The Red Tornado Saga: Chapter 21

Prior to the proverbial you-know-what hitting the fan, Aquaman and Red Tornado chat:


DC Comics Presents #42 is a strange team-up between Superman and the Unknown Soldier. However, when the Man of Steel goes to the JLA satellite for assistance, he finds only Red Tornado, who explains that when he arrived, the other heroes were gone…
