like all the x-men, storm has some super crazy mutant abilities. actually, of all the crazy mutant abilities, storm’s is my favorite. if you’re not wise to the comics, storm can control the weather. she’ll unleash a tornado on your ass right quick or fry you up right nice with some lightning. now, in the comics she had a lot of different get-ups but i most remember the one from the tv show, that white leather jumpsuit thing with the crazy cape. unfortunately, fall 2010 was very low on white leather jumpsuits so these will have to do. enjoy kids.

penelope had a pretty tough break in greek mythology. her beloved husband left to fight in troy just after their son telemachus was born. after that was over, odysseus was punished by poseiden to wander the seas. while he was busy trying to find his way home, it was left to penelope to run their kingdom in ithaca. she did a damn good job and managed to fend off suitors and would usurpers. penelope never gave up hope that odysseus would return and trust, when he did…he and penelope kicked some ass. give it up for penelope. she’s awesome.

catherine earnshaw was quite the tortured soul, much like all the other characters in wuthering heights. her childhood was happy enough and she formed a close relationship with her foster brother, heathcliff. the two had some good times until fate took catherine to thruscross grange. after spying on the fancy home with heathcliff, a dog attacked catherine and she stayed at the grange where she was educated on how to ‘be a lady’. this education forever changed her but heathcliff remained devoted to her. long story short, she marries a rich man (from thruscross of course), heathcliff disappears, comes back, catherine’s love for heathcliff drives her insane, she dies, haunts everybody in the world and heathcliff dies. hooray!

although she headlines in the odyssey, circe is a common figure in greek mythology. she wasn’t exactly up their with the olympians but she’s still a member of the club. her father was the sun god and mother was some sort of sea dwelling deity…somewhere between a god and a nymph. circe made her home in the clearing of a forest on an island, she spent her days turning enemies into animals, fun. upon the warning of his men and the foresight of hermes, odysseus was able to outsmart her and seek refuge at her mansion. taking into account she’s a witch and greek, i think it’s safe to say you’d see some draping and some crazy in her wardrobe.
