Welcome to another Art Roundup, a column in which we spotlight a different comics character each week with some great fan-created art, crafts, costumes, toys, and more. This week we’re celebrating Storm, one of the most well-known members of the X-Men and Marvel’s stable in general.

I’m gonna get this party started with a pair of super cool custom LEGO figures by Jeff Reid. You can buy these.
