- This article is about the human T.O. Morrow. For his android replica, see T.O. Morrow (android).
Thomas O. Morrow was once a genius scientist who created three superhero androids to infiltrate and destroy the Justice Society of America.
In the 1940s, T.O. Morrow was a talented scientist who set out to destroy the Justice Society of America in order to undergo his plans of wiping out humanity and replacing them with androids, thus creating his ideal world. His first creation was Red Torpedo, an android programmed to think he was human. However, his programming was crude and Red Torpedo failed to successfully infiltrate the Society. Then, Morrow opted to build a female android dubbed Firebrand. This time the programming worked too well, and Firebrand's heroism got her killed while protecting a fellow Leaguer. So, Morrow decided for a change in approach. He built Red Tornado, and unlike the previous models, this one would know he was an android. Tornado was successfully inducted in the JSA, but his heroic programming developed a Pinocchio complex and he betrayed Morrow for the League.
Despite three failed attempts, T.O. Morrow refused to yield. The scientist spent the subsequent seven decades pursuing undisclosed ventures, and at some unspecified point he created an android version of himself, presumably to carry on his work.
Currently, T.O. Morrow is bedridden and hooked to a life-support system. Red Tornado manifested intentions of nursing him, stating that despite the fact that he was evil Thomas is still his father, citing it as the most human thing to do.
