“Whadaya mean we can’t call ourselves ‘X-women’?” (#230: Project 365 Sketches)

2013, Sun 18 Aug. I started this yesterday and might as well finish it. After Wolverine, Storm is my next favourite X-men member. The Marvel characters were created at a time when political-correctness was probably not part of the lexicon. I imagined Storm kicking up a fuss over the male gender used for the team name. And when told that the term ‘men’ was meant as a generic phrase, she might have argued that the team adopt the same principle using the word ‘women’ too. Heh.
