Storm Joins the Avengers

The mutant goddess is finally becoming one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

More news from New York Comic Con. Despite Storm agreeing to side with Cyclops after X-Men: Schism, it looks like she's joining the Avengers.

Starting in January's Avenger #19, written by Brian Michael Bendis and art by Daniel Acuña, the mutant goddess will have to juggle her time between the X-Men and Avengers. When will she find time to spend with her husband? Actually, when was the last time they actually spent any time together?

Good. Take Wolverine off of a team.

Posted by VioletPhoenix

I would say this gives her and Wolverine something else in common as a bonding point but..Schism..looking forward to those awkward Avenger meetings.

This is cool, if any X-Man deserves this it's her.....think I'll just read this one, she'll have her introduction onto the team then disappear....;p 
 
Go Bendis for restoring my faith......:/

DOES EVERYONE SEE STORM WAAAAY FAR IN THE BACK!

Marvel doesn't care about her as you can clearly since she is in the back

Avengers is riduclous. She is loyal to the Xmen like Wolverine. This is just for sales. X-men FTW.

Preach! QFT.

I can't get excited about Avengers cast reveals anymore. There has been zero payoff for all the new and shocking additions to either of the core Avengers books since their latest iteration started.

And I'm a huge Storm fan too, my favorite X-woman hands down.

@moywar700: ud be 400% correct, they'd use her like a few times then she'd fall by the wayside...if u wanna see Storm at her best u read Xtreme X-men or the older Xmen comics from the 90s & before

Seems like this should have been a news article instead of a forum topic with two sentences.

it is a news article. its just in the forums as well.

No. It is a forum thread with 2 sentences.

I found the actual news article.

http://www.comicvine.com/news/storm-joins-the-avengers/143723/

http://www.comicvine.com/news/storm-joins-the-avengers/143723/.

like a said. forum version and article version. this is nothing new. if this proves to difficult for you, than go to storms wiki page and you'll see the one with the word NEWS next to it which will send you directly to the News Article.

Yeah. Read more carefully. I found the article prior to this and posted it in my edited reply. That is a news article. This is a forum thread. I of course mean that in the sense that this forum is not in the news section of the page hence the differentiation on my part concerning this being a forum thread and not a news article as per comicvine categorizations. You, of course, are seeking to argue minutia concerning the strict dictionary definition instead of the context of my statement. You seem to have difficulty understanding context and/or are simply trolling. You should rectify one or the other or both. If this proves difficult for you to comprehend then you may be beyond reasoning with.

It is spelled THEN go, not THAN go. I did, however, understand the context of what you stated irregardless of your poor spelling.

/exits impending, nonproductive, circular conversation.

Good luck to you.

wow. I really stepped in it. My apologies.

Apology humbly accepted with genuine gratitude.

@moywar700: But she is FRONT AND CENTER THE AVENGERS TEAM YOUR POINT???

Storm hasn't really had any exposure at all recently so this is awesome news! It's about time Marvel treated her for what she is; one of their most famous/popular female characters.

I so agree with this, but I would go on to say that she is Marvel's Most famous/popular female characters!!!!! So happy the offices have come to their senses!!

:D

I wouldn't say she's a goddess though. Even her people used to think like that.

This gets an underwhelming meh from me.

I actually feel bad for Storm fans, though.

THIS! Especially looking forward to how they deal with her current position (as 2nd in command) in Scott's team, plus that teaser for AXM coming out November... Can't help but wonder how they're going to manage make this all lead into her being part of the Avengers, on top of everything post-Schism.

So yes. Remaining very, very cautiously optimistic on this. I'm just glad that Storm is getting all these appearances in all these titles! Whether they manage to pull it off remains to be seen, but I think the exposure will be good for her. It's about time, really.

@butterflykyss:

SHE MAY BE ON THE AVENGERS

but she is so far behind

marvel felt like she wasn't important so they drew her far behind

This makes storm feel very insignificant

I hope she's campy like the 90's Storm. "EARTH MOTHER HEED MY CALL ... oh god a Box! My archnemesis!"

@TheCrowbar: I love the 90's Storm!!! YES!!! You are not so bad after all!!!

Posted by SexualLobster

I think she could take most of the avengers with ease. She can effectively lead a team. She's EXTREMELY powerful.

Why the BALLS was she not on this roster before?
