We're shining a spotlight on some of our favorite heroes for Black History Month (28 heroes over 28 days ... follow along), and today it's all about Storm.

Introduced to the comic book world back in 1975 in the pages of Giant-Size X-Men #1, Ororo Munroe was the first black female hero to take a leading role in a mainstream comic. She has a badass power set that allows her to control the weather, and she straight-up rocks that mohawk.

However, it's her leadership abilities that really set her apart. Storm has led the X-Men more than a few times and has won just about every battle she's ever been in.

Outside of her typical X-Men duties, Storm has also (literally) been a queen, thanks to her marriage to T'Challa (aka the Black Panther, King of Wakanda). She was one awesome queen, and even taught the mighty Black Panther a thing or two about leadership along the way.

Enjoy our homage to Storm below. What's your all-time favorite Storm moment?
