How Riptide joined the Tourney
In 1962, Riptide was a member of the Hellfire Club. He attacked Division X with Azazel and Sebastian Shaw.
Riptide later joined his teammates to fight against the X-Men. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, while Erik Lehnsherr was magnetically pulling Shaw's submarine out of the water, Riptide created a tornado, causing both the X-Jet and the submarine to crash on the beach. He was knocked out when Erik pulls a piece of the submarine hull out on top of him. After Sebastian Shaw is killed, Riptide joins Magneto's new Brotherhood of Mutants, along with Mystique, Angel Salvadore and Azazel.
A month after becoming a Brotherhood of Mutants member, Riptide sets out to gather mutants for Magneto's cause, when they are attacked by Cooler's Armored Squadron. One of the members, Neiz wants to entice Riptide into becoming a member of Cooler's army.
