2 High Priestess: Storm
Today we continue our look at the Major Arcana through the lens of Marvel’s X-Men comic book characters! Last week we examined Professor X as The Magician. This week we honor the weather manipulating mutant known as Storm!
Born from the union of an American photojournalist and an African princess, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a goddess in her native Kenya. On a quest to rescue his original X-Men students, Professor X recruited Ororo, informing her that she was a mutant, not a goddess, and that the world needed her. Storm decided to accompany Charles saying, “You present a most peculiar argument–yet I sense a deep sincerity in your words…Perhaps the time has come for me to leave the nest at last.”
