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?

Everything is relative. And relative to Wolverine and Spiderman, she's clearly in retirement.@butterflykyss said:

@TheCrowbar: Of course... but I don't know let's see what Storm has to say about the box thingy!!!

Hasn't her husband returned to the Avengers?
 
Hurray Avenger Nepotisim lives!

I like Storm, I'd support her joining the KKK.
 
I would actually prefer it to be a lesser character, maybe someone that didn't care for the Schism/Regen hoopla and made a completely different decision.

Kinda makes me wonder if she's still going to wind up working with Wolverine, even though she sided with Cyclops.

I honestly wanna see them talk and how Wolverine reacted when Storm didn't side with him.

@webofthornns said:

Of all the X-Men she's the one I thought should be an Avenger, long time coming

me too.

@InnerVenom123 said:

Sigh.

rbsyjti will be happy about this. lol : )

@hitechlolife said:

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.

she's my favorite too. : )

Edited by butterflykyss

@jhazzroucher: I miss rbsyjti, even though i never had the pleasure of having a discussion with him/her. I really admired what they brought to the Storm forum!!! Those were the days when the CV forums were epic... I hope he/she somehow has gotten word of the great day in Storm's history

i started a thread about x-men in the avengers awhile back. guess we can add storm to that list now.

Storm, a Filipina mutant finally joins the mighty team : )

Not trying to dis on storm, the avengers, or X-Men because while not a fan I think their alright but...isn't this just getting a bit ridiculous? I mean almost everyone has been a member of the avengers...hell event the Punisher was a member of the secret avengers during Civil War for christ sake. Now storm actually does make some sense being on the avengers but their are a few things that annoy me here...isn't she still with the X-Men? I don't know about everyone else but characters being a multiple teams I always find to be rather dumb. Another major problem I have is couldn't someone just come up with a new character to join the avengers? You know...maybe show some creativity instead of just grabbing every character in the marvel universe and making them an avenger just to try and boost sales? Crazy thoughts I know I'm just throwing my two cents out there for whatever it's worth.

@cody1984: Did you have a prob with Wolverine joining the avengers? I mean they could have gone with anyone, but they chose Storm. I agree with you her resume makes her more than qualified to be on the team, considering some others who have come before her. I think its exciting and glad Storm is getting the recognition she finally deserves.

Yes I thought wolverine joining the avengers was retarded...I won't even comment about my feelings of the Punisher being an avenger either since that would be a really long nasty rant. Its nothing against Storm but I think a character should only be on one team at a time. If they join another team they should should have to quit the other one. That's just my opinion...for whatever its worth I think she makes more sense being an avenger then Wolverine does.

No I actually agree with you about the team thing. But if Deadpool and wolverine can be everywhere, I don't see why Storm can't/

Them being everywhere is the reason why I don't read comics with them in it since its pointless to try and follow their activities since they are all over the place and shouldn't be. They should fill their roles on a team and have their own book but that's where it should end...although that's just my own personal view and since I don't run marvel I can't do anything about it other then not support those characters by not spending my money on their books.

@cody1984: Like I said I totally agree with you on this 100%. I guess i don't mind as Raindrop, since it is now Storm who they plan to put everywhere lol

Pretty much everyone who wasn't registered was a Secret Avenger but I don't think they actually count as a team. The current Secret Avengers are the only actual "Secret Avengers".

@Stormultt: iam aloud to have an opinion , you dont have to agree. I just dont think she deserevs a place especialy when shes been a bit part player for the xmen so far this year. Sure they may envolve her more but thats the fault of the past xteams writters more than anything else.

@jhazzroucher: X-bolt said it best RECENTLY shes been barely active. Also appereances in games and films etc dont make any difference since iam talking about mainstream xteams.

Not that i expect either of you to agree.

Hmmmm . i think we've seen a lot of Storm appearances but not just a major role. but definitely Storm is not as active as before. So i'm leaning towards agreeing with you.

My point with that is the Punisher shouldn't have even gotten involved. The reason behind it never made any sense to me...it was just marvel trying to throw him into the major event to boost sales. As far as whether or not the secret avengers during civil war were a team or not goes...they were dubbed that by the media and did fight and work together. This site also lists the secret avengers origin being the civil war anti-registration forces. So as far as them not being team or not goes that's really a question to bring up in the editing and tools forum.

@jhazzroucher: thast kind of my point the avengers are all people who have solo titles now days and our always major parts of story lines, Storm doesnt have this kind of backing right now. Itf we where talking about 90's storm who was in everything x related sure but not now.

I wanted Storm to be more significant but not like this. I've waited all my life for Storm to get her big break but becoming an Avenger only to fill a spot at a time where so many Avengers have been haphazardly chosen doesn't really do it for me. I loved Marvel Adventures: Avengers because Storm was not only an Avenger but a founding member. I'm waiting for the  X-Men to give Storm that push that she deserves. Why does everything have to be "Wolverine and the  X-Men" what about "Storm and the  X-Men"? What about that? She's not even leading a good team of Avengers...there's a bunch of scrubs on that team. Jubilee is a vampire for godsakes....

That's ok. Storm becoming an Avenger is a big step for her.

You would think so but you have to think of how many characters have been completely screwed over in Avengers books over the last few years.

I know but at least, Storm is finally an Avenger. I have less hope for Storm to lead the x-men when Cyclops is around. Same goes with Storm joining the Avengers when Thor is around. But Thor is not around so i have more hope on Storm's better usage in Avengers than in X-Men. Besides, Storm is still in X-Men so her appearances in x-men won't hurt her appearances in avengers.

I understand that but considering the circumstances I can see why it happened. Cap and Tony were both playing dirty.

I don't know if you've been reading Avengers but this could possibly be the worst thing that ever happened to Storm.

@Queen Ororo: I know someone else said that because bendis was writing it, but i am optimistic!!! :)

Well, I'm really just being positive here. getting hyped! : )

I've heard it but I don't think writers would end up giving us bad stories all the time. Thor is not on the team. So i think Storm will have a good role. We will get to see which villains are gonna be interesting to have Storm fight with, how she would blend with the team and if she could lead the team. Her inclusion to the team is more of a good thing than a bad thing. UNless, everything's really a mess which I do not believe happens all the time.

Those other characters weren't the Punisher though. The Punisher kills his enemies and tends not to like superheroes and they tend not to like him either.

My point with that is the Punisher shouldn't have even gotten involved.

And the Punisher shouldn't have cared about their conflict at all.

Anyway were going off topic here if you want to continue this send me a PM.

Considering Captain America, Daredevil, Spiderman, Wolverine, Moon Knight, etc. have tried to talk the Punisher into giving up his ways or at the very least toning them down and the fact they have failed at doing so I can't imagine anything storm would say to the Punisher that would get him to stop or even to tone it down.
