Can't she come back. I mean she IS the phoenix. Ripping her heart out isn't anything that should put her down.

you know it was a What If? story right?
thats a story that whatever odd writer tells that shows how things 
" could have " happened. it wasnt an actual issue of Astonishing and
it wasnt by the people who write AXM either.
the events showed in that book never took place.

Sorry for being picky, but that's a double-negative.  You're actually insinuating that Emma would harm them.  But I know what you mean; even though a cuckoo tried to kill Emma, it doesn't mean she would try to kill them. 
 
However, that's the problem with What If comics.  They're always badly written.  The writers are given the freedom to do anything, whether it fits in with how a character would behave in regular Earth-616 continuity.  So you usually end up with nonsense stories, with characters behaving weirdly... and with a huge body count by the end of the story.  That's why I don't bother with 'What If...?' any more.

The artwork of Kitty ripping out Emmas heart was cool looking but the concept was B.S. 
I know it was said before on this thread that nothing like that ever happened to lame a** Jean Grey when she was the Phoenix.  
Why do so many worship her? She is dull, whiney, faints every 2 seconds. Constantly taunted Wolverine .Treated Scott like crap. 
OMG I could do this all day! 
I realize this was a What if?, and I know that Kitty can't stand Emma so her being the one to rip out her heart was not so far fetched. 
But when Emma said to them basically that Jean needed to go because she had killed everyone before, no one wanted to hear it. But as soon as it was her she was the Phoenix  
it was like they couldn't wait to kill her off. I guess some characters gotta take all the crap.

@Sabbatha: 
Don't take it so hard. This is just a sop to the fans as Emma will still be here after Second Coming while Jean will not. 
 
I think I actually preferred her death at the hands of Kitty compared to the one at Ultron's in the other story.

i know totaly pathetic thank god it was a what if  
but it was cool seeing emma as phoenix even 
thow i think they could have did a better job no one has ever 
ripped jeans heart 
out of her body 
and how many times has she became phoenix and almost 
destroyed everyone? 
this comic was pathetic and i wont  
pick another what if up

It is natural that Kitty yank Emma heart not Jean, since we all know how much Kitty loathe Emma back in the day
