Overview Edit

Ororo Munroe is a young mutant who grew up as a thief on the streets of Cairo. When she turned fourteen, she realized that she could command the weather and bring lightning and rain down out of the sky. She was approached by Professor Charles Xavier who informed her that she was a mutant and invited to accompany him back to the United States where she would become a member of the superhero team known as the X-Men. Storm remained with the team for many years and even became the leader of the group as well as that of a band of mutant outcasts known as the Morlocks. She eventually married the costumed king of Wakanda named T'Challa, also known as the Black Panther.

Powers Edit

  • Weather control: Storm's mutant power is the ability to psionically manipualte as well as generate patterns of weather. Storm can control the pressure and flow of naturally existing weather systems, but can also generate effects of her own. This can range from something as simple as lowering the air pressure slightly around her body, or summoning gale-force rain storms that can irrigate an arid desert or inundate an entire city. Storm's power often works on an unconscious level and the localized effect may alter depending upon her mood.
  • Elemental control: Storm's ability to manipulate the elements is restricted to air. She can summon and direct gusts of wind of varying intensity, but can also disperse molecules of air, cauing the oxygen levels within an enclosed environment to become uncomfortably thin.
  • Electrokinesis: Storm can summon and direct the power of lightning itself. She can pull lightning down from the heavens, or she can generate it from her body and hurl bolts of lightning from her hands.
