Storm Shadow II
|This article is about the female ninja. For her male predecessor, see Storm Shadow.|
Storm Shadow is a mysterious ninja working with Doctor X. The leader of the Red Shadows, formed from the remnants of the legendary Arashikage clan, Storm Shadow acts as the bad doctor's bodyguard and second-in-command.
Unlike Doctor X, she really doesn't like Action Man.
When Mercy Gale was revealed as Doctor X and the Chateau was devastated, Storm Shadow and her ninja entourage rendezvoused with Gale in an airship. When Action Man Programme operatives blew up the ship, both were assumed to have died. Nevertheless, they survived and met in the Chateau's ruins to discuss their upcoming plan for the future of the world.
When Action Man was brought to Section Sabine by Major Bludd, Storm Shadow was there alongside her Red Shadows. As Doctor X explained the situation, Storm Shadow threatened and stood guard over Ian; and when he escaped deeper into the moonbase, she and the Red Shadows pursued. Before he could use the M.A.S.S. Device to escape, Storm Shadow pinned him to the wall by stabbing through his hand with her sword; Doctor X reiterated that he was not to be killed — an order that Storm Shadow objected to, as Ian had killed one of her ninja — but before their argument could escalate, Kup, closely followed by Mayday, Blackrock, and the Micronauts, burst through the roof of the moonbase.
The Heliopolis, piloted by Microtron, attempted to intervene on Action Man's behalf, but Storm Shadow responded by fighting it off with Wraith-like tentacles erupting from her arm. When the Ore-13 that had been linked to the Talisman was destabilized, threatening to explode, Storm Shadow evacuated the moonbase through the M.A.S.S. Device alongside Doctor X, Baron Ironblood, and the other Red Shadows.
