  1. Soon to be joined by Red Jalapeno, Red Sombrero, Red Potato and Red Fellatio – the most eager android of all!

  2. First Red Volcano now Red Torpedo. Can’t wait for the next one.

    Her design could have been better though. The gloves she’s wearing IMO don’t work for an android and a symbol or some finer details could have been added.

  3. @DMC:

    The deal with the Red Torpedo outfit is that it’s the original Silver Age Red Tornado getup. Goofy gloves, no iconic symbol and all. (Well, okay, the solid lit collar is new.) If the design were “better”, it would defeat the costume’s purpose.

  4. Any chance Wildfire will show up, since it’s now been established that he’s using John’s android body? (Or has that revelation been completely dropped from continuity?)

    “Okay, got that reference but did the headpiece have to look so much like a vibrator?”

    …. Dude. What did you think a “red torpedo” WAS???? (I hope that makes somebody besides me laugh…)

    “Why has an android have to have big boobs?”

    Storyline reason: She was invented by a lonely, lonely scientist.
    Real-world reason: She was invented by a lonely….. Ah, you guys can finish the joke on your own, I have faith in y’all. :D
