GI Joe Retaliaion and Storm Shadow
GI Joe: Retaliation is an action movie being released in 2012 as a sequel to G.I. Joe: the Rise of the Cobra. In the movie the GI Joe Team will conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow, and Firefly who currently serve under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is last seen in disguise as the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors and wipes most of them out in a sneak attack. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra's control, with warheads headed towards innocent populaces. Badly beaten, outnumbered, and outgunned the Joes make a desperate plan to expose the truth and stop Cobra from taking over the world.
Storm Shadow Bio
Storm Shadow is a fictional character from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy, comic books and cartoon series. He is best known as the Cobra Commander's ninja bodyguard, and for his history with fellow ninja Snake Eyes. Throughout their history, he has changed sides several times; conflicted in loyalties between Cobra, G.I. Joe, and his blood brother, Snake Eyes.
In his original A Real American Hero incarnation, Storm Shadow's real name is Thomas S. Arashikage which means Shadow in Japanese, a Japanese American. Storm Shadow served in the U.S. Army special operations group along with Snake Eyes, and later invited him to train as a ninja with his family in Japan. The duo have been everything to one another from the bitterest of enemies, to the most loyal of friends, who would fight and die for one another.
Storm Shadow can trace his family history through thirty generations of assassins. He is an 8th degree black belt in several martial arts, and can endure unimaginable amounts of hardship and pain. Storm Shadow moves with blinding speed, can scale sheer walls with bare hands and feet, and is an expert with a long bow, Samurai sword, throwing stars and nunchaku sticks. 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.
In 2007, the character's creator revealed an alternate name for the character in the solo series Storm Shadow. His tattoo is a hexagram of the I Ching named Already Fording.
