Origin

A force of nature native to the planet Rann, the sentient tornado challenged Adam Strange and attempted to conquer the hero's adopted planet as the Tornado Tyrant.


After nearly being destroyed, the Tornado Tyrant observed the example of Strange and his allies in the Justice League, deciding to become a force of good as the Tornado Champion.


The duality of the Tornado Champion caused a schism, and it split into two separate beings, forming a new Tornado Tyrant. The Champion would defeat its evil self.


The criminal scientist T. O. Morrow created an android to defeat the Justice League, which the Tornado Champion was convinced to enter, and subsequently lost its memory. The Tornado Champion would regain its sense of self and save the Justice League and Justice Society from T. O. Morrow's evil plans as the Red Tornado.
