The Red Tornado is coming to CBS' Supergirl, according to ComicBook. The freshman show has cast Iddo Goldberg (Peaky Blinders, Salem) as both the android Red Tornado and his creator. scientist T.O. Morrow.
In comic books, Red Tornado and T.O. Morrow were two distinct characters, however if this reported casting is accurate then Supergirl may be creating an added connection between the two.
ComicBook's report states that in Supergirl, Morrow will create the Red Tornado for the U.S. Army but when the android gains sentience, it becomes a threat to National City -- putting him in the crosshairs of Supergirl.
Supergirl debuts on CBS October 26.
