Crisis on Infinite Earths #9: Pt. 75
Previously in Crisis on Infinite Earths #8…
As heroes work to repair Red Tornado, the JLA satellite explodes…
In Justice League of America Annual #3, the burning JLA satellite falls to Earth…
Leaguers, old and new, join forces to rescue people from the falling debris.
Kathy Sutton arrives home, turns on the all-day weather station, and receives a message from Red Tornado…
Kathy! I’ve been trying to reach you! You must come to me!
At S.T.A.R. Labs, it’s revealed that the facility has been operating experimental weather-control satellites, but someone… or something… has taken control of them. The same “force” seems to also be controlling the space warps “that’ve been popping up all over!”
Just as the heroes destroy the last satellite, all weather seems to… stop. Suddenly…
Red Tornado has become a true elemental force and the power is going to his head…
You, Superman, boast that you can change the course of mighty rivers… but only to perpetuate a civilization that wantonly denudes the planet! But the “Crisis” that affects the earth – affords an opportunity that may never be equaled! The natural order is in turmoil – giving me power such as I have never known in any of my forms – the power to re-make the world!
Superman collects the physical pieces of Red Tornado’s body from JLA headquarters and Firestorm tries to incorporate them into the angry force. When Kathy temporarily calms Red Tornado, Superman freezes him in a block of ice, which Firestorm transmutes into a “solid metal cage.”
It isn’t enough to contain him, though. Red Tornado escapes and leaves…
