  • Storm travels to her home in Africa and learns of a "shadowy" threat to the village

    this episode had some much more potential than it realized. there was no backstory to fall back on and it seemed to be too many plotholes.
    first off having Storm be a mother is like having Batman get married, it just shouldnt happen, spiritually or otherwise. they attempted to flesh out Storm's past and her associations with the village but didnt give the fans something substantial other than now we know she's from somewhere near Mt. Kilimanjaro.
    the Shadow King would be a whole lot more kick-@$$ if they hadnt already promised the season to Sinister. oh well....
    the chase scene as Mj'Nari race to trap our shadowy friend back on the astral plane is the highlight of an otherwise less than stellar episode.
    the Wolverine side-story was too short and probably was ended eary because they intended to use Omega Red coming up and needed Wolverine for that story. still doesnt excuse the rushed feeling of the segment.
    the obligatory Xavier/Magneto update wouldnt have been as necessary nor as regular as it was in season 2 but that's the plan i suppose...
