Avengers Hawkeye vs Firestorm

You may be able to find the Avengers on the big screen today, but it looks like Hawkeye has already found Firestorm! The results just might be explosive!

Super-Team Family proudly presents Firestorm and Hawkeye in “The Manhattan Project!”

Avengers Hawkeye vs Firestorm - Super-Team Family

No, you didn’t miss an inter-company crossover featuring the Bombastic Bowman and the Nuclear Man. This fictitious meeting is the work of a gentleman named Ross Pearsall who runs Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues! That site is dedicated to the greatest team-ups that never happened. He started with Brave and the Bold fake covers starring Batman, transitioned into Marvel Two-in-One fake covers starring the Thing, and is now doing Super-Team Family featuring a wide variety of team-ups. This entry features a Joe Brozowski Firestorm paired with (I believe) a Don Heck rendition of the Avenging Archer! I love Ross’s choice in Firestorm images for this one. This Firestorm art comes from the cover to Fury of Firestorm #48 where he’s up against Moonbow, a female archer! Nice symmetry! On top of all that, Ross is a former letter-hack to the Fury of Firestorm comic! Look for him in letter columns while reading your back issues!

Like the cover above? Well, below are several previous Firestorm appearances on The Lost Issues blog:

Be sure to check out Ross’ work on Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues! Every day there is a new amazing piece! Also, please consider supporting Ross’ efforts via his Patreon page! I did!

Gerry Conway discusses Creator Equity Concerns

Gerry Conway (co-creator of Firestorm) is asking, “Who created Caitlin Snow?” The real question behind that is, which writer/artist is getting paid for the usage of the character they created? Well, according to DC Comics, apparently nobody.

Caitlin Snow on The Flash

Gerry wrote a fascinating piece earlier this week over on Tumblr. The post explains that DC Comics is using a loophole to avoid paying creators the appropriate amount of “creator equity participation”.  A couple prime examples Gerry provides are Caitlin Snow and Power Girl.

Head over to Gerry’s Tumblr, read the article, and help spread the word!

Word on the street is DC Comics is taking a serious look at the concerns Gerry raised. Fingers crossed for some positive action!

Firestorm Pepsi Can from Greece – 1982

This is a bizarre piece of merchandise that I didn’t even know existed until recently! Apparently back in 1982, Pepsi produced a line of soda cans in Greece featuring some of DC Comics heroes! Check out our favorite Nuclear Man!

Firestorm Pepsi Can from Greece 1982

I’m not sure who drew the image of Firestorm. It looks like a stock image from the 1980s, so maybe Denys Cowan or Ed Hannigan? Maybe someone redrawing a stock image by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (Praise Be His Name)? Anyone care to hazard a guess?

In case you are wondering, those Greek letters loosely translate to “Firestorm”. Here are a couple more angles of the can.

I stumbled across this can on eBay a few months back. Unbelievably, it sold for $105.50!! Insane! Someone else tried to sell another can for $62 ($40 plus $22 shipping), but no luck.

Can’t see myself spending this kind of money on a rusty can, but it’s really cool to know it exists!

Will Slipknot Appear in the Suicide Squad Movie?

Hold on to your flaming hair, Match-heads! Rumors are abound that actor Adam Beach’s mysterious role in the Suicide Squad movie will be … wait for it … SLIPKNOT! Get the details over at Screen Rant.

Is Adam Beach Playing Slipknot in the Suicide Squad movie

That’s right! The Larcenous Lariat might be making his way to the silver screen! You can tell your grandchildren, you knew this mega-hit character (destined to surpass Iron Man’s popularity) from his days as a Firestorm rogue!

Okay, you can probably tell I’m poking a bit of fun at Slipknot’s expense. I truly love the character (Fury of Firestorm #28 was the first Firestorm comic I ever bought), but he’s absolutely a fourth- or fifth-tier character. The fact that he can hold his own against Firestorm is pretty ridiculous. He’s a guy with trick rope. That’s his entire gimmick. Alternatively, he would be an ideal foe for Green Arrow and other street-level folks (an idea put forward by our good friend Diabolu Frank). Also worth mentioning is that we openly mock Slipknot on a regular basis over on our FIRE & WATER PODCAST.

One thing Slipknot has going for him is his unique costume design. With that creatively decorated mask, open sleeves, and exposed ribs, his look really works in a comic. Unfortunately, he’s unlikely to wear anything even remotely similar in the film. My suspicion is that Slipknot will serve one purpose in the film; to demonstrate how deadly it can be to oppose the mission. In the comics he lost an arm. In a film, it might just be his life.

Looking forward to seeing how this develops! My thanks to Lil’ Chad BokelmanDaniel Cynical AdamsAaron Head Moss, Charles Barnard, and Michael Wagner for the heads-up on this news!
