I dont think storm was meant to lead the mutant race. Thats a task that should be taken on by a mortal made of flesh and blood. Someone frail and consumed with fake revolutions like Cyclops or Kitty - they would be a perfect fit for such a "title."
NO! Storm was meant to be worshipped and praised as the All-Goddess she truly is. Her importance and impact on the world is one that shouldnt be limited to such a small sliver of time. Leaders will come go and new leaders will follow, but a Goddess is ETERNAL AND INFINITE. Mutants and men alike were made to bow before her excellence and beauty and most importantly HER POWER. Anything less is beneath her.
