On Bleeding Cool yesterday, an image by Jim Lee was released featuring the new Justice League. The team consists of Aquaman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Flash (presumably Barry Allen), and Cyborg. Interestingly, in the background you can see Deadman, the Atom, Elemental Woman (presumably), Green Arrow, Hawkman, Power Girl (presumably), Mera and… FIRESTORM! Yes, Firestorm is featured in the new Justice League promotional image. Hot dog!

This matches up with something Geoff Johns said on Twitter back on June 21. Our good buddy Brandon Leonard wrote on Twitter to Geoff, “Hope firestorm is part of the new Justice League he deserves his spot back!” Geoff responded with, “We will eventually have a large team like Justice League Unlimited in a way so we’ll see!” The combination of Geoff’s quote on Twitter, combined with Firestorm appearing in the background of this image, suggests that Firestorm will be on the team eventually, but not right away.
Now we gotta wonder which Firestorm is this? Is this Ronnie, Jason, or “Super-Storm”? To me, this looks more like Jason because there are no black bursts around the eyes and the headpiece isn’t pointed on the cheeks. However, that might just be artistic interpretation. Regardless, exciting news!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
