Continuing on with more non-canon looks for Storm, here we have the costume from the X-Men film trilogy.
Played by Oscar winner Halle Berry, Storm is a long-time member of the X-Men in the film franchise. She's considerate and caring but is a passionate proponent for mutant rights. While she's normally soft-spoken, when she's threatened Storm becomes a fearsome and relentless warrior in battle. She's shown to have close friendships with Jean Grey and Beast as well as a growing kinship with Wolverine. In the later two films, she's also presented as a mentor for the younger mutants. Unfortunately, little else is known of Storm and she isn't given any major narratives. It's always been one of the glaring errors of the X-Men film franchise -- rather than focusing on the X-Men's two greatest leaders (Cyclops and Storm) it became a franchise almost entirely focused around Wolverine (who, let's face it, is best in a supporting capacity). Still, we have Halle Berry to thank for Storm being given what she was given. We know she pushed hard to have the producers and directors exhibit more of Storm's powers and give her a little more screentime.
In the film franchise, the X-Men wore matching costumes which were intended to be more realistic and covert. I was never all that crazy about the leather costumes but as I've gotten older I can appreciate them more especially after seeing how much structuring went into them. Halle's was fitted perfectly to her flawless figure and was structured to emphasize her curves. She was given a silver ribbing. Storm also had a cape. In the first film, unfortunately, it looked like a garbage bag. In each film, Storm was depicted with a different hairstyle. In the first, she had a plain long hairstyle with odd jagged bangs. In the second, she had a flipped hairstyle that curled above her shoulders (as depicted here). In the third, she wore a very short hairstyle that was layered and given grey lowlights. Unfortunately, these costumes were ultimately very impractical and were very constricting. Ah well.
