Manic Monday: Storm
I love X-men. I used to try to wake up early on Saturday mornings to watch the cartoon when I was a kid. I love the movies as an adult. While Storm is not my favorite character on the movies, she was absolutely my favorite in the cartoon. How cool did she look when her eyes turned all white? And with that came lightning or wind, rain or snow, tornadoes or hurricanes. She was the coolest. I distinctly remember playing X-men as a child. I was always controlling the weather because I was Storm. I was sure that my eyes turned white, giving those I was playing with warning that the weather was about to turn nasty. (Of course, they never did notice that part... I always had to inform them that my eyes had just turned white and that now their hair is standing on end because of the lightning that was gathering around us...) I loved being Storm.
