End of Grey
Elaine was the last member of the Grey family to be killed by the Shi'ar Death Commandos having survived the initial attack. She was protected by both Rachel and

Elaine, her sister
Phyliss, brother-in-law Roy Dennefer, and various other in- laws were the only members of the Grey family not to carry the Grey Genome. Their deaths seem to serve no initial purpose. Phyliss and Roy were murdured so the Shi'ar Death Commandos could create an impeneratrable shield. Elaine was killed by an attack meant for her grand daughter. They, as well as the other relatives by marriage, were seemingly killed at random.
Elaine's body seems to be the only corpse that was not mutilated in any way during the massacure. It was
Scott Summerswho found his former mother-in-law's body shortly after her death. Elaine's spirit was reunited with those of her husband, and slain family members as witnessed by Rachel.
