PROFESSOR X THOUGHT STORM WAS A MUTANT

Before joining the X-Men, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a rain/fertility goddess by local tribesmen in Kenya. When the original X-Men team was missing, Professor X assembled new members to rescue them. During the first meeting, Professor X revealed to Ororo that she was not a goddess, instead, she was a mutant. Really, he made her the offer to discover the real world and fight for the cause of mutants. Curiously, Ororo accepted.

STORM’S WEATHER POWERS ARE THE RESULT OF MUTATION

Correctly, Storm’s weather powers are the result of mutation. In fact, Storm is one of the powerful mutants on Earth. Furthermore, the X-Man has been classified as an Omega Level mutant. With training and experience under Professor X’s direction, Storm has grown in skill, power and leadership.

An instance that supports Professor X’s thesis is Feat: Black Panther, ‘Doomwar’ #1. Here, T’Challa proactively invented a cell that nullifies the X-gene. Effectively, Storm has no powers under such conditions. However, there is evidence that Storm’s powers are based on magic and witchcraft.

STORM’S ATMOKINESIS

Atmokinesis: Storm is one of the most powerful mutants on Earth and has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to manipulate the weather.[167] Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of Weather Manipulation. She has been able to control both Earthly and extraterrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. [Storm] can modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level),[167] generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. [Storm] can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes,[168] as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

STORM IS A GODDESS OF THE STORM INHERITED THROUGH A LINE OF AFRICAN WITCHES

In ‘Marvel Tarot’ (2007) #1, we find out about Storm’s line of ancestry. In reality, Ororo Munroe descends from a line of witches. All of them, have distinctive white hair, blue eyes and the potential to wield magic. We can formulate two theories to explain Storm’s super powers.

First, Storm’s super powers showcase magical potential and properly unite science and magic. Here, the evidence that supports our hypothesis is the fact that Storm derives power from faith. In Wakanda, she is properly worshipped as a Goddess of the Storm. Furthermore, Black Panther, her former husband and King, considered her a goddess.

Second, Storm’s super powers are both divine and genetic. As Goddess of the Storm, she can hear and grant prayers. At the same time, her godhood is both the result of religion and magical inheritance. Indeed, Storm has both white hair and blue eyes. Therefore, these phenotypes presuppose a genetic basis. In addition, there is evidence that her powers are based on the X-gene. In conclusion, this may provide a rare case in the Marvel Universe where magical potential has a genetic basis. Moreover, it is possible that the X-gene is itself recessive.

BLACK PANTHER (T’CHALLA)
EARTH-616

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #1, titled “Doomwar (Part 1)”, T’Challa is stated to perform an intelligence feat. Before the “Doomwar”, Doctor Doom has masterminded the Desturi’s coup d’etat. As a result, T’Challa, Shuri and the Dora Milaje have fled Wakanda. Sinisterly, Queen Ororo has been tried for witchcraft and for being a foreigner. Later, Ororo is held in a cell that nullifies her X-gene. As T-Kan mentions, the cell was invented by T’Challa.

How much intelligence does it take for T’Challa to invent a cell that nullifies the X-gene?

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #1, Ororo is imprisoned in a cell built by T'Challa that nullifies the X-gene.

IN THE ISSUE, ORORO WAS IMPRISONED IN A CELL THAT NULLIFIES THE X-GENE. IN FACT, T-KAN STATES IT WAS BUILT BY HER HUSBAND T’CHALLA.

IMPORTANTLY, THE COST OF REPLICATION OF THE HUMAN GENOME IS 427693027.778 JOULES PER SECOND. OR, 172373.459527 BYTES PER SECOND OF BRAIN PROCESSING SPEED.

Ororo has been imprisoned in a cell that nullifies her X-gene. The cell was invented by T’Challa.

Since homo superior has mutations in the human genome it may or may not have the same total number of base pairs. We will calculate the energy required for DNA synthesis in humans to estimate the mutations in the human genome caused by the X-gene.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

From a study, the average energy requirement per diploid eukaryote is:

CDNA,d≃526Lg.

Then, the average number of bases in a gene is 8310 base pairs.

Gene length = 5478 bp introns + (12 exons * 236 bp) = 8310 bp.

Also, there are 25000 genes in the human genome. In addition, one gram/mole of ATP produces 470000 kJ. Then, there are a total of 100 g of ATP in the human body and the Formula Weight of ATP is 507.18 g/mol. Finally, Ororo weighs 65.77 kg.

Refer to “DC Day Explained: Brainiac’s AI Is The Digital Processing Of All The Information In The Galaxy”. Importantly, it contains information about the human brain’s storage capacity. Also, refer to the Intelligence Scale.

First, let’s calculate the moles in 100 g of ATP.

Moles in 100 g of ATP = (100 g)/(507/18 g/mol) = 0.19716865807 mol.

Second, let’s calculate the energy of ATP hydrolysis in DNA synthesis.

DNA synthesis cost of the human genome = (526 * 8310 bp * 25000 genes * 100 * 470000 J * 1 g/mol * 0.19716865807 mol * 1 hr)/(65.77 kg * 1000 * 10 hr * 3600 s) = 427693027.778 J/s.

Without the information on chromosome loci mutations, this is a baseline estimation.

DNA Synthesis B/s = (427693027.778 J/s * 0.125 bytes * 1 hr)/(1 J/K * 310.15 K) = 172373.459527 B/s.

Processing Speed In T’Challa’s Brain = 172373.459527 B/s.

Ratio To Genius = (172373.459527 B/s * 100)/(11195.2997653 B/s) = 15.3969490001.

INTELLIGENCE

T’Challa generated at least 427693027.778 J/s. Since this is a baseline level for a human, it would require more than a Mathematical Computation Level of Intelligence to nullify the X-gene. T’Challa had to generate more than 15.3969490001 times the processing speed of a Leader.

Ratio of DNA Synthesis/Daily Energy Expenditure = (1.5396949*1013 J)(24 hr * 8600 s)/(1 day * 1 hr * 7,500,000 J/day) = 423724036480.

SHE-HULK (JENNIFER WALTERS)
EARTH-616

In ‘Avengers’ (2004) #500, titled “Avengers Disassembled, Chaos (Part I of IV)”, She-Hulk performs a super strength feat. Scarlet Witch wants revenge on the Avengers and triggers Vision‘s sleeper program which unleashes five Ultron drones. During the battle, a Scarlet Witch mind-controlled She-Hulk tears Vision in half.

How much super strength does it take for She-Hulk to rip Vision in half?

We will use Vision’s durability to estimate She-Hulk’s super strength.

VISION’S DURABILITY


In ‘Avengers’ (1969) #62, Black Panther flies Hawkeye, Vision and Black Knight to Wakanda. There, they are met by Wakanda soldiers who open fire on them on M’baku’s orders. During the fight, Vision withstands Wakandan Vibranium bullets.

We will use these feats to calculate Vision’s durability.

NUMBER CRUNCHING



First, let’s estimate the durability of Captain America’s Vibranium shield. Captain America’s Vibranium shield can withstand the intensity of a nova flame. In Feat: Superman, ‘DCeased’ #6, I calculated the energy released by a supernova to be 1.8*10^47 J. Cap’s shield is actually 32.5% dense in Vibranium. Let’s calculate the durability of Vibranium in terms of energy.

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*1046 J.

Vision’s synthezoid body is made up of Horton cells. Let’s calculate the density of Vision’s body.

Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m3.

Let’s multiply the density times the number of Horton cells.

Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m3) = 3.2816063*1048 J.

Since the Vibranium bullets did not budge Vision, the super strength needed to affect his durability is at least 3.2816063*1047 N or 49838390581938219895287958115183246073298429 PSI.



DURABILITY



She-Hulk generated more than half of 3.2816063*1047 N of force in order to affect Vision’s durability. Vision had to generate a Galaxy Level of Super Strength since she likely ripped Vision with a force 9.3227452*1024 times greater than the gravitational force of the sun on Earth.

Calculations for She-Hulk, ‘Avengers’ #500

Gravitational Force Of Sun On Earth = 3.54*10^22 N

Durability of Vibranium = (0.325)(1.8*10^47 J) = 5.85*10^46 J.
Density Of Vision’s Body = (136.08 kg)/(1.91 m*1 m*0.5 m) = 142.492146597 kg/m^3.
Vision’s Durability = (5.85*1046 J)(3*1015 Horton cells*10-12 kg/m^3)/(1 Horton cell*142.492146597 kg/m^3) = 3.2816063*10^48 J.
Comparison = (3.2816063*10^47 N)/(3.54*10^22 N) = 144477.635593.

ORIGIN STORY


Ororo Munroe is the child of American photojournalist David Munroe and the Kenyan princess N’Dare. She comes from a line of African priestesses that have white hair, blue eyes and the power to use magic.1

Ororo was orphaned at the age of five, as her parents died in a plane crash in Cairo, Egypt. Though she survived from the accident, she developed a deep claustrophobia from being buried in the rubble. She was raised by a gang of thieves led by Achmed El Gibar. Ororo became a thief and once attempted to steal from Professor Xavier. At age 12, she decided to journey South. She accepted a ride from a stranger and was nearly raped by him. She managed to kill the man though she swore never to another human life.2

After nearly dying in the Saharan Desert, she saved T’Challa using her weather powers. The two shared romance though it was ended.3,4 Ororo finally reached her ancestors’ homeland on the Kilimanjaro Valley in Kenya. She was taken in by a tribal woman Ainet who taught her the use of her powers. Soon, Ororo became worshipped by the tribes as a goddess.5

ORORO JOINS THE X-MEN

Years later, Ororo helped the X-Men, battle a mutant known as Deluge that used Ororo’s control of weather to destroy humanity. Afterwards, she returned to her tribe.6

Months later, however, Professor Xavier was left with no choice but to recruit Storm, as he called her, and other mutants from around the world into the X-Men in order to rescue his original students from the threat of the sentient island being, known as Krakoa. Prof. Xavier explained to Ororo that she was not a “goddess”, but a mutant and had a responsibility to use her abilities to help the world, just as she had helped the local tribes. Curious, Ororo accepted Professor Xavier’s offer and was given the code name “Storm”.

IN ADVANCED WARFARE

BLACK PANTHER, SHURI AND THE DORA MILAJE ARE FUGITIVES FROM THE DESTURI COUP IN WAKANDA

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #1, T’Challa and Shuri, the Black Panther, has lost his royal title and is a fugitive from Wakanda. The Desturi have seized Wakanda’s government and have sentenced the Queen, Storm of the X-Men, to death. T’Challa has fled Wakanda to seek help from the mutant nation of Utopia.

In Utopia, T’Challa arrives with Shuri and the Dora Milaje to explain the circumstances of recent events. In the past year, T’Challa had been tracking rumors of a dissident group called the Desturi. They are a fundamentalist and xenophobic group that had infiltrated all levels of government.

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #1, T'Challa briefs the X-Men on the Desturi coup d'etat in Wakanda and Doctor Doom its mastermind.

T’Challa found they had access to surveillance but had no leads. Until he was lured into a trap by the mastermind of the coup d’etat, Doctor Doom, who nearly killed him. Later, T’Challa found Doom had infiltrated the palace food and water supplies with nanites swarms. Fearing that everyone he cared for could have been turned into living spy cameras, T’Challa fled Wakanda with Shuri and the Dora Milaje.

White Queen questions about Doctor Doom’s purpose of the revolution. T’Challa responds that its purpose is to obtain the Vibranium supply of Wakanda to upgrade his armor and become the most powerful force on Earth. Cyclops as Head of Utopia, cannot sanction an open war with Wakanda. However, some X-Men willingly volunteer.

DURING T’CHALLA’S AND THE X-MEN’S ATTACK ON WAKANDA, DOCTOR DOOM STEALS ALL OF WAKANDA’S VIBRANIUM

 

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #2, T’Challa and his army attack Wakanda. Wakanda is the most advanced nation on Earth. T’Challa’s army arrive on Wakandan soil and are greeted by the army and the head of the Desturi. Asking the Desturi government to surrender, T’Challa and his army declare themselves to be Wakanda. Suddenly, Nightcrawler teleports T’Challa and Black Panther into the Palace. Despite Nightcrawler’s opposition, Black Panther massacres the people in the Palace.

At the Wakandan border, the X-Men and the Dora Milaje take on the Wakandan army. Back at the Palace, Doctor Doom has given Storm a 10 minute ultimatum to lock-pick the Vibranium Vault otherwise, he will shoot the members of the Royal Family. Nightcrawler attempts to teleport T’Challa to the Vibranium Vault with no success since Doctor Doom has placed a mystical barrier. T’Challa needs the Dora Milaje to hold the Wakandan army for one hour so he can massacre the hundreds of guards at the Royal Palace in order to reach the Vibranium Vault.

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #2, Queen Ororo attempts to lock-pick the Vibranium Vault as Doctor Doom holds T'Challa's mother at gunpoint.

T’Challa arrives at the Vibranium Vault and finds Queen Ororo bound in fetters by Doctor Doom. Doctor Doom gives T’Challa five seconds to give him the key to the final lock or else he will kill Storm. He has to choose between saving the Vibranium and saving Storm. T’Challa does not hesitate and decides to protect the Vibranium.

The countdown ends and Doctor Doom relishing the game, does not kill Ororo. Doom teleports in a flash of lightning. Entering the Vault, T’Challa finds out that all of the Vibranium is gone. Checkmate!

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #4, T'Challa enters the Vibranium vault and finds out all the Vibranium is gone.

DOCTOR DOOM IS A MEGALOMANIAC WHOSE UNIQUE VISION OF THE FUTURE FOR WORLD PEACE IS DOOMWORLD

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #3, Doctor Doom wages his “Doomwar” using Vibranium. In order to unlock the final lock, Doctor Doom had to face Bast, God of Egypt and Panther God of Wakanda. Bast scrutinizes Doctor Doom’s spi; and asks him his motivations for taking Vibranium. The test is purity and if Doctor Doom lies, Bast will devour him.

Doctor Doom tells Bast that though his methods are cruel and villainous, he has purity of intention. Doctor Doom claims mankind is a predator species and that according to his purity, he is a saint. He has gazed into thousand futures, a hundred thousand futures and found that the only future where humanity survives extinction and is at peace is under Doctor Doom‘s rule on Doomworld. Bast, though he finds Doctor Doom’s methods abhorrent, passes Doctor Doom and let’s him have the Vibranium.

THE DOOMWAR BEGINS WITH CASUALTIES ON ALL SIDES

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #4, the “Doomwar” over Vibranium begins on a global scale. T’Challa has recruited the Fantastic Four to assist him. Using Vibranium trackers, T’Challa has tracked locations of Vibranium supply at Doombases over the world. Shuri, the Dora Milaje, Invisible Woman, Thing, Human Torch and the X-Men are on the frontlines. When they arrive at the first Doombase, they are unable to destroy the Vibranium-enhanced Doombots. Then, arming themselves with Vibranium-enhanced armors and weapons, T’Challa’s army begins to take down Doombots.

However, there are enormous casualties on both sides. In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #5, T’Challa and his army suffer great casualties with one third of the Dora Milaje having fallen. However, they have managed to take down only eight percent of the Doombases. T’Challa recognizes that Doom has learnt everything about Vibranium technology and his people is facing extinction. In order to eliminate the threat, he turns to shadow physics. T’Challa invented the discipline to unite quantum science with alchemy. T’Challa’s plan is to send Deadpool and the Midnight Angels to Latveria in order to assassinate Doctor Doom.

Later, Shuri’s team has located one of Doom’s computers. Hacking into the system, they divert all his funding to humanitarian causes.

The Broker who has been running the Doomwar, realizes this and fears Doom will kill him.

IN SYMKARIA, T’CHALLA FINALLY OUTSMARTS DOOM WITH SHADOW PHYSICS BY USING A TRIGGER THAT RENDERS ALL PROCESSED VIBRANIUM INERT

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #6, T’Challa finally outsmarts Doctor Doom by rendering all processed Vibranium inert. In a communication with Black Panther, T’Challa informs her that he has sanction a shadow attack of Latveria by the Midnight Angels which cannot be traced. She does not approve T’Challa bypassing her authority and reminds him that Wakanda does not start wars. Doctor Doom’s armor upgrade is finally online and he is able to sense and to tap all the Vibranium which is present everywhere on Earth.

T’Challa is in communication with other scientific and mystical leaders on Earth: Beast, Hank Pym, Tony Stark, Charles Xavier, Doctor Strange and Doctor Voodoo. They inform T’Challa that all Vibranium objects on Earth have come to life. Since the act leads back to Wakanda, and the threat of a nuclear war looms, they refuse to help T’Challa. Deadpool and the Midnight Angels attack in Latveria but they are no match for Doom. In diplomatic mission to Symkaria, Shuri invites Doctor Doom to come face T’Challa’s army to settle the matter.

The final battle begins. T’Challa’s army is overwhelmed by Doom’s army. During the battle, T’Challa is seemingly defeated by Victor. However, T’Challa finally outsmarts Doctor Doom. He activates a trigger that uses shadow physics to render all the processed Vibranium on Earth inert.

Shuri who had wanted to kill Doom, relents. She promises that she will hunt over the Earth and kill him if he steps foot on Wakandan soil. In the end, Black Panther and Storm watch as the superhero community helps them re-build Wakanda.

Marvel Day: In “Enter The Phoenix”, The Thunder God Attempts To End Gladiatorial Combat But Becomes The Son Of A Monster With A Devastating Origin Story

MARVEL DAY

ORIGIN STORIES

THE PHOENIX SHOWS SUPERHEROES’ AND SUPERVILLAINS’ FIGHTS ARE GLADIATORIAL COMBAT

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #40, Phoenix seeking a host causes gladiatorial combat among superheroes on Earth. The Avengers have located Phoenix rising out of the arctic ice on a volcanic island. Apparently, Phoenix was called to Earth by Namor who seeks to marry her. In fact, the Phoenix has summoned heroes and villains in order to fight each other to claim her as host. “Enter the Phoenix” shows superheroes’ fights are reminiscient of ancient gladiatorial combat.

We begin the first gladiator combat between Captain America and Doctor Doom. The battle is vicious and Doom ultimately gains the upper hand. Doom manages to kill Captain America twice with cosmic blasts, however, aided by the Phoenix, Captain America rises from the ashes to continue fighting. Noticing this as the Phoenix’s testament to Captain America’s valor, Doctor Doom forfeits the battle. Captain America is then transported by Phoenix to the White Hot Room where the other combatants wait their turn.

In 'Avengers' (2020) #40, Phoenix seeks a new host and select heroes and villains to fight in gladiatorial combat.

BLACK PANTHER HAS TO DECIDE TO END THE PHOENIX’S CONTEST

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #41, the Phoenix continues its gladiatorial combats by selecting combatants from the White Hot Room. We have the following matches: Black Panther vs Man-Thing. Luke Cage vs American Eagle. Shanna The She-Devil vs Moon Girl. Valkyrie (Jane Foster) vs Orb. Hyperion vs Shang-Chi. Red Widow vs Howard The Duck. Black Panther vs Nighthawk. Maya Lopez vs Namor.

In the White Hot Room, the Phoenix speaks to Black Panther in aparte. She tells him to end the contest. Phoenix tells him she knew the old Panther king who fought with glowing rocks but who could end gods. Black Panther promises to end the contest no matter the cost. Phoenix says she wants T’Challa and that she will burn Wakanda’s name across the stars if he agress. Otherwise, she will burn it to ashes. Black Panther refuses and asks Phoenix to become benevolent. Otherwise, he will show Phoenix how he deals with a blizzard.

IN A NEW ORIGIN STORY WITH PHOENIX, THOR BECOMES THE SON OF A MONSTER

In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #42, the Avengers attempt to end Phoenix’s gladiatorial combat. Outside the White Hot Room, on the volcanic island, the Avengers are attempting to contain the Phoenix. The Avengers battle the Phoenix in order to keep her contained in the volcanic island. As the Phoenix is freed, Thor reflects on the link he has shared with the Phoenix time and again. He feels some form of love. She tells him, he is her son. This is the new origin story of Thor and effectively makes him the son of a monster. In ‘Avengers’ (2021) #43, Thor battles his way against Phoenix through his new origin story. The Phoenix finally escapes the volcanic island.

Thor does not believe the lie and tells her Gaia is her mother. He throws his hammer at the Phoenix Force which phases through her. Then, Phoenix Force explains that the lie was necessary for Thor to protect the Earth. She tells the Thunder God is a child of Fire and Thunder. The Avengers are worried about Thor but Iron Man tells Okoye to delay the Wakandan Helicarriers. The Phoenix Force tells Thor, Gaia kept her trapped inside Earth for thousands of years. However, when the final host came, she was free. And now, she remembers Thor. Thor battles Phoenix Force but she soon gains the upper hand. Elsewhere, Captain America is about to face Black Panther in gladiatorial combat.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Every King needs a Queen – and that’s exactly what the Black Panther is searching for! Hop on board here, True Believer, as the King of Wakanda embarks on an epic quest to find a wife – the outcome of which will send reverberations throughout the whole Marvel Universe. You don’t want to miss out on history in the making!

This comic is the most important comic in the ‘Civil War’ storyline. It has amazing and gorgeous art though it moves very fast. There was no prior build-up to this union. However, their common causes such as protecting royalty, continuing the royal lineage, affirming their African identities, the Civil War, and the cause of mutants united these two characters. What I like about this union is that it is a power marriage between a character who is shrouded in mystery – Black Panther – and a character who is part of an underrepresented class – Storm.

The ramifications are sure to shake the Marvel universe.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


This is the most important event in the ‘Civil War.’ A union that forever shook the Avengers and the X-Men and made the ongoing ‘Civil War’ all the more disastrous.

This product has 18 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.6 out of 5. There seems to be a general satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “I like the fact that for once the Black man was the hero. I’ve never thought if the Black Panther and Storm as a couple but it is the match-up of the century. Two black heroes united in matrimony is one for the books.”

The reviews were overall very positive with only two negative reviews. One problem cited by one of the negative reviews was: “This story is told from a man’s point of view, as are 99% of all comics, and while Hudlin seems to respects Storm as a woman, there is way too much cleavage and backside views of all the women. And Storm’s wedding dress is far too provocative and low-cut to be considered “Royal” or dignified. It approached slutty in a way that’s more in style with Emma Frost.”

Overall, this comic was very enjoyable.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Availability in multiple formats: Kindle, Comixology and Paperback (though the Paperback is more expensive).
  • Affordable price.
  • Kindle Discount.
  • Good Customer Review Ratings.

NEGATIVE:

  • Due to the large file size, there may be slow downloads.
  • The book is only available in English.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


We recommend this book as ‘Civil War’s most important event.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
