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

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?As for the feats/leadership question: I don't know that winning fights equates to being a great leader.
But they are not dissimilar either. One feeds the other and the other creates goals and saves, or enhances lives.Big ideas and leadership aren't congruent.
They don't feel that way with Scott being locked up. they blame him and mutants for nearly destroying the world.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.
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...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.
I smell a fight for leadership coming on.
That cover... Man, is Logan going to be the rebound guy or used to make T'Challa jealous?
