"Even in an alternate dimension, her powers had grown to a point where she could accelerate the growth of plant life, and in an alternate future had become ageless and immortal as a being of pure energy. Can the same be said in reverse for PV? I highly doubt it." <- powers dont = in tune with nature...

These examples related to her connection to the elements and the points you presented earlier about PV. My point was that a writer essentially gave her PV's powers in an alternate dimension, because her connection to nature allows for them to go in that direction.

Here's the scan that relates to her accelerating plant life

@storm_calling: "Storm started off as a goddess of life and a force of nature. Where are you getting that she was created just to use those said powers and not be connected to it in any particular way? Please don't states facts that simply aren't true." <-- Proof of that then? Because last i checked she didnt start off like that...

@killerwasp said:

doesn't make her more in tune? Yes, she spends almost all of her time with her plant life, fighting for plant life, living with plant life, and other things. She's even tried to create her own place and it still got wrecked because of "humans". She's studied and tried to better plant life ever since she was basically born. Anyway this isn't just about storm connecting to plant life as the person had posted in the op

That's because plant life is all that she is connected with, so it makes sense that she would focus so much energy into preserving it. Nature is MUCH more than just plants. Storm's connection is practically with all of nature and its elements. She puts her energy into preserving All life on Earth, including the planet as a whole. She's housed Eternity and Gods within her mind, bonded with alien planets, dimensions, empty space and benign creatures like the Acanti.

Two different characters from two different parts of the environmental spectrum. Feats can be used to showcase the connection each have. This isn't a standard battle, so their will be no fighting between them." In her spectrum compared to storms spectrum. PV is thought to be better, when u have people who know only but little between who does storm reflect more as? talking to plant life or creating storms? ( inside joke but whatever XD ) Their gonna say creating storms not because they don't know anything per say about her, but because of her main powers. Does she still talk to plant life and such yes, but is it her main focus? No..

Plant life isn't all of nature, it's one aspect of it. Storm's awareness and connection to the Earth's encompasses PV's. It doesn't matter how little or how much you know about either character, the evidence presented here strongly suggest that Storm's connection to Nature is much stronger. It primarily encompasses both PV and practically everything else in regards to Nature.

@malachi_munroe: seriously? lol Being part of nature itself starting off a nothing but a human, and then within years becoming part of nature, feeling the earth's plants suffer and can be basically killed without being within contact basically by it or watered. That is more in tune than storm and this right here "doesn't do it often because most writers turn her into lightning lass" <-- is just straight up silly, she was a character based on one concept which was being able to create storms, and use lighting and a few other powers. That was it, unlike poison ivy who was literally started off as "saving nature" and having plants be her companions, storm wasn't focused on plants so yes writers have a right to turn her into a "lightning lass".

Another thing "lets say .. you burn a plant .. sure ivy would be mad, you nuke the earth and storm feels that and goes into shock, " <- burning a plant and nuking an area, are two completely different things, btw with people using chemicals on her plants and other stuff, she is still affected by it, and can feel their pain just as bad. As i said, storm can live without being in direct contact with "nature" PV can't..

Storm started off as a goddess of life and a force of nature. Where are you getting that she was created just to use those said powers and not be connected to it in any particular way? Please don't states facts that simply aren't true.

And being unable to live without water or plants doesn't make her more connected with nature, it just simply means that she relies more heavily on nature in order to survive. This doesn't make her anymore connected to nature than a human is. Storm's awareness to nature extends into PV's, and while she may not be able to turn herself into a tree, she can still sense when they're sick, or dying or needs to be fed. Not to mention can converse with them just like PV.

Even in an alternate dimension, her powers had grown to a point where she could accelerate the growth of plant life, and in an alternate future had become ageless and immortal as a being of pure energy. Can the same be said in reverse for PV? I highly doubt it.

Storm is connected with the weather in a way that they are considered one. They don't need to converse because their connection is far more intimate than that. They understand each other and operate on a subconscious/instinctual level.

based off of what has been shown team zaheer takes team aang in round one in a landslide these gues have taken out the white lotus like they where a pack of amatures pli has combustion power something no individual member of team avatar has shown copasity to take on alone sokka needed a distraction to from zuko and toph kind of got lucky so in one v one zuko has no, chance she takes him out and moves on to help the others. zaheer was apparently hell to deal with as a non bender now he has airbending I don't see aang handling a fighter of that caliber with just his airbending I give toph vs ghazan hes shown nothing but the magma trick that toph cant handle. ming hua takes katara down with her her high flying attack style she was able to beat eska and her brother and they were able to fight korra the avatar. kataras tough but in her younger years without bloodbending shes been somewhat hit and miss with her water bender vs water bender fights. with that it comes down to pli ming hua and zaheer vs toph and she is good but not that good. even if katara can beat minghua then she stuck fighting zaheer who beat kya like she stole something.

round two aang may be able to beat zaheer now with all his elements evening up the numbers so I give this to team avatar in a close battle.

Just because they were White Lotus doesn't mean they were high level grandmasters like Iroh, Bumi and Pakku(there are ranks). The ones they fought were more or less canon fodder and does not compare to the grandmasters that appeared in the original series.

Zaheer has shown alot of skill, but he hasn't had his Airbending for long. He's an impressive bender already, but I don't think he's quite on Aang's level yet.

@thunderbolt30:

Im on my cell phone so i cant post scans. All she did was throw him into a wall, pulled a gun on him, and started preaching about respect.....Bishop was NOT incapacitated. And of course if someone got a gun to your head, youre not gonna do anything that gonna get u shot. But that still doesnt mean that he was "incapacitated". Regardless of whether the team was holding back or not. The fact that he was giving all those so called "powerful mutants" (im talking about storm and psylocke btw) trouble by himself. Is enough for me to believe that she cannot solo

Yes he was. Scan above clearly indicates as much. And in case this turns into a debate about him being surprised. This should cover it.

I'm also pretty sure I seen Storm solo Bishop in UXF #4

Got it! #7! "In this land I'm a goddess. Every plant craves my touch. In return, they honor me with their bounty. Food, clothing, shelter, I only have to imagine it and the plants will gratefully provide." Yadda yadda yadda, miss Gotham, holy crap let's kill some humanz! Thing is, she treats the plants like sentient beings, like friends instead of tools.

Storm does the same. There are many instances of her literally having conversations with plants as if they were people and her watering them with her powers. When she once lost a communion with the elements she was able to re-establish it by going back to her plush garden and communing with it(thus completely restoring her powers). There is nothing here that Storm hasn't already shared with nature as well.

She stopped wearing clothes because she felt that nature protected her. She was also cleansed by nature when her body was overun by the Brood queen egg, and has used it to restore her body back to its adult self after the Nanny used technology to reverse her growth. She has even used her communion to correct mistakes in nature that even much more powerful ancient sentient beings couldn't understand in their own reality.
