    Rationalize in any fashion you wish -- I won't fault you one bit...
    Time travel is optional.
    "Off panel", is a laughable defense.
    If it wasn't printed... It didn't happen

    Characterization wise, I thought everybody acted in character except for Storm. Then again, every X-Men media appearance post the X-Men movies seem to be based on those so it's not surprising Storm gets short changed in that regards. The Singer effect indeed...

    Two wrongs don't make a right. They make an ass whoopin. Depends on who has the upper hand.

    For that matter, all of the X-Men have a right to make anti Semitic comments because they were viciously accosted by an insanely powerful member of the Jewish community
    I believe it's not wrong to punch the person who punched you first, especially on how Kitty used the term.

    And Kitty was the victim on that issue, not the guy.

    Can I see? Because it mentioned something about A New Sentinel I didn't see anything about Storm related

    I can see why it might appear problematic/strange to some but there is a Mary Jane variant to almost every book in July with her taking on the appearance of many different characters so I wouldn't read too much into it. Storm looks great though

    Oh that's the MJ variants!!! Lol.

    I'm like: Did they just make a white Storm?

    Agreed. She was clearly making an indirect comparison to how she as a black woman experiences hate in every day life in the US as opposed to back in her homeland where she was cherished and respected. Especially with Ororo's physical rarities of her hair and eyes, it is clear that N'Dare feared that her daughter would be ostrasized and persecuted.

    I remember when Pak mentioned her Mohawk made her "Silhouette" Identifiable, and I agree it did. However, I also feel her Diadem/Tiara/Headdress (that she is returning to wearing in X-Men Gold) also makes her "silhouette" identifiable as well. You see that and you know it's Storm.
