X-Men '97 - STORM!

Marvel Epic Hero Series - X-Men '97 5-Pack (Target Exc) Storm - Hasbro 2023

I've been eagerly watching each episode of X-Men '97 on Disney+ since it debuted a month ago. Leading up to the first episode, I watched every episode of the original X-Men the Animated Series (which I had never completed before) and was excited to see how the adventures of all my favorite characters would continue. Without giving any spoilers, Storm's storyline was shockingly dramatic and upsetting (but by episode six it was all better) and I'm hoping she gets plenty of screentime in the final four episodes. Hasbro's new Epic Hero Series is a long overdue reboot of their 3.75" Marvel Universe line (2009-2015). (At least that's the way I view them). Regardless, it's nice to have the basic-level figures of all their different media franchises (Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and now X-Men '97) in a consistent scale. I only wish they were produced with more regularity and with more properties. At the very least I would love to see a Jean Grey and maybe a Jubilee. Let's check out Storm below!

Storm comes with a removable cape and a lightning effect.

She has a port on her back to anchor the cape. The two yellow rings on the cape can clip to her wrists.

This figure was also available with the "X-Men Team X-Jet" vehicle playset.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the ladies from this Epic Hero 5-Pack: Storm and Rogue.

And all 5 characters from this set. This Target-exclusive 5-Pack is the only way to get Gambit.

Here are the boys with their accessories.

And here is Storm with her 3.75" Marvel Universe Secret Wars figure from 2010.
