* CreatorsPet: Creator/ChrisClaremont really, really, ''really'' likes Storm. Not that this is necessarily bad. Just that it's incredible noticeable.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: She's one of the most prominent and popular black superheroes of all time, and Marvel's most prominent female superhero.
* EscapistCharacter: One of the most overtly escapist in the entire Franchise/XMen mythos. She has won the SuperpowerLottery, a fact which makes her one of the most powerful members of the team. She is also [[PhysicalGod worshipped as a goddess]], [[PowerLossMakesYouStrong has incredible skills in both unarmed combat and thieving]], and is heart-stoppingly gorgeous. She keeps attracting lovers and even some of her enemies want her.
* FanPreferredCouple: Her and [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Logan]]. Fans of the pairing cite that OppositesAttract, and that her reserve and idealism would balance out his AntiHero tendencies, while his more earthy, passionate nature would keep her stable and grounded.
** AscendedFanon: One ComicBook/WhatIf issue had the X-Men long since trapped on another planet where Logan and she have a child.
* LesYay: With Callisto, [[FoeYay her rival for leadership of the Morlocks]], and Yukio, a Japanese thief.
* MyRealDaddy: Len Wein and Dave Cockrum created Storm, but it was Creator/ChrisClaremont who developed the character.
* PanderingToTheBase: With the much hyped post-''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' merger featuring more ComicBook/XMen characters joining various ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' team, the reason given for the dissolution of the Black Panther - Storm marriage (not being able to feature the two characters in the same book) came off as FalseDichotomy. Fans have emerged on both sides of the issue some vocal ones that never warmed to the relationship favoring the break and others that feel the relationship never got the chance to be handled properly.
** The fact that one of the first things she does [[spoiler: after breaking up with Black Panther is sleep with Wolverine]] really doesn't help things.
* ThemePairing: [[ComicBook/TheMIghtyThor Thor]] / Storm has a substantial following due to the fact that both of them are associated with weather.
