This May, Storm will headline an electrifying new solo series written by groundbreaking creator Ann Nocenti and illustrated by acclaimed artist Sid Kotian. To celebrate this new chapter of one of Marvel's most beloved superheroes, best-selling cover artist Stanley "Artgerm" Lau will grace the debut issue with a stunning variant cover!
Spotlighting Storm in all her majestic power, Artgerm's piece depicts the character as she’s currently portrayed in titles like Immortal X-Men and X-Men Red where she leads mutantkind on two fronts.
While mutants like Namor and Ms. Marvel have started finding their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's still no sign of the X-Men themselves. While Deadpool 3 looks set to change that, the mutants there are expected to hail from Fox's X-Men Universe, hence why Hugh Jackman is reprising his role as the pre-Logan Wolverine.
The MCU will eventually get its own version of the team, though we don't anticipate that being until after Avengers: Secret Wars is released. Storm remains the hero many fans would like to see among the first mutants to make their presence felt and, when she does, we can only hope Ororo looks as fierce as on this cover.
In the same spirit as titles such as Symbiote Spider-Man and Venom: Lethal Protector, where the industry’s greatest creators take a retro spin on Marvel heroes in key moments throughout Marvel Comics history, Storm will delve into Ororo Munroe's fan-favourite "punk" era.
The upcoming series will see Storm's omega-level mutant gifts evolve in a radical way, causing her to lose control at a pivotal time in her journey as leader of the X-Men.
In the tumultuous journey that follows, fans will see Storm confront a new nemesis, perform breathtaking never-before-seen feats, and even fall in love.
Storm #1 is set to arrive in comic book stores on May 24.
