    Yupp...It's clearly more for promoting the writers than the characters.

    So it might not be that Marvel thinks she will sell better than Storm and more that they think said writer's name will create interest/attention in the title and if said writer wants a particular c-lister over an a-lister they might have decided to just roll with it.
    WHO is Sophie Campbell??? I had to look her up.

    The ONLY thing of hers I own is from Milestone Forever under her previous name of Ross Campbell.

    Storm is still a bigger name. She is also a bigger name than Marrow. Would make sense to confirm there is a story with her.

    The story isnt about her so she doesnt need to be in that writeup about it. Heck, she may not even be in it; thats only speculation based on her history with Marrow. If she is, then that explains why she is on the cover bc like you said, she is the bigger name. The cover will do more to sell the book, then the writeup, which most people that get or see this will have never read

    You want it to sell-she better do more than be background or supporting cast.

    If we are talking a $3.99 book MAYBE but this will be priced higher.

    Folks are not paying for covers cameos. Looking at that book-it's a PASS. At least list the stories so folks will know who EVERYBODY is doing the book. Funny DC can do that. Why is that an issue here?

    yes they are. Its why Marvel does it. Covers do help sell books. This is nothing new and literally a tactic they've done for decades. With any luck she will at the very least cameo bc they've put her on covers where she wasnt even mentioned

    Random question: How many languages can Storm speak? I would say:

    -English
    -Arabic
    -Swahili
    -Hausa (I'm pretty sure she spoke it in a Black Panther issue by Priest)

    Am I missing others?
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    it appears she is just on the cover and won't be in any of the stories

    actually reading the article Coipel is contributing to this so maybe that image i previously posted will be featured here.

    Plus Japanese, Wakandan, Russian, probably several additional African languages. Japanese and Russian were probably telepathic uploads, but still very impressive.
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!
