Danielle Panabaker debuts as Caitlin Snow on Arrow

It’s been quite the week for Killer Frost! Yesterday we talked about the new Batman: Assault on Arkham animated film featuring Killer Frost. Today we’re shouting-out Danielle Panabaker’s debut as Caitlin Snow on last Wednesday’s episode of the CW’s Arrow. You Match-heads already know, but for those unaware Caitlin Snow is the alter-ego of the new Killer Frost appearing in recent DC Comics.

This appearance of Caitlin Snow serves as a lead-in to the upcoming Arrow spin-off, The Flash. Both Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon (played by Carlos Valdes) are slated to appear in the pilot of The Flash (and possibly as regulars). No word yet if Panabaker’s Caitlin Snow will become Killer Frost, but seems likely given the faithfulness to the comics displayed on Arrow. If you missed last week’s episode of Arrow, check your local cable company for on-demand options or watch it on Hulu. You can also check out a scene with Panabaker on DC All Access by clicking here (scene starts at 3:14).

Great job, Danielle! Looking forward to your role as Caitlin Snow on the upcoming Flash TV series! My thanks to all the folks who gave me heads-up on this appearance (far too many to list here, but you know who you are!).

Who's Who The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #19

Here are your Firestorm-related Who’s Who entries from this issue…

First up is fellow Satellite-era Justice Leaguer, Red Tornado by Joe Brozowski (Firestorm artist) & Greg Theakston! Firestorm and Red Tornado fought side-by-side several times, however, the adventure connecting them closest is probably Justice League of America #192-193. Red Tornado’s origin is revealed and only Firestorm is privy to all the details. Click the image to enlarge.

Next up is the Royal Flush Gang by Tom Mandrake (Firestorm artist)! Firestorm has battled these folks a few times. Just to name a couple: Justice League of America (vol 1) #203-205 and Firestorm (vol 3) #17. JLA #205 wraps-up with a great battle between Hector Hammond and Professor Martin Stein! Click the image to enlarge.

Finally, a tangentially related character, Roy Raymond TV Detective by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (Praise Be His Name). Writer/artist Dan Jurgens recently established during his run on Firestorm that Ronnie Raymond is the nephew of Roy Raymond! While we haven’t seen them together yet, we do have this scene from The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #14. This works in the New 52, but wouldn’t have worked in the Pre-Flashpoint continuity (since Ronnie’s real family name wasn’t Raymond). Click the image to enlarge. So… anyone get my subtle Tangent reference in the same paragraph as Dan Jurgens?

Mark Bagley Firestorm Sketch

Check out this recent Mark Bagley convention sketch done for Match-head Roy Cleary!

Firestorm sketch by Mark Bagley

I love Bagley’s work. His Thunderbolts was so much fun! Love that series!

At the same convention Roy had the chance to meet Dan Jolley and Jamal Igle too! Sounds like a Firestorm-filled show to me! While there I imagine Roy was hunting for another copy of the variant cover to Fury of Firestorm #61 from 1987. After all, he’s only got nine copies so far. Seriously.

Thanks to Jay Jones for helping get this sketch scanned! Check out Jay’s Captain Atom blog – Splitting Atoms!

Masters of the Universe vs DC Universe with Firestorm!

What do He-Man and Firestorm have in common, besides both being 1980s cartoon idols? Well, they both recently appeared in DC Universe vs Masters of the Universe #6!

In this issue, our favorite Nuclear Man is under the spell of … wait for it … Dark Orko! Firestorm is out for Skeletor’s blood! Or whatever passes for blood in that skeletal body of his.
