It has the potential to make her a stronger character. Storm's been around non stop since her introduction in largely the same role. No other character can really say that, and it's not a good thing. Characters need breaks from the spotlight, especially those with weaker dynamics than say, Panther or Cap.

And while she may not be getting a break, she is at least in a new role. It makes little sense given the current direction of the X-verse, but that direction makes little sense itself, so hey!

So I think it could be good for her, but I learned early on not to trust in Reggie's writing ability.

The more I look back at the de-powered Storm with a mohawk stories, the more I dislike them. Even the way she got her powers back seems distasteful to me, and I never liked the relationship with Forge -- though, oddly, the quickness of their break-up bothered me as well.

I have enjoyed Reggie's writing more than most, overall. However, regarding Storm, it is becoming more and more apparent to me that I hated how she was written from 1985-2006 -- despite never noticing my distaste.

For that realization, I can only thank RegHud.
