    Are these countries trying to say that Mutants having a their own country is not ethical or something??? I do enjoy Politics, but i'm not that knowledgeable about it. So hopefully someone can explain......
    I think it has to do with the drug. Like taking a drug that extends life and takes care of all ailments might be seen as an affront to God. Like how some feel taking someone off life support is murder and others think it's mercy. That's my best guess. It doesn't jell with their religious beliefs.

    No problem.
    That one could be a lot of reasons. They could have plans for their own mutants. Like we know for a fact Russia experiments on mutants. It could be an election season and those politicians think voters are not pro mutant and thereby their chances of reelection are better if they vote against. It could also be they want an even better deal or more assurances.

    Great up-close art by Arthur Adams of Storm's face on the cover of Classic X-Men #3 (November, 1986).

To see if Charles would manipulate the Russians to say yes (they didn't, they abstained and then voted no on the trade) or because he wanted to help the mutants. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one though. It doesn't change anything else for me, Wakanda didn't know either way and they never follow behind other people so they made the choice on their own. He said permanent members and only mentioned Russia as only ONE needed to say no for them to fail.
    that's fine to agree to disagree.

A greater potential conflict, IMO, would be the countries who opted-out for the first two reasons.
    hahaha I actually like this assessment.

    She looks so great! I want him doing some interior art with Storm in it. He did a great job in Thor with weather effects and lightning.

    Look at it again...closely...her chest isn't that big. What you're also seeing is her hips, as a result of the perspective used.

    Oh, I acknowledge her like nothing before her. The most beautiful thing about his rendition of her is her head. Only now am I realizing that her new headpiece gives the illusion of the faux hawk. Her hair is slicked down on the sides. We get the widows peak and poof at the top. It’s finished with a ponytail that leads into the goddess mane. There’s something here for fans of her many styles. Her face is framed beautifully. I’m forced to stan Russell Dauterman’s Storm in almost the same fashion as Simone Bianchi.
