    Storm Front 2 was a pivitol episode in the development of the X-woman Storm. For the first time audiences were able to see the true range of her power, being able to affect the weather system of an entire planet. This episode also documented one of her defining personal characteristics, compassionate. Throughout the X-men series Storm has constantly been portrayed as the team member with the biggest heart, accepting all walks of life and showing no prejudice. Storm Front 2 also followed the acutal comics very closely giving none comic book audiences a peak at what really happened in the pages of marvel comics. This type of portryal in the animated series could only be found in the Phoneix and Dark Phoneix saga's, as all other episodes were new stories created for the cartoon. As this was the last episode of the X-men Animated series created by its original animators, it shows they're true love of X-men lore and their desire to pass on the X-men mythology to a new generation.moreless
