Powers: The Red Tornado is a specially designed android with the ability to spin the lower half of his body at tremendous speeds. This allows him both to fly, and to create a powerful cyclonic wind. He can also create these tornado-like blasts with his arms and direct them at his enemies.
Weaknesses: The Red Tornado’s android body is not invulnerable. If a villain can get past his Tornado Blasts, or catch him off guard, the Red Tornado may be defeated.
Enemies: T.O. Morrow – the Red Tornado’s creator – also known as Tomorrow. The Future Man.
Red Tornado was supposedly one of the most popular DC super heroes in the mid-'80's, but I don't recall seeing him, hearing of him in the stores, or owned by kids in school. But, just the same, the figure did become a favorite of mine! Yes, this would've been one I would've liked if I would have found it! The art work on the card and the spinning action was pretty cool, too! I bought a C-9 loose/complete figure from Zapp! Comics for around $34.00 in 2001. Red Tornado really should've been on the Super Powers cartoons. A C-8/9 carded figure runs between $65.00 to $86.00. A C-8/9 loose/complete figure runs between $29.00 to $40.00....[See More]
