Another Word: Super Duper Sexual Spiritual Black Woman: The New and Improved Magical Negro - Chesya Burke

Best known as the on-again-off-again leader of the X-Men, Storm is the queen of Wakanda (due to her marriage to the comic character Black Panther) and possesses the ability to control all elements of the weather, both on Earth and beyond.
