...Yeah, I'm glad this is in it's own world now. Even from what I've read of Claremont that's nothing like her character.

From what we've seen so far, that's likely not the "real" Storm.

Huh? But didn't they say that the teenage Storm is the real one now?

I didn't think that had been resolved yet (granted, I'm reading this in trade, so I'm behind on the reveals). This isn't the teenage Storm, though.

Okay, can someone explain the teenage Storm thing then? Because I never heard of that until this series came out.

Back during Claremont's original run, there was a period where Storm was de-aged into a child who'd lost her memories, then regained her memories and was later re-aged back. This story takes that idea and runs with it by saying that the real Storm was never re-aged, it was an evil double. So now we have 'Ro, the memory-less child version who's still at Xavier's, and Storm, who just took over Wakanda.

Does this mean Wakanda just got its arse kicked without realising it?

Yea, this is adultevilStorm that killed Wolvie and left, while kidgoodStorm is still with the X-men.

Oh, Claremont.

I picked up the first trade second-hand, and I just can't help but be entertained by the complete lack of restraint in this book. It's every Claremont-ism from the 80's done up huge in primary colors, but he's obviously having fun, and I suppose I am too.

Me too :) This is *silly*, but it's a good kind of silly.

Can the real 616 Storm do this? It's be better than her marriage to T'Challa

This feels like a 'Take That' to Hudlin's Black Panther run. From what I've seen of Claremont so far, it doesn't seem that far off.

Clearly it should be Erik Killmonger von Stabbingchester the 3rd.

If it was some place other than the Mary SueTopia that's going through this I'd find it in me to give a shit about Evil!Storm running Wakanda. Wakanda deserves it as much as Genosha deserved Magneto running it.

Yes but this is some alternate Earth Wakanda that was never touched by Hudlin in the first place.

So X-Men Forever has an Evil Magik and an Evil Storm? This is the Claremontiest book Claremont's ever written.

'cept for the lack of bondage gear on evil Storm, and the lack of 'subtext'.

Presumably there was some time passage in there, but they did go from 'king in full control' to 'queen in full control', and she is a powerful Queen beloved by the old king and who avenged his death after all.

Oh yes. Whoever this really is, she played the hero of Wakanda to the hilt. And she arranged for not just the King and his rival to die, but the entire government staff. There's gonna be a lot of people who don't know their jobs for awhile, and Evil!Storm seems clever enough to keep her activities disguised, so it'll be some time before any Wakandan natives catch on to them.

Hm, I guess she just likes her style better? She does have a red Wakandan cape and Ws on her shoulders
