    Late 20s to early 30s is ideal for Storm, assuming that actress would play the role for 20 years.

    X1 came out in 2000 and is set in the 'not too distant future.'

    "Not too distant future" for First Class and its era. It's not a "too distant future" from a 1962 perspective, indeed.
    Cyclops was 18 years old in 1983, as proved by Apocalypse. This means that the events of X-Men Origins, where Cyclops was (also) 18 years old, occurred 15 years before X-Men 1 and X2.
    Rounding it up: 1999.

    The only way to set X-Men 1 in 2003/2005 or so is disregarding X-Men Origins as part of the main universe and assuming that it's an alternate universe. The debate is open.

    Logic. Brain. Mind.

    X-Men was released in 2000. So the viewers at that time (and today) and couldn't possibly think 1999 for a 2000 film set in the not too distant future.

    If it doesn't add up to Origins: Wolverine, it is called a continuity inconsistency/error. Honestly the people behind these films didn't think about a lot of these things.

    It doesn't matter. The early story of the XCM X-Men starts in 1962 (FC) and progresses until 1983 (Origins). That's our "retconned" point of view.
    Also, Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix officially established that Jean Grey was born in 1966.
    The prologue of The Last Stand is set in 1980 (Jean is 13/14 years old), The Last Stand occurs in 2000.

    Even if they made some tiny continuity mistakes, we ourselves can fill the gaps... and everything works just fine.

    Thats your point of view. We should go back to discussing MCU Storm.

    MCU Storm must be 33. Wise and skilled.

    I'm 33, wise and skilled too. It doesn't need to be an eXact age.

    LOL, I wasn't being literal about the age. Thirty and something. World-weary, skilled, wise and smart. We need a second in command!

    She could be a leader right from the first film! The leader of X-Men Gold!

    I have two choices for Ororo depending on age range/direction

    Older-- Jayme Lawson (25) 'The Woman King'

    Younger -- Shahadi Wright Joseph (17) 'Us'

    (And yes, it's important that they cast a dark-skinned actress)

    I don't know where did you get Strike Force. But I meant a X-Men squad in which she's the leader / first in command.

    Blue Strike Force and Gold Strike Force, the two teams of X-Men #1 (October 1991) and Uncanny X-Men #281.

    I entered comics just as Cyclops' Blue Team and Storm's Gold Team became a thing, so that's a strong foundation for me right there.

    Would be eXciting if we see that on Marvel Studios' X-Men.

    Got to be one of the most popular sub-team arrangements of the X-Men and then the 91 issue bringing everyone together was around the height of X-Men popularity. Would give a lot to get back to those days. :D Imagine X-Men are as popular around the world after a few years of MCU X-Men as they were in comics at that time!

    WTF
    Rewatch First Class
    In Cerebro sequence she is not à 3 years old baby but a teenager or almost
    However i dont believe they was Scott and Ororo in this sequence
    We Know they are born in 60s in Foxverse. It cant be them in 1962. They Just wanted to joke us by putting some kids lookig like familiar characters

    For Mcu Storm i hope her uniform Will be based on her 2019 uniform comics
    I like this Xsuit!!! The one we saw during X-Men disassembled and debut House of X

    No. The other "cameos" looked like teenagers. She looked like a kid. Trust me.

    Storm is a teenager in 1983. So shes not born yet in 1962
    Nobody confirmed that was Storm in first class
