Whoever created this new Storm icon for the game Marvel Future Fight will get fired. The disrespect... what is really wrong with you? Did you do any research into the character ? Fire them please. Obviously incompetent because they clearly did no research. https://t.co/015kAgRF2y— KRISTIΔNCLOUD (@Kristian_Cloud) September 1, 2020

So @Marvel allowed you all to literally whitewash #Storm and anger her fanbase with this crap? SMH Ridiculous to not think at all on the character accuracy of an iconic Marvel Black Super Hero. #BlackSuperHeroes Am I surprised, nope. pic.twitter.com/6I8ACCLydA— REDinFamy 👸🏾🎮 🎥 LYFE (@REDinFamy) September 1, 2020
