Is that 'cutting loose' enough for you?
Do you prefer a hero who will confirm your deepest fears? Or a hero who will inspire faith in humanity and goodness?

For Storm, that's normal; not cutting loose.  Cutting loose for Storm would have everyone else hidding behind Sue's shields while Storm takes out all of the enemy.  This is normal Storm.

HOWEVER, it looks very good.  Storm taking care of everything would be less impressive.

It looks like we finally get to see more action, as for Storm I'll wait and read before I decide whats going down with that. But I can't wait to see what happens when they get their hands on Walter Declun.

Actually I would have to say no. Don't get me wrong, this story definitely is the sh*t. But if this Storm cutting loose then Fraction also had her cutting loose, which by the way is total bullsh*t.

See Storm has been portrayed as this regal domme with quick wits and a will of iron who is a Omega Level Mutant to boot.

So while Storm got a great deal of dialogue in Doomwar 1 and 2 she wasn't taking charge (she was a prisoner) of the situation and she wasn't overpowering everybody (because Doom and the Desturi had negated her power) either. So the Storm fans are unsatisfied and are now still complaining.

They want to see her taking charge of the situation or overpowering people or both.

Which could still happen in issue 4 or even issue 6.

See Vic, I wouldn't have a problem with your comment if you weren't insisting I was complaining. You can keep that. Storm got me into reading Black Panther related titles. That's first and foremost, so of course I'm gonna be a lil more interested in HER character development. I voiced my opinion when I felt as though Maberry did a good job. Which I do whenever I go into a Doomwar thread. I bought two issues of every issue so far,and NOT because of Storm. The story is off the chain, and THAT happens to be what keeps me spending money. Not to mention that months before this mini hit shelves I was promised an unforgettable Storm moment. So I wasn't supposed to expect it, when i was TOLD to expect it? That's BULLsh*t!!! And come whatever day in May when I go to purchase MY next two issues of the series, if I happen to still be underwhelmed with Storm's portrayal in this story, I'll voice that too. So you can eagerly await to see if this Storm fan complains again. FOH

I didn't say that you should not be complaining, I was explaining to O.P. what the issue was in the first place.

Since he sort of asked.

She took down those Desturi recently in issue #3. But I doubt she would be leading a force against Doom in this storyline. And what happened to the X-Men? They just left after rescuing her?

She's probaly not going after Doom, their going after Declun, you can't capture the king until you get his pieces off the board first. The X-men probably left, once they realized that Storm was O.K., that was their primary purpose for getting involved. As for Storm cutting loose, I remember Maberry saying something like "Storm is Nice, but what she does won't be" and "their will be blood" so who knows :-\

I know what you said. You said the Storm fans are unsatisfied and are now still complaining. You didn't quote the OPand you didn't quote me for that matter either, but your passive-aggressive post was right after mine. In all honesty I answered the OP, you didn't. But I'll drop it. Maybe I took it the wrong way. And I apologize if I did.

The story is great and I love the scale of it and I am happy it is doing well. I love the fabulous fighting femmes in preview... I'm cool with seeing Storm featured, the more the better.

In all this where are the Hatut Zeraze? surely they should have been either part of the rebellion or the rescue.
