I dig the hell out of this. Daniel Thompson has put together this great piece imagining Lupita Nyong’o as X-Men’s Storm/Ororo Munroe. Last weekend, Lupita took home the “Best Supporting Actress” Oscar for her incredible performance as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years A Slave,’ and she’s undeniably been the darling of awards season with her grace, beauty, fashion sense, tremendous acceptance speeches and all around loveliness. While there’s been no word on what her next acting role will be, I can imagine her agent is staying pretty busy* (*manically busy!) considering the immense amount of love she’s received from fans and her peers alike.
