The delightful Maya Glick, like so many others, believes that a female superhero could carry her own movie. Her ideal character that could is the X-Man Storm. What's different about the X-Men from other superheroes is that they aren't really superheroes. They were born with a mutated gene; they are supposedly the next evolutionary step. Other heroes are aliens or turned into superheroes from freak accidents. Mutants must learn to control their powers from puberty. Their call for heroism comes from the defense of their own safety as well as protecting others from mutants would would see harm to humans, or "flatscans". Storm is the epitome of the dream that humans and mutants can work together.
