Fictional character biography

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. Like many criminal masterminds in Spider-Man comics, he decided to form a gang and capture J. Jonah Jameson, the owner of the Daily Bugle, and like so many criminal masterminds who follow this plan, he was defeated by Spider-Man. He also kidnapped Joseph "Robbie" Robertson, but was again defeated by Spider-Man.

He was subsequently broken out of prison by the Masked Marauder and employed by the Nefaria Family of the Maggia as an enforcer. He was sent to kill Spider-Man and Moon Knight, but was defeated by Moon Knight. He was doing relatively well for himself, in spite of his defeats at the hands of Spider-Man. Concerned over the deaths of various costumed villains by the vigilante Scourge organization, Cyclone attended a meeting at the "Bar with No Name" in Medinah County, Ohio, to deal with the Scourge and was shot to death by a Scourge agent posing as the bartender. Gerard's DNA was later used by Arnim Zola to create a proto-husk. This proto-husk attacked and was killed by Deadpool.

Powers & Abilities

The original Cyclone was a man with gifted intelligence, with a Masters degree in mechanical engineering. He designed a costume for himself which contained mechanisms that enabled 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 was able to use these whirlwinds to fly, and could use them offensively against opponents.
