(Marvel Comics Presents#97/4) - An unnamed man hung around at the Bar With No Name wearing the famous Cyclone outfit. A fight broke out between other villains because Ringmaster was seemingly cheating in a poker game. The new Cyclone took the chance to show his fighting skills and attacked Ringmaster. Angar the Screamer used his power to knock all villains out and Cyclone was no exception. He never learned that Impossible Man posing as an Ace of Spades was responsible for the fight.
(Silver Sable#21 (fb) - BTS) - Cyclone got an armor with cool powers from Justin Hammer and a job as one of Hammer's agents.
(Silver Sable#21) - Cyclone was sent out together with some other agents (Afterburner, Beetle, Blacklash, Blizzard, Boomerang, Spymaster) to help Latisha's thugs against Silver Sable and her Wild Pack. Together with his partners he surrounded Sable and her team.
(Silver Sable#22) - Cyclone used his cyclone producing gloves to throw rubble at Sable and her team. Sable's Intruders entered the scene and Cyclone tried his best to stay in the fight.

Cyclone retreated with Beetle and the others when Larry Arnold started shooting at them.
(OHotMU 2006#3 - BTS) - Stevens dropped out of sight, reportedly killed in a skiing accident.

Are you me or is this mirror just a window?
Is the character from Marvel Comics Presents#97/4 and Silver Sable#21-22 the same guy? Fun Info on Cyclone In all his appearances Cyclone didn't speak one single word and his teammates even made fun of him because of this. Authors made fun of him too: Kurt Busiek once joked that the Cyclone from Silver Sable died in a skiing accident. Authors? Teammates? Can it get worse? The Impossible Man probably had a good laugh too and Angar the Screamer probably couldn't hold back either. Poor, poor guy! His real name was revealed in OHotMU 2006#3.

Not really a problem! Costume changes are a regular thing. Probably he was afraid to get shot (see Cyclone and Cyclone proto-husk) and wanted something more protective. It is also possible that Hammer just gave him the armor because he didn't want Cyclone to use foreign technology or probably he feared problems with the Maggia. I wonder where he got the duplicate from. (I bet the Tinkerer; hopefully not the dead body of the original Cyclone or the Cyclone proto-husk)
Compared to other guys in the Marvel Comics Presents story it seemed first that Cyclone was black (the hair, the face), or at least of darker complexion. In Silver Sable he looked kind of white, but you couldn't really tell because his face was only half seen. But other characters were wrongly colored too in the past. Screw the color! Just ask Turk Barrett!
In Silver Sable#21 on the last page it was stated that in the next issue Cyclone and Afterburner would debut (although both appeared in this issue already on the last page). This problem can't really be solved! He surely reinvented Cyclone for the 90s and probably wanted to make a new Cyclone from scrap.
Problem not solved!
Case closed!--Well, not really. We're listing them under the same profile for now, but it's an unresolved issue--Snood.
And the joke made it into OHotMU 2006#3.
Cyclone has no known connection to:
