Vortex Machine is a male member of Life or Death.
This character is another hard one to explain, so here is a link incase you are still confused.
Vortex machine is a Discovery Kids tornado lab. Basically, he is a glass tube in a pyramid shaped base and with a white lid. The base has a blue stripe around the top of it and has 2 black buttons and a big-ish orange dial. Vortex Machine sometimes pretends that his dial is a bowtie.4
He rarely gets angry and doesn't like it when people touch his dial. When he gets angry, however,... well... lets just say it wont end well.
