10 Superheroines who need their own movie
Debuted: "Giant-Size X-Men" #1 (1975)
Previous Movie or TV appearances: "X-Men," "X2: X-Men United," "X-Men: The Last Stand," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (deleted cameo), "X-Men: First Class" (cameo), "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends" (animated), "Wolverine and the X-Men" (animated), "X-Men" (animated), "X-Men: Evolution" (animated), "The Super Hero Squad Show" (animated), "Black Panther" (animated), "Marvel Anime," "X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men" (animated), "Spider-Man: The Animated Series," "Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow" (animated)
Why: Of all the female X-Men characters, Storm (nee Ororo Munroe) is probably the most obvious candidate for a solo spin-off film, with her high name recognition and appearance as a main team member in the original big-screen "X-Men" trilogy. With her ability to control the weather she's also got a highly-cinematic set of powers, not to mention a compelling history that, among other things, saw her living life as a thief in Cairo's back alleys and later being worshiped as a rain goddess by an African tribe. Oh yeah, she's also known as the Black Panther's main squeeze - and you know that would be one hell of a sexy couple. While Halle Berry's chances of starring in her own spinoff grow less and less likely by the day - by Hollywood's exacting age standards, the 46-year-old Oscar winner might as well be 90 at this point - there's always hope for a refresh with a younger actress I suppose.
