Ororo Munroe was orphaned as a child and raised in the streets and back alleys of Cairo, where she had to rely on her wits and courage to survive. The white haired beauty's mutant ability to command the forces of nature manifested in adolescence while she was living in Africa. It was there that Charles Xavier discovered the young mutant girl being worshipped as a goddess and recruited her to join his team of X-Men. The mutant telepath code-named her Storm because of her power to summon hurricane-force winds, torrential rains and intense bolts of lightning. She now uses her complete command of the weather to protect a world that fears and hates her.
