• Guest-starring GAMBIT! • When everybody's favorite Cajun gets in over his head, it's up to Storm to bail him out! • But while Storm is remembering how to pick locks, a figure from her past prepares to strike... Rated T+
Storm #4 is another small story which gives Storm that development she needs as a leader and as Ororo. Big plots aside, they mean nothing of you can't enjoy the little things like this that should make you like the characters for who they are and not by who they punch in the face next.

Storm and Gambit's relationship was very entertaining to read in this issue. There was a reference to Storm's past as well as an appearance from Marisol which I loved. I was not a fan of the artwork in this issue, although it is not the worst I have seen from this series. But my biggest issue with this series (which was emphasized in this issue), is how, despite this being her title, Storm sometimes appears secondary. There's a too large emphasis on Gambit which distracts from the focus of Storm. The end result of the comic is rather dull; this issue appears to just be a temporary fill-in. However there are some beautiful moments between the two too. An enjoyable read.
What I expected: A team up between two complex adult buddies delving into a mysterious temple adventure where they bond over their shady pasts
What I got: A saturday-morning-cartoon cave action scene, linear predictable story with a not so clever ending, and bland if not immature out of character 'sentimental' dialogue. Messy vaguely humanoid art. The whole thing was very uncomfortable and childish.
note: i liked almost every previous issue
