 Well, isn't that just like a woman.

Earth goddess, X-men Leader, Morlock champion, rebel punk, and master thief......but we all know what really matters.

"You can tell Michael Collins that my hair is completely natural."
"This is NOT  a weave!"

Please , let that character be a skrull. I call on the goddess of comics and the saint of fangirls- let that character be a skrull...

Seriously I had a cashier in Walmart grab at my hair and ask me if it was real or a weave. It happens all the time, and I think the realistic human touches are necessary. POC fans like to see some of their cultural reality in characters that look like them. Marvel shouldn't only cater to one section of the fanbase.

Yeah, reading the comments I think it's actually pretty cool, putting something in for storm that (from the comments it looks like) a lot of POC relate to, and that non-POC don't really experience (I certainly haven't, although I have tried a weave or two! Looked kinda hideous on my thin anglo hair though XD ).

That being said, it'd be nice if there were more POCs in the comics so that storm wouldn't need to be the vehicle for this particular bit. I'm not sure if it's OC, but I think it's a little strange that someone would think white hair was a weave (I have never seen that color done, or even offered!), especially when they run around women with hair that long ALL THE TIME (it certainly seems more superhero females have hair down to their butts than don't)!
