Life before the X-Men
Storm was an illegal immigrant from Morocco who settled in Harlem, New York. Using his Cerebro machine, Professor Xavier found Ororo in Athens, Texas, where she'd been stealing cars for a living. When she took a 1978 Mustang for a joy ride, the police finally caught up with her. Pulling her over, Ororo used her powers to create a lightening storm so as to escape. Unfortunately, her control of her powers was limited, and she almost killed a group of children playing in a nearby playground; the police officers then subdued her.
Per orders of Xavier, Jean Grey used her abilities to convince the Athens authorities that Ororo was actually an Federal Bureau of Investigation (Earth-616) agent and that she was sent to relieve them of the mutant. At first Ororo believed that Jean was another of Magneto's henchmen (apparently she had been contacted previously with an offer to join his Brotherhood), but Marvel Girl was there to offer her a place amongst Xavier's X-Men - a team of mutants gathered to halt the undeniable war that was brewing between humans and mutants whilst better mutants' standing in society.
Ororo joined the team not only to help further human/mutant relations, but also to gain control of her powers.
Shortly after joining the X-Men, Ororo, who had chosen the codename Storm for herself, became interested in and began a relationship with fellow X-Man Henry "Hank" McCoy, the Beast. She and Beast remained on and off together for some time, until Beast was killed during a mission. Beast's untimely death led Storm to become belligerent, bitter, and angry; she even drastically changed her personal appearance, altering her style to a punk-inspired look.
Relationship with Wolverine
After Beast's death, Storm took much time to heal emotionally. Eventually, Storm began to flirt with fellow X-Man Wolverine. Initially, Wolverine rejected her, partially because of his feelings for Jean Grey and partially because he left the X-Men. When he left Xavier's school, Storm chose to follow him and the pair later returned to the X-Men.
Storm was later seen with the X-Men during Ultimatum going to New York to help, she later battled Magneto and witnessed Wolverine's death. She attended Cyclops' speech at Washington, D.C. when Scott was shot in the head by Quicksilver. She and Piotr were taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D. and imprisoned in a mutant concentration camp.
Ororo was one of the many mutants seen in Camp Angel, a concentration camp for mutants.
