Pre History
As a child, a bomb destroyed Ororo’s home during a Middle Eastern conflict. Ororo’s parents were killed, but she survived, buried under tons of rubble near her mother’s body. This traumatizing experience left Ororo with severe claustrophobia, which afflicts her still. Homeless and orphaned, she came under the tutelage of master thief Achmed el-Gibar. Ororo was his prize pupil, and she became the most accomplished pickpocket and thief in Cairo within a year.

When she was 12, Ororo felt a strong urge to head south and reconnect with her familial roots, and journeyed alone across the Sahara Desert. Finally, she reached her ancestors’ homeland: the Serengeti Plain. By adolescence, her mutant ability to manipulate the weather had emerged, and she used it to aid the local tribes, who worshipped her as the Storm Goddess. Professor X convinced her to abandon the sheltered world she had surrounded herself with so that she could use her great powers to benefit the entire world.

Hated and feared for her strange and frightening abilities—not revered, as she had been in Africa—Ororo has stood fast with the X-Men in their attempts to promote peaceful coexistence between man and mutant. Except for brief periods away from the team, she has remained a member ever since, even through the temporary loss of her mutant abilities.

While she commands Mother Nature’s bountiful gifts, Ororo is capable of unleashing the catastrophic fury of the elements. One with the Earth, she truly understands the sanctity of life and feels a strong obligation to help preserve it in all its forms—man or mutant, plant or animal, good or evil.
