Opportunities For Storm to Access Mystic Heritage

#1 Posted by Peerless1 (186 posts) - - Show Bio

It's been debated whether or not Storm should develop her mystical side and delve into her rather extensive mystical heritage. With that in mind, what would be some legitimately reasonable opportunities to really have the arcane aspect of Ororo's powers to be explored and utilized?

I think that if Marvel ever tries a Storm' ongoing this should be the plot of the first arc.

I think that would be a fantastic event. I also think that the latest Magik Dormammu Saga developing in the Wake of the Phoenix Five debacle, that it could be a first opportunity to bring in major characters like Oshtur as a result an opportunity for Storm's mystical lineage to be deeply explored.

I think it would be something to do with the role of high priestesses and that somebody or Scarlet Witch will help Agatha and Storm to develop their mystic powers in order to defeat an evil sorcerer/sorceress.

Why was this aspect never used in the Fear Itself Story Arc?

Probably best if a demon/evil sorcerer tried to use her body as a catalyst in some sort of spell because of her mystic heritage.

@westy206: Indeed. A Shadow King like attack by a mystic. Who Mordred, Amora, a Wakandan mystic, Magik? Hmmm . . . .

Belasco coming back to destroy her?

@jhazzroucher: Belasco would be a great blast from the past--or blast from an alternate timeline since Marvel is in love with that these days.

I also like the idea of Wanda and Storm having some interaction. They have hardly ever been on the same panel together though both share the "High Priestess" role of their era. It's amazing that they have never even exchanged four sentences.

Indeed. I'd love to see Scarlet and Storm getting along with each other while Rogue isn't happy about it. : )

Belasco coming back for her would be cool since he talk Limbo Ororo black magic. I also like the idea of Wanda since she, Agatha Harkness, and Storm split the high Priestess Marvel tarot card equally. Or seeing a story with Ainet, who initially trained Storm in the use of her powers and is herself a witch, tell Storm about her matrilineal side's royal bloodline and magic, their connection to Oshtur and Gaea, and then teach Ororo and allow to access the magical abilities and knowledge of her bloodline.

Indeed. BUt I don't think Marvel is really interested to go for that. There was a time/event about who will be the next sorcerer supreme and they didn't even tried to put the three high priestesses together.

@thunderbolt30: if storm gained magical abilities, do you think she can be powerful characters, such as Magneto, thor, jean grey...blablalbla?

If Storm was a villain then yes~!

#15 Posted by THUNDERBOLT30 (10660 posts) - - Show Bio

@abaldo: yes whether she was good or evil. Her mystical lineage includes a sorceress supreme so she could have exceptionally powerful magic potential that would put her well beyond Magneto and very likely Thor as well. that would compare to a PF powered Jean I am not sure.

i really wonder what abilities and powers she would have

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

I personally think Storm would naturally align herself with mainly white magics typically associated with nature, spirits, healing, etc. She already wields immense destructive force... I think those sorts of magic would help balance her out while not making her overpowered. I would really like for part of her magic to be tied with spirits and the like. She seems like she could thrive in imaginative spiritual domains. Plus this would allow her to have some solo adventures while still being with the X-men as going into other realms and spirit worlds don't necessarily require her to be physically absent.

Part of me is admittedly inspired from the Avatar/Korra shows though xD Hey I mean come on... she is master of the elements!

@itsdaveyj: nice. I like this idea. I tend to not consider the spiritual side that is often associated with magic, and I definitely see spirituality and harmonic balance being an area of interest for Ororo.

I really don't want to become a mini Jean Grey. Enough users have expressed how OP she can be. I think she's just fine but if they do decide to upgrade her... I'll welcome change, even if I am not a fan at first.

I'd like her to use magic but just little magic. I prefer Storm to be more powerful with manipulating the lements.

i think the new X-Men issue #12, has an opportunity for Storm to access her mystical power (likely), because they are versing EXtremely powerful witches, (enchantress, selene...)

dont know, just a thought.

Indeed. Hope Storm's magic shows up.
