Storm saw in # 11 that it can cause earthquakes and bumps, it really can control the five elements?

She can't actually. In Storm #11 she didn't directly control the earth, but used her powers creatively to effect the earth (it was an indirect byproduct).

Within the scope of her own power to manipulate the elemental forces that pattern the weather she manipulated the earth's magnetic field, and as a byproduct of that manipulating the field opened up the earth and drew up magma (similar to how Magneto created a volcano through his magnetic powers back in classic uncanny).

Though they have quite a few overlapping similarities Storm's power are quite different from say Crystal, who has direct control over the 4 classical elements which includes the physical earth. She can directly manipulate the earth, or tectonic plates to create earthquakes, control lava (well at least Crystal can between the two), and whole slew of other application with earth manipulation (effect gravity, create earth golems, seismic energy beams, etc.). Not as a byproduct of manipulating another element to cause these effects like Storm did.

Storm has direct control over a number of other elemental forces (air, water, temperature, atmospheric pressure, electrical and EM energy, potential energy, etc.), but we have not seen her directly control earth or fire (and some other related elemental forces like gravity).

I will say posts like these are why I don't post here as often anymore...

:(

Lol

Storm is teh maker of the univerze bruh! She controls all down to below the subatomic level. She can make rain turn into strawberry soda and lightning turn into cool whip... how you ask? Because she is--STORM.

@roddy010: when she control weather patterns on a global scale i don't see how anyone would think she couldn't tank a giant

You know how some people act when it comes to Storm. They'd prolly believe she couldn't make mini rain clouds if they didn't show it.

I definitely agree with everyone's comments about the art. Especially after looking at recent issue #9, which was pretty cringe worthy.

Like Lord have mercy, that first panel O_O ...

@Son Of Storm I definitely see your point as well. Now I need to know out if Greg knew about the upcoming Secret Wars and what that meant for Storm's solo...

That and issue #3...The art was just...no.

I'm sure he did. But he'll probably never say so.

I don't know. I get the feeling that Pak knew the series would only be 12 issues long. No matter how good or bad the story/art/sales were all Marvel would do is 12 issues......or he knew about the Secret Wars reboot that would take Storm off the list.

It's kinda hard to write a compelling character changing story when you know that it wont matter at the end of the day. Granted we got some kickass feats from pretty much every issue so that's a plus. And Pak does seem like a genuine fan of the character in all the interviews I've read/listened to he 'glows' like a Storm fan. So I don't really throw the complete blame on him. Could he have written far better and more action packed stories? Yes. But as I said before...would knowing that it'll all come to an end in 12 issues put a damper on the creative juices I'd also wager a big yes.

Hmm I can only recall two cases off the top of my head. The first being two jet pilots who found themselves surrounded by tornadoes that resulted in their exploding crash landing. The other being the one where Storm was injured and she used lighting to cauterize her wounds...she also used that same lightning to kill her attackers.

And a "honorable" mention would also be in the instance in which she was forced to do a mercy killing on a group of humans who were pretty much turned into an all you can eat buffet for vampires.

My lack of recalling the issue numbers scares me T_T

Yes that art look like a complete mess. At this rate you can pretty much tell Storm is ending with issue 12. From the get go Marvel never REALLY respected this series and that's probably because they knew no matter what the sales numbers were they were ending it at issue 12 via restarting the universe. Which in my opinion is bullshit but whatever. I'm happy we had a competent writer who happened to be a really big fan and Victor (for the issues he did. The others can fuck off) as an artist.

Well, is it only Storm showing up in multiple books while carrying her own ongoing? I know Batman, Spider-man and Superman does that but Storm is new so I think they didn't really expect the ongoing solo to sell well since she's also appearing on other books.

Victor is the best artist in Storm's ongoing solo. Good thing he'll be back in Storm #10. :)

B to be honest that really doesn't matter. Wolverine (the most obvious example) appeared in multiple team book and had like two solo's going on simultaneously. So it really doesn't have anything with how many books they are appearing in but how well Marvel markets them. And as far Storm's book they did all of shit to market it. Her fans did all of the work when it came to spreading awareness on this book.

You are probably right.

Do you also post at comicbookresources?

No I don't.

@son_of_storm: Lmao the feels...Luckily Victor will be back for issue 10.

Lol. And im infinitely happy Victor is coming back. Even if it is for just issue 10. A much needed break from the trash we've been looking at.

@son_of_storm: And looking back at the OP it looks like "Fry" can get checked off the list of creative developments for powers :-). And something I hope we see again soon.

-evil smile- yes b!tches!
