Here are your Firestorm-related Who’s Who entries from this issue…
First up is the Weasel drawn by Joe Brozowski and Dennis Janke. Firestorm encountered the Weasel in Fury of Firestorm #38 (cover dated August 1985). More recently the Weasel showed up as a Black Lantern in Blackest Night. Click to enlarge.
Next is the Vixen drawn by Luke McDonnell and Bob Smith. Vixen was a member of “Justice League Detroit” and a sometimes-ally of the original Firestorm (incarnation #1). More importantly, Vixen served as a JLA teammate to the Jason/Gehenna Firestorm (incarnation #7). Also worth noting, the writer who co-created Vixen was Gerry Conway (the same writer who co-created Firestorm)! Click to enlarge.
