Claremont & Smith reunite for Ororo in ‘X-Men Unlimited #39’

Official Press Release

[X-Men Unlimited #39]

Ever since he was handed X-MEN UNLIMITED, associate editor C.B. Cebulski has
strived to offer a different experience to fans of the ever-popular mutants.
This November, as the title upgrades to a monthly schedule, Cebulski
delivers an extra-special treat when a trio of talented teams focus on the
weather-manipulating Storm!

“In X-MEN UNLIMITED #39, three different creative teams tell three different
stories about three different periods of the Windrider’s life,” explained
Cebulski. “All stories are new reader friendly and accessible to X-Men fans
of all ages.”

Cebulski has supplied a rundown of the tales:

“In the first story, written and penciled by Jason Pearson, The Master of
Magnetism has picked the wrong day to visit Ororo as he catches her in a
time of grief. It’s Storm vs. Magneto, as the deadliest mutant on the planet
is about to find out why it is unwise to cross the weather-controlling


In chapter two — by writer J. Torres and penciler Keron Grant — Storm,
after suffering injury and humiliation at the hands of Khan in the most
recent issues of X-TREME X-MEN, needs some personal time for peace of mind
and healing. As she travels to Japan for some R&R, she finds she is
unwelcome there as the hot-tempered Sunfire bars her entry to the country.
But she is no longer the Storm that Sunfire remembers — and he quickly
becomes an unwilling victim to her more aggressive nature!


Finally, in story three, it’s a tale that X-Men readers have been waiting
nearly 20 years for! Yes, after nearly two decades, the classic UNCANNY
X-MEN creative team of Chris Claremont and Paul Smith reunite for a new
story! In an adventure that fans have been clamoring for, Chris and Paul
finally reveal what happened between UNCANNY X-MEN #173 and #174. Witness
first-hand Storm’s amazing transformation into the leather-clad, mohawked
punk rocker! What caused Storm to undergo this startling change in Japan?
Find out for the first time here!”

Sporting a cover by Chris Bachalo, X-MEN UNLIMITED #39 goes on sale November
27th. The initial order cut-off date for this issue is October 4th, with a
final order cut-off date of November 7th.
