    This is a very poor hair choice for this woman’s hair. Her hair should be natual. It does not have to be an afro. I think a good choice would be locs. Locs can be both sexy and professional. The thin, miniature locs can simulate European women’s hairstyles even a ponytail. I also think she could be a little darker and her nose a little less European. When I first saw her, I thought she was Brazilian. She in no way looks “black” African unless she is mixed race.

    This is not a diss but she looks remarkably like Fairchild from “Gen-13.” They should at least alter the costume.

    That is Halle Berry’s face on someone else’s body – At least it’s better than, say, Kittwell race swapping her into another race in one of his stories and keeping her that way like creators at Marvel did with Asian-woman-but-realy-White-woman Psylocke.
