Fred Hembeck Sketch of Elemental Firestorm

Match-head Nico Lizarraga has sent us another fantastic Fred Hembeck Firestorm sketch! This time it’s the Elemental Firestorm!

Thomas the Train and Firestorm

Firestorm has turned up in one of the more bizarre toy mash-ups! Thomas & Friends (a.k.a. Thomas the Train, or Thomas the Tank Engine) has teamed up with Fisher Price’s DC Super Friends line of toys to produce superhero trains! Firestorm is just one of these trains in their “Minis” line.

Below you’ll find Flynn the Fire Engine re-imagined as Firestorm! Click the images to enlarge!

Here is the packaging (front and back). Notice all the other super heroes and villains! Click the images to enlarge!

Finally, since these are “Minis”, I thought I would provide a sense of scale. Notice this train is barely an inch high in comparison to the classic Super Powers Firestorm action figure.

I found this set of trains at Wal-Mart for about $15. Happy hunting, Match-heads!

My thanks to Jeremy Hobbs for the heads-up!

Robbie Amell returns to The Flash as Deathstorm; plus Panabaker as Killer Frost

Robbie Amell is returning to The Flash, but this time as the Earth-Two Deathstorm! Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly:

We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash. You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.

I’m not sure how much similarity we’ll see between the TV version of Deathstorm and the two comic versions we’ve met previously. Personally, I’m hoping if there are any similarities he’s more like the second comic incarnation of Deathstorm (from the Crime Syndicate). I’ve previously outlined my concerns about the first Deathstorm incarnation.

Also, according to the EW article, on Earth-Two Ronnie and Caitlin are still a couple! If you’ve been watching previews for The Flash, then you know the Earth-Two version of Ronnie’s former wife, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), is actually Killer Frost! Below is a pic of Robbie Amell in his Deathstorm costume taken on the set of The Flash.
