DC’s May “Channel 52” back-up feature (aptly renamed “Channel 2” for its Earth 2 coverage) features a glimpse of the New 52’s Red Tornado.
Guess what! She got DC’s patented New 52 Sexy Makeover™!
It’s disappointing to see one of DC’s only full-figured characters reimagined with the same cookie-cutter body type as the rest. I assume this is a new Red Tornado (I very much doubt there’s supposed to be a skinny Ma Hunkel under that cooking pot) but it’s still part of DC’s larger homogenization of body types. We all remember what the New 52 did to Amanda “The Wall” Waller.
Anyway, here’s a look at the “Channel 52” feature.
You’re right. We probably ought to share in a moment of silence.
