    You are correct, a bullet can kill Storm, but she can also protect herself from bullets (and other attacks) as she has proven in the past. Not only this, the fact that a bullet can kill her does not diminish in any way the raw power the lady has wielded in some of her high end feats. That power she can wield allows writers to match her against just about any foe in the MU and they could credibly have her win without any PIS.

Heck, Phoenix Force Jean Grey beat a Herald of Galactus by throwing a blast backed by the power of a star and Storm beat that a few issues earlier by throwing an attack backed by the full power of a star. That is nowhere near Storm's biggest feat, either. That said, I have a difficult time stating who Storm can and cannot beat when her biggest feats are brought into the debate. When you combine her powerset (she can perceive the universe as patterns of energy and forces she can bend to her will) and the raw power she has wielded in some of her feats, a writer can have her beat whatever threat they want to throw at her, including cosmic abstracts, without using any PIS. (This could be what Pak was referring to when he stated in an interview that Storm is one of Marvel's biggest powerhouses who can go toe-to-toe with anyone.) The last statement I made prior to my parenthetical sentence is why I feel that Storm could possibly dwarf all of the abstracts when she evolves to her full potential since it is arguable that she could go toe-to-toe with them right now in her human form based on some of her high end feats.Now, at the levels she is usually written at, your statement is correct. However, when you start throwing in her high end feats (galactic core, beating the Trion, sewing a reality back together when it was falling apart at its seams, etc), then that changes the entire debate and anything becomes possible.
    When Ororo summoned the full power of a star who or what did she use that massive buildup of power on?

    It shows the limit of her human form and why beings that are higher tier outclass her.

    1) She used that power to destroy a sentinel.
    2) Storm can beat Thanos. Just recently, Thanos was beaten by a team of Earth heroes who used a device which interrupted the electrical impulses in his nervous system. Storm did the same thing to Sinister with her power. She could pull the same thing on Thanos.

    She is more physically vulnerable than cosmics, but she has the raw power to fight them on their level. She can use her powers defensively to protect herself from counterattacks.

    i kno there are fans who fall on all spectrums of what it means to be a fan between most extreme to more reasonable and measured, but wat i do appreciate is that we as fans of the character can have a dialogue/conversation where we can respectfully disagree. its always fun talking with you guys about a character who has impacted our lives in varying ways .
    The Storm fans, whether they like me or not , are like my internet family.

    No she doesn't. Her attack on stardust didn't hurt him, same with silver surfer. She had the output to harm some of them but folks like heralds can't be hurt by storm.

    Thank you. No evacuation for me. I live on the 3rd floor of a condo. Evacuation is mostly for trailer home people.
