Which is why the “glass canon” argument gets brought up consistently.
    Very true but it’s also the consequence of the ”lightning lass” syndrome that usually affects untalented and unimaginative writers when they are given the chance to write Storm

    He is a glass canon as well, it's just that he uses EM forcefields much more consistently which makes it an in character trait in comparison to Storm who does so much less.
    I agree, w/ her powers Batroc is fodder to her but she isn't using them in the right way here, which is bad writing.

All 3 of them have roughly normal or perhaps just above average human physical durability outside of the things that their powers give them natural immunity to.

    Otherwise I can pretty much agree with your assessment, Spiderfan.
    Jean's TK molecular reassembly stuff and psionic form is why I think a bullet would not do her in.Mercury can provide details much better on Jean's TK.Otherwise she is a glass canon.
    Both Erik and Storm are glass canon's, and I'm sure there shields are on par w/ one another.The diff. as explained above is not their strength or reaction time(which I'm sure is on par), it's consistency in use of said Shields.

    Definitely safe to assume their contributions would have worked congruently. I only mentioned Erik specifically because we directly saw him infuse the iron into the core which we know contributes to the building of a magnetic field around a planet.

    I see what you’re saying in regards to Jean, especially if she is using her psionic form. I would think though that I depends on if the bullet puts her down before she can telekinetically atomize it/repair herself. Which, knowing how integral concentration is for psi powers, might be difficult with a hemorr*****g temple wound. Realistically as I believe you’re implying, neither of those 3 characters should have any concern over bullets/most projectiles in the first place.

    Considering she's going to be fighting a lot I hope Ewing dives into more of these type of defensives feats.



    Let it become a character trait for Storm to actually use her brain in combat.

    please. there is no way she should be able to be snipe punched or shot without using a shield (whether air, water, electrical,etc)

    She is one in the sense that if she recieves a strong physical hit to her body, which is still on par with normal humans in terms of durability, she will be in trouble. Like a Dark Souls boss where the trick is not to deal a lot of damage, but to get them on the ground, reach them and get their barrier down ... and avoid the counters and parries.

    Actualy she could make a pretty great bonus boss in a Sekiro style video game.

    I think the main point is that you don't hear characters like magneto and marvel girl classified as such. if ororo is they certainly should be as well.

    Oh good point. Nevermind then. Personaly i see the likes of Magneto, Jean Grey and Storm as "barriered glass cannons", but if the "shield" (magnetic sphere, TK barrier, wind/air/electirc barriers) ability disqualifies them from the glass cannon status i fail to see why Storm should be thrown in there.
