STORM is on a mission to use her extraordinary powers for the betterment of not just mutantkind, but the entire world. When wayward youth start disappearing from the streets of New York, Storm is reminded of her own past as a thief and decides to investigate. But little does she suspect that the culprit behind the disappearances is one of her oldest foes: CALLISTO!


My Review: 

In the second issue of Storm, we follow Storm as she feels compelled to help a missing girl lost in New York City. 

Greg park has a great ability at making these issues incredibly atmospheric along with the fantastic art by Victor Ibáñez. Punk!Storm is my favorite Storm and her civilian clothes along with her superhero costume are drawn incredibly well, giving all the characters depth and making them feel like real people. 

Another interesting feature in this issue is the topic of not everyone needing to be saved. Seeing a superhero being wrong about trying to save someone and doing more harm than good is always an interesting theme, especially with modern superhero comics and having Storm go up against Callisto and being wrong, is great to read and to see how Storm reacts not only as a hero but as a character.

This is a great new X-men series and I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a comic series to read.

Storm #2 can be found here and at your local comic book store.
