- "This one's for Diane, because she loves Ulty Scott, and because she loves Storm (and because she beta read it). Ultimate Storm is a different girl from her traditional goddess self. I liked the old Storm, but like the new one, too. The biggest difference is Ultimate Storm's sass. Ultimate Scott can be a wise-cracker, as well, but I'm maintaining his canon shyness. Incidently, and while I write movie-Scott's eyes as blue because Marsden's are, comics-Scott's eyes are brown. Ororo's are supposed to be blue, but in Ultimate, they're gold-tan. As for Scott's vocabulary and would he really know a word like 'oxymoron' consider, folks. This is a guy who, in the midst of a heated argument with Xavier, pulled out 'monosyllabic.' He's shown, too, in a couple other places, that he has a good vocabulary. If you think Storm wouldn't comment on Jean's skin color, remember she does just that in issue #4 regarding the president's daughter."
