    I didn't know that. But at least I know now.

    Now before anyone says anything, according to the comics; she was born in Manhattan. It counts.
    Um no. Harlem

    How do you guys think her powers would have progressed if she had stayed in Kenya? And did her moving to the U.S with Charles allow her to expand her knowledge of what she can or can't do? If she had stayed in Kenya, would she still be able to pull off a few creative tricks? Or would she have stuck to wind, rain and lightning?
    It's an interesting question. I think she would have still explored the full basics of her weather manipulation but would be no where near as skilled or as powerful as she has become under Xavier's training. Her life as a hero and X-Man has pushed her powers in ways I would not see her needing to do so if she remained in Africa. I think if she remained in Kenya her pursuits would still be heroic and a major figure in the world. Probably similar to what HoM Storm did for Kenya (which was a great thing).

    Hmmm... I kinda don't like Valkyrie because of the PIS but for as long as Stormborn and female Thor having the main focus, I'll be fine with her inclusion.

    Throg is so lucky. :-)

    Anyway, I hope our fellow Storm fans will be back soon.

Instead, they continue to use Storm to re-address Africa in their Western-minded views.

    However, I disagree with trying to retcon Storm's relationship with the African tribes that worshipped her. It wasn't clearly established which tribe they were and it's pointless to re-write them as being one of the actual groups in the Serengeti. This is comic book fiction and it works just as well if they are a fabrication with no basis whatsoever. I was one of those fans who wondered which group it could have been but it doesn't do them any credit. That's why it's better the Age of Ultron didn't identify which African city suffered the Hulk attack. Hollywood shouldn't have to drag a real African metropolis into that kind of spotlight. They have problems of their own.
