    And yes...overall, his writing is boring AF.
    I mean he already has written her though. And like Butter said has done a bang up job of it for the past few years and is single-handedly responsible for probably one of her biggest character developments in decades not to mention fixing the mess that was Storm's lack of agency in her relationship with T'challa and giving her a more profound connection to Africa and Wakanda imo. Say what you want about Coates but he did right by her in his BP run which is more than I can say for any X-writer in the past 2 decades.

    That's what they said before Covid, but based on 25s solicitation, looks like the extended it.

    Unfortunately an editor said the same them towards the end of his first year on BP, that he had "lots" of ideas. We see how that turned out. Lol

    The real competition will be when U S. Agent comes out. We'll see if a priest shows out.

    That's when she was a support character. Like Bobba Fett, it's easier to make them cool when you dont have to give them the heros' journey. I'd expect to see her have failure after failure if shes the main focus.

    its not about her being cool though. He actually not only captured her voice but was very knowledgeable of her canon both from aspects of black panther and her xmen lore.

    So of you took away all the feats and just left the dialogue, you'd be equally excited about him writing a solo book? Cause that's a potential outcome too. Lol

    what coates did was all within her powerset. she was "cool" well before coates ever pinned her so no that is not what its about. it is him writing her within her established abilities and further developing that

    Weird. You'd think that everything would have been wrapped up by now. Unless they made changes to what they already had.

    But I 'm just speculating on what the big Storm arc will be about. Gotta be more than just a break-up or Storm is sick or something.
    Oh, ok. I see what you mean well, then Im curious to see that myself.

    Wait what do you mean hes still working on the book? What Book?

    You MAKE a very good point.

    If that happens then it only proves what so many of us has said about Coates being a Boring Writer. And it would have been all for nothing............-_-

    It would be hilarious if Coates got to do a Storm book then proceeded to turn it into a stealth Oya solo lol. All while she fails as Krakoa's top diplomat and has to be saved by Frenzy. I don't think he's capable of writing a strong solo lead, so much so that even if he got to write a black woman he'd turn it into an ensemble of black women.

    Wouldn't be surprised if that happened.

    If he did write the Storm solo I wonder will he continue with the Storm plots from the BP book or start something new.

    All of that depends on who gave Marvel a better pitch on a Storm Book. IF it is even a Storm Book....

    Coates isn’t the only writer who has expressed interest in wanting to do a Storm Book. Eve Ewing flat out said that her and Coates will have to fight for it. So really that only tells me it’s could be EITHER or at this point.

    Based on Coates history of writing solos, I'd be worried if he were writing the Storm solo.

    He writes a good Storm in someone else's book. But if you look at both his BP and Cap, the supporting characters will become the stars of the book and the title character becomes a prop.

    We saw it in BP and we're seeing it with the Daughters of Liberty in Cap's book.

    Not to mention...his books aren't setting the sales charts aflame. Quite the opposite in fact...they are in decline issue to issue.
    Only the handfull of die-hard Storm fans would be buying his book. And there aren't enough of those to sustain a long-term ongoing.
    X-Editors need to think long and deep about saddling Storm with that dead weight.
