I used to love Firestorm when I was a kid. I can't remember why, now ...

    Hey its OK, I thought he was great too.

    Love the image. Very sharp facial lines with a flowing fire mane. I had a soft spot for Firestorm when I was a kid, too. Maybe because he was on the superfriends cartoon.

    MMI: Yeah, I remember him from comics and cartoons when i was a kid for a while and then…… nothing. he was nowhere to be found after the cartoons went off the air. Hard not to like a guy who can shift molecules and turn people into table salt. I’ll admit that was technically a corrupted (un)dead version of Ronnie as Firestorm, but still pretty badass. Also very douche-tastic of him.

    Actually you need to read Brightest Day Volumes 1 & 2. Pretty cool stuff they’re doing with Firestorm in there.

    Woot! SOD makes a return. Awesome, Jeff.

    Not much of a Firestorm fan myself though.

    @Jeff: I bet it was the fire hair 😉

    I love fire hair! Yeah, I said it! 🙂

    I have him muddled with Red Tornado in my head. Red Tornado was the dude whose psyche was fused with an incorporeal former scientist or something, right?

  8. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    No, you’re thinking of Firestorm, Whit — Dumb high school jock and super smart nuclear professor get fused in an explosion, and the professor is present only as a ghostly floating head.

    Hey, it was the Eighties!

  9. Avatar dblade says:

    Nope. That’s Firestorm. Red Tornado is an android inhabited by an air elemental (last I checked).

    I liked Firestorm as a kid too. His costume was just so goofy looking, with those shoulder-pad things, but somehow the whole thing had kind of a cool look to it too.

    Hey Jeff, totally off-topic here, have you heard any news concerning inFamous 2? I just figured a superhero game set in New Orleans would really appeal to you, so there’s your notice 😀

  15. Avatar Novak says:

    What kid wouldn’t like a guy who can make smores on his head?

  16. Avatar spidercow2010 says:

    Yeah, I can’t help thinking he needs a hat made by Weber. A smaller Smokey Joe lid, with adjustable vents.

  17. Avatar punkjay says:

    The funny part of Firestorm isis being made up of 2 diffrent people, he’s his pwn side kick lol.

  18. Avatar punkjay says:

    I would love to see that hemut thingy he wears to be a hm3 add on, just a thaught!

    I Love Firestorm, though my Preferred version of the character was when he got transformed into the Elemental of Fire

  21. Avatar Michael says:

    I liked him too. When I was little he was the only super hero action figure I had. I didn’t know who he was at the time.
