What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

When I heard about the Marvel I was excited immediately. The coverstock from the Virtual Gravity combined with the Centripetal core, just sounds like a winner. I used the same layout as another one of my favorite Master line balls, the Dimension. I also used this layout on the new Victory Road to see these balls side by side.

I had heard the ball had amazing movement in the mid-lane setting up a perfect shape at the breakpoint. This layout should assist that motion and really give us a good look.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I know every review seems good but when you throw these balls they really are that good. Storm constantly puts out equipment that not only does what they say it will do but they work well and compliment each other perfectly.

The Marvel is no exception the this statement. I was absolutely amazed at how good this ball was overall. Just like you came to expect throwing the Virtual Gravity the Marvel's 2000 grit cover handled the heads great. It was strong but did not read the friction too much.

As the ball got down lane it really started the shine. Storm talks a lot about the mid-lane movement this ball makes and how important that is to setting up a good shape on the backend. The Marvel does it all, it read the mid-lane every time just when it needed to and because it constantly got into such a good place in the middle it was always in the right place on the backend and at the pins.

Overall I found it a little stronger then the previous release in this product line, the Prodigy, but it still complimented Storm's line.

With the release of the Marvel and the Victory Road I think Storm has started the new year off right and I am excited to see what is to come from the Bowler's Company.
