I read X-Men comics for years, and I don’t remember any Riptide – but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be appearing in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, portrayed by Spanish actor Álex González.
González was first rumored to be playing a character called “Tornado,” before translations got corrected and Riptide was properly identified. A quick Google search later, and it turns out that I do know Riptide – he’s identified as one of the Marauders behind 1986’s Mutant Massacre, and the one that Colossus killed in the Morlock tunnels – which does bring to mind the question, are we going to see a potential 1960s massacre in this franchise reboot?
