That was two sentences, two sentences could’ve given Ororo the respect she deserves on this topic, in particular. You really can’t say that’s asking for too much when Cyclops got a paragraph or two.

    As to why mention anything about her at all, I don’t really understand your question? Why mention anyone on that list? Because it correlates to the topic of discussion.
    At first I thought it was a reach until I saw they specifically referenced MLK and used that as the basis for the article, so yeah you are right. Its in poor tatste

Yeah itís upsetting to me for sure. I usually hold my tongue but this just seemed wildly inappropriate. Not looking to take shine away from anyone else. Just give Storm what she deserves at least in this instance, damnit! Lol
    Well, this would be the perfect opportunity by the X-people to play up Storm on MLK Day but they've marginalized her for so long, they just don't have anything to say about her at all except "we have big plans for her."

    And that pretty much is a blow off.

    I wish it wasn’t so but you guys are both right. Just a shame tbh. Another opportunity to give credence where it’s due to one of your unquestionably most iconic characters and you just waste it. My minds having a hard time grasping how they could be so tone deaf even on a day such as today.

    I don't think more "light" needs to be shed.
    I think the problem is why bring up the particular skills about any X-leader without going into details? And if you're going to give specifics about one and give some vague answer about the other, it undoubted will raise questions and cause fans to react. Especially in the context of MLK Day.

    Storm is known across the entire planet as one of the GREATEST leaders of the X-Men!
    When people are asked about the X-Men or the franchise in general, Storm is one of the first and most popular characters to be mentioned. Nothing will ever take that away from her!

    lmfao bish I love you because you are not afraid to say what everyone else is thinking! your one post got this thread lit all the way up and it does because what you said is absolute fact. the article didnt need to be storm centric but if your article is a quote one quote tribute or in honor of mlk day you would think the marvel team would have a little bit more to say about their most popular black character. again diversity is so very important because I'm sure crackshot didnt think anything of not including ororo but I think someone of color specifically a black person would have had given us a different take on leadership within the xlore in honor of mlk.

    and yes I love our twitter family too. no mods to ban you or delete posts for silly reasons!!! and I can let my hair down and just have fun!! you're the beat sis. lol


    oan ya'll posting too fast for me to respond!! I love it

    It clearly wasn't that sort of article/interview...based off of the questions chosen and the answers given.

    But somehow leadership skills were brought up along with Storm. Someone made a comment that some people found lacking.

    You can't blame people for not liking the response.

    Can anyone find yet original tweet that they drew the questions from? Because according to this man, there were actually a lot of questions about Storm that just went ignored. Not as was insinuated that there weren’t enough questions about her.
