    In this scenario, Jean has no choice but to shut her brain down.
    Brainchild, Masque and others have all done it.

    Brainchild used a device keyed into Storm's genetics to get to her.

The fact that her brain has been altered or what have you should have no bearing on this fact. The truth of the matter is certain energies can be shaped to either jam telepathy (Magneto's power) or outright fry a telepath out of a person's mind (Storm).
    Storm's mind has been Chemically tampered with. YOU don't even know to what degree those Chemicals Cassandra created in that Vial. Jean's chance is to turn her brain off or stripe the chemical from here some way. Either way she's going into that mind.

    thought the issue was good. spoilers ahead....


    regarding her resistance to tp storm was sleep when cassandra took her mind so im ok with this as her guard was down and she was in a completely vulnerable state. also something to note storm took down the sentinel with one bolt of lightning while it took the team time to get it under control. lastly her protecting wakanda with a storm hovering all of wakanda was awesome too. csnt wait to see how the xmen handle this.

    That could actually be it. I mean whatever this Chemical Cassandara used on Storm and the people of india makes it hard for Jeans TP. Whatever, "Unthinkable" they are talking about can be anything really......

    You still don't get what I'm saying. Regardless of the state of Ororo's mind, the electrical forces she controls should stop Jean unless Jean gets the drop on her. However, Jean ambushing Storm like that is null and void since Storm is aware of Jean's presence and know the telepathic threat Jean represents.

    I agree. It's clear Storm was kept in mind with the premise of this story. It's very cute. I like it. And I shall now happily buy X-Red.

    This is very true. She shrugged it off pretty quickly, but it did temporarily affect her.

    This could be it. I have a feeling you may be right, and maybe what the solicitation for Issue 4 was referring to is Jean having to order Trinary to do something unthinkable to stop Ororo. However, in an open battle situation like this, I don't see how Trinary can do it based off what you said. Storm isn't going to just sit there while Trinary tries to work out how to fix her. Storm should win round one, knocking them from the sky. The team then goes in hiding until Trinary finds out how to fix Ororo. This is then followed by leading Storm into a trap ambush where Trinary can do her thing. I don't know, maybe something like that...

    Bish, yes!!!! Proof on the X-side of things that what Coates is doing had been acknowledged. BLUE, The most POWERFUL woman in comics, and the most BEAUTIFUL woman in comics, The Bright Lady, Hadari Yao, Queen of Prophecy, The All-Goddess who Preserves the Balance of All Natural Things, Weather Witch, Ororo Komo Wakandas, Windrider, The Walker of Clouds, La Reine Storm, Ororo Iqadi T'Challa, The Rightful Queen of Wakanda has returned in full effect. Hadari Yao be praised! Who is this writer?!

    All very good points. I'm willing to give this Storm story a try and see how it plays out. However, if Storm gets PIS'd, I'm gonna complain about it.

    Also worth mentioning, we've known since before Red came out the team's base of operations was going to be around Atlantis. Both Wakanda and Atlantis offered Jean sanctuary per issue #2, and they went with Wakanda since they all like breathing air. But with Storm "protecting Wakanda" she may have flushed them out down to Namor's territory where they had to stay since she can't reach them as easily there.

    Cassie likely got Ororo when she was asleep as Kyss and others have pointed out. If a TP catches Storm with her guard down, they can be successful. Of course, given time, she can shake it off.

    You know something, Ann Nocenti, an X-editor during CC's initial run, wrote a novel where she said that Storm was powerful enough to part seas. I would love for Jean's team to run into Atlantis to get away from Ororo. Then, after figuring out what the Red team had done, Storm parts the oceans and uncovers Jean's team's hiding place. However, by that time, Trinary would have figured out a way to undo Cassie's whammy.
