Hands down storm is an A-list character. Whether or not she's held a sucessful so serious doesn't matter. If that were the case there would are be no women or minorities on the A list. So outside of white men being the only a-listers we have to look in the world of women and minorities. Storm has been in the forefront of the x-men for over 25 years from the comics to the cartoon to the movies. She is one of the most recognizable female/African American superheroes. There have been dozens of story arcs where she's been a central character in for more than a decade she was the main leader of the x-men. The fact that my mother, who has never read a comic book, can recognize and knows who storm is shows you how popular she is. So besides Wonder Woman she is the most popular female superhero and I can't even compare another minority to her, she is probably the most recognizable and popular minority character. Therefore she is an a-lister.
Thank you for the post. : )
have to agree.
there are VERY few female a-list characters from either house of comics... and from the marvel side only one has earned it... Storm. Black Widow is now the only rival, and her position is solely based on the success of the movies, and Scarlett Johansson's deriere.
DC brings us WW and Catwoman... and, like Black Widow - and for similar enough reasons (Batman TAS vs. The Avengers movie), Harley Quinn...
The thing is Storm hasn't earned anything. There are no facts to back Storm being A-list
BUt there is
What exactly she's only in the movies and cartoons by association, you need to be able to carry an ongoing to be called A-List
it's not only. besides, movies and cartoon and video games are bigger medium than comics.
and she isn't at the forefront of any of the above
She unintentionally came out as the forefront in MVC2. She and Jean are also the best female ladies to use in UMVC3.
In cartoons, she had her moments too.
In movies, she's one of the main characters
