One of the two most dangerous men on the face of the planet, Storm Shadow was once a master of the Arashikage Ninja clan. Now, he sells his arcane skills to the evil forces of Cobra in order to pursue his twisted plan for revenge against his former sword brother Snake Eyes. Ninjas are mystic warriors, spies, master swordmen, acrobats, conjurors, and tricksters. They can do all sort of amazing things - or at least seem to do them, because Ninja's prime directive is embodied in a major percept of the ancient warrior sage Sun Tsu, who said," All warfare is based on deception." This should give Cobra pause to consider the loyalty of Storm Shadow and ponder the question, "What does he really want?"
