SolarStorm is the son of Sunfire and Storm. He was raised in Japan, mostly in his father's palace, but sometimes in his mother's palace too. He was always treated well by his subjects, and was saddened when his mother lost the throne. But he was happy again when his powers developed, and he could join the X-Men. He saved them from the Skrulls, and he acts in a way to protect himself first, the team 2nd, just like his father.
Sunfire and Storm did not have much in common. Sunfire was one of the most unlikeable people to ever be an X-Man. Storm was completely the opposite, everyone loved her. But they did have one thing in common as of late: they both were running countries. Storm ran Wakanda with her husband, and Sunfire ran Japan. After her husband died and Shuri took the throne, Storm fled to Japan, and told Shiro she admired his perseverance to do the right thing for his country. Soon, Orson was a member of the Japanese royal family.
Orson loved palace life. Everyone was always nice to him, since bad things would happen if they weren't. Orson was a media child for most of his life, and this went to his head. He was always rather of a tightwad. He sometimes talked back to his mother, stating that she should have fought for the throne. But most time, Orson kept his bad intentions to himself. He would always be a disrespectful child in spite of his mother's loving touch. And though everyone thought he was a nice boy, he was actually the nicest devil he could possibly be.
When the new X-Men were founded, SolarStorm was asked to join the team. He didn't even know he had powers, but he refused anyways, saying he had better things to do. After his mother divorced him, and his father died, Orson took control of Japan. But when the rescue squad was formed, Orson was able to leave control of the country for a while, so he decided he could spare a day or two. He never expected that he would stay for good after the Skrulls had been fought off, and he never knew he could destroy planets, or that he would be willing to kill. After this, he decided he'd never kill again, and he started managing Japan and being an on-call X-Man at the same time.
