First Appearance: JLX Unleashed!#1 (June, 1997)

Powers/Abilities: As a synthezoid, the Red Vision can survive attacks that would kill an ordinary human being.  Since being possessed by a disembodied air elemental, it seems as if Red Vision can manipulate the air around him for a variety of effects.


A synthetic man created by Will Magnus to be his secret weapon against the Judgment League: Avengers, the Red Vision was intended to join the crime-fighting organization as a new member and then provide Will Magnus with secret information about the other members that would lead to their defeat.  But Magnus' plans were foiled when the disembodied spirit of an air elemental took the soulless form as its own, transforming the synthezoid into a powerful force for good.

(JLX Unleashed! (bts)) - In desperate need of repairs, Red Vision was brought to the JLX by Blue Jacket and Wonder-Gold (his fellow Judgment League: Avengers teammates) for a much-needed tune-up .

Marvel characters are listed in regular, or bold black type.
DC characters are listed in bold blue type.
Amalgam characters are listed in bold purple type.

In case you're confused, Amalgam Comics didn't really exist beyond those seen in the few DC/Marvel cross-over. The titles you don't recognize are amalgams of similar Marvel and DC comics--Snood.

Amalgam Universe


The Amalgam Comics Trading Card Set (Card#47) refers to a Vision / Red Tornado amalgam by the name of Crimson Whirlwind while the JLX UNLEASHED#1 letter column refers to a Vision / Red Tornado amalgam by the name of Red Vision.  I have gone on the assumption that these characters are one in the same (the Amalgam Universe is cluttered enough already!).

If you like the Amalgam stuff, Skullogeist recommends these two sites:


Also assume that the Amalgam characters have no other connection to any others than whom they are Amalgamated, unless specifically mentioned.

Red Vision is an amalgam of:

            The Vision of Earth-616, Victor Shade, @ Avengers (vol. I)#57

            Red Tornado of the mainstream DC Universe, John Smith, @ Justice League of America (vol. I)#64
