Welcome back for the seventh day of Mayfairstivus, the nine day celebration of Mayfair Games’ DC Heroes Role-Playing Game! Today we’ll be looking at the RPG statistics for a couple of Firestorm’s foes/antagonists: the new Thinker (a.k.a. Cliff Carmichael) and Brimstone.
Below you’ll find the DC Comics Who’s Who entry from 1991 that includes Cliff Carmichael as the new Thinker (he’s the one in the top left hand corner). Back when Cliff was bothering Ronnie Raymond on a regular basis, he wasn’t yet a cyberpunk maniac. That didn’t happen until Cliff was exiting the Firestorm series and moving over to the Suicide Squad series. One of the best never-seen moments must have been when they shaved off Carmichael’s mutton chops. I’m sure the Suicide Squad had some mutton chop threshold that Captain Boomerang was already exceeding.
Cliff never faced Firestorm as the Thinker during his time with the Suicide Squad. Cliff returned over a decade later in his Thinker persona to battle the Jason Rusch Firestorm. This was during Firestorm vol. III #11-13, when Jason was merged with a sort of matrix-ghost of Ronnie Raymond.

Next up you’ll find the first edition stats for Brimstone from 1988! While Brimstone began as a world-wide threat during the Legends mini-series, he quickly seemed to become a Firestorm villain. In fact, Brimstone fought the first three incarnations of Firestorm. The Ronnie Raymond/Professor Stein original Firestorm battled Brimstone during Legends. A while later the “Blank Slate” Firestorm battled Brimstone in his own series. Finally the Elemental Firestorm battled Brimstone in Firestorm #100.
