Yes you did read that correctly. Thanks to Marvel’s July Solicits we now know that everyone’s favorite weather witch/master thief/leader/Queen and all around badass will be the star of her own series set to debut in May. The creative team is composed of Victor Ibanez on art and Greg Pak as the writer.
Will this be a miniseries or an ongoing? We don’t know yet. The only thing we know for sure is the title of the book and the creative team attached. Greg Pak is most well know for his critically acclaimed run of Incredible Hercules. He has also written War Machine, Herc, Incredible Hulks, the divine Phoenix Endsong and valiant’s Eternal Warrior. Victor Ibanez meanwhile has been the main artist on New 52’s Wonder Woman.
This series has allot to live up to for me to recommend it at all:
1) Good stories
2) Good art
3) It must acknowledge her time as Queen of Wakanda, Leader of the Morlocks, Thief, Goddess in Africa and leader of the X-men
4) It must deal with her lineage and acknowledge she is no longer an orphan, her kenyan and american families must be used or mentioned in some form. This is a missed and wasted opportunity since they were introduced in the early 2000’s. Read all about her family here; Ashake (ancestor, deceased), Mr. Munroe (paternal grandfather), Harriet Munroe (paternal grandmother), unidentified Kenyan maternal grandmother, David Munroe (father, deceased),N’dare Munroe (mother, deceased), Vivian Munroe (Aunt, deceased),Colonel Shetani (maternal uncle), David Evan Munroe Jr. (nephew)
5) It must treat her and have her treated with the respect she deserves.
UPDATE: April 27, 2014
Now thanks to Comicbookmovie we have official art and story details from USA today:
“We’re going to see Storm cutting loose with all the brass and fierceness that comes from having the power to control every aspect of the Earth’s weather and atmosphere. And we’re going to delve deep into the experiences and perspective that lead her to make decisions no other X-Man would — to tear through walls that no one else may have even realized are there.” He adds, “She’s a mutant icon — but also a hero to oppressed people everywhere,” says Pak, promising to explore her morality from all angles, “especially in the ways it might clash with the objectives of her fellow X-Men.”
