Whirlwind (Marvel)
Real Name: David Cannon
Search for 'Whirlwind (Marvel)' on Amazon

Super-speed, normally used to spin rapidly, so as to create a whirlwind (hence the name). However, he has demonstrated ground speed sufficient to outrace Quicksilver. While whirling, he is hard to grapple with or hold on to, and the air moving around him creates a cushion-like effect which protects him from conventional physical attacks.

After some time Whirlwind had updated his abilities by the use of wrist-mounted buzzsaws and throwing stars. When Whirlwind uses his power, the blades will attain a deadly velocity, making them more dangerous than when being used by normal humans.

From X-Men: The 198 Files, covering mutants who retained their powers after the Decimation of the mutant population:

"David Cannon began his criminal career under the alias the Human Top. Born a mutant, Cannon discovered at an early age that he could cause his body to move at great speeds. Cannon used his abilities early on in support of a life of crime and was later recruited into several incarnations of the Masters of Evil which has seen him opposed by the Avengers, primarily Hank Pym and the Wasp, numerous times. During this period, Cannon added a vicious new element to his costume in the form of ten-inch saw blades crafted by the Tinkerer. Other past associations have seen Cannon working for the likes of Count Nefaria and the Red Skull. Recently, Cannon's obsession with the Wasp of the Avengers led to his brutally murdering several prostitutes, indicating that his mental state may now be cause for concern."

The government classifies him as a mid-level, or 'Significant,' security threat in these files, the same ranking applied to characters like Colossus, Beast, and Lady Mastermind.

Recently, in Daughters of the Dragon #3, Whirlwind was caught in a deluge of paste from the gun of the criminal Trapster and tore himself apart in horrific fashion. However, in Thunderbolts #104 he was seen to have survived, having been forced to join Baron Zemo's team.
