This Incarnation: Classic
First Appearance: Uncanny X-Men #168
Madelyne Pryor was an Alaskan charter pilot working for the grandparents of Scott Summers, where the two met during a Summers family reunion and quickly began a relationship. Mystery however surrounded her from the beginning: not only did she bear a striking resemblance to Scott's dead love, Jean Grey, but was the sole survivor of an airplane crash that occurred the same day Phoenix died on the moon. In addition, Professor X was unable to scan her mind (which, he noted, was occasionally possible among normal humans). Scott, still recovering from Jean's death, became obsessed with the idea that Madelyne was her reincarnation, eventually confronting her with his suspicions. Madelyne, furious and hurt, punched Scott and seemingly transformed into the Dark Phoenix. This, however, was revealed to be the doing of Mastermind, who had been manipulating The X-Men for months — as revenge for being driven temporarily insane by Phoenix due to his involvement in her corruption. After the conflict, Scott finally came to terms with the fact that Jean Grey was dead and that Madelyne was not her, and that he loved her all the same. The two were soon married, and Scott retired from active duty with the X-Men. It was later revealed that Pyror was a clone of Jean created by Mr. Sinister to make a mutant capable of defeating Apocalypse. The baby, Cable, was a powerful mutant but it wasn't before long that Jean returned. Madelyne later committed suicide in an attempt to take Jean with her after the events of Inferno.
