Onscreen History of Storm

In 1975, the second wave of mutants were introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1. Among the new characters being added to the team line-up were the previously introduced Wolverine and new characters Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Storm.The weather wielder Storm has gone on to become one of the most popular members of the X-Men.

Storm made her onscreen debut in 1981 on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends appearing in a couple of episodes which recounted the origins of Firestar and Iceman along with other members of the X-Men team. 

Storm made her next appearance in 1989's Pryde of the X-Men, the animated pilot for a failed X-Men series.

As one of the primary characters in the 1992 X-Men animated series, Storm received plenty of screen time including storylines centered around her origin as an orphan at the mercy of the Shadow King and as a leader of the mutant rebellion alongside husband Wolverine in the alternate reality of One Man's Worth. 

This version of Storm also had the misfortune of being swept into the Secret Wars crossover on the Spider-Man animated series with Captain America, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four.

In the Fantastic Four animated series episode  Prey Of The Black Panther, a woman who strongly resembled Storm made a very brief cameo. 

Storm was featured as one of the senior team members in X-Men where she showed a toad what happened when he got struck by lightning. Storm returned in X2: X-Men United.

In 2000, Storm appeared on X-Men: Evolution as one of the original core members.

While Storm returned for X-Men the Last Stand in 2006, she was slightly "amped" up, with the new found ability to shoot lightning rather than to just summer storm clouds. She also rocked a new no nonsense hairdo.

In the animated film, Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow, the young Avenger Azari inherited powers from his father, Black Panther and his implied mother, Storm.

Although Storm did not officially appear in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a young girl resembling Storm and consistent with her age did make an appearnace in a deleted scene.

Once again, Storm was a primary team member in 2009's Wolverine and the X-Men.

Next up, Storm appeared in several episodes of 2010's Super Hero Squad Show.

In 2011, Storm appeared in the unaired in the US animated motion comic style Black Panther animated series.

Once again, a young Storm made a quick cameo in 2011's X-Men: First Class, this time making the final cut.

Later in 2011, Storm was included in the Marvel Anime: X-Men series and its only a matter of time before this popular mutant makes her next appearance.
