Marvel’s Ororo Munroe/Storm has been at the center of a number of compelling stories over the years, especially in the recent jump from the X-Men line to the Krakoan era. As Marvel Comics revealed on Friday, which now features a brand new solo series. A limited series of five issues, Storm is written by beloved Daredevil and X-Men author Ann Nocenti, with art by Gambit’s Sid Kotian. In the upcoming series, Storm’s omega-level mutants will evolve in a radical way, causing her to lose control at a pivotal moment in her journey as leader of the X-Men. In the tumultuous journey that follows, fans will see Storm confront a new nemesis, perform breathtaking never-before-seen feats, and even fall in love!
Ororo Munroe has been a thief, a goddess, and a leader of the X-Men – and she’s just getting started! With her mutated ability to control the weather backed up by her top-notch combat skills, she’s a formidable opponent unlike any other (as Callisto of the Morlocks can attest)! But when an elemental force shows up near the Xavier Mansion, Storm will push her powers to the limit and beyond! Get ready for an exciting all-new adventure that showcases Storm’s days of rocking her mohawk and leading the X-Men, as she faces an all-new villain who threatens to tear her from her squad… and what she thought she knew about herself!
“I joke about how cool it is that Marvel is ‘bringing us old-timers back to sing our greatest hits’ for the LEGENDS series, but it’s really an honor and a joy,” said Nocenti. “Then when editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner asked me to write a story featuring ‘punk’ Storm, I wanted the story to reflect her outfit. I thought of punk musicians like Iggy Pop and the Sex Pistols, and their apocryphal rebelliousness. attitude. So it was exciting to start from there and think, ‘What would Storm rebel against?’ Her own powers? The X-Men? Being a team leader?”
“I knew it couldn’t be a classic Storm, always calm, regal and serene,” she continued. “It should be a wild storm running away from itself. And then I picked up a bunch of current X-MEN and really loved the exciting new places the X-Men have gone to, and was inspired by those stories. So even though this story takes place a long time ago, there are hints in Storm, Kitty Pryde and the other X-Men as to who they will become in the future.
