I am The One Who Knows!
This Phoenix is known to me as are all who have been infected by the parasitic Phoenix Force. Throughout my lifetime I have encountered many who have been possessed by it.
I have lived my lifetime over and over countless times and am well aware of this malignant entity. This particular battle has been fought many times over and I have emerged triumphant more often that not. Just like the Phoenix, I live, perish and am reborn again. Unlike the Phoenix, I retain my memories of past encounters and can change events in each ensuing encounter. Each time I relive my life cycle I learn and adapt thereby countering my opponents assaults before they even know they are attempting them.

Indeed. The planet Cybertron is in my sphere of knowledge. I have visited it many times during my millennia of existence. It's cavernous rooms and serpentine passageways suit my purposes well for the past?present?future? battle that is now or soon will be occurring.
The terrestrial Phoenix, Jean Grey, is desperately availing to rid herself of the psionic manifestation of destruction and mayhem. This is Known
I will use this knowledge to my advantage to end this battle decisively.
My speed is superior as I am capable of moving at light speed if needed. I can detect a photon particle from millions of light years away. It is simplicity itself to track the energy of the Phoenix:
Enhanced Senses: His natural senses, especially eyesight, are enhanced to a superhuman degree; in addition, his powers give him extrasensory sensitivity to energy patterns and fluctuations in his environment, and he can track energy trails across intergalactic distances
I use these abilities to defeat my opponent.
I slip silently and swiftly through the labyrinthian matrix of Cybertron, this metallic and sterile world of technological wonder. I use stealth to stalk Phoenix, and use my light constructs to confuse her divided psyche.
Like the villain Mastermind, I use subtle manipulation by showing images of her loved ones - Scott Summers, Logan, Rachel Summers (yet another Phoenix) in dire predicaments caused by her actions. Her psychic powers are strong but she is vulnerable to emotional stress. Jean Grey does not want the Phoenix to control her as evidenced by her second possession by this malevolence.
Desperately seeking to merge with Jean again, the Phoenix Force resurrected her and placed her inside a pocket reality inhabited by her colleagues and her loved ones, so to slowly prepare her for their reunion. Jean subconsciously saw through the Phoenix's farce, and caused psychic incidents back in the real world as cries for help. The X-Men investigated this phenomena and eventually located a gateway into this pocket universe in New Mexico. When the mutants arrived, the elderly Logan confronted Jean and managed to snap her out of the Phoenix's illusion and regain her true memories. Fully returned, Jean renounced the Phoenix once and for all, deciding to live life with the pain and loss that naturally comes with it instead of giving in to the Phoenix's temptations of a perfect life.
As easy as it would be to overpower the Phoenix by sheer use of force as my might easily exceeds that of this being I choose instead to deprive it of it's host. Once Jean Grey rejects the symbiotic manifestation then it is only a simple matter to contain it and end this contest.
As The One Who Knows
I declare this battle ended. I have foreseen it and lived it and this is the only possible outcome.
