Storm/Doom OTP! (not dial-up friendly)
This is from Uncanny X-Men #145-147, by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum.
Xavier recruits Polaris, Banshee, Havok, and Iceman to rescue the hostages, while the other X-Men go to get Arcade from Doom.
While Storm's with Doom, the other X-Men sneak in and try finding Arcade. However, Arcade's cell is empty, and they are attacked by some of Doom's armored-guards.
The X-Men defeat Doom's guards, and...
The other X-Men are placed in traps inside the castle. Meanwhile, Polaris, Banshee, Havok, and Iceman successfully rescue the hostages.
The X-Men start to escape from Doom's traps.
John Byrne would later have Doom claim that the Doom in this arc was a Doombot (in Fantastic Four #258).
However, since Doom destroyed the Doombot as part of a lesson he was teaching Kristoff (as opposed to being by himself), it's possible he was just lying about it.
Doom and Storm's relationship was later brought up in Steven A. Roman's Chaos Engine trilogy. In Book I, Doom uses the Cosmic Cube to change reality and take over the world. In the new reality, Storm is his wife.
Here's an illustration from the novel, by Mark Buckingham.
Here's the scene where the X-Men discussed Storm's relationship with Doom, after finding out they were married in the new reality.
