10 Cool Facts You Never Knew About X-Men Storm
6. SHE HAS LED THE X-MEN IN THE PAST
Storm has often been a leader of the X-Men team, and her wisdom, compassion and level-headedness make her perfect for the role. She was a deputy to Cyclops in her earlier days, but took over from him after the events of the Dark Phoenix Saga (when he was in no state to lead, after the loss of Jean Grey).
When the main team split into two in the comics (blue team and gold team), she became the leader of the gold team, which included Jean Grey, Colossus, Archangel, Iceman and Bishop. She has also taken over for Charles Xavier as the headmistress of the School for Gifted Youngsters in the past, a role which she is absolutely perfect for.
While she isn’t always heading up the X-Men (no-one does, as the team has changed so much over the years), she has spent the majority of her time with the team at its head (or as deputy to the leader), and we will undoubtedly see this come to pass at some point within Fox’s X-Men universe.
