Storm doesn't quite approach the status she had in previous iterations in this series (especially X-Men Legends); but, she is strong. The big negative is actually her clearing Power, Gale Force, which clears a little too well. It throws mobs quite a distance without doing a whole lot of damage. This is okay if you're on a high point and enemies are being thrown to their deaths, but when they're just getting to their feet again – now too far to reach with anything else – it's a bit of a problem. Her high Teamwork makes her a good choice for Fusion attacks; but, she lacks a good boss-killer Power of her own.
Only in PS3 and X-BOX 360 versions.
