    Of course he would get with her. Storm is pretty hot. It’s a good match.

    I’m waiting for Cyclops and Wolverine to just admit their feelings for each other already.

    A war between Cyke’s little island and Wakanda, greeeeeeaaaaatttt. Also, this means pissed off Emma Frost. She doesn’t take things as easily as Jean did.

    Could this be an alternate universe thing…? An Age of Apocalypse Storm or something? When did she go back to the Mohawk?

    Once again, Marvel. Shock over Substance. However, I have to say… “Damn! Nice ‘shock’. “

    I feel compelled to say the following: We ALLLLL know that the cover is a perfectly complete & accurate indicator of the comic book’s contents. :-/ So yeah, this? Probably, like, a scene from a dream or something. I’m hoping they’ll prove me wrong, but I’ve been cover-burned so many times already..

    Does anyone else feel that the cover makes no sense–no, not the kissing–the position of the kissers. It’s like they were wrestling and Scott just went for it or something… looks weird.

      It’s almost, but not quite as bad, as the twist-my-torso-so-both-my-butt-and-boobs-are-showing poses that Psylocke automatically gets thrown into.

    Maybe one of them is infected by a parasite entity or an alien or ‘something’ that has to infect another through touch? It wouldn’t be the first time Storm was involved with that kind of a creature.

    I’d also agree with a lot of the above comments, she’s married, hair do (flashback?), Age of Apocalypse. There are a LOT of reasons on why this could be easily explained by something else entirely.

    I would enjoy watching T’Challa whoop Summer’s skinny butt all over that rock.

    It could be Frenzy with a hair change. She’s certainly dressed like Frenzy.
