The episode is based on Uncanny X-Men #135. In the comics, when Dark Phoenix emerges it is Mister Fantastic and Thing, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Silver Surfer who sense her as seen here. Only Strange is kept for the episode.


Comic Book Resources ranked The Dark Phoenix Saga episodes collectively as number seven on their top fifteen episodes of the series. They noted that the series was arguably the most popular X-Men story ever told and this was the best adaptation. They felt it was as grand as it was emotionally powerful. They praised the fight between Dark Phoenix and Professor X as one of the best in the series. They noted how it started off small then escalated. They noted that the episodes got perfectly right not only the massive scope but the internal conflict going on in Jean. [1]
