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!

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.

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.

IN MARVEL UNIVERSE

MYSTIQUE TRAINS WITH X-MEN DUPLICATES IN ORDER TO KILL THE X-MEN

In ‘Uncanny X-Men’ (1984) #177, Mystique sends the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in order to kill the X-Men. At the beginning of the issue, Mystique is fighting X-Men duplicates. The training simulation starts with Mystique fighting a Wolverine duplicate. Mystique defeats him by slashing his jugular. Next, Kitty Pryde phases onto the battle scene and sees Wolverine bleeding. It is Mystique. She has metamorphed into Wolverine and kills Kitty. With an attack that destroys the scene, the Colossus duplicate exclaims “Murderer!” Mystique defeats him with a flare skull.1

Suddenly, an optic blast hits Mystique behind her back. Mystique takes Cyclops and Colossus into the circus with mirrors. She feigns to shoot Colossus with a gun only for Cyclops to respond with an optic blast that reverberates through glass, killing Colossus. Cyclops cries “No!!”1 Sneaking up behind him, Mystique murders him by choking him with a rope. Then, she faces Storm. Responding to Storm’s attack, Mystique blows up a fuel truck behind Storm, incinerating her. Stepping into the circus like a trapeze, she meets Rogue who means to avenge her friends. As she incinerates Rogue with her gun, she howls “like a mad dog.”1 The last enemy is Nightcrawler. After he teleports her, she hesitates to kill him with her dagger. He does not. He knocks her out.

COLOSSUS IS FROZEN INTO A STATUE BY PYRO AND AVALANCHE

Kurt, Amanda Sefton, Kitty, and Peter go to see the Royal Ballet at Lincoln Center. Peter and Kitty drop Kurt and Amanda. Then, they go park the car. On their walk in the parking, there is an explosion. Peter asks Kitty to summon the fire brigade while he attempts to save people. Changing into Colossus, Peter springs into action. Colossus notes the building is derelict and that there must be squatters.

Running up the stairs, he reaches the top floor and sees Blob. The fire was a trap set by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Blob slaps outside the building. Then, Pyro creates of bird of living fire. Colossus is heated red-hot then “white-hot, to incandescence and beyond!”1 As Colossus wonders if he can melt, he falls to the ground “like a meteor”.1 He attempts to gather his wits but then he is cooled to absolute zero cold by Avalanche.

MYSTIQUE ATTACKS THE X-MANSION TO RECRUIT ROGUE BACK INTO THE BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS

In ‘Uncanny X-Men’ (1984) #178, the X-Men are under attack by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants led by Mystique. As the X-Men battle the Brotherhood, Mystique infiltrates the X-Mansion. The X-Men manage to defeat the Brotherhood though Blob reveals the mission objective: kill Professor X and recruit Mystique’s adoptive daughter Rogue, back into the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

At the X-Mansion, Mystique metamorphs into Rogue and offers Professor X some herb tea. Professor X is struggling to maintain contact with the X-Men. He notes something is scrambling his psi-scan. As he identifies the psionic scrambler used by Mystique to inhibit his psi-probes, Rogue fires a shot at Professor X. As Professor X lies on the floor, Mystique states that Professor X was able to identify her psionic scrambler and alter her shot at the last moment so that it may only wound him and not kill him.

Rogue enters the room and an argument between mother and daughter ensues. Mystique metamorphs back into her form. She reveals her mission was to get Rogue back into the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and orders her to pack her things while she finishes killing Professor X. Rogue says her powers are out of control and Professor X is her chance to have a normal life.

Appearing before the X-Men over a hologram, Mystique gives the X-Men an ultimatum. The freedom of the Brotherhood of Mutants in exchange for the life of Professor X. Storm, the leader of the X-Men, agrees to let the Brotherhood go free. Then, we see the bloodied body of Kitty Pryde on the floor.

However, she gives her word to no longer resist her promise and marry Caliban if the Healer can help resurrect Colossus.

Rogue agrees to Kitty’s plan. She begins to absorb Colossus’ powers enduring unimaginable pain. As Colossus reverts to his human form, “he has seconds to live.”2 Immediately, the Healer heals his wounds. Once the process is complete, Rogue has been turned into a statue. Storm laments that Rogue may have finally earned her place with the X-Men. In the end, Kitty is released from her promise and no longer has to marry Caliban nor live with the Morlocks.
