    I think what the OP is going for here is "MADE" in the sense that Storm was introduced in an African village in GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1/ X-MEN #94 in 1975. It wouldn't be until X-MEN #102 in 1976 that David Munroe as her American father was introduced as a concept. Prior to that there was no reason the reader would assume that she wasn't native to the village where Xavier encountered her in GSX1. Claremont CHOSE to write that backstory at that point therefore MADE Storm Americanized character rather than have her fully rooted in the African continent. Yes?

    And I have never read anything about the rationale behind it. Its odd since one of the imperatives of the ALL-NEW ALL-DIFFERENT team was to make the team more globally diverse.

    I once saw an interview where they ask Chris what is storms true raw power and whether phoenix that is Jean with the force not just by herself is more powerful. Chris said no, infact they have roughly the same amount of raw power the difference is that pheonix can peak higher under normal circumstances and can maintain that much longer, whilst storm is still limited by her humanity and her body. So no when he said her power was beyond all comprehension or when he said it was now at an unimaginable degree he wasn't exaggerating, he really did and still does see her as that powerful storm was literally the blue print to how powerful the pheonix should be a being with unimaginable power.
    The difference is that pheonix was allowed to revel in her power to push past her limits from planetary to start level to universal and on one occasion multiversal. whilst storm has been basically working on the same confines as her just that now she has bumped up to planetary instead of hemisphere. And occasionally interplanetary.
    In the animated series she is the only mutant on record stated to have boundless power deep within her without external influence, the only one to be able to manipulate an entire planets forces with little effort even magneto needed Cortez to amp him to raise an asteroid.
    When storm faced and hurt silver surfer many fans were upset saying this shouldn't be, but storm has faced him before and has been able to do way worse when she was actually serious against him.
    When knull said she was more powerful than all the heroes under his army, people scrambled to Duggan to know if it were true cause it was something beyond their realm of thought and when he gave the vague omega omega answer some saw it as oh it is true and others were like it was an exaggeration. Meanwhile this is not the first time it has been stated that she is in sheer potential more powerful than Thor. Another charachter that is allowed to revel in their power and to get upgrades almost every year because he need to blow bigger stuff up.
    When she single handedly was able to take on xman/legion people where saying why is that the case how could she do that whilst jean, apocalypse, magneto and all the most powerful xmen couldn't together. And that this is PIS. When you point it out to them that storm is simply that powerful they perish the thought with some retreating to the "oh it's a hyperbole" statement.
    Now I don't want to be rude but if storm the only black omega in krakoa is stated to be their most powerful mutant erks them in the wrong way then like I said..... They can go an eat lightning Idc.
    Half of Marvel's Fandom underestimates Storm's power, I really don't know why, l, I'd like to know, but I understand, Storm didn't start out as Magneto, Thor, Iron Man, and other characters, who from an early age showed great powers. , and yet but with the Fox movies, a lot of people think that Storm's power is that, rain, lightning and gale, which makes me even more frustrated. Storm lacks the good old encouragement from the writers.

    One of the little things that annoys me is the fact that there are always moments, in the comics or writers, that talk about the enormous potential of Storm's powers, but how much does it cost them to show that in the comics?

    There really is no need to play Gatekeeper of Storm's powers and integrity, here because I wasn't attacking the character or her powers...as with the Jean-fans and Rogue-fans and Lorna-fans y'all are quick to jump to conclusions and insults at the slightest "threat" to your vaunted opinions completely forgetting that your opinions are not the only ones that are relevant or important, that other fans may also have thoughts of their own that don't quite mesh with yours. And I'm not here for that pettiness and mess.

    So yes, I'll DT that lightning thank you, and swallow every electron because at the end of the day, I'm not that pressed. Thank the Goddess.
    I understand what you mean, I just used Ororo as an example, of why hyperbole is a little bad, but although it would be nice if it came back, as well as other elements that used in the old comics, which you see little nowadays .

    Fuck. Yes.
    In Jennifer Hudson's voice I sing

    "It's been a long long long looooong loooooooooong
    Tiiiiiiimmmmmmmmeeeeee coooominging..iiiing...iiing...iing
    A change is going to come
    Oh yes it will."

    Lol but in all seriousness I hope this is not just like the reign of x poster where she was just yaaass queening it all over town, we need to see her cut loose and finally get to the plot about her divinity and her ancestors. Also the mowhawk seems like we would never escape that.
    I hope she is still regent in her destiny that is the position in krakoa that is big enough for her.

    Lol don't wait any longer, Leah's writing sucks, it was only good on issue #1..On that little confrontation and the assertion of something we already knew, Storm >> Magneto

    Let's start manifesting and please when manifesting do not speak English it has no spiritual value, manifest in the language of your ancestors, that has great spiritual potency.

    Absolutely agreed.
    As a literary device it was certainly used more frequently by the "old-school" more literary writers like Claremont, Lee etc to great effect. Unfortunately, I would say since the onset of the 90's contemporary writers with their more direct prose are far less inclined to use it at all. That kind of storytelling is a rarity in 2021 comics.

    So the ratonal part of me thinks Russell, as a Storm fan, is as shook as the rest of us with this image. However, the hype part of me sees that eye emoji and jumps to **OMG IS HE GOING TO BE THE ARTIST FOR A STORM BOOK!?!?!?!?! Instantly recalls how he said Storm and Jean were his favorites**

    With my still burgeoning knowledge in planetary science, she could generate pressures with no upper limit crushing mountains and even coalescing atmospheric carbon into diamond.
    Generate temperatures with no upper limit.
    Create hurricane of fire or plasma.
    Gravity storms.
    Nebula manipulation.
    Antimatter storms which annihilate anything.
