DC Comics Super Heroes and Villains Fandex

Coming to me courtesy of the Irredeemable Shag, I'm sharing with you, my friends, the Red Tornado entry from the not-so-brand-new, but new-to-me DC Comics Super Heroes and Villains Fandex. Click on over to Shag's Once Upon a Geek and check out his review of the piece as a whole. Afterwards, come on back, we'll be here waiting for you.

My oldest daughter (and therefore passed along to her sisters, but since lost, naturally) used to have a couple learning games set up very similarly to this. The learning games were simple math and spelling, things of that nature. Admittedly, this is a bit of a far cry from that, but it's the first thing I thought of when I saw this solicited. I have yet to get my grubby paws on a copy, but with Father's Day on the horizon, anything is possible.

I point you to the Aqua-marketplace on Rob Kelly's magnificent Aquaman Shrine to connect yourself to a copy of this bad boy.

Naturally, DC chose to go with a shot of Reddy drawn by Ed Benes from Brad Meltzer's "The Tornado's Path" story. This image is from the foldout poster that popped up in issue #7 (I believe, sound off if I'm wrong here). Interestingly enough, I had Meltzer sign this image in my hardcover copy of "The Tornado's Path" during his recent signing tour for Heroes for My Son.

Back to the Fandex, though. I do like the line, "Red Tornado grew a soul." If only it were so easy.

Thanks again to Shag!
