All right so. Straight up.
There’s no reason that Ororo already isn’t one. The fact that it’s never been confirmed in canon ain’t shit to me.
So what constitutes an Omega-Level Mutant? Limitless power?
Sorry I don’t have receipts with me; this shit is from memory.
We know that Jean Grey (and a majority of her genetic offspring) is an Omega-Level mutant. Her telepathic abilities can basically reach any corner of the globe, while her telekinesis can affect objects on a molecular level. She’s also served as host to the Phoenix Force, who, up until quite recently (with the Phoenix Five arc), only chose Omega-Level mutants as her host.
Apparently, Franklin Richards is an Omega-Level mutant. The kid created another Earth identical to 616.
Mr. M is an Omega-Level mutant. Didn’t he turn a butterfly into a pterodactyl one time?
Fricken Iceman has been confirmed as an Omega-Level mutant. Supposedly he hasn’t tapped into his full potential (or from the last of what I read of him), but yeah, here we are.
Now let’s talk about Ororo.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose whose winds can carry her past high-speeding jets.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose lightning has affected heavy-hitting opponents the likes of Rogue, Blob, Colossus, and Red Hulk.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can affect weather-related energy patterns on a molecular level such that she has taken Norrin Radd in a duel.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who wielded her own facsimile of Thor’s Mjolnir.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over pressure is so precise that she has: deflected falling debris, created a buffer inside a noisy club so she and Callisto can have a quiet conversation, made a building explode from the INSIDE, and even created a dome to contain the explosion of a bomb described as a “baby nuke”.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter all forms of currents; including those of the ocean.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, at one point, almost took out the entire population of Earth (humanoid and saurian) by creating the next Ice Age.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over air is on some Aang/Tenzin/Zaheer level shit that she can and has: kept buildings in tact when separating it from its foundation when lifting it with her winds, preventing any air from entering or leaving a man’s lungs, and increased the air pressure in one’s inner ears to give her the upper hand in a fight.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter her perceptions such that she can see the world in multi-colored forms of energy; even allowing her to see the electric discharges that the brain gives off to the central nervous system, giving her the advantage in hand-to-hand combat.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who took on an army of government-sanctioned sentinels (and NO, I’m not talking about Halle Berry).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who literally blessed the rains down in Africa.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who created an EMP to take out Cyborg/Clone Thor during Civil War.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose brain gives off powerful electromagnetic discharges such that even telepaths the likes of Jean Grey, Charles Xavier, and Amahl Farouk have a difficult time reading her.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who served as a host to the cosmic entity, Eternity, such that Doctor Strange can perform a surgery on the celestial being.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, in the past, been limited by her physical sense of body and claustrophobia; BUT who has now showing signs of overcoming all of that.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, one time, undid the work of a mystical being by dispersing his energy.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can conjure up an outfit with a bolt of lightning (see also: unstable molecules).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can FEEL when water evaporates into the air.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can sense aircrafts cutting through the atmosphere.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, essentially, is IMMUNE to all that shit.
And how’s about them alternate realities?
Ororo Munroe became Wonder Woman
Ororo Munroe became host to the Phoenix Force.
Ororo Munroe created an atmospherically perfect city for her to live in; a metropolitan I might add.
Since we’re talking about skill sets.
Ororo Munroe has bested Cyclops and Callisto WITHOUT her powers for a leadership position.
Ororo Munroe has held multiple dignitary statuses.
Ororo Munroe is the ONLY person to serve on the X-Men, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four (SUCK IT WOLVERINE).
You asked me if Ororo could BECOME an Omega-Level mutant. If this isn’t evidence enough of her already being an Omega-Level mutant (again, just SHORT of it being CONFIRMED in canon), then I don’t know what is.
People keep thinking Ororo was given the namesake of Storm ‘cause it’s a reflection of her weather-manipulating abilities. Well, that’s part of the reason. Ororo Munroe was given that namesake because that’s what she took the world by.
i love nicki minaj and janelle monae because their aesthetics are so far removed from one another but they both actively attempt to defy traditional standards of beauty in their own completely different ways
i think nicki goes “hyper-feminine” (see: Barbie) and challenges traditional standards of beauty by being LOUD in her femininity in both her demeanor and her appearance. yes she likes pink but not only does she like pink she FUCKING LOVES PINK. furthermore, i think she enjoys appropriating male symbols of power or traditionally masculine clothes and “feminizing” them by (flawlessly) incorporating them into her own outfits. or she makes her feminine outfits threatening by wearing spikes and sharp edges
janelle’s aesthetic is more focused around blurring the lines of traditional femininity and masculinity. janelle’s occasional forays into more traditional standards of beauty for women only make it more obvious that she is saying “I am the one who chooses how I look. Today I choose to look this way for myself and tomorrow I may choose to look differently.” she does things like wear a formal white button up, but with a ribbon neck tie. or strappy heels and an all-white suit with a gorgeous necklace. or a suit-inspired dress with a lot of cleavage. she doesn’t even give a shit about gendered clothing and just wears whatever the fuck she wants
i also love love love that they defy white-centric ideas of beauty. nicki has an alter-ego named barbie… what defies white-centric ideas of beauty more than a woman from trinidad calling herself barbie when mattel refuses to release a doll with brown skin called barbie and instead making her one of “barbie’s friends”?
and janelle is constantly constantly using natural black hair and i think she is constantly paying omage to african and african american culture in her aesthetic… i would be shocked if her cover for archandroid wasnt inspired by queen nefertiti
anyways i just love how these ladies dress themselves because i see it as a big middle finger to traditional ideas of how black women should look and i think that’s just great bye
IF YOURE EVER SCARED TO TALK TO ME DONT BE BECAUSE ODDS ARE THAT IF YOU MESSAGE ME ILL SQUEAL LIKE A LITTLE GIRL AND TAKE 10 MINUTES TO DECIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE THING TO SAY TO YOU BECAUSE YOURE AWESOME AND I LOVE YOU
whenever somebody says like “so what did you do today?” just look off into the distance and say “the right thing”
Then stare right into their eyes and say, “I hope”
this thing w ferguson is making me wonder how many of the historical riots that happened in the 20th century they teach you about in school were actually ‘riots’ ??
I’m scared that in 40 years, I’m gonna have to tell my child what really happened because their textbooks will be full of lies
everyone on this website is slowly going back to school one by one its kinda like a horror movie but worse
