    Still an odd cover to put out.

    So really any feat Rogue, Storm, Cannonball, Sunspot, Dazzler, Blink etc... does out of the X-books is something that they really cannot do in the X-books. All their feats are regulated only to whatever is done by X-books. Very interesting.
    Exactly. You said it 100%

    Saying he a "A" list character probably won't change the way Marvel treats him. His success at the movies will only give him a little boost in the comics...see most of Avengers line up.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    Support the stories we want to see through our wallet and not the ones we don't. That is the only way for her trajectory to change.

Look at Rogue she is doing GREAT with the Avengers fighting Ultron, Zombie Hulk, Monsters, The Black Order, Celestial ETC ETC. But look what happens to her in Gold she got taken out by a program. -_- Why bring up the point of Storm possibly being a Goddess then in the X-Books you knock her out for reason unknown. Why hint that she tapped into power amongst the Gods, but show her weak and low self esteem in the X-Books.

    There is NO communication amongst the Editors. Tomorrow Storm can move the cosmos in BP, but in X-Men they throw a rock at her noggin and she’s taking a nap.
    This is why we as fans should put our dollars towards supporting Coates and not ones that seem to devalue her character.

    The problem is not a lack of communication. More, its an obsession with Kitty right now in Gold. In order for Kitty to shine in the leadership position, they have to write down the older, more experienced members of the team, especially Ororo. Storm not only outshines Kitty more than any other character on the team in terms of experience, leadership, and powers, but other characters also outshine Kitty in these regards as well. Its all about propping up the favorite characters of the writers and editors and less about what fans want. Note the lackluster sales of Gold right now being in the mid-30k's for last month. That's TERRIBLE for a flagship team X-Men book that isn't a spin-off like X-Force or GenX. It just goes to show that there is a disconnect between what the writers/editors favor and what the fans want to read.

    To illustrate my point more, look at the huge downward trajectory in terms of sales: Gold #1 sold well over 100K, IIRC. The most recent issue of Gold sold around 35K. People are simply not buying into this Kitty Pryde crap, but Marvel doesn't care. Instead of changing directions, they just keep trying to shove the same old crap that hardly anybody wants to read down the throats of the consumers. And some peope wonder why comics are a dying market. Go figure!

    One more thing: As far as their agenda goes for trying to make Jean the Leading Lady of the X instead of a well-written Storm (and fans prefer a well-written Storm over a well-written Jean by a HUGE margin), if they had given X-Men Red to Ororo instead of Jean, I guarantee the book would have debuted at much higher than 98K. A lineup of Storm, Gambit, Nightcralwer, Namor, Trinary, and Gentle (basically, Jean's team minus the Wolverine knock-offs) would have had much more appeal to a broader and larger readership.

    But we have more dark skinned actors/actresses. You can start with the BP movie.

    I don't like it. But I love the fact that Storm is on the cover.

    Oh and the #1 issue shows Storm too.

    I agree with this...hopefully this issue will put some closure to their relationship. But yeah I think this is an odd choice for a cover


    Edit: meant to add I agree with weatherís post

    To me, there is a chance that this otherwise BLAND costume could in fact be redeemed by having the gold trim on the cape as shown on the cover. That helps it pop ALOT more. I haven't seen any other artists do that. So kudos on that. But that is all lol.

    It very much is an odd couple especially considering she is with Tchalla.

    The thing is the thing the other characters are doing outside the xbooks seem to transfer over into the xbooks when they appear there. The same isn't true for Ororo for whatever reason.

    Agreed.
