One of the X-Men’s heaviest hitters and one of Marvel’s most iconic characters, Storm, has been fighting for peace and freedom for nearly 40 years. This summer, the Mistress of Weather is set to fly solo, for the first time, in Storm #1, and you better believe she’s bringing the thunder! Brought to you by New York Times Bestselling writer Greg Pak and fan-favorite artist Victor Ibanez!
One of the last true disciples of Charles Xavier, the spirited X-Man has always followed her heart and fought for what she believed in. She has been many things in her life, from goddess to queen to teacher and back again, but no matter where her life may take her next, Storm has always dedicated her life to fostering goodwill and protecting her fellow mutants.
"If you tell Storm she can’t go somewhere, that’s exactly where she’s going to go,” says writer Greg Pak, in an interview with Marvel.com. “She’s got an incredibly strong sense of justice and empathy earned through years of hard experience. And her empathy isn’t limited to whatever group she’s standing with at the moment. Storm will do the right thing—as she sees it—without apology. That’s incredibly strong—and potentially very costly for her.”

Is anybody else feeling the All-New Ghost Rider series by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore? I know it’s only been one issue so far, but still, this story concept and art is nothing short of awesome. Tradd Moore is going to go a long way with his art in the Marvel U. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, Marvel just released the first issue to their relaunch of Ghost Rider, welcoming the Spirit of Vengeance to the MARVEL NOW! family.
This time, the Spirit of Vengeance has his hooks in Robbie Reyes, a high school senior just trying to survive on the mean streets of East Los Angeles. With his hellfire-powered car, Reyes will avenge the deaths of innocents like the Ghost Riders that came before him. Solicitation below:
The story starts in Engine of Vengeance Pt. 1, "A street race leads a young man on the FAST and FURIOUS of destiny. Amid an East Los Angeles neighborhood running wild with gang violence and drug trafficking, a war brews in the criminal underworld! With four on the floor, Marvel’s newest GHOST RIDER puts vengeance in overdrive!!!”

With the exception of Ultimatum and the death of Peter Parker, I’ve never been all that interested in the Ultimate Universe, but if you’ve been following more closely than I have, then you know there’s been a lot changes in the status quo on that side of the Marvel U. The most interesting to me to come about is the All-New Ultimates team line-up. Following a series of unimaginable destructive events the world must rebuild itself, but in times like this, heroes are needed more than ever! Behold the next generation of Ultimates – as Spider-Man, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell and Cloak & Dagger unite to stand up against a vicious, rampant crime wave plaguing the streets of New York City! Brought to you by the critically acclaimed creator Michel Fiffe and rising star Amilcar Pinna!
I think this series is just what we need. From the looks of it, this youthful team of heroes are going to be battling crime and stopping super villains dead in their tracks, all the while dealing with homework and teen drama. What more can you ask for in a comic book, right?
“It’s a war zone in the streets of New York, Hell’s Kitchen in particular.” says Michel Fiffe, in an interview with Marvel.com. “Certain neighborhoods have been torn apart by the recent galactic cataclysm and crime is exponentially growing; local super-powered gangs rule the environment. That’s where Miles and the gang come in, to act with a grittier, more immediate problem while trying to find their own footing as super heroes.”
The future of the Ultimate Universe begins here! Don’t miss out as All-New Ultimates hit the shelves this April 2014!@6 months ago with 7 notes
