>most powerful mutant on the world stage
So how do you make Storm one of the most powerful people on a planet in a way that makes sense? Between her human durability, characters that can do the same things she does and more like Meggan, and Crystal. Powerhouses that can break planets like Carol, Hulk Sentry, Black Bolt, and Thor. She doesn't come off as ultra high tier. It's not an issue in X-books but they seem to want to keep that narrative going while she ventures out into wider MU with the Avengers.

    Are you speaking out against black excellence, chuddie? Don't you have a Cinemaphile thread to shit up about how Yasuke triggers you?

    There is no getting around the defense and durability thing. One of the biggest stormwank complaints during the Krakoa era was that she is never around for any fight she can't win and most of the time enemies don't get to or even try to attack her. The writers don't want to explain how she could survive by just surrounding herself with a tight ball of wind so they don't even try.

      Yeah, it's pretty obvious when her opponents that can easily overpower her are just standing there talking or are somehow just caught unawares by her powers instead of doing anything to actually harm her. They can't remind the audience how she's lacking in some way, so they'll just have her take them out with a bolt of lightning or something else that's easily telegraphed, or just leave her out of a fight entirely.

    She couldn't even defeat a weaker Iron-man variant.

    Storm is a reality manipulator. Just look at what she did to Vulcan.

      I understand the explanation and it is all very plausible but it is all unnecessary since everyone knew Storm wouldn't be allowed to lose. You could just save the panels by having Storm show up to a conflict, say "I'm Storm" and have the fight be decided with that, and then have more pages for other shit.

        They did this with Sam by having him beat up Bucky, T'Challa, and Steve, they've done it with Miles styling on Peter, and they're doing it with Storm by having her just beat everyone just because. It's not empowering to have these characters winning so effortlessly, it just makes everything they do feel unearned by making everyone inept, like trying to siphon Batman's "make everybody moronic when I enter the room so I don't look useless" energy.

          That honestly pretty ridiculous. Falcon even on a good day can't defeat either of those 3 super soldiers on a bad day. It's not like Falcon is a master martial artists with chi powers.

            He didn't even have his gear for the BP fight and was holding his own with full vibranium suit T'challa before calling the birds subdue BP.

      It's crazy to think that Crystal could have soloed him in one panel with a water gun attack

    Storm literally has no personality or character outside of the X-Men. Her Avengers stint won't last a year.

    >Crystal
    Wait I thought her power was more like the Avatar, you know direct elemental control like sure she could simulate some of what Storm does but not everything and not at the scale she conjures them just like Storm wouldn't be able to do half of what Crystal does

      She's never been limited to just to just four elements and Storm herself said she was her equal. She accidentally created life with her powers. Crystal just doesn't get used often even during the Inhuman push.

    I don't think you can because they keep giving several X-men with very hax powers massive power ups.

    Like how Jean Grey is potentially in a similar level to Xavier telepathic powers AND she took down Gladiator who tanked supernovas with her telekinesis, all that without the Phoenix.
