Title contributed by Marvel Handbook Writer/Researcher Stuart Vandal. Stuart says, "Tornado was an IPC comic, a stablemate of 2000AD (and later merged with it). In their humor strip 'Captain Klep,' about an inept Superman-like hero, he visits Miniopolis, 'Mecca of the Mighty,' which, in issue #2, is full of cameos that artist Kevin O'Neill threw in. If the superhero on the cover of Tornado looks vaguely familiar, that's to be expected. IPC went through a phase of having fictional editors for some of their titles, the most famous being 2000AD's Tharg. For Tornado it was the superhero Big E. For publicity purposes they decided to dress someone up and take some photos of them in character. The man in question? Dave Gibbons, who you'll know better as an artist."
