THE COMICS' BEAT: Storm (and many more) In Last Emperor's 'Secret Wars, Part 1'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, it's an awesome comic rap duel, literally. Everybody loves Marvel 80's crossover Secret Wars, where the heroes and villains fought unleashed. But what if on one side were Marvel's best picked by Stan Lee, and the other the top rappers ready to duel, picked by The Emperor himself?

Not only do we get beats detailing the beatdowns between Redman vs Hulk and Thing, Dr Octopus vs Busta Rhymes, Wolverine vs Method Man and more - we also get this Storm vs Lauryn Hill verse;

Now with all these heroes down, Stan Lee refuses to surrender
He got Storm from the X-Men, as if I couldn't match the gender
Stan Lee shouts 'Excelsior!' Yo, Stan you best to chill
'There's no match for Storm,' I guess he's never heard of Lauryn Hill.

Now we all know Storm controls the temperature and weather
Started runnin' off at the lip, and L-Boog was like 'Whatever'
See she just got home from tours, she's a bit too tired to spar
So she clocked Storm over the head with my man Wyclef's guitar

 What do you think?  Full lyrics are here. Be back here next Monday for another Comic Beat!


  1. LOVE that Storm art! Is it fan-art or is that from something?

  2. It's wicked isn't it King? It puts a bit more Beyonce into comics #1 weather woman. Storm is my fav X-Woman, so I have a folder of images I think of as Ororo done right. This one is by 'yuuyuutaruu' and titled: Original Goddess.
