsolete". When the Phoenix was in Rachel, Galactus tried to take the Phoenix apart. When he put Rachel in the machine, stars started to fade away. Roma told Galactus that she is the embodiment of life. A Watcher tells him that if he kills the Phoenix all life in the Universe will cease to exist and no life will ever come about it.
