"You don't know the power of the elements!"

"Winds! Cold! Storms! Rains! Deliver us from evil!"

Or worse yet:

"Be goooonnnnnee!"

Never gonna happen. And I think fans compare movie Storm to her animated counterparts, not realizing that audiences would break into peals of laughter if Halle Berry tried saying some s*** like that in a movie.
I hope we don't get any of that stuff. In the first episode of the 90s series, even Rogue tells her to 'lighten up on the speeches, sugah.' I agree.

I even think those lightning-styled earrings might be a bit hokey on screen. Much like the booty shorts and thigh-high boots of the comics version.

Some of that stuff from the comics and cartoons just wouldn't work. The wimple-like headgear worn by Gambit and Jean is another no-no.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
