Too many options to restrict this to a poll thread, so list your favourites.

From this site (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Storm)


Action Girl: She was always one of the stronger X-Men; however, she possibly gained the most physical and emotional growth and Xenafication out of all the X-Women.
An Ice Person: Comes with her control of the weather.
Antihero: Sometimes, usually Type III.
Archenemy: The Shadow King
Authority Equals Asskicking: She's the X-Men's team leader, an African priestess, and now she's queen of Wakanda.
Author Appeal: There's the belief that Chris Claremont actually fell in love with Storm.
Baby Got Back: Definitely!!
Badass Cape: Usually!!
Badass Normal: For a little while (4 real-world years), Storm was rendered powerless. However, she continued to lead the X-Men and even defeated Cyclops in 1-on-1 battle for that honor.
Badass Pacifist: She really prefers not fight. And wants to be a full-fledged pacifist one day.
Bare Your Midriff: Some of her more sexy costumes.
Berserk Button: You probably shouldn't hold her down or from behind. She almost killed John Proudstar over this. It's also in your best interest not to mess with her fellow X-Men. Especially Kitty Pryde.
Beware the Nice Ones: She's easily the nicest person on the team, possibly tied with Kitty Pryde. However, you don't want to see her mad.
Bi the Way
Blow You Away: Her second most common form of attack.
Blue Eyes
Brought Down To Badass: During the many times she's been depowered.
But Not Too Black: Black, variably dark skin, but with white and Asian features, and blue eyes. She was supposed to have features of many races, to resemble Gaia. However, this largely depends on the artist.
Calling Your Attacks: In the '90s animated series. Lampshaded during a guest appearance in Spider-Man's 90's animated series:
Storm: Power of lightning, strike again!!
Spider-Man: Uh, power of web-shooters, get real sticky!
Claustrophobia
Clothing Damage: Frequently.
Dating Catwoman: Storm gains the attention of, and feels attracted to villains about as often as she does to other heroic characters. Among them are Dr Doom (or rather, a Doom-Bot), Arkon, Dracula, Loki, and Khan (no, not that one). Wolverine even made note of it, stating that any bad guy worth knowing would be attracted to her (can't exactly blame them).
Dark-Skinned Blond
Deadpan Snarker: It's actually harder to notice than most characters due to her speech tone. However, she is usually the quickest to point out when a plan is silly.
Does Not Like Shoes: She was barefoot in her years in Africa. She occasionally does barefoot.
Elemental Baggage
Elemental Powers: Complete control over the weather, which gives her the ability to whip up lightning, wind, and ice storms in combat, among a plethora of other useful tricks.
Expository Hairstyle Change: Got a mohawk to rebel against her designation as Team Mom.
Fetish Fuel Station Attendant: A dark skinned white-haired queen with junk in the trunk, the Most Common Superpower, and legs that go on for days (which factor into her impressive height) who, up until recently, had a penchant for going out in the nude... a lot. And she loves gardening, reading, and flying through the rain naked.
Getting Crap Past The Radar: There's and crazy amount of nude storm appearances during the early years of her introduction.
Back in the '80s, Jim Shooter forbade Chris Claremont from depicting homosexual relationships in the X-books. Claremont proceeded to sneak two lesbian couples past Shooter in subtle ways. One was Mystique and Destiny; the other is arguably Storm and Yukio. At one point, Storm is offered her "heart's desire", which is to live in Tokyo with Yukio with no cares or responsibilities.
Glowing Eyes of Doom: Whenever she is using her powers.
Hell-Bent for Leather: Again, during her Mohawk phase and for a brief period after.
Arguably, the full-body silver-white costume she sported in the animated series may be this.
The High Queen
Hot Amazon: During her "powerless" phase, several characters commented on how being more open about her emotions, especially when kicking butt, "made her lovelier still."
I Believe I Can Fly: With wind.
Innocent Fanservice Girl: Well, her culture didn't have a taboo about nudity... She grew out of this as the decades went past.
In Harm's Way: For all her talk of pacifism, even Storm found palace life and politics extremely boring after she married the Black Panther, and continued to help the X-Men whenever she could.
Lady of War
Large Ham: Specially in the 90s cartoon series, where she would verbally command the elements. Lampshaded by Rogue in the first episode.
"Rogue: Lighten up on the speeches, sugar!"
Leotard of Power: Most of her iconic costumes have been leotards with some form of cape.
Les Yay: With Callisto, her rival for leadership of the Morlocks, and Yukio, a Japanese thief.
Mama Bear: It's best not to mess with the younger X-Men. And more specifically with her godchild in the comics and Spike in X-Men Evolution.
Master of Unlocking: She keeps a pair of lockpicks on her person at all times and is very skilled with them.
Memetic Sex Goddess: In universe. People just can't help falling for her.
And out of universe!!
Monochromatic Eyes
Ms. Fanservice: Liked public nudity a lot, especially in earlier appearances.
New Powers As the Plot Demands: Sometimes slips into this. For instance, did you know that in the Black Panther animated series she can use Cerebro now?
The Paragon: Depending on the Writer, and has slipped into Type III antihero at times. For the most part, though, she's a solid example.
Physical God: She considers herself this at times, due to being worshipped as one, but is always completely outmatched by The Mighty Thor, even repeatedly under Claremont's pen. She is very powerful by human standards, and can potentially cause great natural disasters, but is very far from a world-buster or high level reality-manipulator. However, she was granted additional power by Loki at one point, and on another was shown as a member of "The Twelve".
Platonic Life Partners: Her and Logan. Some fans feel it's more.
Power Loss Makes You Strong: Her Mohawk phase is perhaps one of the oldest examples in comics.
The Rival: Emma Frost and Callisto
Romantic Two Girl Friendship: She and Jean Grey considered each other as sisters at one point.
She's Got Legs
Shock And Awe: Her most common form of attack.
Spock Speak: Actually quite common among English speakers in eastern Africa, though the the writers probably didn't know that at the time.
Statuesque Stunner: Storm is one long-legged, 5'11 slab of gorgeousness.
Street Urchin: When she was younger.
Superpowerful Genetics: The extraordinary features of Ororo. Blue eyes, white hair, and weather manipulation is carried through a gene for FIVE generations until it activates, so Storm's power was passed from her great-great grandmother.
Take Me Instead: When T'Challa succumbs to very bad wounds, Ororo entered the spirit world so she take T'Challa's place, so the people of Wakanda wouldn't lose their spiritual leader.
Technical Pacifist: She wants to be a pacifist, is just not in the cards now.
Team Mom
Thou Shalt Not Kill: Storm was almost raped in Kenya when she was younger and killed the man with a knife. She swore that she would never take another life.
Took a Level in Badass: Her mohawk phase.
Twofer Token Minority
Weather Dissonance
White-Haired Pretty Girl
Wolverine Publicity: She's been regularly featured in X-Men since 1975. Had many solo series', many mini series'. Has made guest appearances. Also have appeared in every game in the Marvel vs Capcom series and Marvel RPG's
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Originally claustrophobia, though this has abated significantly over the years from "crippling terror" to "throw away" fear.
Nowadays it will usually only come up when they need to get Storm out of a fight without any Chickification.
Xenafication: She mainly relied her powers in the beginning. She'd later go on to become one of the best fighters in both hand-to-hand and weapon combat.

If you actually go to the site, a lot of them are hyperlinked and you can find out what a "type III antihero" is, and what the "large ham" trope means. (presumably)

My favourite Storm trope:




Hell-Bent for Leather

There's a reason we call the trope "Draco In Leather Pants". There's something about tanned cow hide that's cool and extremely sexy to many people.

Leather's Bad Ass associations originally stem from leather being the garb of choice for bikers, who wore it for practical reasons. One of the quickest ways to show that someone is Bad Ass or sexy in a "bad boy/girl" way is to dress them up in shiny black leather.

It will be black leather the vast majority of the time. Other colors just don't have the same effect in most cases, though white and red do sometimes work, as does the traditional brown. For increased badassery, have the black leather lit by a sodium lamp: Black leather, deep green highlights.

Needless to say, this is one of the most common sources of Fetish Fuel, and writers/filmmakers are usually aware of this, often combining it with other Fanservice and Fetish Fuel tropes like Whip It Good and Of Corsets Sexy. Also the preferred clothing of the Badass Biker, Leatherman, Rule Abiding Rebel, those who are Troubled but Cute and almost any character that gets an Evil Makeover.

See also Spandex, Latex, or Leather, Pretty In Mink, Dominatrix.

So much to enjoy. Here are some of the highlights:


Author Appeal: There's the belief that Chris Claremont actually fell in love with Storm.

Beware the Nice Ones: She's easily the nicest person on the team, possibly tied with Kitty Pryde*. However, you don't want to see her mad.
Getting Crap Past The Radar: There's and crazy amount of nude storm appearances during the early years of her introduction. Back in the '80s, Jim Shooter forbade Chris Claremont from depicting homosexual relationships in the X-books. Claremont proceeded to sneak two lesbian couples past Shooter in subtle ways.

Large Ham: Specially in the 90s cartoon series, where she would verbally command the elements. Lampshaded by Rogue in the first episode.


It's worth noting that a lot of the stuff in this list she is "known for" and is actually kind of awesome, like being a bad-ass protector of younger X-Men/momma bear, she hasn't done in yeeeeaaaaaarrrrrs.

*Shadowcat is most definitely not nice.

I think this one is in a league by itself:



Author Appeal: There's the belief that Chris Claremont actually fell in love with Storm.


If you go to the "Author Appeal" trope page, you'll find:



When a pornstar revealed that Claremont had allegedly hired one of his colleagues to dress up as Storm (a strong female character he wrote) and do things to him involving copious amount of lubricant, many people were grossed out, but only a few were surprised.

I knew Ororo fit into each and every one of those trope, but I can't help myself, she's DY-NO-MITE!!! It is a testament to the derivative nature of male sexual preferences and fetishes that a character like Ororo exists. She is the sum of so many tropes, yet Ororo is able to transcend all of them and rise up as a prominent figure in fiction.

I like the tropes of Storm

a)gadding about naked. Seems you couldn't go an issue without seeing Ororo partially nude back in the day. I loved how she used to whip of her clothes and whip up a rainstorm to have a shower. My two fav instances of Storm nudity occured in

Uncanny X-Men #160 (I think) when Storm went outside wearing nothing but awhite fur coat in the middle of a chilly New York winter: she then whipped the coat off to "reconnect with nature".

Uncanny X-Men # 203When Rachel Summers borrows Storm's soul, there is a brief glimpse of Ororo's topless body sprawled across her bed. :biggrin:


b)bi-curious!
I knew there was something going on between Storm and Yukio when I read that "From the Ashes" trade back in high school! I wonder did they get it on or just hold hands and make bold declarations of love? :wink:

c)the MOHAWK!
I loved Storm's leather and mohawk phase--guess those long, hot nights in Japan with Yukio really did a number on her, eh?

Is that bit about Claremont hiring a porn star to dress up like Storm and...um....can I even say what she did on here? :eek:

Thanx for turning me on to that site, JAM!
