LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Teases Team Up With Golden and Silver Age Heroes

Legends of Tomorrow is raising the hero show bar in a big way for fans of DC comics. io9 reports that some pictures DC linked on their instagram account actually represent one silver age and three golden age heroes whom the legends will be teaming up with in the near future. Looks like the legends will soon be teaming up with Sgt. Rock, Hourman, Sandman, and Ma Hunkel...who was the original Red Tornado.

Forget That Old Surplus MiG, Someone Needs To Buy This Very Lightly Used Tornado F2A

Forget That Old Surplus MiG, Someone Needs To Buy This Very Lightly Used Tornado F2A

It is always interesting to see what surplus military hardware ends up on the private market. While browsing aircraft classified ads I came across this mint condition, swing-wing Tornado F2A fighter-interceptor for sale. I have never seen one of these beauties on the market, so I had to contact the seller to get the low-down.

The Evolution of a Fighter: A Conversation With the Tiny Tornado

The Evolution of a Fighter: A Conversation With the Tiny Tornado

I watched UFC 194 for the same reason that everyone else did, to see Conor McGregor take the crown from Jose Aldo, that he boldly predicted he would get. The Notorious One was the draw that night, but as it inched toward pay-per-view time I flipped on the TV for the preliminary bouts on Fox and found myself watching Tecia Torres, aka the Tiny Tornado, fighting Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, who was clearly the much larger woman in this strawweight bout. At first glance I thought the little...

Find of the Day: A 4500 R32

The first generation R32 really needs no introduction around these parts, so we’ll just go ahead and skip it.  Couple their well-earned reputation with the surprisingly graceful aging of the Mk4 platform, and it really should come as no surprise that these cars still command a premium.  So with that in mind, for someone with an abundance of time, know-how and patience, this Tornado Red example just might be the best 00 they ever spend.

Iowa dog meets all top presidential candidates

NORTHWOOD, Iowa (KIMT) — He may not be old enough to vote — unless you count his age in dog years — but an 8-year-old German Sheppard has a very important job when he’s at a campaign event.

“We got a call saying that there are going to be some presidential candidates around the area and they need some assistance with an explosive dog,” says Worth County Sheriff Jay Langenbau.

The reason “Tornado” is travelling across North Iowa is to keep the public safe. Not many have...

Supergirl Casts Young Superman; First Look at the White Martians

Over the course of the show’s 10-episode existence, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and her alter ego Kara Danvers have faced down all kinds of trouble. Between dealing with a shockingly jealous rival (Livewire), testing an anti-Kryptonian cyborg (Red Tornado), ending a terrorist threat, and dealing with her overbearing mother (played by Helen Slater), it’s a wonder Kara’s still in one super-piece.

Since she decided to embrace her powers and become Supergirl, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) has fought villain after villain. She’s flexed her physical strength along the way but has also grown emotionally. This evolution was highlighted in particular in “Red Faced,” when she faced Red Tornado and showed off a new side. “I can watch that scene with Melissa at the end of that episode, like, all day,” Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of Supergirl, said at the Television...

A Novel Way to Teach Kids About Engineering

One recent morning, at a public school in Malden, Massachusetts, north of Boston, teams of third graders rushed around programming sensors on computers, wiring them to motors, digging into bins of Legos and gears, and rummaging through boxes of paper towel rolls, egg cartons, and pipe cleaners. Their mission was to protect a baby turtle from a dog—a beloved, mischievous black Lab named Tornado, the title character of a novel they had read for class.

The fictional dog is named after a...

This Link Figma is so dang good

I wasn't sure the cutesy Nendoroid Link could be topped, but this Figma based on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is utterly wonderful. The classic look is my favorite to this day.

When the toy becomes available this summer in Japan, it'll be offered in two versions.

The basic package costs 4,630 yen and includes some accessories, but not all of them. To get the Tornado Rod, Hookshot, Maiamai, and everything else, you'll need to order the DX edition, which will be sold...
