Did anyone else get annoyed by how Storm was portrayed in the movies?? I kinda was, when u kno who Storm is the character and how she is the movie didn't really depict her the way I probably would if I had a say LOL she came off kind of weak which is one thing Storm is not, the special effects used were ok but not what I'd expect for someone who can 'control the elements of the weather'. When you look at the Airbender movie and how nice those epcial effects were OH! and Watchmen...u think to ur self "y the fuck didn't they do this for X-Men". Now the 3rd movie kinda redeemed itself slightly LOL
now Halle Berry is probably my favorite actress, but i wasn't jumpin up & down over performance, not that it was 'bad', just the way it was written...Halle just portrayed Storm the way she was written in the script, so I dnt have bad feelings toward my girl Halle
but I hope this X-men First Class movie is much better
Well as a kid I wasn't too familiar with a lot of superheros, and definitely not black superheros. I used to watch X-Men the Animated series a lot and I just loved seein this black woman who would control the weather. I always liked her features, the white hair contrasting with her brown skin, and in the animated series her costume she wore was white too. As a kid I often thought how cool it would be if I could make a snow storm so school could be closed LOL
As I got older I understood the science behind X-Men and their abilities and what 'bein a mutant' was for them. So I started reading comics, when I was a kid I never touched a comic book lol, I started buying those Marvel/X-Men books and reading up on Storm. When you think about her abilities (weather control) shes pretty powerful! Understanding how weather works and everything related to it you understand how powerful she is.
As I started reading the comics I learned more about Storm the character and I'd have to say I kinda admire her. Shes always stuck by the ones she loves, shes very brave...unless u put her in a small tight space, has complete control of her powers, strong minded, strong willed, principled, outspoken etc etc One thing I like about her 'will' is the fact that for telepaths shes no easy target, I consider them to be the most dangerous types of mutants in my opinion
So I'd have to say I'm a true Storm fan & a big one :-)
