**Powers and abilities**
(Weather manipulation):
*Storm is one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel Universe. She has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, all of which are facets of her power to control the weather.

*Storm possesses the ability to control all forms of weather. She can control the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture, coalesce toxic atmospheric pollutants into acid rain or toxic fog, control the wind to elevate herself to fly at high altitudes and speeds, generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. She can produce all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes, and can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

*Besides the atmosphere, Storm has demonstrated the ability to control natural forces that include cosmic storms, solar wind, ocean currents, and the electromagnetic field. She can create electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields and has demonstrated the ability to create electrolytic fields to separate water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen. While in outer space, she is able to affect and manipulate the interstellar and intergalactic mediums. Storm can alter her visual perceptions so as to see the universe in terms of energy patterns, detecting the flow of the electromagnetic fields behind weather phenomena, machines, and nervous systems.

*Storm has shown to be sensitive to the dynamics of the natural world. One consequence of this connection to nature is that she often suppresses extreme feelings to prevent her emotional state from resulting in violent weather. She has sensed a diseased and dying tree on the X-Mansion grounds, detected objects within various atmospheric mediums–including water, and sensed the incorrect motion of a hurricane in the Northern Hemisphere and the gravitational stress on the tides by the Moon and Sun as well as the distortion of a planet’s magnetosphere.

*Storm’s mutant abilities are limited by her willpower and the strength of her body. Her character has been described as being a “possible Omega-level mutant.”

(Magical potential)…
*Storm’s ancestry supports the use of magic and witchcraft. Many of her ancestors were sorceresses and priestesses. Storm’s matrilenial powers have even been linked to the real-world Rain Queens of Balobedu, the region from which her Sorceress Supreme ancestor, Ayesha, hails from. The Mystic Arcana series deals with Storm’s ancestor Ashake, who worships the Egyptian goddess Ma’at, also known as Oshtur–the mother of Agamotto. Some of Storm’s alternate universe selves possess considerable magical talent. Although Storm has not developed her magical potential, it has been hinted at. The Mystic Arcana series lists the characters with magic potential according to the Marvel Tarot deck. The Tarot asserts Storm as being “High Priestess,” the First Tarot’s choice one-third of the time. The other draws were the Scarlet Witch and Agatha Harkness. These three characters split the High Priestess card equally. On a separate note, it has been stated that Storm’s spirit is so strong that she was able to host the consciousness of Eternity, a feat which very few Marvel characters can do without going insane.

(ComBat and thivery)
*torm has been additionally portrayed as a skilled thief and a gifted hand-to-hand fighter, trained by Wolverine. By using superior strategy, Storm has overcome physically superior fighters like Callisto and the Crimson Commando in hand-to-hand combat. Storm is fluent in Arabic and Swahili, a characterization that gives her a thick African accent[citation needed]. As part of her paraphernalia, Storm carries a set of lock-picks and her ancestral ruby, which allows inter-dimensional transportation with the help of her lightning.

(Physical abilities & traits)
*torm’s physiology grants her immunity to extreme weather conditions and temperatures. Her body compensates for rapid decreases or increases in atmospheric pressure.
She can see in near-complete darkness and has superb dexterity.
Storm has been described as having one of the strongest wills among the X-Men, making her highly resistant to psychic attacks. Telepaths have found it difficult to track her down and probe her thoughts. Several of these traits are independent of her mutant status and are a result of her ancestry. Also, when utilizing her powers, Storm’s eyes turn milk white.

    *Historical significance*

    *Storm was one of the first black comic book characters, and the first black female, to play either a major or supporting role in the big two comic book houses, Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Within these two companies, her 1975 debut was only preceded by a few male black characters.

    *In Marvel Comics, preceding characters were Gabe Jones (debuted in 1963), Black Panther (1966), Bill Foster (1966), Spider-Man supporting characters Joe Robertson (1967) and his son Randy (1968) and Hobie Brown, The Falcon (1969), Luke Cage (1972), Blade (1973) and Abe Brown (1974). In DC Comics, she was preceded by Teen Titans member Mal Duncan who debuted in 1970, Green Lantern wielder John Stewart (1971), and Mister Miracle prot
