Personality: Storm is a very proud and strong woman. She was originally very naive concerning Western Culture, and had trouble conforming to ideas of modesty and gender roles. However, even in her earliest iterations, Storm was able to command respect from the likes of Doctor Doom and Dracula. She is considered to have one of the strongest wills in the Marvel Universe. Storm does have a darker, more bloodthirsty side that shes not afraid to give into should the situation need it. Storm spent a few years learning to find balance with her darker side when she went through her famous “Punk” phase. Storm is an accomplished leader, even staying on as leader of the X-men when she temporarily lost her powers. Storm’s powers have also given her a very strong appreciation for nature.
