The popular X-Men Storm character is set to feature in Black Panther 2 , the sequel to the superhero we’ve all been waiting for.

Here’s some history between Black Panther and Storm.

T’Challa and Ororo first met when they were kids. After Ororo’s parents were assassinated in Cairo, she was left alone to wander the desert. She spent some time as a pickpocket, forced to steal by Achmed El Gibár. Then she left Cairo in search of her mother’s homeland in Kenya. While on her travels, she came across T’Challa –heir to the throne of Wakanda — who was being kidnapped. Using her newly developed weather controlling powers, she rescued him. The pair had an instant chemistry and became friends.

T’Challa and Storm went their separate ways and both joined The Avengers and the X-Men, respectively. Their busy schedules kept them apart most of the time, until T’Challa decided it was time to get married. In 2006, in Black Panther Volume 4: #14 and #15, T’Challa took a knee and proposed to Storm. Storm lamented her heartbreak of being separated from him as child and then said yes to his proposal.
