    Storm's "white" costume was actually black., The 90s cartoon got it wrong. As designed by Jim Lee, it was supposed to be very shiny

    Shiny to the point of being white/silver? I mean, even XMA got it wrong as well as several Marvel games that feature that costume. If Lee wanted it to be black, it is an odd artistic choice to draw it like this;

    For all intents and purposes, the suit is white. That's how this version of costume has always been portrayed outside of the comics. Heck, even other artists drew it as silver

    I think y'all have to ask "Why do the characters dress like this?", especially when assuming things like Storm being in a group where the other students wear uniforms.

    Cyclops said it best in the first issue of Astonishing X-Men. They're superheroes and superheroes wear costumes. The only explanation needed is that each suit is specifically tailored to an individual character's powers

    That looks black to me.

    it was a tweak of her previous costume
    [​IMG]

    Back then the coloring process wasnt as sophisticated as it would eventually bcome as tech improved. Thats just how shiny black leather was portrayed and came across more white bc it was a full body suit as opposed to more revealing like her mohawk one

    [​IMG]

    Quite frankly, I think it looks better as originally intended being black with white accents than full on white that the cartoon incorrectly portrayed. They also colored Jean's costume wrong so there was precedence there

    Cartoon took a lot of liberties. I just wanna know when did Storm become a Sailor Soldier in order to transform like this.

    They would have had to come from different backgrounds and couldn't decide to coordinate beyond an 'X' pin/belt.
    Some joined the military.
    Some of them trained as gymnasts.
    Wolverine moonlighted as a pro-wrestler.
    Others stuck to their civies.
    Those of whom whose entire bodies get affected due to abilities would wear containment suits.

    Think they'll ever put Mystique in skulls and a white dress?

    Given the alternatives, this team and uniforms are really growing on me. Anyone have an alternative where girls like Storm and Rogue are in uniforms?

    She's been able to do that since forever I think. I remember her doing it in a X-MEN back up issue from the 70s in front of Jean Grey before.


    I think it's called Instant Costume Change trope.

    Yeah didn’t they say their costumes were made of unstable particles or something? Maybe that’s the FF.

    Someone on the xmen boards said Keiynan Lonsdale should play Iceman. That would be so perfect.

    I hope so, it’s such a lewk. Plus it’s the easiest to adapt straight from the comics right? Drop the scales, add a white cocktail dress and a bree van der kamp wig and off you go!

    I'm actually very interested in how the MCU pulls off Mystique's look. Will she just be a regular girl painted blue like the comics or will she have some sort of texture on her like the reptile scales from the Singerverse.

    Or something like this

    Also wonder how their interpretation of the body morphing will look like. One thing is for certain, she will hopefully wear clothes. No more walking around nude.

    I hope there are no scales at all this time. If they want to distinguish her from Fox's version, just do the comic version.

    I hope it'll be a while before Marvel has to address Mystique all together. FFS I need a new direction.

    I doubt she'll be nude, work for Magneto, and have zero relationship with Nightcrawler/Rogue, while being Xavier's sister.


    Sounds like a completely new character

    What are the chances that MCU Mystique will show any skin under Disney? Will she be completely covered up from the neck downwards and not even wear a dress, or even show a midriff?
