"That's how it happened on Earth 141 where BOTA was written by Headmasters Claremont, Milligan and Carey." - Jarrod
Besides Cyclops as big brother has always clashed with Storm, no man leads her.
Sabra wound so easy? she was supposed super strong or something, good issue.
It's why she cut a bitch (Callisto) after giving everyone else such sanctimonious claptrap about "x-men do not kill".
My favorite ever Storm scene from Claremont's Uncanny heyday includes her whooshing up an unwilling Kitty Pryde into a wind vortex just to give HER shit for not appreciating her radical image change and to chastise HER for letting their "mother-daughter" relationship fall by the wayside. So self-serving, it was a beautiful scene.
Not to beat a dead horse, but this is easily the best Storm i've read since Claremont's X-Treme.

This is no different than when she secretly took her team of X-treme X-Men to find Destiny's Diaries, and made it a point to not tell Xavier (or Cyclops), or "faked" her teams deaths to protect their friends and loved ones, or secretly maintained the shared position of White King with Magneto in the Hellfire Club. Or the Storm who does what she thinks is right or necessary, and that included stabbing Callisto through the heart, or ripping out Marrow's heart, or who could have taken Super-Sabre's head off with fishing line and a stick. TBH, the way she has been portrayed from the time Fraction took over (even in some of Hudlin's writing) is not the same Storm she was up to the point they started writing her.

Just to be clear on Storm's character: She is BOTH!
If you see how Storm is when she's in Africe, or when with Force, or at the beginning of her membership and also lately shown, she's then the kind woman, soft at heart, easy going, sensitive, kind, graceful, and full of wisdom and give good advise to others.
Then you have the tough Storm who is the other side of the coin (so to speak). That's the Storm we saw in this issue. That's the same Storm who didn't want Rogue to join, who almost killed Callisto, the same who almost killed marrow and so on.
You also hae a third part of her character, though rarely shown: The Godess part of her character, where she's a bit arrogant and behaving like a saviour, which has only been shown in Black Panther and a Storm mini decades ago.
So, you are all right on this. Many X-characters have several sides (just take a look at Emma, Rogue or Colossus for example) to them. Each is used in different situations. Just like real life people they can be king and generous one day and moody and aggressive the other day. Depends on the situation they are in.
