Why would anyone want to stop a tornado when they could instead throw a bunch of gas and fireworks into it and then light it on fire and watch the show?

Let's be rational here...

If the tornado was 60 ft high and 30 ft wide and spinning at a rate of 200 mph and a 6 ft tall and 3 ft wide super hero wanted to create an equal and opposite reaction he or she would have to spiral up and down the tornado at a rate of 2000 mph. (????)

Remember, in Sharknado they stopped tornadoes with explosives, so that won't work.

I can't really produce numbers, but I do know that to cancel out a tornado, you'll need a force tremendous enough to disperse the cell that spawned it--a weaker force may temporarily dissipate the tornado itself, but the cell will just turn out another one.

Even with the cell gone, the cell may reform again later, it'll just take more time.

A tornado is essentially the tip of the iceberg of a giant mesocyclone. You may as well try to take out the whole storm.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

Or you could guide the tornado over an active volcano. The rising heat from the volcano would strengthen the tornado, which could pick up pyroclastic flows.

Win-win!

What if you just flew around in the upper cold front to generate enough heat to halt the air funneling effect?
