X-Men - Storm, The Evo Look by Femmes-Fatales X-Men - Storm, The Evo Look by Femmes-Fatales
Storm bonus!

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*

I liked her as a teacher, though. Her character lends well to the "mentor" type. I don't think that her being a teacher was a huge reason for her less screentime - after all, Wolverine was given adequate time in X-Men Evo (a lot less than you would expect of Wolverine!) and it would have been nice if Storm got the same treatment, instead of pushing her into the background.

That said, I do agree. Her costume was pretty 90's for a cartoon that came out in the early 00's!

I wouldn't say Wolverine got "adequate" screentime. I think he was supporting for much of the series and it was noticeable when compared to the teen characters. That said, it's refreshing when Wolverine gets pushed into the background because he's shoved down our throat in EVERY X-Men adaptation since the '90s cartoon. While Storm's character can lend herself well to being a "mentor," it's easy to forget how global and big picture a person she is. She maintains larger goals and devoting herself to one school and one set of students is hard for a woman who is much more globally-inclined if you know what I mean.

Its less of an eye shore though. And look, next time they show her, based on how comics are now a days, they'll probably have her up front

That's doubtful. There have been five animated series based on the X-Men and the only series to portray her remotely close to the comics was the '90s series but she often devolved into a parody with her drag queen-like voice actress and bad '80s beauty queen hair. She's just such a great character and it's sad that she gets pushed into the background despite being so groundbreaking. We need less focus on the generic white characters and more focus on the multi-faceted diverse ethnic characters (like Storm and Psylocke).
