Cyclone takes center stage
Cyclone’s costumes in the comics are more in the traditional sense, but the live-action iteration of the costumes seems to lean more towards the modern front. Still, the greens and purples are there, so respect for the manga design.
The prequel comic’s synopsis also seems to tease that there will be two versions of the Justice Society, the other possibly in the past.
