The actress who plays Valkyrie is Monae's real-life girlfriend.

Hmm. That might work. 

I've read that Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monae aren't actyally a couple, just pals. A shame. They're adorable together.

Maybe it's just because I want to see it, but in the
photo at the top of the article, she seems like she even
has a Byrne chin/jaw line!

It's more like it found me - totally unrelated to this thread, I was reading my Essential #1 and that panel popped out at me as being a close match to JM.

(And would that more illustrators could draw so "terribly" - I was also struck by how elegant a panel it was...)

  Janelle Monae is only 5 foot tall. Isn't Storm almost 6 foot tall?

I suppose she could stand and walk around in very tall shoes or boots that we never see, as Robert Downey Jr. did much of the time, or she could just be in the air all the time (not that that's especially in character for Storm).
