    Rereading that New Avengers 24 tie-in, I'm left wanting. Left wanting for Miss Oro-ho!
    Yes. It was alright seeing some insight into the racist mindscape that is the Avengers, and yes, I have to appreciate Storm dropping the G-bomb (Goddess) in the middle of a conference but I wish THAT scene would have gone just a little further.

    In a perfect world (that will never happen) Cap would have dropped the P word (Phoenix) and Storm woulda reached into her bathing suit of a uniform, dug out her Avenger ID card and chucked that garbage onto the conference table, spun a 180 -- whipping her impossibly long, vidal sassoon, platinum locks into her Halloween Costumed Whosbund's face, and then throw up one dismissing hand as she sashays away and says "Out."

    THEN, Cap woulda chided his SLAVE, aka Wakandan "friend", for trying to stop her with his snide "She knows where she needs to be" BS comment and then Luke Cage woulda picked up on those clearly racist undertones, handed his baby off to his black-disco-stick-loving-horse-mouthed-wife and backhanded that Star Spangled DEEVA into the wall, scooped his baby up in one arm, thrown his "My-parents-are-so-mad-I-married-a-black-dude-I'm-so-rebellious" wife over his shoulder and WALKED OUT too.

    Yes. PLEASE.

    IMO, his primary power seems sound based, Storm using her wind manipulation should be able to block his voice.

I think Colossus and Magik have gotten the most development but I cannot say that I think the team has shown very many feats in battle to live up to the name "Extinction". Emma got a good one against Sinister. Colossus during the last arc but it was off panel. Danger during Sinister arc. Magneto holding together a Celestial was also good. Besides that nothing stands out.
    Agreed, although I do believe Storm has been treated alot better than she use to be in Uncanny, she seems a bit too monotony, speechy, and self righteous. She comes off a bit of a hypocrite at times(Like in the scan I just provided), which is not a good thing. She also doesn't seem very useful powerwise. Too much lightning and not enough creativity and power. The others have definitely shown to be more effective in combat. Hopefully this will change soon enough... they have been up against some pretty powerful foes lately afterall...

    Peter is more powerful than Magneto. That's already been proven cannon when they faced Kuurth. Magneto threw a air force carrier at him and it did nothing. Peter ran him out of the state. Magik is already more powerful than magneto which is why Scott keeps her locked up. She nearly destroyed this dimension with her lies. I love Mags and he is powerful but honestly the extinction team is no joke.

    Yeah, I'm pretty fed up with lightning, too.

    Point.
    I suppose this is for the benefit of the "new readers" who have never read an X-book prior to 2008.

    @ this point, who isn't? There are so many forms of lightning. Make some ball lightning, a sprite, an elf, something, change stuff up.

    What I like from Unit is the X on his chest. : )

    True. I know Storm would say that but she wouldn't hit Unit without trying to talk to him first.

    True that. But lightning has always failed Storm. Storm has been beaten always when she uses lightning. She should use wind bursts more often.

    The mystery from Uncanny X-Men #265 of who promised Storm to Farouk long ago, just recalled it very possibly was Storm’s uncle, Shetani (who was established in the UXM Annual in 2006).

    It was revealed that the males within her family bloodline did not receive any of the power passed down so he sought a different sort of power to destroy theirs and had been hunting for Ororo for years.

    It is very possible that he made a deal with Farouk in exchange for power of some sort in the past… which would give N’Dare, her mother, more reason to abandon her heritage and family.

    I see. Perhaps, Shetani wants to be king.

    I like the lightning as a visual cue, maybe in the background or something, but as a weapon, when was the last time it really worked for Ororo?
