X-Men - Storm Pt 12, Mohawk Revisited by Femmes-Fatales X-Men - Storm Pt 12, Mohawk Revisited by Femmes-Fatales
Continued from part 11...

With her allegiances more torn than ever, Storm found herself in the middle of in-fighting among the X-Men and clashing values among the Avengers. Following the break in leadership among the X-Men, Storm remained as neutral as possible though she appeared to mostly take Cyclops' side in the conflict but maintained ties with Wolverine and his group nonetheless. Through closer inspection, Storm's decision to take Cyclops' side appears to have been done in an attempt to create positive change in the increasingly violent Cyclops camp. Shortly after the dissolution of the relationship between Wolverine and Cyclops, Storm faced another civil war when the Avengers took an aggressive stance on the arrival of the Phoenix Force. Instantly siding with the X-Men, Storm left the Avengers and returned to her real friends among the X-Men.

Storm's decision to side with the X-Men would put her at odds with her husband. With the Phoenix Force taking control of five of the most powerful mutants on Earth, Storm was nearly powerless in preventing a Phoenix-imbued Namor from attacking Wakanda. Feeling betrayed by his wife (a rather unreasonable assertion, I might add), T'Challa declared Storm his enemy and had their marriage annulled.

With her ties to the Avengers severed and the removal of her royal duties, Storm was able to re-focus herself into the X-Men. Feeling that they had become the antithesis of what Xavier once dreamed them to be, Storm has made her her mission to rehabilitate the X-Men and instil the values that have been lost somewhere along the way. Her primary goal appears to be to save X-Force from its violent unmaking and prevent her dear friend Betsy (AKA Psylocke) from becoming a total murderous psychopath. Only time will tell whether Ororo succeeds in her mission or whether she will succumb to darker impulses.

No, she shouldn't have been part of the Phoenix Five (I assume that's what you're talking about). All of those chosen were really messed around and had their integrity destroyed. It would have sucked to have seen them destroy Storm as well. But you're right about her will. It's VERY hard to control Storm because she's a very wilful woman. Obviously that's part of why Shadow King finds her so intolerable.

I wasnt a huge fan of the couple but I still say T'Challa acted like jerk. On what grounds did he annul the marriage? Because Storm sided with her teammates? Then he says that he cares abut her. Really, dude what is wrong with you? So how's Marvel Now!? I have only read three Superior Spider-Man and A+X.

Nice boots. I'm still deciding whether I like this costume or not. Terry Dodson made her look kick-ass. You didn't say anything about the costume in the comment box.

I haven't read a Marvel comic since the first issue of Carol's Captain Marvel title. Firstly because I am le broke and secondly because I feel Marvel's quality is just too terrible to bother with.

In terms of my thoughts on the costumes, I've avoided it for the 616 costumes because of the heavy biographical information I've put into each box (in case you haven't noticed :P) so I've been saving the info on the costumes for the eventual ensemble piece that will come a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong way down the road.

The X-men had dark times due to Queselda and need to be revived, though I wish BP and Storm could have been handled better

It's been a slow descent since Jean Grey was "killed" towards the end of Grant Morrison's "New X-Men" run and it's sad that the quality of the X-Men narratives has gone to the dumps since they were once the best written team out there. They need to go back to the quality they had during the '80s.
