One of our favorite members of the Justice League will appear on Supergirl later this month. We discussed the pantheon of DC Comics’ classic superhero team earlier this week here at borg.com, noting Red Tornado was yet to make an appearance. Ask and ye shall receive, as they say.
Red Tornado is an android with enormous power. In the comic books, Red Tornado was originally a villain, who turned hero and ended up for several years with the Justice League. As with the comics, it appears that Supergirl’s version of Red Tornado will start as a key villain, but may yet turn from bad to good. CBS refers to Red Tornado as “a military cyborg commissioned by Lucy Lane’s father, General Sam Lane”.
Iddo Goldberg will don the Red Tornado costume in the series. Here are some artist’s versions of the red superhero:
Get your first look at Red Tornado in action Monday, November 30, 2015, at 7 p.m. Central on Supergirl.
