NEWSFLASH: Firestorm died in the recently published DC Universe Online Legends #23… well, sort of.
First, it’s pretty cool that Firestorm made an appearance in the DC Universe Online Legends comic, especially since he hasn’t shown up in the game itself yet.
Second, it’s pretty cool he made the cover by Mike S. Miller! See below…
Third, it’s pretty cool that it took someone like Black Adam to kill Firestorm!
Finally, it’s cool that apparently Firestorm isn’t dead. DC Universe: The Source blog recently ran some preview pages of DC Universe Online Legends #24 drawn by Howard Porter and Livesay. Oddly enough, Firestorm appears in those preview pages (see below). So I guess Black Adam really just gave Firestorm a chiropractic adjustment. Awful nice of Teth-Adam…
Is anyone out there reading this comic regularly? I’ve skimmed through it a few times. Near as I can tell, it’s set loosely in the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe. Since there is a bunch of wonky time travel and apocalyptic futures, I can only assume this is an alternate timeline (or a timeline that will be erased/corrected in the conclusion). In regard to Firestorm, I’m pretty sure this is the Brightest Day Firestorm with Ronnie in charge of the merged form. Nice to see this incarnation again, even it was just for shock value.
My thanks to Match-head SDF-7 for the heads-up on this appearance!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
