What exactly would it take to make Panther and Storm top-tier characters...not only in the Marvel Universe but in society's collective mind?

What would it take to make society stop and say "Wow...Panther and Storm are cool!" \(\?\)

One of the reasons I've seldom been a BP fan is because I flatout don't want to read about a king hero. Becoming a king should be what heroes do when their story is done. The only times I've liked Namor was when he wasn't ruling Atlantis. I'm fairly certain that Aragorn became a dullard after the One Ring was slagged, too.

On top of this, T'Challa is like Reed Richards. Reed ain't selling a book, either. Ever. Don't get me wrong: I do like the character, but not enough to buy a book about him.

Storm is kind of similar. The only time I think she was remotely interesting enough to sell a book was when she was flirting with lesbianism (literally) with Yukio or Callisto and dressing like a biker. The recent mini was cool, but typically, Ororo shows less personality than T'Challa and Reed.

As far as the couple thing goes, they both really need someone who is more wild than they are... at least if they want to be an intriguing pair. This is why Storm works so well with Yukio, Callisto, Wolverine, and Gambit.

City of Heroes is BACK!
