WHO: "Storm Shadow is a fictional character from the G.I. Joe comics series and television shows. The character is best known for his history with fellow ninja Snake-Eyes. Throughout their history, the duo have been everything to one another from the bitterest of enemies, to the most loyal of friends (and blood brothers) who would fight and die for one another."

"Storm Shadow's real name is Thomas S. Arashikage (トーマス・嵐影) (Arashi = "Storm" and kage = "shadow" in Japanese). Best known as the Cobra Commander's ninja bodyguard and assassin at times, he is the only member of the team to change sides several times, conflicted in loyalties between Cobra, G.I. Joe, and his long relationship with his sword-brother Snake-Eyes. He usually wears a white uniform and mask. When out of his uniform, he is shown to be Japanese, with black hair and dark eyes." [wiki]

WHO-IS: In G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra; South Korean actor Lee Byung-hun plays the adult Storm Shadow.

Peep the Storm Shadow poster-image, to add the previously released ones HERE.


TRE-IMPRESSION: I am utterly befuddled at the costume-choice for this particular ninja tho. Lost in limbo between a "Aristocratic-rich-man-playing-at-ninja" and "Confused-popstar-who-lost-his-memory-while-enroute-to-a-concert-performance". I am confused about the coat-tails tho, like, seriously. hhmm.
