Riptide (born Janos Quested) was a mutant who could spin his body fast enough to create large tornados. He was also able to generate smaller tornadoes.
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 Salvadore and Azazel.
- 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.
- Enhanced Rotation- Riptide is capable of spinning at superhuman speeds without it affecting his balance or coordination. He is capable of being the eye of his own hurricane.
- Spatial Awareness- Likely to be a trained ability or part of his mutation. Riptide is capable of guiding himself whilst spinning. He was able to destroy Cerebro without accidently harming the young mutants or destroying the part of the facility they were in.
- He is the only member from the former Hellfire Club whose fate remains unknown as his fellow teammates Azazel, Angel Salvadore and Emma Frost were among those experimented on and killed by Bolivar Trask between X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though unconfirmed, it is most likely that he suffered the same fate.
- Of the Hellfire Club members, Riptide is the only one to be silent.
- In the comics Riptide is a member of the Marauders the team that massacred the Morlocks.
