The government's secret weapon exposed!

We all need to release some steam sometimes—a lesson Supergirl must learn when she faces multiple challenges both in her personal life and professional one. But for us, it's less so about releasing steam as releasing all the #DCTV Secrets we found in this week's episode!

  • Who is Sam Lane?
  • What is the Red Tornado?
  • Who is Doctor Morrow?

Want to carry on the conversation?  Jump on #DCTV in Twitter and see what clues others have found.  Don’t go any further if you don’t want to know any more.  But of course you do and you will.





That's General Lane to You

The father of both Lois and Lucy Lane, General Sam Lane first appeared in SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND, LOIS LANE #13. Hard-edged, terse, and strict, General Lane strives to protect his country from all threats—including those extra-terrestrial. General Lane views Superman as a potential threat and ticking time bomb and does not approve of his daughter's relationship with the Man of Steel and has even gone to great lengths to make sure fail-safes and systems are in place to take out Superman should he ever go rogue.

The Red Tornado

The self-aware android Red Tornado first appeared in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #64 and battled both the JLA and the Justice Society before turning against his creator and becoming a hero. The character would go on to serve as a member of the JLA and eventually adopted a secret identity and attempted to live a normal life. As for his creator…

Doctor Tomorrow

T.O. Morrow, or Doctor Tomorrow, first appeared in FLASH #143 and created the Red Tornado android. Incredibly intelligent, the doctor developed a way to see into the future, allowing him to create advanced future technology in present day. However, instead of using these inventions altruistically, he used them commit crimes and benefit himself.

See you next week!
