Classic DC comics character Red Tornado will appear on CBS’ upcoming Supergirl series, and now we have our official first look at the character.

Portrayed by Salem actor Iddo Goldberg, Red Tornado is described by the network as “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.”

With the ability to generate powerful winds, the character is known in the comics as a hero, as well as a member of the Justice League. It’s still unknown whether Red Tornado will overcome his programming and become an alley to the Kryptonian heroine.

Goldberg will guest star as both the android and his mad scientist creator in an upcoming episode. We know that Red Tornado has a connection to General Sam Lane, the father of Lois Lane and her sister Lucy (played by Jenna Dewan Tatum on Supergirl).
