Supergirl on CBS will star Red Tornado or was it Red Tomato? You decide.

Iddo Goldberg from the television series, Salem and Peaky Blinders, was announced to play the part of DC’s android badass, Red Tornado. He will be playing this pivotal role in CBS’s Supergirl. The costume photos of Iddo Goldberg in full Red Tornado status was just released by Warner Bros. and…I really don’t know what to say about it. According to Warner Bros. last information about Red Tornado, this is what they described him as:

“Red Tornado is 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.”

The comic book and cartoon version of Red Tornado looks perfect, however, I’m questioning this television design. It seriously looks like another Power Rangers villain, with all the added corny bells and whistles. X-Men: Apocalypse recently received a lot of flack for their initial Apocalypse released photos comparing him to Ivan Ooze. However Fox then released an updated picture that finally showed some justice to the characters design. Do you think that Red Tornado will experience this as well once Supergirl is on the air? Let’s all hope so, because right now the design looks like Marvel’s Vision had sex with a tomato and thus this design was born.
