Is Storm Overrated?

I know Ororo Munroe is showing up on different comics but most of them doesn't really show much about her. So is she overrated or not?

I dont know but her fan-boys can get really annoying.

I don't think she is overrated, but yes some of her fans can get a bit over-zealous, to say the least.

Overexposed yeah, but underrated, I don't think so.

This 1000X this.

Also flagging for spam. Jhazz, seriously stop spamming small stupid threads like this. Use the general storm discussion thread and not the general discussion forum.

define overrated

@jhazzroucher: She's only overrated when it comes to her humility, NOT when it comes to her power and skill! I want to see a story where Storm has to grapple with her own urge to let her godlike powers get the best of her!

@White Mage:

Take a step back bro. Breathe. Jhazz is an obvious troll. Sure he's made Storm a joke on this site, but still there are better ways to deal with it than that. Like flagging his posts, they're obvious spam and trollbait.

#21 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Damn, this escalated quickly lol

#22 Posted by TheCrowbar (4286 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: If you've been following this annoyance, it's been going on for years. Jhazz isn't a fan. If I were mod, he'd already be banned.

#23 Posted by SUNMAN (7139 posts) - - Show Bio

ok people need to relax. This is no worse than the dozens of other threads that get made on this site all the time.

And jhazzroucher is clearly a big Storm fan, I don't even think that's debatable no one would spend this much time talking about the character otherwise. I have pm's to vote for Storm in several threads to prove it.

Also I'm fairly certain Rlaamjr was a different person.

So people relax, there really is no reason to get all bent out of shape about this

I deleted my comment........I'm not getting "warned' over this.

Here's the deal, no good can come of this, and he knows it. He knew it when he made the thread, and he's not a child....he knows full well what he's doing, and I'm done with the BS. You don't get banned TWICE, and CURSED OUT on a completely separate site, and then continue with the same irrational behavior. You just DON'T.

No I do know. I've been on this site longer as a lurker than a poster.

@SUNMAN:

I don't believe you're correct. But that discussion was so long ago and so unimportant to me that I don't remember the details. Anyway, it's obvious Jhazz isn't a storm fan, this is a long game troll technique, nothing more.

#26 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

@crowbar: Oh yeah, the OP is the reason I hate this character. I just thought it was amusing that I finally read a whole post on his/her attitude towards OP and her excessive trolling that I entirely agree with. Been here a longish time, and its nice to see someone attempt to make a stand.

That's what happens when a troll makes a thread.

@SUNMAN: Don;t be naive they are definitely both the same person.

He's the EXACT same person

And there IS reason to get frustrated with a hardheaded individual who insists on doing stuff that, as usual, goes over everyone else's heads

Huh. Never put that together. They totally are the same person. Also, OP is a guy?

@TheCrowbar: I'm not a fan of lableing people trolls but I don't really see the point of starting an off-topic debate about this.

I don't frequent the storm threads that often even though I'm a fan, but its clear she has become very popular on this site. I remember she wasn't nearly this popular several years ago when I use to frequent comicvine. I just think Jhazz is a vocal storm fan. I'm not bothered by her posts/threads nor do I feel the need to reply to them all.

I'm just not seeing not seeing the trolling, I mean random threads like this are made and closed or deleted all the time. Jhazz just seems like someone procrastinating on a message board eager to talk about random Storm stuff.

Also I never understood why people familiar with a fictional character would let another message board poster drastically influence their opinion on said character. I mean like most I have my disagreements with people online over this and that but I don't feel its drastically changed my perception of characters I'd been reading about prior.

Additionally, isn't trolling typically characterized by flaming or taunting?

@Roddy010: @White Mage: are u guys checking IP's or something?

I remember Rlaamjr from CBR and he or she didn't word posts the way Jhazz does. Aside from them both being Storm fans, idk they just seem different but whatever I didn't mean to take things off track here just throwing in my last 2 cents on this

Spamming also counts. And this IS a taunt. But, again, I don't expect for EVERYONE to know this, as Rbysjti/Rlaamjr/Jhazzroucher clearly has established that he's quite miraculous when it comes to saving face, and being "innocent". This isn't the first site that he's done this on, and this isn't the first time that he's done this in order to get back at "fellow fans" like me, and a few others......and his Wonder Woman thread getting deleted did not help matters, apparently

I am so tired of threads like these and Jhazz in general. Why he continues to post on this site knowing that he is despised by 90% of the posters on here (and practically every other site he gets on) is simply beyond me.

@jhazzroucher: On topic, Storm is not overrated. You are just THE nightmare fanboy for her. It is time for you to...

It sickens me that you would stoop this low and post this beautiful art of Ororo to save face.

You should be ashamed of yourself, Jhazz.

I agree with this absolutely. Jhazz might be a troll, so what, trolls only have power when you pay them attention. If everyone who replied to this thread not on topic had just ignored the thread thread it would have faded away into obscurity. Instead its bumped and now people are having full on conversations with each other and keeping this thread in the limelight longer whilst probably making posters react uncontrollably because admonishing someone's behavior while being guilty of the same behavior always works out. The most Jhazz could have done is bumped it like twice? Then maybe made another thread in which case just send a quiet and polite PM too them. Or asking a moderator to step in.

Back on topic (and if anyone replies to me off topic I will reply via PM okay, advanced warning)

Back on topic - I think Storm is some parts overrated and some parts underrated. Reading a lot of posts at this site have seen people admit to not reading certain X-Men eras, I think a lot of Storms best stories were in the past and that they were wicked badass. Very underrated. Also psychologically the way most people gauge such things tends to be lacking. Meaning your not suppose to react to reactions if you want objectivity. React to something substantial and objective. Viewing a character based on how others view the character gives you an inaccurate representation of the character

I feel, and have seen, that trolls tend to have power whether you pay attention to them or not....like spambots
