Wakanda has been conquered, its Vibranium reserves plundered. Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours. And Dr. Doom stands triumphant. It will take the combined forces of the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers to stand against him.

COLLECTING:

Doomwar #1-6

Critically, Doomwar, is the most important Doctor Doom story Post-Civil War. After an orchestrated Coup d’Etat, Black Panther goes into hiding. Dangerously, Doctor Doom threatens Wakanda and its most precious treasure.

Together, writer Jonathan Maberry and artist Scot Eaton collaborate on the story. Though among the darkest Marvel stories, the writing highlights the complexity of monarchical rule. Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of Black Panther comics: muscular, complex and brutal.

Moreover, Black Panther vs Doctor Doom.

Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of Doctor Doom, at comic clubs and Comic-Cons. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Doctor Doom! And Black Panther!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, this comic is one of the most important Doctor Doom stories. Many events after Black Panther: The Bride, Doctor Doom decides to invade Wakanda. Dangerously, Doom presents as a formidable threat, personal, political and planetary, to Black Panther and Wakanda.

Importantly, after a political coup, Black Panther must choose between Wakanda and his love for Ororo. Witness Doctor Doom’s pure faith in Doomworld, or, pure evil! However, the story may prove too dark for some audiences.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love the action, the characters’ muscular physiques and the dramatic ending. This is the comic to own in order to build your Doctor Doom collection.

This product has 39 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.3 out of 5.

POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Wakanda has been conquered, its Vibranium reserves plundered. Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours. And Dr. Doom stands triumphant. It will take the combined forces of the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers to stand against him. A war has begun that will pit the world’s most relentless super villain against a collection of the world’s most powerful super heroes–one that will span the globe, offering twists and turns and surprise players (hello Deadpool!) that neither side will see coming.”

NEGATIVE REVIEW

In addition, there are 4 negative global ratings. One negative review pointed the poor character writing: “Doomwar is basically a continuation of writer Jonathan Maberry’s Black Panther series. While I thought the series was decent this book isn’t even close. The political machinations that were present during Christopher Priest’s run on Black Panther are poorly imitated here and the book is loaded with great characters acting nothing at all like themselves. The inclusion of some characters is insanely ridiculous. The art by Scot Eaton is very good but nothing could save this flop of a story.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Hardcover and Paperback formats available.
  • Great writing.
  • Saves Black Panther’s marriage.

NEGATIVE:

  • Not enough customer review ratings.
  • Story dark for some audiences.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this comic as the most important Doctor Doom story Post-Civil War.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Super Power: Contrary To Professor X, Storm’s Weather Powers Indicate Her African Ancestry Passed Down Godhood Through Magic

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.

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”.
