Official Press Release

"X-Men: Worlds Apart" #1

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.”

You cannot dare miss X-Men: Worlds Apart #1 (of 4)!
