The reason they didnt touch upon that was because they wanted to focus on the central characters being Mutants... now that has been established they could also through in stigmas such as race and sexuality... But as Storm has been there from the begining it would be pointless to have her suddenly feel she is singled out because of race. So you need a new character

Hence Northstar.
