Believe it or not, we haven’t seen Firestorm in the mainstream DC universe (call it The New 52 if you like) since Forever Evil #7 (released way back in March 2014). Yup, it’s been over a year since the Nuclear Man appeared. Kinda surprising, isn’t it?
I know what you are thinking… Didn’t we just see Firestorm in The New 52: Futures End? Nope, that was a possible timeline five years in the future. Didn’t we see Firestorm in Justice League a few months ago? Nope, he was only referenced as being infected. Didn’t he just appear in a panel of the Bat-Mite promo? Well yes, but that was a gag, and it was just a photo. It wasn’t Firestorm actually appearing and doing something.
For the first time since Forever Evil #7, Firestorm has made an appearance in a mainstream DC comic! Sort of. Truthfully, he has a one panel appearance in the online DC Sneak Peek of Justice League United #11. Not exactly a triumphant return, but we’ll take it!
- Does this mean Firestorm will appear in Justice League United at some point? Not sure.
- What’s up with Firestorm’s shadowy appearance and obscured costume? Not sure
- Why is he floating above the Earth and what is the lofty-concept universal threat? Not sure
