Whirlwind (real name David Cannon) is a rough tempered supervillain who uses wind powers for his own evil deeds. He is Wasp's rival.
David Cannon discovered his mutant abilities at an early age and used them to become a bully.
After delivering the Sonic Disruptor to Klaw he gets annoyed by The Wasp and fights her, but he ends up defeated by her. He was later taken to The Big House, without knowledge of The Big House he tried to escape the vicinity but Ant-Man prevented him from escaping realizing what The Big House really is. In his holding cell he is itching to escape but then he calms down when the Mad Thinker told him about the four supervillain prisons on the planet and that a system shutdown would free them soon.
When the breakout happens Whirlwind escaped The Big House and knocked some S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents out along the way. He later found Ant-Man. He provoked him by hurting the Wasp. He then punched him to a ledge and grabbed hold of him. As Griffin tried to attack Ant-Man he shrinked himself and attacked Whirlwind instead.
Assault on 42
Once being taken in to 42 for yet another crime, the power started flickering on and off. Later, giant bugs started to attack 42 and where controlled by a villain called Annihilus. He, along with other villains, helped Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and Thor take down the bugs. But ended up getting killed by the Bugs, it was unlikely he survived.
Whirlwind has never shown himself without his costume. The costume itself is a green colored metal-plate armor. with the cone-shaped helmet covering most of his face except for his blue eyes with two small wings at the side of the helmet. He has broad green shoulder pads, he wears some kind of green belt around his waist. He wears metal bracelets, with saw blades attached to each of them, which can be thrown.
Whirlwind is very arrogant and confident, trying to prove that he is the best at everything, like boasting against Wasp that she shouldn't challenge him. He is also ruthless as shown when he topples cars and slicing them in half without any care at all. He gets annoyed very easily by opponents who tries to tease and mock him.
