Its not my intent to nitpick, I just respectfully disagree with your comment. Storm isn't a permanent guest-star, she's a cast member. Even the FF aren't permanent guest-stars. They'll be around for a few issues then they're gone.

Regarding Storm, I think its a win-win situation. She also benefits because she's getting more exposure and attention than she ever got as being one out of twenty or more X-Men, all vying for attention in their comics. In BLACK PANTHER, she's basically a co-star out of two characters.

Storm has never needed to vie for attention as a member of the X-Men. As leader of one team, and Claremont's clear favorite, she's always had a lion's share of the focus.

That said, Hudlin having the character could easily be a plus for her. Claremont's take on the character has gotten a little...old, to put it politely. As a writer, Hudlin gives Storm a new interpretation, new cast and new background, which in many ways can only be a plus for a character written by the same writer for so very long.
