CBCC 61:Ororo & Callisto - X-Treme X-Men: The Arena

February 6, 2021

Ororo & Callisto - enemies turned friends turned enemies turned companions. These two warriors rage against each other time and time again, and in doing so, they discover the ties that bind them. Or are those tentacles?

X-Couple month continues as we look at these combatants as seen in the X-Treme X-Men storyline, "The Arena." To help us discuss their unique romance, we're using "The Normal Bar: Where Does Your Relationship Fall?" by Chrisanna Northrup, Pepper Schwartz, and James Witte. Does analyzing your relationship by comparing it to others work?

Those looking to explore Ororo & Callisto's relationship further should read Sara Century's excellent piece, "Storm vs. Callisto, and the Uneasy Alliance of Heroes and Villains."

Issues covered in this episode: "X-Treme X-Men" issues 36 - 39, written by Chris Claremont, penciled by Igor Kordey, and inked by Kordey, Scott Hanna, Sandy Florea, Mark McKenna, Andrew Pepoy, Norm Rapmund, and Josef Rubinstein. The colors are provided by Transparency Digital and the letters by VC’s Rus Wooten. Special shout-out to cover artist Salvador Larroca.
