Most of those are pretty good, except Maya shouldn’t be associated with anything to do with “Storm”. You defeat the Storm. You make the Storm irrelevant. You aren’t the Storm.

Also, Parker shouldn’t be around anything iron. She sheds too many tears. She cries about every call that doesn’t go her way. She cried about her Team USA playing time. She even gets all up in her feels about a ring ceremony. All those tears hitting iron would just lead to pervasive rust.

Maybe Candace Parker should be Storm. Wherever Parker goes there is a 95% chance of precipitation. Crying or Very sad

Cannot love this any more than I already do. Really clever.

Clever concept, but I feel like they may have missed the mark on most of the comparisons. I don't know enough about the comic 'verses to re-pick everyone, but I'm thinking Clarendon for Storm (leadership, bitchin' hair), and Moore for Monica Rambeau (have ALL the superpowers).

(also, re-reading the description for Shuri... wouldn't going with Chiney, the younger sister, have made more sense?)

They were going for star/elite players. Clarendon does not qualify.

Wow, how many people are familiar with Marvel comic book characters, the NBA and the WNBA? Not me, but if they were going for physical look-alikes, some of the pictures are good matches.
