    It isn't a matter of anchoring a franchise even if you think Carol isn't a model of success. She has gotten enough chances with enough creative teams you can make an accurate assessment of her sales potential. Storm and other books just get one solo. Characters like Storm, Cyclops, Rogue, etc have big enough fanbase to do the R&D to find what works. Moon Knight, Punisher and others have gotten that chance. We have gotten Angel/ Frankenstein/ War Machine / Hydra Punisher, etc. They have try every angle to make him work. Storm is one of those characters where you should take the time to figure out clearly her potential.

She has also appeared in other books without the other members of the FF in tow, like Captain America and Invaders. Like you said, all of this is how should start changing perceptions of "team characters".
    That's what Storm needs.

    It likely won't happen in the next book Marvel gives her or the one after that, but if Marvel consistently pushes her then there is a chance to change that fan perception. That is one of the biggest barriers for "team characters" imo. Sales will always be low if fans off the bat think a character can't work alone. I genuinely think Storm can work, but it's about how much effort Marvel is willing to put in to make it happen because it will take a lot.

    In other words; fake it til' you make it.
    Iím also loving Sueís new solo book also! She is drawn beautifullyyy and the art and story in general are absolutely enthralling so far. When is the next issue due might I ask?

    There are some characters that are worth trying different things to see what clicks with an audience. Storm is one of those characters.
    There are characters that instantly find their audience and need a couple tries to figure out what works. Storm definitely deserves such an opportunity.

    But this thread is asking if she can anchor a franchise, not carry a solo. The former is alot more challenging to do and as I mentioned Wolverine and Deadpool are the only two X-characters that have been able to do so.

    Can Storm carry a solo? Of course.

    Can Storm have her own franchise? That's something we can talk about after she's had years as a solo character.

    I guess I skimmed the OP question and thought it was the usual "Can she carry a solo" thread. Whether she can start and maintain her own franchise is another kettle of fish entirely. It's pretty rare for any character to be able to do that and it takes years of consistent storytelling as well as world-building. It's way to early to even think of that.

    Yes I think she can. I think Marvel needs to make a conscious effort to build her up for it so it can be sustained.

    I'm really tired of the same old question being asked every two years getting the same old response from the same old posters about how XYZ is this and that and how Storm is nothing without the X-men. I dont EVER see this being asked about any other X-man except Storm and its beginning to look a little suspect.

    Any character could with the right creative team and premise.

    Storm hasnít been interesting since Claremontís initial run, though Wood wrote her well; doesnít matter, itís comics.

    Change whatever the fuck you like.

    You'd have to rework her origin a little; like most of the X-Men, it isn't structured for an independent story. But that's doable.
