Silver Cyclone was the Crime Syndicate counterpart of Red Tornado.
Silver Cyclone was second in command of the Crime Syndicate. At the start of the episode "Deep Cover for Batman!", Silver Cyclone reveals himself to be the mastermind behind the Crime Syndicate's operation. After Batman disguised as Owlman, tries to deceive the syndicate by telling them that Earth-23 is far too dangerous to invade, Cyclone switches to plan B which is the destruction of Earth 23.
After obtaining the chemical needed for his bomb and capturing Red Hood, the only hero left to oppose them, Silver Cyclone proceeded to torture Red Hood to see if he had left any traps on Earth-23. When Cyclone figured out that Red Hood was passing coding information to Batman, he located him in the ventilation shaft and blew him towards a set of rotating blades. Knowing that this would not stop him, Cyclone gathered all the other Crime Syndicate members and attacked Batman and Red Hood who freed the other heroes.
In the ensuing battle that Cyclone and his team lost, he revealed his ace in the hole. The bomb that he had completed, along with a twist. While he seemed to be a loyal member he secretly plotted to destroy all organic life, including those of his comrades as his bomb only destroyed organic matter. However, a quick spade thrown into his head by Red Hood silenced Silver Cyclone once and for all.
