Storm and Spider-Man combined in Avengers’ Weirdste Variant Team

X-Men veteran and mutant Storm at the omega level are combined with the web-slinging Spider-Man in one of Marvel’s weirdest Avengers variant teams.

Two heroes who often have very little to do with each other are Storm and Spider Man. Although the two have at times worked together as part of a larger team, they are hardly an inseparable couple. Despite this, however, a wild What if…? story from Marvel combined the two heroes into one of the wildest hero combinations.

As the new Regent of Mars, Storm has proven to be a just leader among his mutant comrades and a ruthless warrior against mutant enemies like Tarn The Uncarrying. Her natural leadership skills and strategic prowess give her leadership of the X-Men after challenging Cyclops for the role and winning – without her mutant powers. Shortly after, she would lead the X-Men team: X-Men Gold with teammates Jean Gray, Colossus, Iceman, Archangel and Bishop versus Cyclops’ X-Men Blue with Wolverine, Jubilee, Psylocke, Beast, Rogue and Gambit. Storm’s heroism would attract the Avengers, who would recognize the achievements of the weather goddesses and recruit her as an official member of Avengers vol. 4 # 19. So of course, it would make sense for the current Voice of Sol to lead a group of different heroes like a web-slinger.

Marvel gag cartoon Marvel: What now ?! (2013) # 1 by Brian Posehn and Scottie Young is a one-shot collection of comic shorts that follows mashups of X-Men and Avengers characters. In one of these mashups, Storm becomes Spider-Storm, the new leader of the X-Vengers -a team of original characters based on current 21st-century Marvel heroes-. The variant hero team includes martial artist She-Shang Chi, Ben Grimm aka Thing Jr, and a gamma-ray red cable. Regardless of the team, Storm remains the same leader in every universe, including a crazy one where Peter Parker is dead and Dr. Octupus inhabits his body.

X-Vengers Marvel Storm Spider-Man

The base of Storms costume matches her original side-cut leotard and signature black knee-high boots from Giant-size X-Men and Creepy X-Men before she switched to her 80s punk mohawk look. The front of her jersey transforms into a traditional web design with the Spider-Man emblem redesigned to fit lightning, insinuating that her powers are a combination of the two. Her adorable web cape combines her shawl cap from her original X-Men costume and many Spider-Man costume cape iterations. Her headpiece crown connects with her half cloak – resembling Spider-Woman’s classic costume – and ends her look with an adorable spider web. The X-Vengers’ leader also shouts a slogan combining the infamous X-Men and Avengers war calls, further extending to Storms involvement on both teams.

The hilarious Marvel cartoon pays homage to Storm’s leadership through Marvel comics by combining her classic X-Men look with the titular Spider-Man. Not alien to strange transformations, as the omega mutant has turned into disgusting forms of Tarn The Uncaring and the King in Black Knull; however, Spider-Storm is the perfect combination of the fearless X-Men and the lovable web-slinger hero.
