The X-Men aren’t strangers to being wanted fugitives, but last week Storm was her own with the FBI and a U.S. senator out to get her.
Since the debut of Greg Park’s Storm series in 2014, Ororo has acted as a humanitarian and helping hand to those in deepest need, even – and oftentimes – in areas of political and physical strife. In the wake of her whirlwind romance with Wolverine (and his death), Ororo Munroe has learned about diplomacy but also when other actions must be taken – and those actions have brought down the wrath of U.S. Senator with the pull to get the FBI to take her into custody. The events of Storm #7 revealed that it’s not so easy to hold a woman like Ororo, but that issue kicked off a new status quo for the long-time X-Men, one-time Avenger, and sometimes Wakandan queen on the run.
