21. “Fantastic Four” No. 286 and “X-Factor” No. 1 (1986)  Members of the Fantastic Four and Avengers find that the person in a metal cylinder found under water is Jean Grey. In the John Byrne-written and -drawn “FF” issue, Jean remembers that when she was piloting that space shuttle back in “X-Men No. 100,” she let the Phoenix take her identity to save her friends. So that wasn’t her whom readers saw die more than five years ago (mere months in the Marvel universe). In “X-Factor” No. 1, by Bob Layton and Jackson Guice, Jean and the other four original X-Men reform under a new name. The series, soon under Louise and Walter Simonson, introduces the major villain Apocalypse. (John Byrne / Marvel, left; Walter Simonson / Marvel, right)
