    Yea whether it's a real death or not I'm pretty sure whatever happens in XoS is setup for a major status quo shift for Storm's character. High Priestess of Arrako? Goddess of Krakoa? A new political role? Lots of possibilities if Hickman and friends get creative.

    Well, big plans and all you know. Potential is there for her.

    the goddess of krakoa ain't happening for sure. the prophecy and the marauders issue both said she WAS NOT a goddess. would have been nice to see even a subtle attempt to go down that route but considering that never did if I had to put money on it I would go with den-mother of the rejects!

    BK, you know anything is possible .

    I've decided to take the position of a semi-enthused reader with the hope that they deliver on promises made. Fingers-crossed for Storm.

Hudling completely changed her history outside of an x book by having her have sex at 12 with Tchallal.

But i'm going to go back to ignoring that stuff. lol

    And real talk i don't want storm in BP 2 not only because she deserves her own franchise but because i didn't even like the movie to be honest. I like what it did for our community but thats about it. Far from the best marvel piece imo. It was the definition of crumb grabbing because of what it did but not because of what it was.
    Agreed. I'm hoping this is a turning point for Storm, not only in comics but for the character's multi-faceted/multi-community representation manifests in other forms once/if the ground work is properly laid for it.

    Yes! Today's issue was sooo good! This event is getting up there in my top faves like House of M, DoX/HoX/PoX annd XXM Invasion. It is refreshing to have a X-story that has been so engaging. It has been way too long.

    This look amazing. I also didn't think she would be in this event, but now I'll be ready to add this to my pull list.

    The death cards means change basically. A transformation. A end. A turning point. A renewal. Leaving behind old ideas and accepting new ideas. Shifting interests. Turning way from the past and moving toward the future. Cutting certain bonds. Letting go of bad attachments.

    Neither said that she was not a goddess. The prophecy simply said she was "once a goddess" and Storm said she was called a goddess in Marauders. Neither statement denies her being a goddess and neither really speaks to her current status either. As a matter of fact, given the fact that this seems to be a character defining journey for Storm, everything seems to just be recalling her past status particularly those in which she was responsible for the lives of others. Which in my opinion, could be setting the scene for what may come next. (This does not deny at all your statement about the goddess thing potentially not happening lol)

    I do see your point in that "once a goddess" could be interpreted as she is no longer a goddess (and who knows given her treatment throughout X history this could be true) but it could also mean that she no longer plays the role of a goddess in which, like in her former days, her only role and task was to provide for her people (those who believed in her locally) as a goddess. She may still have the power and divinity of a goddess, but she isn't necessarily in that sole position anymore. Also, with that being paired with once a queen, perhaps this is speaking to the fact that Storm may have to walk into a new type of position that causes her to fully commit to some other form of leadership similarly to her days of being a goddess and her days of being a queen. Even the Marauders episode kept hinting that Storm's role as a protector super seeds her other leadership roles.

    As far as speculations continue, one of my questions/theories is if, in fact, they may be setting up a deeper connection between Storm and Death (the horseman) that will impact her role on Krakoa, Wakanda, and the wider Marvel Universe. I wonder because this is the third direct reference between Storm and Death. The first was the whole Giant X-Men Storm saga, in which Storm talks about the importance of life even when facing death. (There is also the whole tech thing which I think sets up another possible dichotomy for the Storm mythos related to another idea presented lol clearly I've been thinking too much about this lol). The second is the Maurauders cover, where Storm is dancing with Death. I do take note that it's a romantic dance... Of course, it's a cover and could be misleading and mean nothing but here we are (lol). Finally, there is this card, which is the card of Death. Death is missing and Storm is sitting on the horse that death usually sits. Surely, this means more for her than Death but being that Death is a character in the story, I do wonder.

    Another thing that makes me curious are the parallels I see between the Storm/Death pairing and the Apocalypse/Genesis relationship. (Both Storm and Genesis seem to be "life" related while Apocalypse and Death are more associated with well "death".) That combined with the seemingly redemptive nature of this saga and it's focus on reconnecting (Apocalypse/Genesis, Krakao/Arrako) it just makes me wonder. I will admit that I am very excited about the possibilities for Storm and I haven't been that way for a long time in regards to the XBooks. I've had many theories, most of which were wrong and will probably continue to be lol, but unlike that past, each story she's in keeps providing exciting hints as to what may be in store. If they end up dropping all of that just to retread old ground then that would be a shame and even expected. But honestly, right now, they seem to be laying the foundation for exciting things with the character which hasn't happened in the XBooks for a long time.

    Other things I'm curious about...In the Marauder book the flashback sequence starts with Storm and her roles and then seemlessly segues into the history of Skybreaker. Given the language of the retelling I wonder how deliberate and important that may be. Storm calling Skybreaker her sword is also curious (not sure if she is claiming ownership of Skybreaker or if she's saying it's the sword she needs but part of me feels like this statement is potentially very important). Also, the way she talks about protecting her people is curious considering that she states multiple times that she is doing this in the best interest of Krakoa and Wakanda (both of which are "her people"). Perhaps she is not denying her role to either and how that role is bigger than any of her current definitions. I don't know. Not many of the XMen stories has had my head running about with possibilities like this one has in a long time and for that, it's currently a win for this storyline.

    Metamorphose means complete change, detachment and elevating. It is either her Godhood or her Elemental Form, I believe they are leaning more towards her Goodhood but others see other things.

    On the other hand, a leak from Spanish Amazon... check this out:

    I don't remember hearing about X of Swords: Storm before. Has this book been announced?
    Taken from the X Of Swords: Stasis Thread... I wonder, what is this book about... and if it is a secret book that will lead to Storm build.
