> Oh wow. One of Marvel's most powerful female characters and now decades later they're saying it took having sex with a man for her to control her powers?

According the Storm mini series (which "expanded" the Marvel Team-Up #100 issue which had Storm and Black Panther). To be fair, it wasn't as if her having sex with T'Challa (at the age of 12 or 13 mind you) was the ONLY thing that lead to her controling her weather powers, but it certainly was implied that if not for losing her virginity and, more importantly, her and T'Challa young love, that she wouldn't have discovered how to control of her powers at such a young age. Basically, they were trying to make a cooralation between her growing sexual maturity via her young romance with the young T'Challa and her gaining mastery over her mutant powers since those too develop during puberty--but even so, it's came across contrived as all get out. She even said to T'Challa after their little romp in the forest whether she looked more like a woman now. (GAG!)
