Storm (along with Cyclops) is my all-time favorite superhero. She’s hands down one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. This backstory is a fun romp that I highly recommend. Before the Storm, is also a reminder that this extraordinary heroine is yet another character who needs her ongoing series like yesterday. ...more
This is the first part of a four part graphic novel that shows part of the childhood of the X-Man called Storm. I found it to be very engaging with great illustrations that made it easy to follow and become part of the action. In this novel she is helping secure food for her fellow thieves when they get caught, it then follows their escape and reuniting with their fellows.

From a text-to-self point of view I could easily relate to Ororo in this novel because she was unwilling to leave behind a f
Yes, I do love the X-Men. This little story of Storm as an egyptian street urchin is pretty entertaining.
I graded it for the audience for which it was intended-which is children. I think an adult picking this up would find the plot pretty predictable but for a kid it's a pretty allright Disneyfied story set in Ororo's Cairo days. As an adult reading this I'd also nitpick that it didn't make sense to make her language so formal-when the character is an adult using english for the first time in ages it might make sense but when she's a little kid who learned the local language from other street kids ...more
I loved that the scenes during the day were printed on a white background while the scenes at night were printed on black. It was a good plot with enjoyable artwork. I can't wait for the storyline to delve deeper into Ororo's discovery of her powers.
Storm is perhaps my favorite superhero of all time and I loved this origin story!

I thought this book was great! I like Marvel so the background story of "Storm" a big character in the X-Men movies. This book is about Storm as a kid,she was Ororo. This was part one in a four part book series. Ororo was a thief along with tones of other kids. These kids were taught by their master. During a pick pocketing Ororo was caught by a guard and chased. During the chase she looks in a window and sees the money opportunity of her life.
This was a fun adventure set in Egypt when Storm was a young street thief named Ororo. I thought that both the story and the artwork were well done making it a great read for Storm fans of all ages. She's always been a favorite of mine from the X-Men and I thought this was an awesome glimpse into her past. Loved it!

Even though this series is made for a young audience, it was nice seeing a background story arc for Storm--since she's one of my all-time favs. The art work was nicely done as well.
One of my favorite characters to read about. Pretty good story.
