Goddess. Windrider. Queen. Leader. Storm has worn multiple hats during her existence; roles that have aided in her evolution as one of comics’ most significant and abiding heroes. Yet although Storm’s pop cultural significance is great, her characterization has seen glaring inconsistencies from comic book to screen. Fans of the '90s cartoons remember a majestic leader whose long winded monologues became part of her appeal, but fans of the films were subjected to an unimposing and rather useless version of the character.

Chris Sims: I was convinced that the Punisher franchise or Jean-Claude Van Damme's Street Fighter was going to win, but when we let our readers vote on which film series would be the next subject of ComicsAlliance's in-depth review series, the response was overwhelming: The X-Men won in a landslide victory with 56% of the vote -- presumably because our readers wanted to subject us to the ultimate horror that is X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

It's probably safe to say that most ComicsAlliance readers (and contributors for that matter) aren't like James Bond - in other words, we're not all British globetrotting super spies who regularly spit in Death's eye and consequently get the best looking girls and/or guys in the sack at the end of the day
