If you truly love Storm why would you not be happy at getting a Storm that was closer to the comic representation. Storm is a leader and a fighting badass. That's a good thing. It's a pity that the film didn't do more to make her a more accurate portrayal. They gave Hallle all that screen time but didn't give her anything to do. Such a waste.
We don't know what influence she had over the screenplay in X3. She was the last to sign on for that film so it's possible that screentime was a negotiation point. Since Storm is not integral to any story line in X3, they could have easily just given her more screentime without affecting the basic structure of the screenplay (like say, give her a pointless "You of all people know how quickly the weather can change" scene or a Eulogy scene, neither of which has any important purpose in the story).
