But is that necessarily "ugliness"?

Anyway that could well have been an interesting juxtaposition, but I can't think of examples in X2 where Storm's bitterness and anger towards those who hate mutants is actually shown. To have her say it once in a conversation is pretty thin writing IMO.

Plus, she displayed pity towards Kelly in X1 where she stuck around him in his last few minutes. She admitted that she sometimes hated "normal people", but when he asked her why she said that it was because she was afraid of them (if I remember right). Again, I didn't really get any sense of anger or bitterness there.
