  • Key Powers: Whirlwind. See notes on Thor's North Winds, which is a similar power.

Powers: (at Skill Level 10)
  • Blitz (9 Skill Points, 33 Energy).
    • Radial lightning attack. Does extra damage against slowed enemies.
    • 54-60 Electricity Damage.
    • Comment:
      • Iceman and Thing has various powers that can slow enemies.
      • Probably won't score extra damage against enemies slowed by time-slowing powers.
  • Chain Lightning (14 Skill Points, 16 Energy per second)
    • Lightning shoots from Storm's hands and chains from enemy to enemy.
    • 44-49 Electricity Damage per second on initial target.
    • 17-19 Electricity Damage per second on up to 6 additional targets.
    • Comment:
      • It does not appear that a single target can be hit by more than one chain.
      • Works like a rapid-tap attack power on all targets as they are continuously interrupted, which makes this one of the best rapid-tap ranged attack powers as it can simultaneously neutralize seven targets.
  • Conduction (12 Skill Points, 100 Energy, 80 seconds)
    • Team gets Electricity damage to melee attacks and +80% elemental resistance.
    • +17% Electricity Damage
  • Hail Storm (11 Skill Points, 33 Energy, 7 seconds)
    • Attaches a hail storm to an enemy that can damage nearby enemies for a time.
    • 54-60 Cold Damage per second on primary target.
    • 17-19 Cold Damage per second on targets near the primary target.
    • Comment:
      • Theoretically powerful if you are in tightly-packed melee and can set this up on different targets since they could then overlap their hail storms and damage could exceed 100 per second.
  • Lightning Strike (16 Skill Points, 24 Energy)
    • Casts lightning bolt down on enemy.
    • 139-154 Energy Damage.
    • Comment:
      • Bolt starts on top of target and strikes down. You can therefore use this power from behind cover.
  • Whirlwind (16 Skill Points, 17 Energy)
    • Creates a powerful wind vortex that lifts and throws objects and enemies about. Hold to increase radius and maintain power.
    • 58-64 Wind Damage per second.
    • Comment:
      • Similar to Thor's North Winds.
  • Whirlwind Armor (16 Skill Points, 100 Energy, 80 seconds)
    • Whirlwind that absorbs damage and damages enemies near her. Prematurely ends once it has absorbed its damage limit.
    • Absorb 80 damage.
    • 44-49 Wind Damage per second.
    • Comment:
      • If you can do without this power, you might want to skip it and take Whirlwind instead. You won't get the shielding effect, but Whirlwind renders melee enemies unable to attack you anyway.
      • On the other hand, like other damage aura powers, it will work while you are blocking, so you can potentially take down bosses by activating this power and blocking until the damage aura destroys them.
      • Bosses cannot be trapped and this power does no damage on bosses.
  • Thunder Struck (XTreme)
    • Radial lightning attack.
    • 68-75 Electricity Damage, x2 against slowed, stunned, and frozen enemies.
