Here are your Firestorm-related Who’s Who entries from this issue…
First up is Plastique, the bombastic bombshell, by Joe Brozowski & Dell Barras! She first battled the Nuclear Man back in Fury of Firestorm #7 (1982) and has continued to plague him ever since!
Next is Power Girl by Joe Staton! A long time ago on a satellite far, far away… Firestorm and Power Girl were very nearly an item! Don’t believe me? Then check out this post!
Finally we’ve got the Phantom Stranger by Jim Aparo! Firestorm and the Stranger spent some quality time together back in 1985 during Fury of Firestorm #32.
