Announced at this weekend's Avengers
panel at New York Comic Con
, legendary X-Woman Storm
will be joining the ranks of Earth's mightiest heroes. The move becomes real in January's Avengers
#19 by Brian Michael Bendis
and Daniel Acuña
, and is believed to be a consequence of the events of Fear Itself.
Gifted with the power to fly and control the weather, Storm is the second member of the X-Men to become a permanent Avenger in recent history. Marvel and writer Bendis caused a controversy among many fans when Wolverine joined the team in 2005.
