The All Mother Goddess is featured on the promotional art of the Xmen 50th Anniversary event to occur later this year. The conflict arises from whether the 05 should stay in the current timeline or return back to theirs, as there is no certain way to determine if any harm befell them how it would affect the current timeline. It is worth noting that it has already been expressed that this is not going to be like Schism where its Wolverine versus Scott; conflict should be more dynamic than that. Additionally, Wood's Adjectiveless Xmen will incorporate the "Battle of the Atom" into his book, and since Storm is leading this team it is very likely that she may be a big player in this event and seeing that she and Wolverine are an "item" I wonder how this conflict will challenge their relationship. It seems this year will be a good year for Storm, really excited to see where things go.
I don't think its either of the characters listed. In fact, it has nothing to do with any fictional character at Marvel and all to do with the editorial staff at Marvel who do not want to see her with her on solo. @chalkshark I understand your statements but that is not all true. Gambit, Rogue, Emma Frost, Mystique, and Dazzler were all defined by their associations with the X-men and were given on-goings. If these characters can get solo titles, why shouldn't Storm have the same opportunity? It really boils down to there not being enough interest in the character on Marvel's end to adequately push or promote such a title.
This look makes a lot of sense if they're using the "Days of Future Past" story line. Halle Berrys version of Storm will be set in the distant future, so she needs to appear a little older, at least 10 years older than what she was in X3. And I believe the costume is probably finished. We're not going to see her in something super sexy or flashy with the emblem "X" all over her because Storm and the X-men are being hunted and Mutants are either killed or placed in concentration camps. The X-men aren't sitting pretty in a mansion anymore they've gone underground to stay alive. As far as the hair, i'm not complaining. There's been a couple versions of Storm with very short hair including the Age of Apocalypse Storm, which is also set in the future. Now take another look at the costume and think of Storm as underground outcast/warrior, battling everyday to survive or maybe a Mutant version of Harriet Tubman lol.
I must say that this is one of the most sensible statements I have seen since the photo has been released. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT POST!!
