The Phoenix Five is a group of powerful mutants imbued with the powers of the Phoenix Force.



Phoenix five
When Tony Stark/Iron Man shot the Phoenix with a massive experimental weapon to destroy it, it merely broke the Phoenix in pieces, releasing the energies of the Phoenix Force and empowering the five nearest beings. Those nearest to the Phoenix were Cyclops, Namor, Emma, Colossus and Magik. The five of them absorbed each an equal amount of the Phoenix Force esentially becoming the all-powerful Phoenix Five.

Namor lost his powers while attacking Wakanda. He was then defeated by the Avengers because he had no help from the X-men. Once this happened, the other four became strong since the Phoenix force was only being split in four ways.
