Halle Berry as Storm in X-Men

Who knew talking about the weather could be this interesting? As Ororo Monroe, a.k.a Storm, a Harlem-born, Cairo-raised daughter of Kenyan immigrants, Berry's character plays a superhero with a seemingly mundane power: controlling the weather. Anyone who has lived through a nor'easter or superstorm knows how potent that can be.
