- I used to be a C-Lister. No one ever gave me a second's thought. They made fun of me. But thanks to Loki, I'm back, and I'm better than ever. No one will ever mock Whirlwind again!
Not long before David graduated High School, he learned he could control the airflow around him. At first he thought he could use his powers to impress his crush, a guy named Jack Taggert. After Jack rejected him, David got angry and sucked all of the oxygen out of his lungs, killing him. One of their classmates witnessed it an called the police, so David ran far away, using his powers to get him further away.
After getting away, David had gotten in touch with the international criminal mastermind known as the Tinkerer. They had made arrangements to meet in order to have David's career lift off. After they finally met, Tinkerer introduced David to his armor, which he loved and thought it would make him one of the biggest supervillains of all time.
Vs. Iron Man
When David made his public debut as Whirlwind, his main goal was just to kill people, which he had gotten addicted to. He didn't manage to wreak much havoc as the armored superhero known as Iron Man managed to arrive just in time. Iron Man seemed to be multi-tasking, as he was talking to someone who was not there. Whirlwind was becoming desperate for attention, so after he did manage to kill a civilian, Iron Man paid attention and easily took out Whirlwind with two uni-beam blasts. Whirlwind was taken to prison, and Tony Stark paid for the civilian's funeral.
