Jade Cargill arrived on AEW Dynamite this week for the finals of the TBS Championship tournament sporting new ring gear inspired by Storm of the X-Men comics. Cargill eventually won the match by hitting a rope Jaded on Ruby Soho, becoming the first TBS Champion in AEW history.
While Storm is one of the signature members of the Marvel Comics mutant team, it's been a few years since she's been portrayed in live-action. Halle Berry famously portrayed her in the original X-Men trilogy in the 2000s as well as Days of Future Past in 2014. A younger version, portrayed by Alexandra Shipp, appeared in both X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019).

In an interview with Vanity Fair last month, Berry left the door open to play the weather-wieldling mutant again if given the chance.
"I would absolutely return to it, it's a beloved character, I loved playing Storm, and people love Storm. So, I would absolutely, you know, if we could find a version that would make sense, or a storyline that would make sense, I would absolutely do that, for sure," Berry explained.
