Why choose black or white for Storm?

The Marvel United Storm mini uses the 1992 outfit she used that Jim Lee designed.

One of the strangest things about this outfit is the way it was colored. Some readers thought it was black, others thought it was white- while a third group decided on a middle ground by saying the fabric was metallic silver.

The toy line at the time decided to hedge their bets by making three different colors for her action figures.

But since I’m painting these X-Men in comic book style, I can actually simulate the comic aft itself.

To be fair, I was influenced a bit by some of the later colorists’ take on the outfit.
