The Fire and Water Podcast Presents… WHO’S WHO: THE DEFINITIVE PODCAST OF THE DC UNIVERSE, Volume III!
The third episode of our WHO’S WHO podcast — the show that dares to tackle one of DC Comics’ greatest publications! Each episode Rob and I cover a single issue of the legendary 1980s series, Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe. This time around we discuss characters such as Black Lightning, Blue Devil, Blue Beetle, Brainiac, B’Wana Beast, and many more! We wrap up the show with Who’s Who Listener Feedback!

Here are your Firestorm-related Who’s Who entries from this issue…
Breathtaker, drawn by the outstanding Rafael Kayanan! This foe first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #29 (Nov. 1984). Click the image to enlarge.
Bug & Byte, again drawn by Rafael Kayanan! These foes first appeared in The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #23 & #24 (May & June 1984). Click the image to enlarge.
And finally, Blue Devil drawn by amazing Paris Cullins & Gary Martin! … okay… I’ll admit it, it’s a stretch considering Blue Devil as a Firestorm-related character. I can’t help it, I just LOVE this character! And he did have a crossover with Firestorm in 1986. That counts for something, right? Click the image to enlarge.
