STORM RETURNS TO THE X-MEN IN X-MEN WORLDS APART

She is the Queen of Wakanda, the "Mistress of the Elements" and a former leader of the X-Men – her name is Ororo Monroe, aka Storm!  From fan-favorite X-scribe Christopher Yost (X-Force, New X-Men), comes the Storm story everyone’s been waiting for starting this fall with X-Men: Worlds Apart #1 (of 4)!  After a mutant commits a puzzling murder in the heart of Wakanda, Storm feels obligated to investigate the case, but on her own terms.  What she discovers, though, may force her into a position where she must decide: Will she remain a queen or return to her mutant teammates, the X-Men? 

Christopher Yost told Marvel.com, "She has the aloofness of a goddess, but once you get inside her head, there’s so much more…As a goddess, she was worshipped, as an X-Man she was hated and feared, and as Queen of Wakanda, she’s respected and loved…The story is about Storm deciding who she is."

"Warren Ellis is the only writer I’ve read who has never let me down… The single thing that Ellis does that makes him my favorite working writer is what makes me so excited about this iteration of the X-Men.
