But those stories were WAY too out there, so I'm definitely not holding my breath.
Cassandra Nova was a great villain and one of the only new villains introduced in the last decade (or two) that remains memorable. You're right though that it will never be portrayed in a movie. The movie has to focus on villains that have something to do with human/mutant conflicts and not just mutant sibling stuff (even if it results in some of the former).
Come to think of it, Morrison also made Emma a bona fide X-man... and probably the only meaningful addition to the team since the 90s. And people still criticize his advancement of X-Men lore...
