When the alien elemental being Ulthoon, who consisted of a good personality (the Tornado Champion) and an evil personality (the Tornado Tyrant), was defeated by Adam Strange on Earth-One's planet Rann, he contemplated morality and agreed that good was greater than evil. He decided to split himself into his two personalities, who then proceeded to immediately battle each other, and the Tornado Tyrant emerged victorious. The defeated Champion wandered the cosmos until it discovered an android body created by T.O. Morrow. He took control of the body, but during the process it short-circuited and erased Tornado Champion's memory, leading to him re-identifying himself as the eventual Justice League member Red Tornado.
