    Character Biography


    Ororo Munroe was born in Harlem, NY to a Kenyan Princess and an African American photojournalist. When she was an infant her parents relocated to Cairo, Egypt where her parents later died during the Arab-Israeli conflict. Ororo was buried alive from said attack and would develop severe claustrophobia as a result. After her parents death, a young orphaned Ororo lived on the streets of Cairo as an urchin where she became an expert thief under the instruction of Achmed El Gibar. At age 12 she had a yearning to travel south and she began a trek out of Egypt. On this trek she killed a man who attempted to rape her and befriended a young tchalla who would grow up to become king of Wakanda, her true love and husband. She finally ended her trek in her mother's birthplace where she was worshipped as a goddess until Xavier recruited her to become an Xman. She would go on to become one of the most respected members of the team leading over various periods of time.

    Powers


    Psionically linked to the weather patterns of Earth, Ororo perceives the world around her as patterns of energy/forces thus allowing her to command meteorological energy patterns to raise or lower temperature levels, direct air currents as hurricane-force winds, a pressure dome that can deflect attacks, or to maneuver herself through the sky, excite electron particles to call down lightning bolts, scramble incoming psionic assaults, or fire electrical blasts from her fingertips, and summon clouds as fog cover or in order to bring forth precipitation such as rain, snow, sleet, and hail, and (as mentioned) can manipulate her own perceptions to see electrical energy and the factors behind weather phenomena. Her powers are not limited solely to the meteorological effects on earth, as she can and has manipulated the energies on alien planets after establishing communion or bonding to the planet/energies. It should be noted that her powers are augmented when utilized in outer-space as demonstrated by her infamous galatic core feat. Additionally Ororo has been credited as being one of the most powerful mutants with the classification as an omega-level mutant and was recently confirmed to be a real goddess known as the Hadari Yao, she who preserves the balance of all natural things.

    Glad to see this Appreciation thread return. Here's to a healthy and prosperous 2021!

    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    And I can't start the new year without a little petty. Let's get posting so we can get that reading list pushed back. Lmao

A twisted version of herself that is devoid of Storm’s moral/ethical struggle and has a skewed and disdainful view of Storm’s mission in life. I know Ororo went gangster on her and killed her but I’d love for them to being her back as Nova’s left hand, equalize her to Storm as a dark omega and incorporate her into Storm’s story. I recall that Bishop made Storm a revenant hunter after she killed her revenant - like a rite of passage. I’d love a story built around that, with Storm, Bishop, Cyclops, Jean & Betsy front & center.

    that book was more miss for me honestly but I agree about the revensnt being added to the rogue gallery. I did feel like at that time though beung underwhelmed by their abilities and was hoping for more.

    oh I vaguely remember that detail about the revenant killer that would be cool. I would be curious to see how the revenant would try to twist the recent revelation she is a goddess into information she could use against her. she teased her for going away from this aspect of herself but not claimed what could she do to possibly corrupt ororo herself? it could be a challenging new threat if the revenabt was written appropriately.

    Exactatiously..."A skewed and disdainful view of Storm's mission in this life".
    A twisted recounting of what actually transpired throughout Storm's history so as to play on her doubts, and fears, and confidence. No "truths" were uttered by the revenant.

    If they are terraforming a planet, then I see how Storm's weather powers and planet growth abilities will be a major help/
