Cloud, “Storm.” “Storm” Cloud was created by E.E. “Doc” Smith (Kimball Kinnison, Richard Seaton) and appeared in three stories in Comet and Astonishing Stories from 1941 to 1942, beginning with “The Vortex Blaster” (Comet, July 1941); the stories were collected in The Vortex Blaster (1960).

Neal “Storm” Cloud is a nucelonicist, a scientist specializing in the study of atomic science. His family is killed because of an atomic vortex, and the heartbroken and enraged Cloud dedicates his life to destroying other vortices. In the course of doing so he also stops wars and drug smugglers. Cloud exists in the same universe as Kimball Kinnison.
