Using the Illusion Projectors and the Stark Industries Combat Drones, designed by William Ginter Riva, Quentin Beck created a realistic illusion of the creature made of air. Gutes Guterman also came up with a story about the Elementals from a parallel universe that got to Earth through the tore created because of the Snap. Beck allegedly sent Cyclone to Morocco where he was causing havoc before Beck staged a fight with Cyclone and "defeated" it.
Cyclone was created as an illusion resembling a creature made of air. With the holographic system, designed by Quentin Beck, Cyclone's appearance was utterly realistic, and with Stark Industries Combat Drones, it was able to cause real damage.
- In the comics, Cyclone is André Gerard, a French engineer who due to a disagreement with his superiors created a suit capable of creating high-velocity winds and became a criminal. He mostly fought Spider-Man as well as Moon Knight. He was later replaced with Gregory Stevens and then Pierre Fresson.
- The Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Cyclone replaces Zephyr as a member of the Elementals.
