Characters of Color – Storm

 

Ah the legendary X-Men, a group devoted to the peaceful understanding between Mutants (or Homo Superiors – really…) and normal humans; while at the same time protect the world from evil Mutants who misuse their powers. The group has changed in many ways since its origins but the face of the X-Men still remain strong – and Storm is one member you could never forget. Her real name is Ororo Idaqi T’Challa and she was orphaned after her parents died in a plane crash. Storm who had to become a thief to survive until met (or rather trying to pickpocket) a 20 something Charles Xavier. He stopped her with his abilities but didn’t relive himself (or her at that matter) as a mutant until years later where circumstances forced Xavier to recruit mutants to save the Original X-Men (Cyclops, Angel, Havok, Iceman, Marvel Girl/Jean Grey and Polaris).The rest was history; Ororo got the name Storm (because of her abilities – which I’ll explain in a minute) and within the group she gained a new family, a life, and through them a future as the Queen of Wakanda married to Black Panther (another cool character of color). As one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel universe, Storm has the ability to control the weather (tornados, snow storms, earthquakes, etc.) but choose to use her massive abilities to defend people. Over time Storm has led the X-Men herself against Juggernaut, Magneto, and freaken Dracula! Was considered (and almost made into) a Goddess in many parts of the world and thanks her marriage with Black Panther (a non-mutant mind you) she was considered the most important mutant alive because if there was an example of mutants co-existing with humans their marriage is it. So that’s Storm, all powerful, goddess, queen of an extremely advanced country, the virtual face of the X-Men, and the single hope for unity for all of mankind.
