"STORM: THE ARENA," part 1 (of 4), features Storm as you’ve never seen her before in the beginning of a special super-sized, weekly story arc. Despite the reservations of her teammates, Storm goes to Japan alone in search of the slaver, Tullamore Voge, with connections to Elias Bogan. But instead, with the wild Yukio at her side, Ororo finds herself in an underground mutant fight club in Tokyo. How will she fare, and what secrets does the fight club hold?
It should be noted that the underground mutant fight club depicted herein is not Alexander Flynn's gladiators from The Beauty & The Beast limited series and issues of The New Mutants.
