Why does Storm look like she's 12?

Because she is. Apparently, this is the real Storm and the grown-up is an impostor. I think.

In Claremont's original run Storm was de-aged into a child by Nanny, before being re-aged after she was captured by the Genoshan forces. I'm guessing Claremont's going to reveal that Storm was never really re-aged, and the adult Storm is an impostor or something.

I remembered the de-aging thing, I didn't realize this was Storm taken from that point. I had thought maybe, but I didn't remember her being young for very long. It was around the time of the X-Tinction Agenda crossover, right?

Hell I even used that plot as a way to introduce a werecat Storm who would embody Cockrum's original concept of the character as a feline shifter. I just had forgotten Storm had stayed de-aged for any length of time.

Whats this about a feline shifter concept?

When Cockrum originally designed the character that was to become Storm, she was going to be a catwoman something like the later Catseye. That's when he was sketching them intending them to be Legion characters before he jumped to Marvel. When they ended up being dug out and turned into X-Men, her concept changed.

Is that why she's had those creepy eyes for like, ever?
