    what Rachel actually is/was? Was Rachel's Mom actually Jean Grey merged with the Phoenix; or was she the Phoenix posing as Jean Grey? I think the retcon (the Phoenix posing as Jean Grey) was in play during Rachel's debut.

At her debut (in 1980), she was simply Jean's daughter. There was no Phoenix Force/Entity nonsense. But this was later changed to her mom being the Jeanix of DoFP.

Not really sure when Claremont decided he wanted turn her into a child of the Phoenix, but that's never explicitly been canon. Canonically, all evidence still points to her being Scott and Jean's daughter. There is only the suggestion (and it is only a suggestion) that Scoot isn't her father from the Days of Future Present annuals. However, there is physical evidence from Excalibur that shows her to have Summers DNA. Of course, there's also evidence that she can telekinetically alter her DNA to turn herself into a dinosaur.
