It's not wrong for me to want an African Storm and Russian Colossus, and if a recast is the only way to get that then I don't mind.
Storm, was not changed from African to African-American. Storm is not African she has always been African-American. She was born in Harlem I believe. However she was brought up in Egypt and then spent her late teenage years in Kenya before being recruited by Charles Xavier.
