Also, the female lead is almost always the male lead's love interest. Let's not even get into the fact that Jean gets an "origin" flashback, her own storyline, multiple love interests, multiple musical themes/cues in the soundtrack, and interactions/connections to all the major characters in the film.
I think I have always disagreed with you on this point. But this time I concede. I've finally seen the light and stopped blinding myself. Storm's character wasn't really the lead in any of the movies. The only reason she was in X3 was because she was played by Halle Berry who was very popular back then.
