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

First up is the Zuggernaut by Joe Brozowski and Sam De La Rosa.  Sigh… yes, the Zuggernaut. Conceptually a neat villain, in practice, pretty much a punch line for Firestorm jokes. He first appeared in Firestorm the Nuclear Man #69 and was last seen (thankfully) in Firestorm the Nuclear Man #73. Considering The Flash TV series has borrowed so many Firestorm villains already, I kinda expect the Zuggernaut to show up some day. Then we’ll know the show has officially “Jumped the Shark”.

Zuggernaut by Joe Brozowski and Sam De La Rosa

Next up is Ed and Felicity Raymond by Joe Brozowski and Sam De La Rosa. Ed is Ronnie Raymond’s father; Felicity is Ronnie’s step-mother.  More importantly, Felicity’s prior name was Felicity Smoak! Yes, THAT Felicity Smoak! Did you know your favorite Arrow hottie started off as Firestorm’s step-mom?!? And listen to this episode to hear Rob take this drawing out behind the woodshed and beat it thoroughly. Click to enlarge.

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

First up is the teenage Soviet super-team, Soyuz by Joe Brozowki and Sam De La Rosa. Soyuz lived in the Soviet Union and were supporting characters during the “Blank Slate” period of Firestorm. Firebird was the niece of Mikhail Arkadin (one part of Firestorm). Click to enlarge.

Next up is the Firestorm foe, Stalnoivolk (Steel Wolf) by Joe Brozowki and Sam De La Rosa. Steel Wolf was essentially a Soviet Super Soldier. Similar to Captain America in his physical abilities and his patriotism for his country. He first appeared in Fury of Firestorm #67 and eventually went on to work with the Suicide Squad. Click to enlarge.
