Fans have always rooted for the romance between the weather witch and the protector of Wakanda. Their relationship has seen some rough patches, and their stories have taken the fans on a beautiful journey. Even though the two couldn’t last, they have grown individually, as well as together as a couple. Here is how the dynamics between Storm and Black Panther have evolved over time.
THE TWO BECAME CLOSE FRIENDS WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG: Long before they became famous as Storm and Black Panther, the two had met in Africa. They talked and ended up being good friends. Growing up, they had a lot of respect and understanding, which led to a solid romantic relationship.
STORM SOUGHT BLACK PANTHER’S HELP: When Ororo left for Africa in the 2000s, she needed someone to guide her in locating the threats around the continent. This was when she turned to the Black Panther. He helped her, making them each other’s confidants.
THE PEACE-MAKERS: The two got married during the civil war. They asked the guests for a ceasefire as a wedding gift. Most of the guests agreed except for Iron man and Captain America.
FOUND NEW BELIEFS AS A COUPLE: Storm was a famous mutant and a US citizen, which posed many threats to her during the superhuman registration act. Seeing his wife’s struggles, Black Panther, who had been neutral regarding this topic, publicly stood against SRA.
THEY WERE IN THE FANTASTIC FOUR: When Reed and Sue took time off after the civil war, Black Panther and Storm replaced them for a while. However, fans were concerned about their relationship dynamics, seeing what happed to Reed and Storm. But the two only emerged much more strengthened as a couple after working as a team in The Fantastic Four.
DURING DIVORCE: After the two got divorced, Black Panther engaged himself in work, much like Storm. She became the headmistress of a school where she taught mutants to yield their full potential. During this time, the two were barely talking. And these conversations, too, were burdened with the fact that Storm was interested in Wolverine.
THE REAL FEUD: Storm, who was standing in support of the X-Men, was surprised to see Black Panther giving refuge to Avengers in Wakanda. When Norman got to know of this, he raged a war against Wakanda. This ended up killing lots of Black Panther’s people. When Storm came to help, Black Panther banished her.
AFTER BEING EXES: When Storm became the representative of the Krakoan nation, she was asked to fight in a competition against Arakko. Unfortunately, this demanded her to carry the Skybreaker blade. This was under the possession of the Royal Family of Wakanda. After her request for the sword was denied, she snuck into the palace and stole it.
THE ENMITY: Black Panther is the chairman of Avengers, while the Weather Whitch is the Regent of planet Arakko. So there isn’t a need to explain how their responsibilities can bring them in a position of conflict yet another time.
