    I'm not quite digging how the author of this article seems to be reducing the importance of character all down to labels, as if the diversity of thought, hopes, and dreams of the character, which the inspiration for can come from anywhere and should be given a chance for that, and how that's communicated to the audience. I feel that just as the audience shouldn't judge by labels, they should also learn to research more about the world around them and the responsibilities that come with that.

    At any rate, as a comic reader, I'm just glad about Storm being a cool, interesting enough character to want to read more about. Haha.

    Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #7 Nov 1984
    "Berserker!" First appearance of Spider-Woman aka Julia Carpenter
    The heroes gathered on Battleworld by the Beyonder have discovered someone spying on them at their camp.
    When the Torch corners her, the mystery woman introduces herself as Spider-Woman.
    When the other heroes question how another human they haven't previously met could be on Battleworld, Mister Fantastic
    theorizes that since the Beyonder constructed Battleworld from planetary fragments a portion of Earth must have been used as well.
    Spider-Woman confirms this by explaining that the entire city of Denver has been brought to Battleworld.

    When she explains that she has come to help, she shows that she is more than capable by demonstrating her enhanced strength.
    The other heroes decide to trust her considering the fact that Dr. Doom has too much raw power to need to plant a spy among them.
    Suddenly they are attacked by a giant vehicle. When the Wrecker pops out of the porthole,
    he tosses out the seemingly deceased body of the Wasp before the villains take off.
    Some of the heroes try to chase after them but the vehicle is too fast.
    Quickly, She-Hulk picks up the Wasp's body and hands it over to their healer, the alien
    woman known as Zsaji, who tries to use her powers to revive the Wasp but to no avail.
    The Avengers are furious at the death of their comrade and are ready to rush off and get revenge when
    Captain America stops them and reminds them of the threat of Galactus who is still preparing to consume Battleworld.
    Convincing the others to stay their hand, they begin to plan their next course of action, all save for She-Hulk, who storms off on her own.

    Elsewhere, the X-Men retreat from the active volcanic region, and although they failed to stop a group of villains
    Xavier is impressed that they were able to send Titania, Molecule Man, Absorbing Man and Doctor Octopus packing.
    However, instead of returning to base, Xavier tells them to follow after
    their foes while he, Magneto, Storm and Nightcrawler rendezvous with them.
    Meanwhile, aboard the villains' craft, they care for the Molecule Man, who was seriously wounded by Wolverine's claws.
    Seeing Owen's condition from the monitors at Doombase, Volcana rushes to
    the Enchantress and asks the Asgardian sorceress to teleport her to Owen's side.
    When Volcana tells Amora that she is willing to do anything, the Enchantress teleports her away, satisfied by this offer.
    Volcana appears within the ship just as the two containing the X-Men and Magneto attack.
    During the course of the ensuing battle, Wolverine manages to chop off the
    Absorbing Man's arm while he is in the form of stone, but is burned badly by Volcana.

    Outnumbered and outgunned, Volcana calls a strategic withdrawal and uses her powers to cover their escape.

    At that moment aboard Galactus' ship, Doctor Doom continues to search
    for something that will allow him to defeat Galactus and the Beyonder.
    However, his plan to create a distraction by creating volcanic eruptions on the other side
    of Battleworld has backfired and has succeeded only in alerting Galactus to Doom's presence.
    Locating the intruder, Galactus uses his power to violently eject Doom from his ship.

    Back at Doombase, Doctor Octopus and his crew return and Volcana almost gets into a fight with the Enchantress.
    Titania stops her and warns the Enchantress that if Owen Reece dies she will rip her leg off and stuff it down her throat.
    Elsewhere, the Absorbing Man wonders what to do about his severed arm. By holding it in place where it was cut,
    he risks changing back to human form and is surprised when his gambit pays off and his arm reattaches itself.
    While down below in the dungeon the members of the Wrecking Crew lock the Lizard
    in a cell since he cannot be controlled after they seemingly killed the Wasp.
    Leaving the Lizard to rot, the Wrecking Crew are unaware that Klaw has been secretly watching the entire situation unfold.
    When Bulldozer retires to his room he notices that the wall has been ripped open from outside.
    Suddenly he is ambushed by She-Hulk, who begins to pummel on him for his part in the Wasp's death.
    Hearing the commotion, Titania enters the room and sees that the
    She-Hulk has defeated every member of the Wrecking Crew in a fight.
    She gets the jump on She-Hulk just as Doctor Octopus and Absorbing Man enter the fray.
    In yet another part of Doombase, the Enchantress laments over her current situation and pines for the love of Thor.
    Her thoughts are distracted by the return of Doctor Doom who has
    just barely survived being ejected from the Worldship of Galactus.
    He stumbles into his room and passes out, proclaiming that the battle is over.

    As the other villains are pummeling She-Hulk, the other heroes have discovered that she is missing.
    When Hulk and Hawkeye tell this to Cap and try to get him to mobilize a searching party, Captain America denies their request.
    When Cap sees that others want to go out and rescue her, he reminds them all that the stakes are too high to make decisions of the heart.
    Elsewhere in the village, Colossus is finally up and about after recovering from his injuries. He goes looking for Zsaji
    and finds her as she is leaving her hut. When she suddenly collapses he is there to catch her.
    Suddenly, Captain America is contacted by Professor X who tells him that he and his
    team can go after She-Hulk while the X-Men take their place watching over Galactus.
    With this bit of news, Captain America orders everyone to get ready to move out.
    NOTE: The Beyonder created Battleworld from pieces of hundreds of worlds from across the universe. The city of Denver was one of those pieces.

    The article was about representation. Your “diversity of thought” mutterings don’t change the straight, white maleness of it all, and frankly, it’s a flimsy defense. Representation matters.

    Uncanny X-Men #187 Nov 1984
    "Wraithkill!"
    Storm is walking away from Forge's home following the revelation that he invented the neutralizer weapon that stole her powers.
    As she flees, some Dire Wraiths who are seeking to destroy the weapon and its creator arrive at the huge tower
    and get past security by posing as FBI agents until one of their kind replicates the security guard.
    Hearing the racket, Storm turns and is attacked by a Dire Wraith that comes out of the huge downpour.
    Storm rushes back to Forge's office tower where she finds a gun among the
    scattered remains of the security guard and tries to use it to defend herself.
    Despite the shooting lessons that Wolverine previous had given her,
    it’s Forge's old friend Nazé who manages to kill the alien sorcerer with a shotgun.
    Nazé explains who he is and he and Storm attempt to contact Forge about the danger coming from above.

    This is too late because when Forge answers the phone, the Dire Wraiths enter his penthouse
    and use their mystical powers to create Deathwings to protect the building.

    Without power in the building, Storm and Nazé are forced to climb the elevator shaft where they are attacked by a Hellhound.
    It attacks Storm, but Nazé manages to shoot it dead. They are next attacked by another Wraith,
    whose mystical bolt breaks one of the elevator cables. As it madly springs upwards,
    Storm gets her foot caught on it and finds herself being pulled up to a potentially painful death.
    She manages to pull herself free and uses the cable to bring her up to
    the level where Forge lives, leaving Nazé to traverse the other floors alone.

    Storm exits onto the roof top patio to find that the Wraith's have cast a spell to turn the rain storm into a blizzard.
    Unable to resist the cold, Storm is forced back when she is attacked by another Hellhound and Wraith.
    As she locks them back outside, she is struck by a powerful mystical mental
    backlash caused, unknown to her, by Nazé being replaced by a Dire Wraith.

    This backlash is felt by Forge who has fled deeper into his home and activated the automated defenses.

    Storm catches up to Forge and the two face off against the Wraiths together.
    When one of the Wraiths attempt to trick Forge by casting an illusion spell to make it look like Storm,
    and Storm look like a Dire Wraith, Forge taps in his long neglected mystical talent to learn the truth and destroys the Wraith.
    They are reunited by "Nazé" who congratulates Forge for embracing his heritage once more.

    Just then, Rogue and Colossus smash through the roof and join up with Forge, Storm
    and the faux Nazé in mounting a counter attack on the Wraiths in Forge's home.
    As Storm, Colossus, and Rogue fight off the horde of Wraiths, Deathwings
    and Hellhounds, Forge rushes off to find some kind of distraction.

    Left to his own devices, the Wraith-Nazé goes to the Eagle's Nest inner sanctum and begins preparing a spell of evil intent.
    As the X-Men continue to fight against the Wraiths, Forge provides ample distraction by having his home's
    holographic simulator create virtual constructs of the Spaceknights ROM and Starshine, striking fear in the Wraiths.
    This allows the X-Men to easily wipe out the rest of the Dire Wraiths.
    However, before they can consider the battle over they are suddenly attacked by
    a manifestation of Shadowbeings that have been summoned by the Wraiths.

    X-Factor #46 Nov 1989
    Judgement War! Part 4 of 7. "Exchange!"
    Continued from last issue...

    The Beast is preparing a group of Rejects to participate in a mission to break into the Chosen's city to free his friend Archangel from the arena.
    As he trains young Nikoh how to fight, Zharkah watches with increased suspicion over Beast's true motives.
    Unaware that he is really a mutant from another world she begins to suspect that he might be a spy of the Chosen,
    and decides to see how he reacts when he sees the red haired woman that they have had prisoner
    since their last battle against the Chosen who is scheduled to be part of the coming prisoner exchange.

    Meanwhile, in the city of the Chosen, Iceman and Lev begin to drum up bets for Iceman's upcoming battle against the Archangel.
    Watching this in disguise is Princess Seera, who knows that Iceman is really from another world and is suffering amnesia.
    She wonders what she can do to free Archangel and continues to struggle
    with her conflicting emotions regarding her allegiances to the Chosen way of life.
    She also begins to wonder how much longer she can keep baby Christopher hidden from
    the Chosen Scientists and once more considers sneaking the child further out of the city.
    As she goes to check on the child and her robot Zee-Zee, she is unaware that she is being followed by
    a member of the Chosen who can fly, who watches her enter her hideout and leaves to report to the scientists.

    While at the hidden base of the Beginagains, Scott learns that his friend Beast
    is among the Rejects, while Archangel and Iceman are in the city of the Chosen.
    Looking through a monitoring crystal of the Beginagains, Scott learns that Marvel Girl
    has been a prisoner of the Rejects and is going to be part of a prisoner exchange.
    He demands instant action, however Dykon and the other Beginagains
    refuse to take any action just yet prompting Cyclops to go off alone.

    Back in the city of the Chosen, Archangel is brought before Lord Rask
    who attempts to force Warren to go about a training exercise.
    When Warren attempts to attack him, he is blasted back.
    Warren then takes a different approach, feigning weakness until Rask gets close enough
    for him to slice the nobleman's leg with his razor-sharp wings before being caged again.
    Archangel assures Rask that he will slay the Dueler that he will be forced to fight and survive if only for
    the satisfaction of eventually killing Rask, unaware that the "Dueler" he is to fight is his own comrade Iceman.

    In the Reject city, the prisoner exchange is about to get underway when
    Beast notices that the prisoner that they intend to exchange is Jean.

    When Beast tries to save her, Zharkah believes that her suspicion that Hank is a spy
    of the Chosen has been confirmed and she orders the other Rejects to capture Hank.
    Back at the Chosen's city, Seera nurses young Christopher when suddenly Rask and a number of soldiers burst into the building.
    They incapacitate Seera, Zee-Zee and Christopher, intending to punish Seera for
    breaking their laws even though she is considered the most perfect of their society.
    Christopher's telepathic cries cause Marvel Girl -- who has been in a catatonic state the whole time --

    to awaken and lash out.

    However, much to Beast's surprise, the dominant personality is not that of Jean, but of Madelyne Pryor.
    While Seera has to answer to why she has a child, the scientists tell her that she will be punished for her crimes.
    Rask however, having used his wealth and bargaining on Archangel's coming battle to net him another
    handsome sum of money to buy him favor tries to get Seera to ally with him to avoid any trouble.
    Seera, finally making a decision that their way of life refuses, knowing full well that there will be harsh consequences coming her way.

    While outside the Beginagains base, Cyclops is stopped by Dykon and other
    Beginagains who wish to help him storm the Chosen's city to free his friends.
    However they point out that they will have to pass around the Celestial known
    as Gammenon who has returned to the planet and is blocking their direct path.
    As Scott calls out to Jean, telling her that he is coming,
    it is Madelyne who hears this and is amused that her estranged husband would be coming.
    In deep space, X-Factor's Ship is still a prisoner of the Celestials and once more probing it's data banks to learn it's true origins,
    learns that it wasn't created by Apocalypse at all, but by the Celestials many centuries ago.
    Finally, back in the Chosen's city, Seera is given back her robot Zee-Zee whom she is horrified
    to find has been reporgramed to have her own independent thinking culled from her data banks.
    When Seera tries to lash out against the scientist who has done this to her childhood caretaker, she is forced back.
    As she recovers from the feedback of her powers she vows that no matter what she will free the Archangel
    and allow him to get his vengeance against the Chosen even if it means the end of her civilization in the process.

    Talking Happy Birthday Chris Claremont!!!

    Uncanny X-Men #251 Nov 1989
    "Fever Dream!"
    Wolverine, beaten and bruised, hangs from a wooden X outside the X-Men's base camp.
    Donald Pierce, Wolverine's captor, continues to torment the shackled Wolverine, who begins to hallucinate.
    In his delusions, in actuality one of Gateway's "Dreamtimes", Wolverine witnesses the past.
    He watches the X-Men return from their trip to the Savage Land.
    Next, he is visited by phantoms of various acquaintances,

    both friends and foes.
    He sees his own return to town, and his subsequent capture.
    Again, his vision returns to the arrival of the four X-Men from the Savage Land.
    As the Reavers approach the X-Men's position to attack, Psylocke opens the Siege Perilous
    and telepathically cajoles the X-Men to enter. Arriving too late, Pierce is furious at the loss of his prey.
    Back to reality and the present, the town comes under the fury of a powerful storm that seems to be encircling the whole globe.


    While the Reavers wait out the tempest inside, Jubilee summons the courage to approach Wolverine.
    To her surprise, Wolverine frees himself from his X-shaped crucifix.
    Lacking the strength to even stand, Wolverine asks the young Jubilee for help.

    Some of Marvel's more action-oriented heroines from the 1950s.
