EPISODE DESCRIPTION

At a time when many comics fans are clamoring for more gender and race representation in superhero comics, one character has been the benchmark for strong women heroes of color for decades. And the X-Men's Storm is currently receiving a bit of a creative renaissance with Marvel recently launching her first ever solo series.

On the latest episode of Hard N.O.C. Life, guest host Shawn Taylor (@reallovepunk) discusses the importance of the character with an all-star panel: Storm writer Greg Pak (@gregpak), actress Maya Glick (@MayaSokora) -- creator of the Kickstarted Storm fan film Rain, and Storm superfan Jamie Broadnax of @BlackGirlNerds.

Topics covered on the show include:

Why Storm is such an vital character and how she brought Jamie and Maya to comics
How Storm brought forth Shawn's first "danger erection"
The politics of Storm's mohawk and black hair
Why Storm has been so poorly served in the live action X-Men
movies
The demographics of movie audiences and how that will or will not be reflected in Hollywood
How the first issue of the Storm ongoing series finally gets Storm right
Storm's love life (Forge, Wolverine, Black Panther) get thoroughly discussed
Whether comics are myths or soap operas or a bit of both
What led Maya to create the Rain short film
