    Storm #6 tests the boundaries of what power Storm carries with her and all it took were some troopers who had every intention to make sure Storm and that plane full of civilians didn't reach it's destination. Again, you may want the big picture story, but why when you can get something truly genuine with a definite beginning and end? Read Full Review

    Summary: Ororo Monroe is an icon for many readers, both as a hero and a symbol of diversity. Writer Greg Pak certainly knows this and writes the character to her strengths and plays off her faults. This is the most relatable and enjoyable Storm has been in a long time. Read Full Review

    Fresh off the aftermath of Logan's death, "Storm" confidently strides out with its own voice intact thanks to Greg Pak, Al Barrionuevo, and Tom Palmer. With a clear new direction, "Storm" #6 is a strong issue that utilizes a subtly layered conflict to great effect. Read Full Review

    As with any comic series, the stories here would benefit from a lack of influence of outside factors, but more so, it would seem that for all of the solo X-Men titles that they are lacking in the absence of other X-Men. Storm is easily a compelling enough hero to hold her own book, but as a character she is not being able to let loose and carve out her own niche. Until that time, this series is going to be searching for an identity, but at least in this issue there seems to be some promise that the series is heading that way. Read Full Review

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this issue. Once again we were addressed the issues that mutants face on a daily basis - Storm may be universally known as a leading member of the X-Men yet she is still marginalised by society for being a mutant. I loved the experimentation of Storm's powers on a molecular level - she mentioned changing air pressure, generating superwinds, and we saw her carry a plane through the air using wind whilst defeating a bunch of bad guys who were trying to kill her and everyone else on board. The storyline was refreshing to see in the series, and the art work was great (although not on Ibanez's level). A great action-packed read.

    After getting a little better, it's down again. I wish this series was good.

    Well, they say all things created have a purpose. Art: Better than I could draw but not great compared to previous issues (he does try his best to channel Ibanez though and Storm looks pretty consistent). Story: If you liked the previous issues not much will be a surprise. If you have not, not much will be a surprise, but the dialogue is a little worse. And what was with the "and know you know" PSA moment on the plane with the nurse. Storm:"Wow...that's a lot of heroes". The fact that this title may stay though issue 12 is a miracle in and of itself. I do realize this review is slightly harsh but on the same note, many reviews have been over-inflated. Even now there is a review giving it a 10, stating the story is weak and the art is no where near as good as previous issues, but it is "the first lady of the X-men" and she deserves to stay in the sky...10 #savestorm. Due to either the love of the character or the #savestorm campaign there does need to be a balanced approach, inflating scores does not help the cause nor give the creators incentive to increase the quality of the book.
