There are fans who have been waiting almost 40 years for this book. Greg Pak does not disappoint as he and artist Victor Ibanez put together the first issue of Storm.
 
Hearing Pak's plans for bringing back Callisto in issue #2 and the subsequent reappearance of Forge, I feel Ororo's solo adventures are in good hands indeed.
 
Storm is a complex character. Goddess, thief, queen, ruler of the underground Morlocks: she's had more roles than almost anyone to the Marvel Universe. And always underlying those roles was an elemental woman of great will, great passion, great beauty and great power.
 
As leader of the X-Men and headmistress of the Jean Grey School, we know Storm seems to know more than anyone that, yes, with great power comes great responsibility.
 
Ibanez is every bit equal to Pak in #1's success, as this first issue rolls off with such strength of character for Storm that you wonder why it took Marvel four decades to bring this great character a book of her own.
 
This is a Storm I discovered and grew up with in Chris Claremont's X-Men books. This is a Storm I have waited to see return for many years.
 
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this new book ... but I've tried.
 
Pick it up!
