Firestorm’s first appearance since Forever Evil

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!

DC Sneak Peek: Justice League United with Firestorm


  • 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

Lots of questions and we’re short on answers. Looking forward to finding out! My thanks to Siskoid and Martin Gray for the heads-up on this appearance!

Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!

    Captain Atom popped up in that sneak peak too,

  2. Spinks says:

    Maybe, DC will reboot him again in his own series–esp. with the Flash TV series going so well… here’s hoping!

  3. The image smacks of trying to conceal a costume re-design that may not be finalized yet.

    On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised if when we next see Firestorm, his look is much darker (black and dark red) to reflect the FLASH TV show look.

    You have seen Xum’s Line it is Drawn for this week on CSBG, right? Just checking; expected to see a reference over here already by now…

  5. Give the way DC has treated a lot of characters in Nu52 (last I read, I’ve jumped ship for awhile now), I don’t know if I’m that upset about Firestorm being left out.

    Then again… if Shag up and approves what they do with him next, I’ll buy a copy.
