Michael was a fire fighter in the coastal town of Tucker’s Point. There was an explosion at an elementary school and Michael’s unit was called to respond. What they didn’t know was that the explosion (which thankfully occurred at recess and no one was hurt) was actually an attack by a mysterious organization with the chemical X-13. The fire raged uncontrollably, and the firemen couldn’t get inside until they heard the fearful cries of a small child on the fourth floor, calling through the window. Ignoring the shouts of his superiors, Michael rushed into the blaze and carried the screaming child outside. But he had been coated with the chemical and his body had merged with the fire. Within a few days, Michael had become a being composed completely of flames, and he had gained the ability to direct the fire at anything he wished, as well as fly on a cushion of heat.
