I was really, really excited about what Ororo Munroe's alternate
costumes will be and finally, it has been unveiled. But I wasn't that
happy because Storm's all-red alternate costume is no longer available. :
Anyways, here's a brief comment on each alternate costume of my favorite comic character of all time. Starting with:
Black and Gold
= The colors that are often used to paint Storm's costume. The red gem on her costume is still present. This
is Storm's recent costume which at times also colored on different
shades of blue and gold. This alternate costume also reminds me of
Storm's first appearance in Giant-Sized X-Men #1 on May of 1975.

Or we can also say white and gold for this alternate costume. The
images on the right was the time when the Uncanny X-men were
unquestionably the greatest and most popular team worldwide... the 90's!
Of course we cannot forget the times when Storm talks a lot to summon
her powers in Uncanny X-Men: The Animated Series. I feel like wanting to
watch the cartoon series all over again.
This pretty much reminds me of her being the best ( and the most versatile ) character in Marvel vs Capcom 2.

= Haven't really seen much from Storm wearing her recent costume in
black and white color but what really made this different from her other
alternate costumes is the white pattern on her cape, the design which
the late Michael Turner used for drawing Storm as being a temporary
member of the Fantastic Four for cover arts on issues: The New Fantastic
The New Fantastic Four #544-550: http://www.comicvine.com/fantastic-four-the-new-fantastic-four/49-38728/ Violet and Black
Most people might be surprised that Storm actually wore this color at
some point. Clearly, this wasn't a popular color costume from Storm, but
for anybody who went to Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando,
Florida, this is not new. There's a large image of Storm wearing in
violet and black, welcoming you to take a tea-cup ride called Storm
Force Accelatron, and help her beat the master of magnetism, Magneto.

surely can't help but sing MVC2's very addictive song: Wanna take you
for a ride, tenenenet, tenenenet! (a million times) : )
Blue and White
= Inspired from when Storm became an Asgardian Goddess in Asgardian
Wars, the kind of shade of blue they've used make Storm more beautiful
to bask on. How I wish they made her carry the stormcaster which
transforms her into a Thunder Goddess.

Storm w/ the stormcaster vs Thor in an extremely short battle: X-Men: To Serve and Protect #3 http://www.comicvine.com/x-men-to-serve-and-protect-x-dudes-part-3-storm-front-invisible-and-youll-miss-it/37-259133/ Blue and Gold:
was a time when all the x-men wore the blue and gold x-uniforms, and a
red belt with an x-symbol indicating their membership as an x-man. The
colors do look pretty on Storm's recent costume and reminds me a lot of
her on her gold alternate costume in X-Men vs Street Fighter and Marvel
vs Capcom 2 as a goddess-tier.
interested to use the new alternate costumes, though I really would have
wanted the all-red alternate costume to be available still. Right now, I
could say i might main the violet and black costume. But it can
But what I'm most excited about is her mohawk
alternate costume, available as a DLC. This kind of Storm look is pure
awesomeness for me.
