Phoenix doesn't need any buffs. Get rid of DP all together and give her health. Top 5 Character right there.
For this reason alone she doesn't need any buffs. People constantly undermine how fantastic normal Phoenix actually is because she dies in 1 combo, but then again, there are a lot of characters with more health that still die in 1 combo, and Phoenix is still better then them.
you do damage from more than just combos, that is where lower health becomes a factor.
Apex made me sad, because it showed to be true what every Phoenix player already knows: she's goddamn easy to counter now.
If that's the case then why did F Champ get 2nd place?
A combination of most people being goddamn morons and FChamp being able to beat 90% of the players on this planet without even losing his point character.
Why not just stop playing her for DP, and use her built meter on healing field? She is extremely resistant to damage w/ that active. I'm pretty sure it more than doubles the amount of life she has.
If i had time i'd test how much damage you have to do to her to kill her w/ it active.
Healing Field is a piece of **** that is only good for surviving the life drain caused by Dark Phoenix. Every combo that ends in a ranged hyper negates it entirely.

You have to keep in mind that these are still characters with personalities. Why would Phoenix want to turn into Dark Phoenix on purpose? Jean would rather die altogether than unleash DP.
I named the move "Overload" for a reason. The move her Dark Phoenix breaking through, not Jean activating the feature. The player is activating the feature, which is different from the character doing it. See: Frank West's zombies. It's not like Frank is finding zombies to throw at the player, he's finding them and dodging/throwing them.
