Air Generation and Control: Cyclone designed a costume for himself which contains mechanisms that enable him to accelerate volumes of air up to 300 miles per hour (480 km/h) within a radius of 100 feet (30 m) from his body in the form of tornado-force whirlwinds about himself. He is able to use these whirlwinds to fly, and can use them offensively against opponents.
André Gerard was born in Lyons, France. Formerly a French engineer working for NATO, Gerard had a falling out with his former employees, supposedly related to political decisions over implementing his research, based on the development of a weapon that generates high velocity tornado-like winds. Cyclone took his invention and used it for his own criminal ends, developing his costume and other weapons.
