First look at one of Supergirl's super villains, Red Tornado

Did he trip into the red paint?

Let's start off by agreeing that Red Tornado had an uphill battle to begin with as a villain. He's not really a name villain since in general and the name he has is pretty dumb. CBS says he's “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.” I'd say he's a walking advertisement for why you shouldn't drink too much Mountain Dew Code Red. 

That's pretty dramatic and clearly Supergirl is going to be having a tough time against him... mostly because she'll be laughing so hard at how ridiculous he looks. This could just be a crappy photo, but I've seen better outfits at conventions, and those folks knew how to use eyeliner too. Of course the show will have fancy effects to make things look less cheap, but we shouldn't take for granted the power of a single bad costume image. Remember how one basically destroyed the Wonder Woman TV show?

Also, can we please ditch the micro-fibre look on every damn costume that's related to Superman? Arrow and The Flash's more natural leather look works way better.
