    1983 - Mohawk Storm
    From Paul Smith’s blog:

    Towards the end of my X-Run, Weezie (editor Louise Jones), and hubby, Walt Simonson, go on vacation. They leave daughter Julie behind (there’s a movie in there somewhere). Upon departure, Walt sported the hirsute look we’ve all come to know and love. Upon his return, not so much. Somewhere in-between he’d undergone a tonsorial transformation of titanic proportion. He was now pink faced! Beard and mustache… gone.

    Daughter Julie is not amused. She runs from the room. That’s not Daddy, that’s one of the pod-people!

    Chris thinks this is story gold. He puts Storm through her paces. She loses her powers. She loses her nerve. She gets blowed up. Her powers attack her. But that ain’t the worst of it. She loses huge chunks of her beautiful hair! Storm needs a stylist.

    I do a number of different styles and AS A JOKE, I include a Mr T mohawk for laughs and giggles. Chris and Weezie fail to laugh and latch on to it immediately (d’oh!) I argue as best I can but, my run is essentially over. My vote doesn’t count. Weezie says (and this is pretty much a quote) “We’re going to get hung no matter what we do. We may as well commit the murder.”

    Stuck with the mohawk, I do my best to make it work. Once the style is set, I determine she needs leathers to pull it off. Punk Storm is born.

    ORORO MUNROE aka STORM
    Art from BLACK PANTHER MWF URBAN JUNGLE & CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BLACK WIDOW by Francesco Francavilla

    Ending this BLACK SUPERHEROES HISTORY WEEK with a legendary African Superhero and a very important member of the X-Men: STORM.

    Ororo Munroe (also known as STORM) was created in 1975 by writer Len Wein and artist Dave Cockrum.
    Her first appearance was in MARVEL’s Giant Size X-Men #1, published in May of that year. She is the former queen consort of Wakanda, a title once held by marriage to King T’Challa, better known as the Black Panther. Her main abilities (among other) are weather manipulation and flight.

    The look of the character has gone through some changes over the decades, from big full hair to mo hawk (see above) even if the peculiar white hair have been a constant int he design.
    STORM became even more popular after the series of X-Men movies where she is portrayed by Halle Berry.

    And this is it for now, but no worries as I want to come back later to BLACK SUPERHEROES (and not necessarily in February of 2015: most likely sooner than that) and tackle characters like Blade, Brother Voodoo, Black Dynamite, and more.

    Cheers,
    FF

    This is the thing, John Romita Jr could be perfect even under the crunch, sometimes for several years straight. Not a bump on the road to be seen. Here’s a fraction. 

    Stories by Anne Nocenti & Chris Claremont. Various inks by Dan Green and Al Williamson.
