Yes, I remember. It's interesting how Storm fans often believe that the character is not cared about by this studio/director/franchise, etc., and yet, as you've pointed out, she's actually gotten more development than the vast majority of X-Men characters in this series--and has survived from one film to the next.

It was only a few short weeks ago that many of us were stricken with panic that Storm might not appear in Days Of Future Past.

Well, you already know how I feel about this. But it IS what we have to work with, unfortunately.
