'''Storm''', a.k.a. Ororo Munroe, a weather-controlling mutant and one of the most famous members of the ComicBook/XMen. She first appeared in ''Giant-Size X-Men #1'' (May, 1975), created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Ororo is the descendant of an ancient line of African priestesses, all of whom have white hair, blue eyes, and the potential to wield magic. Her mother, N'dare, was an African princess who married American photojournalist David Munroe and moved with him to Manhattan, where Ororo was born. When Ororo was six months old, she and her parents moved to Cairo, Egypt. Five years later, during the Arab-Israeli conflict, a plane crashed into their home. Ororo's parents were killed, but she survived, buried under rubble near her mother's body. The resultant trauma left Ororo with severe claustrophobia that still affects her today.

* EastwardEndeavor: When the X-Men went to Japan for Logan and Mariko's wedding, Storm met Logan's ally [[ActionGirl Yukio]]. At the time, Storm was struggling with her repressed passions, unsure if she should drop her usual unemotive attitude. Yukio's daredevil behavior influenced her into nourishing her passions. The change led her to get a mohawk and become stronger than ever, particularly after getting depowered. She even got promoted to team leader for a long time. Finally, the considerable amounts of ShipTease she had with Yukio unlocked some of her more personal wishes. A later annual showed her heart's desire was to live a carefree life in Tokyo with Yukio.

Storm has always played a very prominent role in the world of the X-Men. In her early days after her first appearance she was a major character in the new team of X-Men following the relaunch of the mutant team in 1975. Then perhaps her definitive role was as leader of the X-Men after Professor X went into space with the Starjammers for a time. She led the team through many huge challenges: the Mutant Massacre and ''ComicBook/{{Inferno}}'' to name but two, even through a long period when she had lost her powers. Following the return of Professor X, the X-Men were split into two teams, Gold (led by Storm) and Blue (led by Cyclops). During that period her closest male relationship was with Forge, however that somehow never fully matured and ended with the two breaking up. Following the discovery of Destiny's diaries, Storm led the X-Treme X-Men and then the X.S.E. teams. Storm later married Black Panther and taken on a new leadership role in Wakanda. The marriage lasted a long time, but [[ShipSinking came crashing]] during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' in which Storm reluctantly took the mutants' side and caused Namor to flood Wakanda. This act enraged Black Panther that he, being both King AND High Priest of Wakanda, announced divorce even if Storm defected to the Avengers' side afterwards. After Wolverine reopened the X-Mansion in New York, Storm became Headmistress of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning and lead the first [[AmazonBrigade all-female team]] of [[Comicbook/AdjectivelessXMen X-Men]] in April 2013. In July 2014, Storm gained her first ongoing self-titled comic, written by Greg Pak. In 2015, with both Wolverine and Cyclops gone, she leads the whole team again in Comicbook/ExtraordinaryXMen.

* AdaptationalWimp: Storm got hit with this pretty hard in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', an animated adaptation where she is very timid, [[DemotedToExtra demoted into an extra]], prone to getting a TapOnTheHead to keep her from easily winning any fights, and knocked out or incapacitated numerous times more often than other X-Men of the show. This is a ''huge'' contrast from the Storm of the comics as well as the other animated X-Men series, who was one of, if not the last X-Men to be taken down in a fight.

** It should be noted that each of these instances was unique in some fashion; N'Astirh had started a HatePlague among the X-Men that was affecting everyone, Ororo included, the Brood violate every principle she believes in, and Dracula had attempted to brainwash her into becoming his concubine.

** It should be noted that each of these instances was unique in some fashion; N'Astirh had started a HatePlague among the X-Men that was affecting everyone, Ororo included, the Brood violate every principle she believes in, and Dracula had attempted to brainwash her into becoming his concubine. And, in the case of the Brood, she did debate with herself rather extensively if she had the right to kill the Brood larva maturing within her, even knowing that it's birth would kill her. The {{Angst}} of this started her BreakTheHaughty arc.

* MundaneUtility: Would frequently use her weather powers to generate small rains to water her plants of give herself a natural shower, playing into her InnocentFanserviceGirl and MsFanservice qualities. She'd even do this ''in front of the other X-Men'', using weather-power-generated SteamCensor. . . or not.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Well, her culture didn't have a taboo about nudity... she grew out of this as the decades went past. ''Somewhat.'' While it's not in every issue like it once was, she still gets this duty more than any other X-character.
