Post Crisis History[edit]

Hi. Doesn't the Crisis effectively negate the Silver age origin story? Did DC produce a new origin for Red Tornado, and if so, should it be added to the article? Many thanks and sorry if I'm being a numpty. Crispin Giles 17:49, 14 December 2005 (UTC)Crispin Giles

Only change is that he didn't dimension-hop - SoM 19:48, 14 December 2005 (UTC)


Aerokinesis? These kineses have gotten out of hand...

I removed the description of RT's strength as being greater than Wonder Woman's. This may have been true at one time, but Wonder Woman's powers have been significantly expanded post-Crisis. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sadaharuo (talkcontribs) 05:44, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Android no more[edit]

Should the headline change from Red Tornado (android) to Red Tornado (John Smith), considering the "body swap"? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jdarryl (talkcontribs) 22:19, 24 February 2007 (UTC).

Healing Factor[edit]

I'm not sure if self-repair equates into a healing factor. In the Tornado's case although the body can repair itself, Tornado exists as a being outside the robotic body. In addition, healing factor seems indicitiive of an organic funtion in my mind; rather than keeping a mechanical system operational. I wanted start a discussion to see if anyone else felt this way.

Fair use rationale for Image:JLACv3.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:JLACv3.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The current picture is extremely poor, we need one with just Red Tornado only. Lots42 (talk) 20:43, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Agree. The uploaded image is pretty big - try just cropping it down to just the character. (Emperor (talk) 21:20, 23 March 2009 (UTC))

Plagiarism from Comic Vine[edit]

While trying to clean up his origin story, I realized that the pre-Crisis section of this article is pretty much a very poorly-paraphrased plagiarism from Comic Vine's Red Tornado article, including sentences that were copied word-for-word and an nearly-identical paragraph structure. I tried to clean up the Champion/Tyrant section, but I don't have time right now to clean up the rest of the plagiarized material. Help, please! Aristophanes68 (talk) 19:55, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Tess Mercer has been turned into the Smallville continuity version of Red Tornado in the closing chapters of the story.[edit]

Just thought it should eventually get mentioned someplace on the page. She had already been turned into an artificial intelligence, then she 3-D printed herself a body or something, and emerged with the Red Tornado's powers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:43, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Red Tornado's template[edit]

When does will Red Tornado get his own set of Supporting characters, allies, antoganists, ongoing publications, "in other media" stuff & locaions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by StickFigure1993 (talkcontribs) 17:07, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
