I know a majority of the X-Men inspired moments comes from the Ultimate Universe but I just don't like how Storm is portrayed in the films. Appearance-wise strikes me first.

I don't know about them being inspired by the Ultimate X-men, in fact, I don't really think there is much at all.

But, yeah, Storm is definitely not as prominent in the films, she does have more of a leadership role in the second movie, but she is not the regal woman-turned-bad-ass like she was in the comics.

I thought their appearances were inspired by the Ultimate X-Men universe?

I think it was the other way round, actually. The X-Men movie came out first in 2000, with black leather outfits because the producers thought blue spandex was too tacky. It inspired the Ultimate X-Men series in 2001, and subsequently Morrison's New X-Men run too.

Oh...

Storm doesnt have a BF in the film which is weird for someone her age. x-movies ruined everyones relationship. The only one that was worth remembering was the rogue/iceman/kitty triangle. Who know iceman was a player.....lol

Haha... true.

Well this is exciting... but predictable. They wanted an even stronger story that showcased Wolverine so this movie will definitely show another side to his already multiple personality character. But maybe we'll get some really good cameos of awesome characters. Wonder if the woman playing Blink in X-Men: DoFP will reprise her role?

@papad1992: ''Wields a psychic arrow and strikes you down!''

Me :''Summons* WINDS RISE UP PROTECT ME! TORNADO APPEARS TO STRIKE HER DOWN"

"Runs away now!"

Oook... anyways... now that we've established your insanity, we can move on.

I know comicbook-wise Storm is going through the mohawk-phase again but does she have to have this spiky pixie-cut!? It's very unappealing to her as a character. Storm is supposed to be a beautiful African goddess... Halle Berry does not look anywhere near those words!

Storm has a had a short hair cut in the comics during the early 90s, as well as in the Ultimate Universe. It fits her character just fine

Moonstar: Leader/Tracker

Pixie: Teleporter

Warpath: Tank

Hepzibah: Feral/Marksman

Husk: Shapeshifter

Chamber: Powerhouse

Sage: Mission Ops

I think these 7 would be pretty great, I'd give a book that was just them a shot.

I know right! But no Nocturne love!?

@papad1992: well it does say 7 characters.

What would your 7 be exactly?

Ooh... must have missed that little tidbit.

Um... I'd narrow it down to:

Moonstar: Leader/Tracker

Pixie: Teleporter

Warpath: Tank

Hepzibah: Feral/Marksman

Husk: Shapeshifter

Chamber: Powerhouse

Nocturne: Stealth

and

Sage: Mission Ops

Sage doesn't count... she's mission op.
