Hasbro has announced another mutant will be joining the X-MEN Animated Series VHS series of figures. Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a powerful mutant with the ability to control the elements. From lightning, rain, and tornadoes, she is a match for even the most dangerous member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
Storm is now available for pre-order and is $27.99. She will be flying out around the beginning of September 2022. As the name says, Storm will be packaged in a box resembling a VHS box, complete with artwork inspired by the Animated Series.
Munroe is a bit light on accessories. She only comes with a second pair of hands with lightning effects. Oddly, she does not come with a second head with all-white eyes or at least a stand that makes her look like she’s flying.
Wolverine and Jubilee had previously been announced in October. The figures feature paint jobs that make them look like they leaped right out of the ’90s animated television series. Wolverine even comes with some accessories that let you recreate your favorite memes.

The early ’90s saw a lot of focus on Storm as the X-MEN evolved into MARVEL’s powerhouse roster of characters. If you were a kid of that period, you read these comics and collected the trading cards. It was serious business!
