What is this, the first X-Man (or X-Woman, in this case) I've added so far? Okay, third (Kitty Pryde and then Iceman in the Spider-Friends sketch). There's a good reason for that. I'm trying to avoid the typical choices as long as possible and find ways to mix them in without just going with a standard shot. THIS one, though... this one is here for a reason.

Namely, Storm rules.

Oh, sure-- she hasn't ruled in recent comics in ages... but years ago, she was totally awesome. The first X-Men cover I ever saw in a COMIC SHOP was Storm getting posessed by a Brood-- I'm tellin' ya, that cover scared me to death. I was terrified of what was happening on that cover. My dad bought the issue, but I didn't read it until several years later. Great book.

MOHAWK Storm was REALLY cool. Her outlook on life changed due to the experiences she had in her earliest days as an X-Man, and the mohawk and punk visual is a remnant of that. I still like her original uniform the best, but "Mohawk Storm" is a close second, and when I decided to put her on the sketch list... this was the look I wanted to render the most.

I really dig the look, too-- she had an 'edge' that she clearly didn't have in the 'naive African princess' look she debuted in. I like it.

Oh yeah-- I totally ripped off the background. It's from X-Men Evolution. Coming clean with that right now, so it's not that big an issue. I added some of my own vibe to it, but I still want to always respect the source. Fun cartoon, too.

I love your choice of heroes (and versions of those heroes) in this series. This picture is a great example of that. Cool pic of the coolest (in my opinion) version of Ororo.

Haha I know, it is a very very late reaction to these sketches. And normally I try to avoid late reactions, but really after seeing Dragon, Invincible, Shadowcat, Powergirl and then this brilliant Ororo I couldn't keep quiet anymore ;-)

Oh yeah, I remember the JoeMad Storm! It certainly wasn't the WORST uniform she ever donned-- I kinda miss his artwork on the mutants.

Thanks for the kind words!

I miss Madueira on anything. Too bad his video game career busted. Wonder when his Ultimates gig will begin?

For worst Storm outfit I'd pick the "boooring zigzag lightningbolt leotard" one or the "suddenly PINK unitard WTF" one.

I'd guess that we'll see the first issue released before the end of the year on his Ultimates run. For me, the worst Storm costume would have to be the white version of the lightning bolt uniform. It just looks ridiculous in white-- shoulda stayed black.

I love storm and i likew her apart from the xmen. I really think that giving her a chance to be a strong female outside of the xmen takes her out of being a role player in a team and into a more defined state of individualism.
either way this one racks man keep em' coming

Yeah, I think there's a real chance for growth in her current situation in the comics. Here's hoping they take advantage of that with her in the FF!

Having just read Life-Death I about a week ago, this is a pleasant surprise...I love storm with the mohawk, and ONLY with the mohawk...she is the most boring character in comics today...more boring than Jubilee...
By the way, this is a great one, it's probably my favorite in your series so far!

Nope-- this is the hairdo she had when she grew disconcerted with her outlook on life shortly after joining the X-Men. More jaded than naive.

I'd forgotten about that, yeah. Clearly a nod of the hat to her days with this look in-continuity.

hahaha I know tons of people sporting the 'hawk-- it's always a pleasure, to be honest. I was a kid in the 80's, and kids my age clearly were not allowed such a haircut. Nowadays, though-- they're making a comeback and are EVERYWHERE. I love that.

Thanks! It's appreciated.

Thanks, thanks-- as I said above, I totally ripped off that shot of the mansion, though. A quick Google search will turn it up in no time. I just printed it out, lightboxed it, added a bit of my own touch, and BAM! There it is.
