    For the fans of Storm or regular X-Men readers, Storm #4 continues to be a wonderful addition to Storm’s character trajectory into who she becomes during the modern day. Instead of being bombarded with several comic books that all must be read simultaneously, this story can be read strictly on its own. This section of Storm’s life is coming to a speedy climax, but it’s important to pick up this issue if you’ve enjoyed the previous comic books so far. You don’t want to miss what happens next!

    Storm #4 uses a dialog-heavy issue to reveal major swaths of Blowback’s identity and the mystery surrounding its arrival. The character work is better, and the dialog is better, but the art is still average, and the plot/plan surrounding Blowback is unnecessarily convoluted.

    Storm’s story feels like it’s getting away from itself. Past issues have been more team-book than solo series, and this issue mostly splits its time between Rogue’s story and Ororo’s. The two end up entwined, but in a way where Storm’s side of it is entirely predictable, while Rogue’s hits character beats we’ve gotten from her many times before. The issue offers some answers about the mystery Blowback entity that has menaced Storm throughout the series, but they raise even more questions and make the affair more convoluted than it needs to be. The artwork here isn’t as tight as in previous issues, though there are some subtle storytelling details. Even so, Storm is becoming a bit exhausting to keep up with.
