Storm of the X-men

Maybe I just don’t get it.

But I really believe that Hollywood messed up the character Storm. And because of the idiots in Hollywood, who wasted the talents of Halle Berry, you now get folks on the NPR who base their knowledge of a story on the Hollywood version and write:

While there are lots of brown superpeople in the fictional universes that these heroes inhabit, they’re usually tertiary characters.

Storm, from the the comic in the 80s and 90s was awesome. Yes, she caused fear, awe and wonder. She was a major character, she led the X-men for the decade I followed the comic. She changed and grew as a character. When lost her mutant powers, and boring Cyclops challenged her to be the leader, she kicked his ass, had the respect of the other X-men, and continued to lead. The first X-men movie had none of the depth, character, emotion, struggles that the comic book did. Halle Berry was paid to stand around in leather pants and make one mediocre joke.

I’ve only seen X-men (2000), maybe they got better writing for the incredibly talented Ms Berry.

I would also like to point out that when Tony Stark was an alcoholic in the comics, James Rhodes took over…we can only hope Chiwetel Ejiofor is available for Iron Man 4.
