After doing a profile for the Ultimate version of Jean Grey, I decided to do one for Storm as well.
I've said many times over that I'm a fan of Marvel's pre-Ultimatum Ultimate universe and have enjoyed their re-interpretations of their most iconic characters. Given that Storm is my favourite Marvel character I definitely have high expectations and felt that she was one of the few characters who didn't meet them. Part of her (616) appeal was her confidence and strong moral convictions as well as her overall sophistication and badassery. Ultimate Storm was more vulnerable and a little more sarcastic. It didn't mesh with me.
Still, Ultimate Storm was rather fierce and I enjoyed her character arc. Her relationship to Hank/Beast was really touching. I also really enjoyed her various costumes and looks that she sported in the Ultimate X-Men title. She certainly lived up to the meaning of her name Ororo.
Of course, those who play video games will recognize the first outfit she's wearing here from both X-Men Legends games as well as from the first Marvel Legends game. Naturally, since I couldn't decide which Ultimate Storm look to go for I opted to go for TWO of them.
You'll all have to tell me which you prefer and why.
