x men: worlds apart

“I am a woman, a mutant, a thief, an X-Men, a lover, a wife, a queen. I am all these things. I am Storm, and for me, there are no such things as limits.”

                                     -Ororo Munroe of Earth 616, X-Men Worlds Apart #4

Requested by superheroesincolor.

FYI: Storm has a lot of history and I wanted to keep the list more new-reader-friendly, so I tried to restrict the entries to comics dating back to only the 2000s. If any readers would like to go farther back (i.e. punk Storm), feel free to message me. 

Reminder: ALL of my reading guides are pre-Marvel NOW! and pre-New 52 unless stated otherwise.

  • X-Treme X-Men Vol. 1
  • House of M
  • Ororo: Before the Storm
  • Black Panther Vol. 4
  • Fantastic Four: Reconstruction Chapters
  • Astonishing X-Men #25-35

Where to start reading Black Panther?

Now this is a starter guide for T'challa not Shuri (i’ll try to post one for her later on).

Best thing you can do is start with Priest’s run but if you’re not too familiar with Black Panther then i would recommend you to start with Black Panther vol 3 #1-6 Who Is The Black Panther? and then continue on with

  • Fantastic Four #52-53 (first appearance)
  • Black Panther Vol 2 #1-5 The Client
  • Black Panther Vol 2 #6-12 Enemy of The State
  • Black Panther Vol 3 #39-41 Secret Invasion “See Wakanda and Die”
  • Black Panther Vol 5 #1-6 The Deadliest of the Species
  • Captain America & Black Panther: Flags of our Fathers.
  • Black Panther: The Man Without Fear
  • Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive
  • New Avengers vol 3
  • Avengers vol.5 #28-44
  • Secret Wars
  • Captain America and the Mighty Avengers

And if you have time check out Storm/X-Men: X-Men: Worlds Apart mini #1-4 and Doomwar.

If you need any further help or links to any of these comics let me know :)

“Deadpool is a hard R, it’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.”
-Simon Kinberg, producer

“I felt Fight Club and Tyler Durden were good corollaries, we are in strip clubs and dive bars and crappy apartments and far away from the shiny X-Men world.”  
-Tim Miller, director
