RAIN is the extraordinary new fan film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Ororo Munroe a.k.a. Storm.
In the X-Men comics, Storm is the daughter of a Kenyan princess. She is also a powerful mutant with the ability to control the elements themselves.
She is regal, intelligent, aristocratic, resilient, compassionate, beautiful, and FIERCE.
Unfortunately, the lackluster way her character has been written and depicted in the X-Men film franchise by FOX has long been a source of dissatisfaction and aggravation by fans of the character.
In the X-Men films, Storm is reduced to little more than window dressing - a grave disservice to such a rich, iconic character.
RAIN was birthed out of creator and star Maya Glick's frustration with those milquetoast cinematic depictions.
Glick decided to produce her own onscreen version of Storm that honors the heroine's dynamic and complex character.
I won't divulge any of the short film's plot because of spoilers. I just encourage you to watch and revel in RAIN ...
With RAIN, Glick has wildly succeeded in creating an onscreen depiction of Storm that is a worthy tribute to the character's power, presence, and strength.
Fans of the character will be glad RAIN has arrived.
