"I summon the power of the artic winds!"
"You don't know the power of the elements!"
"Winds! Cold! Storms! Rains! Deliver us from evil!"
Or worse yet:
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.
Hahaha The Animated Series is definitely not considered "Live Action"

The difference was that Anna had a role that was meaningful and so she was loved. Halle had a role that was lame AND meaningless and so she was sent to burn at the stake.
Just curious, in which scenes did you think Anna overacted as Rogue?
