    Storm #5 is an end to just a taste of what Storm will learn from Wolverine's past. The question from here is if she will allow anything she learns about him influence her feelings? Will she go looking to find more? And just where in general she can go from here. Read Full Review

    Of all Marvel titles, Pak has created the one that is most globally conscious of real-life injustice issues. Read Full Review

    Altogether, "Storm" #5 is a fine issue that makes me excited to see more of Ororo. While I understand the need to provide some closure around Logan's death, I am ready for her to get going on her own terms. "Storm" continues to show why its title character is a compelling hero; now it just needs to embrace that. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 18, 2014

    Storm works through another short piece here that has her coping with Logan's death and some of what he had done in life. Their relationship is not one that I'm familiar with in this regard, though their long friendship is one that has always made sense as they balance each other out in different ways. Seeing her go through all of this here, and to be distracted by Yukio and what she's up to, allows it to all be worked through in short form and likely not to be explored much more beyond that. Which is unfortunate, because real loss – even in comic book terms – can be mined to good effect. Storm continues to be a complicated character, which is a good thing, but there still doesn't feel like a good sense of consistency here. Part of that is the lack of a stronger overall narrative to bind it all together, since what we're getting are smaller standalone stories. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Nov 21, 2014

    While the series has been doing a routinely adequate job with the titular character, there have not really been many Wow! moments so far in this series, and while it seems to be trying to tell a more organic day-by-day rendition of Storm, this issue highlights perhaps a need for a balance between the two approaches, with maybe a broader story arc to shake things up a bit and to put some tension in this series.

    This issue was a great read. Although thin on a storyline, it was interesting to see Storm's connection with her former lover Wolverine. She constantly questioned herself what Wolverine would do if he was in her situation. Did she really know him? The action scenes were brilliant - we saw Storm kick some major butt in this issue. The art was beautiful as usual, Ibanez does a great job. Another good read.

    I don't see the direction of this book. Not sure why I keep on reading it. It might be because I still have hope that Pak will provide us with something amazing, however it seems that Storm isn't his character.

    This comic really does not have a voice on the shelf at the moment and it is really too late to try and develop one. This really was a case of a story better told in the team book or as a mini-series than trying to make Storm happen as a solo. The artist has now left the book (this is his final issue) and we are reaching a issue 6 with no clear direction. Story was very generic and by the numbers, the art was good as it typically is under Ibanez's hand and with a different inking and coloring style it actually made the work look cleaner. I am not one for scoring a book higher than it deserves because of the lead character but I did give the book an extra point for the homage cover.
