Hey Raindrops,

Storm will be featured in the Xmen: Gold #1 written by the one and only Chris Claremont! Go show your support!

Storm IS GOLD!!!

Something about Storm in that picture seems... wrong. I want to say she's just too slim? Maybe it's the fact she's wearing Ms. Marvel's old insignia. I don't know. Just seems... off.

What!?!?!?!?!?!? another appearance in another ongoing comic book? Oh yeah! Storm is awesome!

What's the premise of this comic? Looks like an alternate reality.

It's a one-shot book. I WISH it was an on going. What I would give to have Claremont return to the X-Men.

This book will be new classic and canon stories of the X-Men, so that is awesome. Storm was not mentioned in the solicit so I was initially unsure that she would be in the book, and that was surprising to me considering we are talking the awesome all-father of Storm is the writing this. But the preview has her in it so that has me excited. I'll reserve my full judgment until I get my hands on it though.

It is. The look comes from the time where Storm and the X-Men go into Shi'ar space to help Xavier, and she encountered the warskrulls. Here is an image of her look back at that time...

YYYAAASSS :-)....Coipel is awesome and is the BEST artist when it comes to drawing Storm.

CoipelStorm giving me life. How i have missed the touch of the X-Progenitors. A group of writers who actually care about the characters and stories that they're delving into (that is, of course, if the current Marvel creative team hasn't left sour tastes in all of their mouths).

#9 Posted by ItsDaveyJ (196 posts) - - Show Bio

I dunno if I would say Coipel is the BEST Storm artist but he draws a pretty awesome looking Storm. A little to thin for my vision of her personally, but he always makes her look fierce. Not sure if I like how he draws her with a mane when she has long hair though.

I'm a little concerned now... Yes she is on the cover but on Marvel.com it says this:
"Experience an untold, in-continuity story of the X-Men featuring Cyclops, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, and Rogue!"

No mention of Storm.

@itsdaveyj: She is there don't worry. She is shown in the preview pages.

Here is the preview link in case you have not seen it.

She is there but I share your concern too. I'm not sure what kind of focus we can expect since the solicit didn't include her on the roster :-/. If not for the preview I wouldn't get this book.

#21 Edited by ItsDaveyJ (196 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah that is my concern too. She might not be as big of a presence as I had initially hoped.

I like her current mohawk where it is a bit longer in the back. Her old mohawk did not impress me xD

storm with short hair is sexier to me....something like the comic book version of amber rose , she looks good with long or short...but short hair suits her more @butterflykyss what exactly does the whole gold thing mean?

the long white hair is best for Storm, then the mohawk

Is this going to be untold stories from the X-Men's past, or revisiting classic stories?

So if you haven't read the Xmen Gold book I would highly recommend it. There were two stories in the book that featured her and she was shown mad love. In the first story (by Chris Claremont), she was able to destroy a fleet of sentinels on earth the xmen were battling as well as sense and destroy a fleet of sentinels in space that were attacking the Starjammers ship. It was a great read, definitely a must buy.

#34 Posted by THUNDERBOLT30 (10313 posts) - - Show Bio

@butterflykyss: Agreed. Claremont gave X-Fans a nice touch of the 80's for the 50 year anniversary of X-Men. So much better than BotA.

I was about to pick it up, but the artwork on the inside was a turn off. They made her look like a man...and not a Drag Queen which is how I like my Storm...Fishy

Yeah I had mixed feelings on the McLeod art. I thought it was decent but Storm didn't look fishy. It was a good read though.

So are seven other characters on the cover alone. There's no need to make (or bump) a thread for each one.
