    Actually, my opinion, a lot of Ororo's family has been ignored/downplayed. Were her parents only children? I remember an ancestor was mentioned/seen once (in New Mutants); a cousin(?) was mentioned in her recent solo book; and Spike in the cartoon. Given how much attention has been given to other Xmen family members, I think she's been shafted.


I stopped reading the X-Men consistently back in the 90s. Since then, I would dabble in particular story lines that for whatever reason looked interesting to me. (Recently the X-Men versus Inhumans caught my interest.)

Somehow, as a result, I knew nothing about Ororo's roots except that she'd been a street waif and thief in Cairo and a rain goddess to some African tribe. Frankly, that's all I ever wanted or needed to know. Both portions of her history were unusual for a superhero and together they really seemed to explain how she became the type of person she became. Isn't that enough? I thought so.

So of course Marvel had to keep tinkering. They can never leave the past alone. Ugh.
