Episode 63: X-Men’s Storm, The Most Recognizable Black Superhero

Most people with little knowledge of comic books and comic book characters know a few things about X-Men’s Storm, aka Ororo Munroe. After losing both her parents during the Suez Canal Crisis in Cairo, Egypt, an orphaned Ororo became a young pickpocket. From there, she wandered into Kenya where a group of uncontacted peoples worshipped her as a goddess. It was in Kenya that Professor Charles Xavier, creator of the original roster of X-Men, sought her out to join a second incarnation of X-Men with Wolverine, Thunderbird, Colossus, Nightcrawler and others from around the world. Ororo gave up her life as a goddess to accept Professor Xavier’s proposition to join a world that, not only doesn’t worship her, but despises her for being born with a genetic mutation — the power to control the weather.
