    Xtreme Xmen Was really good.
    And yes its absolutely jarring to read anything classic to whats current. its like they're not even trying . it like they hired a bunch of screen writers to just keep pushing out issues.
    I don't know how any current X writer can claim to be a fan But write the way they do. I guess in reality they are just fans of their favorite and write the fanboynism around them.

    Hire me MARVEL Ill Ghost write for you . you dont even have to pay me. My payment is the Xworld is in order again

    She does have control over electromagnetic energy but from what I've seen, it's not the same level of Magneto

    I mean is it that hard to find a writer/editors who actually reads the crap they submit for final printing? Storm has a whole atmosphere to work with. Hell if we’re going to stick with lightning/EM for everything then have her reverse the polarity on him roast him enough to be incapacitated. Or hurl a massive hailsone into his head at 200 mph. Or pop his eardrumbs via pressure manipulation. Or manipulate his internal pressure to to effect his bloodflow to the brain for a KO. Marvel standards are just so terribly low.
    do you see how many ideas you came up with so easily and without the incentive of being on marvel payroll? they simply dont care. storm hasnt been essential to the xmen since clarenont wrote her in xtreme. uim.hopeful things will change once marvel.finally does their thing with mutants but I'm not encouraged.

    please expound what differences have u observed.

Like tey have to have action scenes because they have to, buut they don’t care about them because their story is “so good” readers won’t care :-/.....I want the whole enchilada.

    Have NC tele-drop Blob from 10 miles up or tele-steal parts of OR’s armor or tentacles. Hit Magneto with a heatstroke.

    I dunno. I just don’t see this team of seasoned X-men fighting like what they do actually matters since they do the same things over and over.
    agreed to all of this.

    Make a electro-magnetic force field, short-circuit someone nervous system, attract or repel objects with em fields and other tricks.

    Give me something other then lightning bolt. Lightning bolt...and lightning bolt.
    hello??? I would actually be more forgiving if they actually took this approach

    lolol. I think ororo in character knows this unfortunately she cant write herself :/

    I think his control over the em field would be greater than hers. though I don't believe he has ever manipulated the em unaided on a global scale as she has.

    Just the fact that everyone contributed in their own way and felt like they had a purpose, they had their own missions and personalities. Maybe Bishop is good in Astonishing, but damn I remember he fact that he had a little story in the first issue of Uncanny but I don't remember him doing a damn thing, when compariitvly I was very impressed by one fight he had in Xtreme.

    I was glad Storm was a leader like she should be but I feel like you could replace her with anyone else and it would give the same feeling. Power wise...in xtreme she would make a micro tornado, freezing rain, lightning and an emp in one issue, when she was lucky to attack with something other than lighting within multiple issues for the past 2 years.

    Wait a minute let me clarify. Magneto's Control over the EM Energy is in a sense greater than Storm's to a degree. That much we all know is true. However, with Storm feats over EM Energy I think Storm's control could rival his if not is closer to his.

    I think if Storm tried to reverse his EM shield or have it implode on him would work. Storm has already made him strain himself(with Wind) make him strain himself with his own power. OF COURSE Yes, Magneto would put up a huge fight, but i'm confident he would struggle.

    I just read it. It was a lack luster for me.

    Storm did nothing but Harm Magneto with Lighting to the point you can see his Skeleton. (As much as I want to believe that is possible....nothing, but CIS and PIS in this Book)

    Not surprised. If Storm did half the shit that was described in this post:

    Shit would've probably ended. So PIS it is. ETA: But thinking about it. She's probably holding back since he's under telepathic control.

    thank you for this detailed explanation. I think the xoffices editors have done not only a disservice to her but at the franchise as a whole. when you go back and read xtreme (which I havent done yet) as well as Claremont uncanny you are quickly reminded of just how deficient these newer stories are.

    no I agree here. I would like to see her attempt to gain control of the em field hr used agaisnt her.

    Storm sounded so out of character in today’s issue hell everyone sounded corny and I’m not surprised Storm used just her lightning and the shit didn’t even look cool it looked like some glowing earthworms wiggling all over the damn place
