Dumbass Things You Shouldn't Do in the Marvel Universe, Number 140

In between exclamations of "Goddess!" and "By the bright lady!" and "Wolverine, get out of my underwear drawer!" Ororo Munroe has been heard to gossip to her closest friends that she don't want no scrub. A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from her, hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride, trying to holler at her. So before asking Ms. Munroe out on a date, it helps to know her likes and dislikes. Her turn-ons include walking or flying in the rain, Japanese thrillseekers, Modesty Blaise novels, mentoring teenage girls and African kings. Turn-offs include telephone booths, elevators, storage lockers, small caves and hall cupboards. But a kind word, a friendly smile, and a knowledge of what cable station you can find the Weather Channel on can go a long way towards charming her. On the other hand, never, never try to pick up the future Mrs. Black Panther like this:

That's right, Jimmie "J.J." Walker. I don't think you're ready for this jelly.

Oh sure, Storm...just rain on that poor man's parade. Actually, he's probably lucky she didn't use her lightning.
