Having drawn all my favourite comic costumes of Storm's along with a few other iconic looks of hers from the 616 universe, I decided I also wanted to include some of the costumes she's worn either in alternate dimensions or in adaptations. Obviously, I'd have to include her look from "X-Men: Evolution."
The basic premise of "X-Men: Evolution" was promising and it exceeded the iconic '90s X-Men cartoon in many ways. Unfortunately, it continued the eye-roll worthy trend of really pushing Storm into the background and her status as one of the adult characters ensured very little development on her part. Given people's penchant for declaring comic book characters their favourite based solely on animated appearances, Storm's lack of popularity in comparison to Rogue and Nightcrawler is likely a side-effect of the constant push-back Storm has in animated shows and in the films. It just seems like most of these writers don't know how to write the fiercest X-Woman there's ever been, huh? It would have been cool if they'd made Storm into a college-age character who was essentially like that "cool older chick" the X-Men wanted to hang out with. After all, she can be pretty badass when written properly. Nevertheless, Storm was drawn beautifully on the show and, aside from Jean Grey, was easily the most physically attractive of the women on the show. Her costume was strangely '90s though... *shrugs*
