Trinity War Part 2 & 3: Firestorm and Kryptonite

“Trinity War” Part 3 in Justice League Dark #22 hits comic book stores today! Share your thoughts on the issue in the comments! If you weren’t paying attention last week, you missed this bombshell…

Firestorm was asked the following question in Justice League of America #6, “Can you make Kryptonite?”

Firestorm asked about Kryptonite in Justice League of America #6

Wow! That suggests major implications for the Man of Steel. During the “Trinity War” panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, the panelists were asked if Firestorm would be making an appearance.  Jeff Lemire responded by saying, “Yeah, Firestorm has a pretty big role in Trinity War, because he can make Kryptonite. He’ll be around.” I guess that answers Amanda Waller’s question! This also helps explain the Firestorm Tarot card labeled, “The Prison” from Part 1 of the “Trinity War”.

For old time Match-heads, we already knew the answer to Amanda Waller’s question…

    Well, he certainly could in the old DCU, on several occasions….

  2. Jeff R. says:

    But could the pre-crisis Firestorm make variety Kryptonite? Gold, X-, White? And would each chunk of Red he made have the same effect, or a different one each time?

  3. Of course, even if old-school Firestorm could make Kryptonite, that itself proved nothing about what modern Firestorm could do. Besides all the changes New 52 has wrought, it was established back when Ronnie was Firestorm on his own that he could no longer make materials he didn’t understand the basic atomic structure of.

    Not to say that I mind seeing the classic Super Powers comic referenced. Just that it’s kind of irrelevant to New-Waller’s question.

      True that the picture I referenced was Pre-New 52, but I think Jeff Lemire’s comment referenced above answers the New 52 question.

    Oh man, I remember having that growing up! Still got the firestorm fig it came with, but no idea where the comic went to. (I probably read it so much it disintegrated)
