Riptide (Janos Quested) is a mutant who can spin his body fast enough to create large tornados. He is also able to generate smaller tornadoes.


X-Men: First ClassEdit

In 1962, Riptide was a member of the Hellfire Club. He attacked Division X with Azazel and Sebastian Shaw.

Riptide later joined his teammates to fight against the X-Men. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, while Erik Lehnsherr was magnetically pulling Shaw's submarine out of the water, Riptide created a tornado, causing both the X-Jet and the submarine to crash on the beach. He was knocked out when Erik pulls a piece of the submarine hull out on top of him. After Sebastian Shaw is killed, Riptide joins Magneto's new Brotherhood of Mutants, along with Mystique, Angel and Azazel.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

He was prisoner on Three Mile Island with Toad,Emma Silverfox,Cyclops and Quicksilver he was saved by Wolverine


  • Aerokinesis - Janos is capable of creating and manipulating powerful winds of various sizes by spinning his hand.
    • Cyclone Spinning - He is also capable of using the wind to spin at tremendous speeds, becoming, at best, a human tornado with enough force to toss a submarine and the X-Jet a large distance.
