X-Men fans petition Marvel to cast Dominique Jackson as Storm and she's thrilled: 'Thank you all 4 making my day'

After the box office bomb Dark Phoenix effectively ended the X-Men film franchise as we knew it last year, Marvel's mutant gang in Professor Xavier's villa is at a break when Marvel Studios architect Kevin Feige thinks about how he into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. That didn't stop fans from imagining how characters like Wolverine, Rogue, and Mystique could return, and more importantly, who should play them.
A new petition from Change.org has a popular point: pose star and transgender activist Dominique Jackson as black weather master Storm. "Fans of the X-Men's Storm have finally deserved to see an on-screen version of her that matches the strong black women guide we grew up with from the comics," the petition says, the 2,000 signatures and attracted counts. And Jackson himself is ready to adapt. "Thank you to all 4 who made my day," the actress wrote on Instagram. "I've always viewed Storm as a representation of my truth!"
Storm was previously featured on the screen by Halle Berry in the original X-Men trilogy and in the Days of Future Past 2014, with Alexandra Shipp taking over as the younger version of the character in X-Men: Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix. In both cases, however, fans agreed that the character never got the window that it deserved. "If there was anyone who could fill Storm's cloak, it would be Ms. Jackson," argues the Change.org petition, citing a heroic backstory that includes escaping from her home in Trinidad and Tobago to escape the persecution because of her Transgender, and to find a new family in New York's ballroom scene depicted on FX's pose. "Ms. Jackson's journey has all the prerequisites for real X-Men, compassion, nerve and leadership."
Twitter didn't need any additional persuasion.

For his part, Jackson is simply honored to be nominated for the role, even if Marvel doesn't call. "It's not even a question of whether Marvel sees this, but just knowing that you are valued is important and makes us all feel human and respected as part of the community and society!" She wrote on Instagram. "So I'm begging you, if you elevate and empower me, you should elevate and empower those around you who worry every day whether it could be their last."
