New Costume for Ronnie & FURY OF FIRESTORM #11 Solicitation!

Yesterday DC Comics released the solicitation for The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #11 shipping in July! Below you’ll find the eye-catching cover by Ethan Van Sciver with colors by Brian Miller from Hi-Fi!

Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #11 cover by Ethan Van Sciver with Joe Harris, and Yildiray Cinar

That’s right, your eyes are not deceiving you — Ronnie is wearing a new costume! And it looks friggin’ awesome! I love the combination of the red & black with the blue flames! Very striking! Hi-Fi really outdid themselves with those blue flames!!! And the new symbol is very interesting; somewhat reminiscent of the Yin-Yang symbol. Also interesting is how Ethan Van Sciver described the new costume on Facebook…

Ethan Van Sciver: “Firestorm #11 cover, with Ronnie’s Secondary Power Costume!”

“Ronnie’s Secondary Power Costume?” Huh? “Secondary?” Does this mean his current costume is his “primary” costume? Will he continue to switch back and forth between costumes? Will he use different powers when in his “secondary power costume?” Will he finally learn to access the transmutation powers, or some other powers altogether? I can’t wait to find out! Here is the solicitation featuring Ethan Van Sciver, Joe Harris, Yildiray Cinar, and Hi-Fi! Such a dream team!

Written by: Ethan Van Sciver and Joe Harris
Art by: Yildiray Cinar and Norm Rapmund
Cover by: Ethan Van Sciver
On sale July 25 | 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US

  • JASON and FIREHAWK head to Russia and discover the secret origin of POZHAR!
  • Ronnie, Rakshasa and Pozhar head to the wilds of mountainous Pakistan to continue their hunt for the heart of the rogue threat: ASHRA KHAN!

We’ve read only one issue with fantastic new writer Joe Harris, and yet we already have four further issue solicitations! I can’t stand the wait! Perhaps knowing too much can be a bad thing.

My thanks to match-head Brandon Leonard for the heads-up on this costume change! Much appreciated!

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Don’t like it. Don’t like it. Don’t like it! As a Firestorm purist I don’t like this one bit. When Didio did the ol’ bait and switch on Stormy fans years ago he said it was primarily because Firestorm as a character had become too confusing. I don’t think its gotten any simpler since then…if anything the whole Firestorm concept is even more confusing today! I was really hoping Ethan was going to funnel the whole thing into something that more resembles the classic take on the character… but I guess thats not the case. big sigh!

  4. That’s a point for sure..
    I think I too was hoping they might get back to basics with the New 52 but at least the book is interesting, with some obvious love of the character..
    cheers, A.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the overall look. Think I’ll wait to see more of it before commenting other than to say that I’m happy to see the puffy sleeves back!
    It’s a slightly odd cover though – I can’t figure out if they’re fighting or not but I don’t think they are. It almost looks like Pozhar is still showing Ronnie the ropes – the rough way!

    Thanks for all the comments! A couple things to notice specifically about Ronnie’s new costume..
    1) His left hand is featured heavily. That’s the hand he recently lost. Hmmm…
    2) Puffy sleeves? Check. I’m good.

    Thanks again!
