    While I know this was meant as a strike against Storm, she actually came out of this exchange looking better than Xavier he seemed like an irrational over-protective father unable to see that his "children" no longer needed his heavy-handed way of guidance. She showed an maturity here calling him on his crap and then walking away realizing he was stuck in the role he'd become so attached to.

    Agreed. Shooter failed big-time, and it ironically resulted in one of my favorite-ever moments of Storm's.

    Where have I seen this phenomenon before...?

    If it sold well, Shooter didn't fail. That was only ever his real goal.

If you still land on the idea that Storm can come out of nowhere and assume leadership, then... I guess the bar for your leaders is set at a certain height?
    I think she can because she has a history of doing that whether that's with Xtreme, the XSE, I am just going off of established continuity.

    As for the feats/leadership question: I don't know that winning fights equates to being a great leader.
    Missing the point much? Storm came up with plans, led her team to wins and then helped save the world, the universe... That's the point and of course winning fights points to good leadership. When two football teams are facing each other you don't assume the coach or qb are bad leaders when one side wins. Why would you say something different in comicbooks?

    Keep telling the truth.

    Actually pretty great, she stopped interdimensional slave wring freeing people from around the world and other dimensions, stopped weapons from flooding the streets of the world from interstellar and planetary despots. Those are big wins when you think about it. It's like the United States removing loose nuclear material from poorer countries. The world was better off with more people free from slavery and less super technology guns in the hands of criminals.

    Big ideas and leadership aren't congruent.
    But they are not dissimilar either. One feeds the other and the other creates goals and saves, or enhances lives.

    Much of the general population thinks the Phoenix 5 did a lot of great work and regard Cyclops and the X-Men as celebrities. The rise in mutant hate is derived from the rise of mutants, and not necessarily the climax of AvX. Most recently, it's been pointed out in All New X-Men #4 and Cable and X-Force #2.
    They don't feel that way with Scott being locked up. they blame him and mutants for nearly destroying the world.

    While I didn't agree with the isolationism and militarism of the X-Men at the time, his leadership got them through the darkest time in X-Men history and paved the road for the return of mutants.
    No it didn't. The X-men have been through more than what Scott went through in the last six years. Seriously the Dark Phoenix Saga was worse than what Scott had to deal with, Inferno was worse...

    Zero Tolerance was worse (in every conceivable way)

    Even if he hadn't, Storm's choices are and should be written as her own. The notion that this is some kind of thing between Mr. Badger and Puss in Boots is a little sexist.

    Which once again raises the question; why didn't Marvel have Storm set to be leader of the Uncanny Avengers? She clearly has better success in the field of humans and mutants working together than Havok.
    Holding out for a Peter/Miles team up.

    the x-office just went out of their way to get storm back on lockdown. if you think they are letting anyone outside of x-men touch storm anytime soon, you're crazy.
