Real Name: Ororo Iqadi T'Challa, née Munroe
Powers: Able to control all parts of the weather, as well as partial invisibility. She can breathe under water, manipulate any form of air, even bringing it out of someones lungs. Storm has shown to be sensitive to the dynamics of the natural world, and her psionic powers over weather are affected by her emotions. One consequence of this connection to nature is that she often suppresses extreme feelings to prevent her emotional state from resulting in violent weather. With her ancestors being of a witches decent, such giving the mutant her white hair, blue eyes, and powerful magical potential. However, such resources have yet to be touched. She is also skilled in being a thief along side wielding a knife.
Place of Birth: New York City, as the child of Kenyan tribal princess N’Dare and American photographer David Munroe.
History: Ororo's mother, N'Dare, is the princess of a tribe in Kenya and the descendant of a long line of African witch-priestesses with white hair, blue eyes, and a natural gift for sorcery. N'Dare falls in love with and marries American photojournalist David Munroe. They move to Harlem in uptown New York City, where she becomes pregnant with Ororo and bears her, and then to Egypt during the Suez Crisis, where they are killed in a botched aircraft attack and leave six-year-old Ororo as an orphan. There, her violent claustrophobia is also established as a result of being buried under tons of rubble after that attack. She then becomes a skilled thief in Cairo under the benign Achmed el-Gibar and wanders into the Serengeti as a young woman. There, she is worshiped as a goddess before being recruited by Professor X for the X-Men.
Professor X, had already met her as a child in Cairo. As Ororo grows up on the streets and becomes a proficient thief under the tutelage of master thief Achmed el-Gibar, one of her most notable victims was Charles Francis Xavier, later Professor X. He is able to use his mental powers to temporarily prevent her escape and recognizes the potential in her. However, when Xavier is attacked mentally by Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King, the two men are preoccupied enough with their battle to allow the girl to escape. Both Xavier and the Shadow King recognize Storm as the young girl later.
After many years of working within X-Men and earning her rank, learning from her comrades around her and establishing a home in their mansion, she is given a rude awakening when her husband, Black Panther, is killed. This of course upsets her, however not enough for her to leave her home, or to be unbalanced from her normal calm and assured ways. Soon after, one of her closest friends, and fatherly-figure, Professor X, is killed. Much to her dismay, he leaves Magneto in charge. Stepping up to where she knows he would like her to be, she now leads the X-Men with him, her motherly side showing more than usual as the Mutants are forced to flee their home and head toward more (-assured, calm-) lands to better be prepared for the war that is sure to start out. Now under the new safe-house in California, she strives everyday to assure that every Mutant under her watch is well protected, and given everything they need to survive and prosper.
