First, be sure to pick up Justice League #20 if you haven’t already. It came out a few weeks ago and features some good Firestorm moments. Well worth the time and money for any Match-heads.
Second, I wanted to take a moment to discuss the closing caption box. Check it out below.
If you haven’t been reading Justice League of America (JLA), then you need to know this team was assembled with the secret purpose of taking down the Justice League (JL) if ever necessary. Each member of the JLA has been recruited specifically for their ability to take down a specific member of the JL. So the caption box above poses the question, “Who will be chosen by the JLA to take on Firestorm?” Good question. Anyone willing to hazard a guess?
I have a sneaking suspicion it’s … wait for it … Professor Martin Stein. I know, you’re thinking, “Wha- What?!?!” My reason for this is why else was Professor Stein brought back in Fury of Firestorm #20. Prior to that, Professor Stein was dead as far as DC editorial was concerned, and any creators inquiring about bringing him back were shot down (or so the rumor goes). So why bring Professor Stein back in the final issue of Firestorm? I can’t think of any reason other than Geoff Johns wants to use the character in one of his Justice League books.
Anyone else got a theory on the JLA recruit or why Professor Stein was brought back?
