Personally I think she looks better then most takes of Storm.
Her Tattoos give her a bit more character.
Yet her body language and facial expressions make her far more personal then they have EVER allowed Storm to show.
And I NEVER liked Storms mohawk.
Its like they could never get past her looks, and just give her a personality that wasn't just, Stand there and Look cool.
Even after all this time Storm really is very underdeveloped as a character.
Even though she has been supposedly the leader of various X-Men teams. It seems she was only in charge because her weather control power allowed her to beat most anyone in a fight.
Personality wise, she is like a brick to the side of the head.
Its like if it was D&D she would have almost Zero Charisma.
Don't get me wrong though, sometimes, some writers would actually try to flesh her out a bit, but when someone else took over, its like any fallow ups would just die on the vine.
Considering her origins and what she can do, you'd think she'd have more character.
But then again, maybe that's the problem. Optic Blast, Super Healing, Telekinetics; even Freeze powers have more visual appeal then weather control. Maybe if she could shoot Lightning Bolts out of her hands or something, it make her seem more "marketable" but I cant recall anyone ever really doing it that way. I don't even know if she could be considered immune to that sort of thing.
Yet being able to make Tornadoes and Lightning Storms; in a closed room fight, not the best to have around; but out in the open with multiple targets to hit, she is definitely the AOE bomber of the group.
And if I recall correctly, she spent some of her youth being a sneak thief in Egypt or some place like that for a while.
So she definitely has some other skills to fall back on in a close quarter fight.
Yet personality wise, never could really come to really like her.
Way to aloof and never really inclined to laugh, at ANYTHING.
Seriously if we want that, we always have Wolverine. (If that guy ever even chuckled, its only because he just went insane. AGEAN).
But then I just went way off topic.
Like it very much.
Keep up the good work.
Trust your instincts.
They seem to be serving you quite well in art.
