10 Things You May Not Have Known About the Fearless Comic Character Storm


Storm’s Name Means ‘Beautiful’

The name Ororo Munroe was made up by creators Dave Cockrum and Len Wein. But, in “X-Men #133,” Ororo says that her name means “beauty” in English. And she is beautiful. In fact, Storm was ranked 30th in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics.” Coincidentally, she’s from Kenya and, in Swahili, Ororo actually means “soft” or “delicate.”

Storm Didn’t Fly Because Berry Was Pregnant

In all Halle Berry’s appearances in the X-Men movies, she’s done impressive stunts like flying — except in X-Men: Days of Future Past. That’s because the actress was pregnant and didn’t want to take a chance of harming herself or her baby. She told the BBC, “Storm probably won’t be as bad**s as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that. She’ll be different than we originally planned her to be, but I still think she’ll be an integral part of this new X-Men movie.”
