When last we left our former divine heroine, she ran into Callisto and assumed she kidnapped some adults for no reason at all.

When last we left our sellout heroine, a bratty teenager called her a sellout, and that caused her to kick around some corporate goons in a foreign country.

For some reason )

Q. Why do you like Storm?

I love her moral center and certainty — she knows injustice when she sees it and can turn on that righteous rage when dealing with it, and that provides a ton of visceral fun to indulge in as a reader and a writer. At the same time, we're doing our best to toss her complicated problems wherein the moral center can be very hard to find. It's always great to put your hero into the kinds of trouble that can exploit his or her greatest strengths, so it's been a blast writing her as she fights to find her way under those circumstances.

...

Q. There aren't a lot of black female superheroes, in fact given that Vixen is long missing from DC Storm is it. Do you feel a sense of responsibility to get her right? How does that impact your writing?

You bet. I feel a huge amount of responsibility with this book. But I don't know that I'd phrase it as a feeling that I have to "get her right." All of these classic characters can be written many different ways — that flexibility is one of the reasons the iconic superhero characters have survived and thrived for decades. I don't believe there's any one objectively "right" way to handle any character — they're strong and amazing enough to be explored from multiple angles and in multiple ways.

That being said, at this moment in time, I do think there's a great opportunity to explore Storm not just as a mutant, but specifically a woman and a woman of color. So I'm thinking a lot about what everyday life has been for her throughout her life and how it affects her world-view, and I'm working hard to explore that in very big and very subtle ways.

--Greg Pak

I was sadly underwhelmed by this issue. A comic that examines how being "a woman and a woman of color" affects her world-view and makes her different from other superheroes is something I would be all about, but I don't think it turns out well.

But hey, make up your own minds )

It seems that at C2E2 today, Marvel announced they'd be having a new Storm solo series starting in July, written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Victor Ibáñez.

Ahem, sorry, flashbacks to the music of my youth...
