Imagine if, instead of stonewalling them, she paid her band and they had kept successfully making music. Think about more albums like MISEDUCATION.  Or if she had built on her acting my opinion she would have been a major star, right there with Will Smith and Queen Latifah as hip hop artists who are bankable actors.  Instead she was separated from her young family and put in prison, which does no one any good. 

Well, 1/2 of it was her refusal to acknowledge her ghost writers, but let's not forget the other crucial piece of the puzzle...

Completed one master's degree & 1/2 finished with my second one. Should be marching again in the fall of 2016. (Damned fall-only internships...)

Speaking of wolverine, I just read the issue he died in (read, not bought). In those last panels of his death, guess which lady he was thinking of? Jean, not Storm. Boning Storm for months but couldn't spare her one panel of his flashback scenes before his death.

...that's cold as f*ck. Even I'm speechless, and y'all KNOW I always have something to say.

Inversely, being black and gay might make Storm more acceptable to the white mainstream.


I don't want them to make Storm gay either. I want to see more black male-female healthy, positive heterosexual romantic relationships in media.

This. I'm sick of the media telling me over and over that the only way to be desirable in successful stories is to be with a white man.

...and HEF can still be your favorite board.

Not with repeated spam posts. How many times do we have to say NOBODY GIVES A FUKK? And that was *before* the sh*tty sales. Now it's officially that nobody LITERALLY gives a f*ck, and none of these teal deer wall o' text posts are going to change that.

*right clicks, saves*

And don't underestimate stunts--Spider-girl lasted over a hundred issues because of a dedicated small pool of fans and a writer doing everything to keep the book from being canceled several times.  Sales were never great but the stunts kept the title running for years.

It's safe to say that this will not be happening here.

I have noticed these "new" blacks among women whom are in support of this. Oh well

They're the same new black women who think that Fitz and Olivia are true love, and wanted to marry Mexicans so their babies would have "good hurr". Pity them. They wouldn't know black love if it gave them a rimjob with jelly OR syrup. #tossedsaladman

Should Mr. Pak not honor the request, then he is inadvertently sending the message that there is a segment of... not just online Storm fans, but Pak fans that remain disgruntled because of his unwillingness to engage them.

Pak doesn't have to engage anybody if he doesn't want to. I don't engage half of the simps right here at HEF, and I wouldn't blame him for refusing to do so. He's not writing for us anyway.

So now Twitter is trying to save this raggedy piece of sh*t. Y'all know I had to go in, as I am taking great joy in watching this project tank. It's all over now, Baby Blue. If it makes it to 12 issues, it'll be a victory for new blacks everywhere.

What gives you that impression?  :)

Because the same chick who embarrassed Chris Claremont, crucified Jonathan Maberry and told Igor Kordey to kill himself is still here.

*edit* Storm is #148 on the Diamond charts. Lord, have mercy. I think even Klaws of the Panther did better than that.

I agree with Maxine. Storm is making Olivia Pope's pining for Fitz look emotionally distant.

She has literally - LITERALLY - pined more for her f*ck buddy in this one issue than she has pined over her ex-husband in her entire existence as a Marvel character. But this is the Storm they wanted - weak and crying over some white dude who wouldn't even claim her in the first place. They LOVE that sh*t.

So I got a chance to read #5, and I'll say this: anyone who is reading and enjoying this sh*t is a straight-off-the-market new black, still wrapped in plastic and with a shiny price tag on his or her back. I was actually laughing by the end. EVERY OTHER f*ckING PAGE has Storm dreaming about Wolverine. "Would Wolverine do this? Would Logan have done that? Did Logan wipe from front to back, or back to front? Oh, Logan, what were you thinking?" ARRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! It's not Doomwar bad, but it's damned close. Whereas Maberry (intentionally?) went out of his way to destroy the BP/Storm marriage and Aaron gleefully destroyed their friendship, Pak keeps to be going for extra credit to destroy Storm entirely.

This doesn't make any sense. Storm's been at the forefront of the X-men for how long? What un-tapped potential is there? We've seen time after time, EVERYTHING THERE IS to the character. Not just the "featz" that are constantly pointed out but her internal struggles. We've see it all, ad nauseum. And according to the book sales, it's tired.

Back in undergrad, I did this report on Paul Robeson, and how black folks had to turn their backs on him for some sh*t he was doing until he managed to get the lyrics changed to some song to some musical. (Vague, I know.) It wasn't like a protest, per se - they weren't trying to see the brotha starve or anything. It was more like a "Nah, we're good. Good luck with your niggerish performances." It got to the guy and he started refusing to sing the songs like they were written and started changing up some sh*t, and we came over and started to support the guy.

That's what the Uncle Rutogs of the world can't seem to grasp with what some of us are doing here. I don't wish ill will to Storm, but I'll never support bust-it bullsh*t because the character in question is black. I'd rather see Storm dead and gone than the way she's being portrayed now. Every flop issue is a victory as far as I'm concerned.

Aldis Hodge was my 1st pick, but this is still good.

Aldis was the only pic. I'm sorry, but this isn't a good pick to me. Why are American actors always being picked to play African roles? Even the BP cartoon had four American actors playing Ramonda, Storm, Shuri and the uncle, respectively.
