Jimmy’s mother was driving through the Jornada del Meurto desert in New Mexico in July 1945 while pregnant with her son, fleeing an alcoholic and abusive husband. What she didn’t know was that she and her unborn child were dangerously close to the Trinity site, the location of the first testing of a nuclear bomb. Though the explosion didn’t kill either of them, the effects of the radiation did have some amazing effects. Little Jimmy seemed to perpetually run a high fever, though he never showed any signs of being sick. This mystery was somewhat solved when at the age of 5, Jimmy suddenly burst into flames while playing on the playground in their backyard. The fire didn’t harm Jimmy in the slightest, but it scared the hell out of his mother. Jimmy was able to learn to control this strange ability remarkably quickly and efficiently, particularly for a young boy, and he even taught himself to lob flaming balls of fire from his hands at any target he wished. News of this bizarre young man spread quickly, and he was propositioned to join the Hero Corps in 1957, shortly after his 11th birthday, using the codename Ember. He served on the team until 1978 after 21 years and changed his name to Ash to set out on a solo career. He served the citizens of Ford City until he decided to retire in 2003 at the age of 58.
