Supergirl: Get your first look at the Red Tornado

The nefarious android, who’ll show up in Supergirl, has been revealed

With Supergirl starting up soon, we’ll be re-introduced to a number of DC villains, the first of which is Red Tornado. He is described by CBS as follows: “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”
