The Storms are an old money family who have gradually been transferring their assets into a portfolio of property and investments. Today, the Storm family has a range of investments ranging from property in Manhattan to shares in various companies spread across the world. While the scions of the family had always been happy to join the family business something changed with Baxter Storm, great-grandfather of Johnny and Susan Storm, Baxter had always wanted to make his way through life as an artist. In particular, he had a passion for drawing; however bowing to tradition and the wishes of his parents, he joined the family business where he showed a flair for risky yet successful investments. However, Baxter never stopped wishing that he had had the confidence to stand up to his father and choose his own path through life. When his grandson, Franklin, approached him with a similar conundrum, Baxter chose to advise Franklin to follow his heart. Although his father was unhappy at the decision Franklin decided to strike out for his doctorate in physics, and after collecting several more degrees, Franklin went on to work for the government in Washington where he met his wife, Mary, also a doctor working for the government.
Franklin and Mary had two children, Johnny and Susan, and were living a comfortable and happy life. However, Franklin and Mary both wanted more. For Franklin, this meant quitting his job and using his contacts to create the Baxter Group, a civilian and defense contractor. While making this move, Mary was killed in a car accident, leaving Franklin to raise their two children alone. Or almost alone - although relations between Franklin and his father are still on the colder side of cordial, the Storm family patriarch and his wife have proven to be unable to resist the charms of their grandchildren and delight in spoiling them when the children visit. Of course, that all might change now Johnny had moved in with them as a result of Arthur Molekevic's attack.
