The descendant of an ancient line of African priestesses with white hair, blue eyes, and the potential to wield magic, Ororo Munroe was orphaned at a young age when a plane crashed into her family's home in Cairo, Egypt, killing her parents. Ororo managed to escape the rubble of her shattered home with nothing but the tattered clothes on her back and her mother's ancestral ruby. Now homeless with nowhere to turn, Ororo was found by a gang of street urchins who took her to their master, Achmed el-Gibar.

Achmed trained Ororo in the arts of thievery, and she soon became his prize pupil, excelling in picking both pockets and locks. During her time in Cairo, Ororo picked the pocket of an American tourist. The man proved no easy mark, however, as he was Dr. Charles Xavier, a powerful mutant telepath who used his abilities to stop the theft. At that moment, Xavier was psionically attacked by another mutant, and Ororo used the opportunity to escape.

Years later, after a dangerous encounter with a would-be rapist, her mutant ability to psionically control the weather emerged. She used her abilities to rescue T'Challa, the African Prince of Wakanda, with the help of some fellow mutants - the X-Men; however, the newness of her powers and her naivete prevented Dr. Xavier from inviting her to join his the team.

As conflicts arose and the X-Men were left in need of Ororo's powerful assistance, she was inducted and given the codename Storm. Over the years, Storm has proven an invaluable member of the X-Men team, even leading her fellow mutants in clashes against some of the most powerful of enemies.
