Storm from the original Marvel Comics in the 1980s used to be such a bad ass. The hairstyle alone shouts; ‘don’t mess with me’. I guess in the animated series they decided to soften her and make her the motherly figure of the Xavier School.
However, I would have loved to have seen this version of Storm appear in the X-Men movies of the 2000s. I think it would have generated a following that The Dark Knight series has garnered.
