First Look: Red Tornado from Supergirl Revealed!

DC Entertainment and CBS have released our first official look at Iddo Goldberg as Dr. T.O. Morrow aka Red Tornado from the upcoming TV series Supergirl which you can check out below!


In the series, the character is officially described as follows: “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the US Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”

Created by Gardner Fox and Dick Dillin, Red Tornado made his first full appearance in 1968’s “Justice League of America” #64, however the character’s origins can be traced back even further to a 1960 issue of “Mystery in Space.” In that title’s 61st issue, readers were introduced to Ulthoon, called “The Tornado Tyrant” of the planet Rann. Ulthoon’s consciousness was merged with a terrestrial android (constructed by T.O. Morrow) to become the Justice League’s Red Tornado.

Hailing from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions (who also produce the hit DC Comics series “Arrow” and “The Flash” for The CW), Supergirl is based on the characters from DC Comics and centers on Kara Zor-El, who comes to Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. After many years hiding her abilities, she joins the ranks of her cousin Superman to become the hero she was meant to be.

The pilot episode of Supergirl was written by Ali Adler (“No Ordinary Family”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). They will also executive produce along with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV.

Supergirl will premiere on Monday, October 26 at a special time (8:30-9:30pm) before it moves to its regular time slot on Monday, November 2 from 8:00-9:00pm.
