So it occurs to me that between Young Justice focusing heavily on Red Tornado lately particularly the latest episode it'd be nice to continue my 2 year old old posts of his last mini which introduced his siblings Red Inferno and Red Torpedo (and Red Volcano but he was around a little before the mini).

7 pages from a 22 page story. Sigh. Remember when DC had 22 page stories?


I think they meant Flame On! Right?

Following the prior two issues Tornado and Torpedo head to T.O Morrow to ask about Volcano, who similarly interrogated T.O. 

Torpedo gets vengeful and begins sucking the liquid out of T.O and the guards before Tornado pushes her out of there.


Have to admit, I liked that every member of the Red's had different outlooks on everything. Torpedo wasn't a killer by nature but would lash out if she was angered since she saw no reason not to.

Reddy goes back to T.O and finds out that Volcano's likely going after Inferno to trick him into working for him. But Volcano's already begun his preparations for tricking Inferno into working for him since he knows Seth Aiden is Red Inferno.


Volcano kills everyone in the neighborhood including Seth's parents...


Meanwhile Volcano's begun to test Inferno and get him to be more open about using his powers. He shows the neighborhood HE destroyed and tells Seth that it was Torpedo and Tornado who did it.


The satellite was to be destroyed because Volcano wanted satellitie detection down so that he and Inferno could destroy a military base. With Reddy and Torpedo learning about it after the attack.


Dun dun dun!

I like that they ( Kathy and Traya )can go to Vixen for protection. More or less mention of other heroes.

This is, of course, Red Torpedo #2. #1 was WWII hero, with a one-man sub.

No connection to Ma Hunkel.

The Young Justice cartoon (brilliantly) made Red Torpedo male and Red Inferno female and said that that Red Tornado 1 was, in fact, a robot who didn't know it (the same one as was in the episode). And that the female Red Inferno was Firebrand. A really nice twist.

And thanks to Young Justice I actually care about Red Torndado now. I iwsh the writer didn't have to rack up a body count though.

Loved that mini back then :P
Then again, I'm a big Red Tornado fan, so..

Young Justice has become the place where fans of the DCU pre-New 52 can find the characters and stories they liked. With some tweaks obviously (Dick Grayson looking and acting like Tim and being the youngest of the sidekicks) but not that worse than what the actual comics have been under now under the "DCnU"...

He's not all Tim, the word play, acrobatics, laughing and need for acknowledgement from Bruce (whilst still being very capable) is very Dick Grayson.

Eh, makes sense. The maker didn't need to concern himself with actual anatomy. Interesting that there's only the one female out of the four robots though.

And I love it as well so let's just pretend it is canon. At least a lot more than the DCnU Canon.

Nice homage on the cover to Detective Comics #385.

Why did YJ Bender-Gender Torpedo and Inferno?

To make the robot Red Tornado and Inferno the golden age Red Tornado and Firebrand, two heroes that were male and female respectively, turn out to be humanoid robots.

I meant Torpedo not Tornado.

Golden Age Tornado never pretended to be human. Always a robot.

Why did YJ use Dick and Wally instead of Tim and Bart? Why deage Zatanna? Why make Artemis Crock a half vietnamese blonde superhero and make Cheshire her sister?

The creators are doing what they want. To hell with comic book continuity.

What comic book continuity? There are no rules in the DCnU either!

Listen, in the YJ TV show, Count Vertigo is standing toe-to-toe with the Joker, the Ultra-Humanite and Black fact, is giving orders to them. So, you know....comic continuity isn't really something they're concerned with. :)

Pyrotwilight, where did Red Volcano appear before. I thought this was the first and can't find any other appearances in comicvine.

Comic book supervillains referencing real world horror never sits well with me (cf also Dr Doom weeping at the grounds of the WTC), it cheapens the horror and at the same time, makes the writers look like they were trying too hard. IMHO at least.

I'm assuming Inferno is actually generating some kind of plasma or some other medium for flames to conduct themselves through. There being no air in space and all.
