You know, Storm has serious power over the wrong kind of man. Not only was she the chosen one of Dracula for a hot minute, not to mention Wolverine (which is fine because Logan was a gentleman and a friend to Storm, but also his hands are made of knives and pretty much everyone he dates either dies or returns later to kill him.) I didn’t write the books nor am I casting judgement; these are just facts. Forge is the most chill guy ever and even Forge acted like a total fool with Ororo (see above).
If all that wasn’t bad enough, she’s got Doctor Doom crushing out on her like a schoolboy while also lowkey making it clear that he has no problem with killing her if she gets on his nerves. Isn’t it always the way? Well, Doom is a monster, but Storm is not down for that kind of love. She does consider it for a minute, though. I mean, he has his own country, which turns out to be a huge selling point for Storm a little ways down the road when she becomes, you know, QUEEN OF WAKANDA.
Anyway, Doom and the unbelievably ridiculous X-Men villain Arcade take some of the X-Men’s friends captive just to get them to go to Arcade’s evil amusement park, A.K.A. Murderworld, perhaps the best name for anything, ever. Storm is ready to throw down with Doctor Doom, but he turns the encounter into a dinner invitation. Doom, you sly old dog! Unfortunately, despite his fondness for Storm, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s extremely bad and so he still pretty much tries to kill her. In turn, she pretty much tries to kill him, then they just agree to go their separate ways and maybe meet up later. Probably for the best.
