The DCEU's Newest Hero Admits The JSA Is Out Of Their League

Warning! Spoilers for Black Adam — The Justice Society Files: Cyclone #1 by DC Comics

One of the newest stars of the DCEU is admitting that she might not be on the same level as some of the greatest heroes on Earth, specifically the JSA. DC Comics is taking a closer look at Cyclone, who will appear in the upcoming live-action Black Adam film, and in a new one-shot, the hero makes her debut in canon for the first time. However, Cyclone isn’t ready to call herself a great hero as, despite her incredible powers, she doesn’t think she belongs alongside the JSA.

DC Comics is releasing a series of one-shot comics focusing on the heroes that will appear in the upcoming Black Adam film as part of the new Justice Society of America. Readers already met Hawkman in Black Adam – The Justice Society Files: Hawkman #1, where the hero battled Gentlemen Ghost. Additionally, each one-shot, which will also have issues focusing on Atom Smasher and Doctor Fate, features backups focusing on Adriana Tomaz. Next up in the one-shots is Cyclone, who admits she’s not quite ready to be on the same level as the JSA.

Black Adam — The Justice Society Files: Cyclone #1 by DC Comics will focus on Maxine Hunkel, the granddaughter of the first Red Tornado, who first appeared in Geoff Johns, Dale Eaglesham’s, and Alex Ross’s Justice Society of America. The DCEU prelude, written by Cavan Scott, Maria Luara Sanapo, Arif Prianto, and Becca Carey, the story introduces the DCEU’s version of Cyclone, played by Quintessa Swindell. In the preview, Cyclone daydreams about joining the JSA, drawing Black Adam and Doctor Fate as a child – including herself in the drawings.

Cyclone’s origin is explained when Maxine reveals she was infected by nanites by a crazy scientist that gave her wind manipulation powers and control. While she dreams about being a hero, Cyclone admits that if the JSA were still around, they’d be “so out of my league. A million times.” Cyclone quips she needs to work on her banter if she joined the JSA after asking a family if they were OK after a fiery explosion. The hero then springs into action against a superpowered man throwing cars.

While Cyclone might not believe she’s good enough to be part of the Justice Society of America, the hero is about to have a trial by fire, as she’s set to join a new version of the team in the upcoming Black Adam film. Cyclone might not have the confidence now, but despite her hesitations, her dream will soon come as she will fight beside the JSA in the upcoming live-action DCEU film. Black Adam — The Justice Society Files: Cyclone #1 arrives in comic book stores on Tuesday.
