I'm actually pretty hyped for this Storm. This is already a way better take on Ororo than all of the Halle Berry ones
Storm isn't supposed to look Nubian. She's supposed to have characteristics of all races. She's supposed to have Asian facial features, black skin, Caucasian hair, in addition to mutant features like having cat eyes, white hair and being a 6'6 amazonian woman. These contributed to her being worshipped as a goddess. She's supposed to be the pinnacle of mutant evolution, transcending the human race completely
It's important for her character that as a teenager Ororo was rebellious and involved with the punk counter culture before becoming a matured woman and one of the leaders of the X-Men
Xavier bringing all the Horseman back will hopefully be expressed as crazy psychedelic mind battles against the demons Apocalypse has infected them with.
I love that Xavier is the main character in these movies. He's so under utilized in the comics
This is a better take than Berry's, too. I mean, just look at how much better it is at emoting...
First issue was 31k, seventh issue was barely 15,5k, last issue had 12,5k sales. Only good thing from her solo was cover art.
Don't you know about great schism between Stormfags? Some claim she's not African enough.
>Only good thing from her solo was cover art.
Well, I had in mind #1. Art in comics was horsecock, though.
I have never liked Storm. Not once, in the entire history of the character. I think she is the single worst member of the X-Men ever conceived and she drags down every book she's in to an immeasurable degree. The closest I ever got to liking her was Marvel Adventures, and that got canned before she could do anything beyond be inoffensive and kind of cute with Thor.
Can someone shill her to me? Is there something I'm just not getting about her? Because she strikes me as the worst possible mix of boring and in-your-face. She's not content to be mediocre, she has to remind me at every turn just how fucking nothing of a character she is beyond "I'm generically black, vindictive and unkind towards characters who are better written than me, and the leader of the X-Men when Charles, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Jean Grey are all either dead or out of town at the same time."
Go to CBR and learn everything about OMEGA POTENTIONAL mutant who is better thief than Gambit, better wizard than Strange, better tactical genius than anyone else in Marvel. I probably miss some of bullshit they claim, though.
>Not once, in the entire history of the character.
Did you read the entire history of the character? If so, fair enough, but I found she was pretty decent during the Claremont days. Never since, obviously, but still.
I hate this storm, why couldn't get a darker woman to play her? Her white hair does not contrast properly with her skin. Fuck fox
For a moment you got me.
Had to google toveryfie if its just a look alike or really her. Since both pics screamed porno.
At least her name "Lana Condor" sounds like a porn biz name.

This actress doesn't have the body, anon
They took off the mouth lines (they didn't even take them off all the way) and made him slightly different robotic, but that's fucking Apocalypse, man. That's what he looks like. The head cables are straight off of him, the cowl-pauldron-mantle-thing, the colors, the eyes, whatever the fuck has always been going on with his scalp who even KNOWS, that's all him. Apocalypse has always looked ridiculous and over the top.
Punk Storm happened after she was a teenager, when she was already an X-Man, and when she was in fact the leader. So everything that just came out of your mouth is bullshit.
She had it more than three months, and that's not what a meme is.
Actually, now that I think about it, a lot of what you said is wrong. The cowl/pauldrons thing and the head cables aren't typically part of him - he usually doesn't wear a cape, and the cables are usually connecting his arm and back. As well, his skin is gray, not blue. I would say Isaac's Apocalypse physically resembles Archangel a lot more than Apocalypse.
>According to Singer, Psylocke is working behind the Iron Curtain for the mutant-broker Caliban.
Shit, what does that even mean? Why is Calliban in Soviet territory? Why is a British... Duchess? (What's the Braddock's royal title?) doing there either? Does Fox have the rest of her family?
Jean was his fifth student. Iceman, Beast, Cyclops, and Angel were all already at the Institute on her first day.
That's the only thing that really gets me. The face being gray/white eould have been better. But then I see pic related and its perfect so that's why I'm holding off my verdict for the actual film.
What? No, I refuse to accept that.
Wow, what is that from? He looks great. There was an edit done on /co/ when the first image of Pokky was released where they made his skin gray and gave him the lips and I remember it looking really good.
Ivan Ooze I can get over, but casting Olivia Munn?
Jesus fucking Christ. It's like the producers turned round and decided 'oh hey, that Lawrence girl phoning it in and bringing down the entire movie for the third time isn't enough. Who can we get to put in this who'll be as bad or worse?'
She's giving it her all desu
Gotta respect that. And her acting was good in The Newsroom, i think she can make a good Psylocke.
you can't just do moves like these- she must've had some training prior her this film training. i imagine she won't be doing the heavy lifting in regards to more enduring physical stunts, but this is a hopeful sign.
already she's a better pick for ww than gadot. good lord, i'm actually excited to see her as psylocke now. thanks for posting these!
and i did like her in newsroom, although the writing for the show just fell off.
also, sauce on gif?
I respect her efforts and think she'll probably do a decent job, or at the very least better than Gadot.
But I still hate her. I can't forgive anyone who participated in Attack of the Show.
Truly I am the most vile of shitlords. I pray this new offering eases you rage, mistress.
MFW RLAAMRJ is still saner than 90% of the Stormfag in CBRhell.
>Vietnamese girl playing Jubilation
>korean chick playing Mantis whose comic ethnicity is Vietnamese
My ethnicity is getting repped and their showcasing it the best way with Viet chicks. I fucking love Vietnamese girls.
Oh. Well, is she half alien or what's up with the green skin and antennae? I always thought the way she talked (this one) was just the magic space translators not fully grasping her language.
