More Firestorm on The Flash tonight!

While this week’s trailer didn’t hint much about Firestorm, we know he’ll play a major role! The episode tonight is appropriately entitled, “Fallout” featuring Robbie Amell and Victor Garber as Firestorm! Below are a few stills from the episode.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shot below of Ronnie and Professor Stein face-to-face! Looks like they are about to merge!

Check out this clip featuring Ronnie Raymond and Professor Martin Stein clashing over their shared identity. Also, be sure to note that Professor Stein calls Ronnie by the name, “Ronald.” Love that attention to detail from the comics!

So excited for tonight!!! Gleaning what we can from interviews, sounds like this will be the last episode featuring Firestorm for a while. If we’re lucky, we’ll see him again towards the end of the season, but no guarantees.

The Flash S01E13 Post-Game Report – The Nuclear Man

Wow! An entire episode of a live action TV show focused on Firestorm! As a fan for the past 30 years, I hoped for this but never imagined it would actually happen! I’m not going to spend a lot of time recapping the story from last night. You either saw it, or can find a zillion recaps on the web. We’re going to look at this Firestorm-centric episode from the big picture, and focus on a few details.

I believe it goes without saying, but just in case it doesn’t, this article will feature SPOILERS for episode 13 of The Flash!

Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow) and Robbie Amell (Ronnie Raymond and Firestorm) on The Flash

Overall, I loved this episode! I’m predisposed to being charitable to Firestorm appearances, but my non-geek wife (an impartial judge) also enjoyed this one. I found myself punching the air and gasping throughout the episode! In addition to the inclusion of the character, I think Robbie Amell and Danielle Panabaker did a phenomenal job selling the strained romance between Ronnie & Caitlin. Really got me “in the feels”. Victor Garber was simply perfect as Professor Martin Stein. We only saw him briefly, but such inspired casting!

From the Comics to the Screen

In the opening scene Firestorm confronts Martin’s old college friend. In the TV episode, the character was named Quentin Quayle and he worked for Concordance Research. In the comics, Martin Stein worked for Quentin Quayle at Concordance Research, and Quentin was a royal jerk. In fact, Quentin fired Professor Stein so I wasn’t too upset when he got injured in the show.

In the show we met Martin’s wife, Clarissa. A similar character exists in the comics, but she’s Martin’s manipulative ex-wife. Clarissa Clemens (returning to her maiden name) was working for a secret organization conspiring to take over the U.S. government. Her hair was colored purple in the comics and she wasn’t above using her “feminine wiles” to further their conspiracy agenda.

Firestorm on TV was different in several ways from the iconic Nuclear Man in the comics. In my opinion, the changes didn’t harm the character. It was a significant departure in many ways, but right now I’m okay with that in order to get the character the exposure needed  to raise his profile. Once he’s established, they can start bringing in more iconic traits. Also, you may be surprised if you re-read Firestorm’s very first appearance from 1977 in Firestorm The Nuclear Man #1. In that first issue, Firestorm is different in some ways than the hero that appeared starting in issue #2. Firestorm in issue #1 was much more of a gestalt being, a merger of Ronnie and Professor Stein, rather than two individual consciousnesses. Check it out.

Firestorm’s Costume

Many people were concerned a few weeks ago when still photos were seen of Firestorm’s “costume”. We saw photos of the sweater Ronnie wore in this episode, with the inclusion of the “splicer”. Robbie Amell was asked about the costume earlier this week. You can find the article over on ComicBook.Com.

I was actually a little upset when they posted the pictures that they did of the costumes. It really just happens to be the jacket that Robbie’s wearing when the splicer’s put on. The splicer is removable in our version of the character. Whatever he’s wearing at the time can be turned into the costume. I’m sure down the road, there will be a legit costume but for the time being, it’s just whatever he’s wearing at the time when the splicer’s put on and then it’s time to go to work, that happens to be the costume. That’s just the clothes that he’s wearing when the splicer goes on. I’m sure down the road, Cisco will make him some sort of fireproof this and – he’ll do something Cisco-y and he’ll have a badass costume.

Hopes for Next Week (and future episodes)

We know we’ll see more of Ronnie Raymond & Professor Stein next week as General Eiling searches for them. Some of my hopes for the episode are:

  • I hope for more scenes with Professor Martin Stein. Victor Garber was so much fun, he deserves more screen time.
  • I hope we’ll see more interaction between Ronnie & Professor Stein while they are merged as Firestorm. So far one personality has been dominate. Perhaps with the “splicer”, they’ll be able to banter back and forth. One of the hallmark’s of the character is their constant bickering.
  • I hope we see the use of Firestorm’s transmutation power. They’ve mentioned transmutation on the show, but so far it’s only been applied to the fusion of Ronnie & Martin. Hopefully they’ll start transmuting elements from one form to another. And then hopefully we’ll get giant rubber ducks to catch people people falling from great heights.
  • I hope for some fun and humor in the Firestorm scenes. Another hallmark of the character is that Ronnie usually revels in being Firestorm. He loves the powers, the flight, and especially the transmutation ability. I’d like to see Ronnie enjoying himself some.
  • I hope we see more of Ronnie & Professor Stein beyond episode 14. Robbie Amell mentioned on The Flash After Show that he’s scheduled to be in the next episode, but then he’s not sure. He’s hoping he’ll be in an episode at the end of the season. Perhaps we need to let the CW know we want more Firestorm in season 2!

So what did you think of the episode?

Barry struggles to balance his duties as The Flash and his relationship with Linda Park (Malese Jow), and Joe (Jesse L.

Firestorm on Infinite Earths — Countdown Arena

CROSSOVER! Everybody loves a crossover! Today FIRESTORM FAN joins the illustrious Super-Blog Team-Up! Several different blogs have combined forces today under the banner of Parallel Worlds and Alternate Realities! Each blog in this crossover will focus on alternate versions of their favorite characters and niches.

Super-Blog Team Up

Today here at FIRESTORM FAN we’re going to feature… well… Firestorm. Specifically the Firestorm characters from parallel worlds that appeared in Countdown: Arena!

Countdown: Arena was a four issue mini-series, published weekly from December 5 thru December 26, 2007. It was written by Keith Champagne, penciled by Scott McDaniel, inked by Andy Owens, and colored by Guy Major. Spinning off of Countdown, the series features Monarch (Nathaniel Adam) as he organizes battles among various characters from the 52 Earths of the Multiverse. Monarch’s secret agenda was to allow the character of Breach to escape the Arena trap, knowing he would recruit additional multiverse incarnations of Captain Atom to battle Monarch. Once this “Captain Atom Brigade” confronted Monarch, he absorbed their powers making himself even more powerful. Finally, he gathered those Arena victors he deemed worthy in preparation for a battle against the Monitors.

I bought this series as it was coming out, however, I had little enthusiasm for the series until actually reading it. I had grown weary of the Countdown saga and expected this to be just another fight-fight-fight book. While there was certainly a lot of fighting, I was pleasantly surprised to find there was a lot to like about this series! First off, Scott McDaniel pencils? Yes, please!! I fell in love with McDaniel’s work on Daredevil several years before, so it was a treat to see him here. Second, there was a decent story and some intrigue in this series. Third, we got to meet Firestorm from Earth 12 and Quantum-Storm from Earth 37!

Quantum-Storm from Earth 37

As mentioned, Monarch (a.k.a. Nathaniel Adam, a.k.a. Captain Atom) was the “big bad” of this mini-series. He gathered numerous characters from around the multiverse and locked them in an Arena to do battle with one another. Monarch carefully selected trios of characters to battle each other (i.e. Batman from Gotham By Gaslight, The Bat from JSA Liberty Files, and vampire Batman from Red Rain). For Captain Atom (alternate versions of Monarch himself), he selected Breach (from the primary DC Earth), Captain Atom of the Atomic Knights (Earth 38), and Quantum-Storm (Earth 37). While these were Captain Atom analogs, Quantum-Storm is actually a hybrid of the Captain Atom concept and the Firestorm concept!

Quantum-Storm was the fusion of Ronnie Raymond and Nathaniel Adam. Adam operated as the on-board adviser, much like Professor Stein did in the original Firestorm. The costume was nearly identical to the original Firestorm outfit, except yellow had been replaced with the same silvery-blue worn by the post-Crisis Captain Atom. We didn’t learn much about Quantum-Storm, but he appeared in all four issues and died heroically trying to defeat Monarch.

Quantum-Storm from Countdown: Arena -- Firestorm from Earth 37

Firestorm from Earth 12

Over on Earth 12, we catch a brief glimpse of this world’s Firestorm. He’s hanging out with a young Green Lantern moments before GL is abducted for the Arena event. On this Earth, Green Lantern is the grandson of Green Lantern Hal Jordan. That implies these are the next generation of heroes. Looking at Firestorm’s costume design and flaming wings, perhaps he is the child (or grandchild) of Jason Rusch and Lorraine Reilly. That’s pure speculation, but I can’t help wondering. Below you’ll find his only appearance. Click to enlarge.

Firestorm from Earth 12 -- Countdown: Arena

Not a lot of Firestorm content, but seeing any parallel version of our favorite Nuclear Man is awesome! If you haven’t read it, pick up Countdown: Arena. It’s well worth your time and money!

Back to the Futures End – Issues #28-31

Hey Match-heads, Shag here! Today our good friend Tim Wallace continues his monthly coverage of DC’s weekly event, The New 52: Futures End! Sorry this update is a few weeks late; entirely my fault. Life seems to get in the way of good blogging intentions. If you missed the previous installments, click hereWarning, Tim’s entries contain SPOILERS for the related issues of The New 52: Futures End. Consider yourself warned! Just so no one is confused, this particular entry starts off BEFORE Tim’s post covering big changes for Firestorm

Be sure to follow Tim’s regular work over on his exceptional site, Kord Industries: A Blue Beetle Blog! Get all your Ted Kord, Jaime Reyes, and Dan Garrett goodness there! Get even more Tim-time over at the Legion of Super-Bloggers! You can also stalk Tim on TwitterFacebook, and Google Plus. And now, let’s turn it over to Tim…

Some of this may already be familiar to you (like the events of issue #29 which were so groundbreaking we brought them to you back in November!), while other parts are being revealed for the first time…think of it as the intricacies of time travel…after all we are dealing with a story that has taken place both five and thirty-five years from now! Wibbly wobbly timey…you get the picture.

The New 52: Futures End #28

Five years from now on Cadmus Island, Lois Lane parachutes onto the beach, having taken the leap of faith that Cal/Tim Drake had recommended. The coordinates from her mystery box led her here, but when she encounters an OMAC and gets chased through the jungle she begins to question why. It isn’t any clearer when she finds the Cadmus base, and more OMACs. And it goes from bad to bizarre when she literally trips over herself…or rather the E2 Red Tornado she saw in her vision several issues back!

The New 52: Futures End #28

In Las Vegas, Sergeant Rock and Faraday discuss priorities. What’s more important? Taking down Brother Eye or the unstable Fifty Sue? And like Lenny & Squiggy…at the mere mention of her name, she appears! She’s pretty upset about Deathstroke abandoning her and siding with Brother Eye, so upset she wants him dead! Much to their dismay, she tells Faraday and Rock that she wants to lead a team to take down Brother Eye…and skin Deathstroke alive.

The New 52: Futures End #28

While in New York, Plastique watches as the battle of Batman versus Batman Beyond continues in the fire of what used to be “The Wounded Duck”. It’s several pages of back and forth action, until Terry finally manages to give Bruce the slip.

The New 52: Futures End #28

In another part of town Cal locates Ronnie. He’s concerned about Madison going missing. Ronnie suggests he ask Jason, the leader of their study group, then says if she’s in trouble he’s coming too. Jason’s not with her though. He’s at Yamazake’s home trying to explain about Firestorm…but instead discovers a video of Yamazake’s wife’s death playing on a loop. The doc isn’t home. He’s at his lab with Madison. To make her pay for the sins of her father he plans to force her to be a guinea pig, testing his teleporter.

The New 52: Futures End #29

For all the details, including Ronnie’s sacrifice and the birth of the new Firestorm, see my previous post covering this issue.

The New 52: Futures End #29

The New 52: Futures End #30

On Cadmus Island, Lois has a little talk with herself, the badly damaged E2 Red Tornado. If they’re going to get off this island they need to find a friendly face. Enter Oliver Queen and his Outsiders! Landing at the beach, Ollie and company prepare to bring down Brother Eye, launching an EMP arrow in the hopes of shutting down all electronic systems. Unfortunately the arrow is caught mid-air by the Brother Eye possessed E2 Hawkgirl, and right on her tail feathers is an army of E2 heroes and OMACs. As Ollie leads a small group into the jungle, in search of the Cadmus base, Red Arrow reminds the team not to kill the E2 heroes, their actions are not their own. He does encourage them to kill as many OMACs as they can, though! That works for a bit…until the OMACs pull a “Voltron” and combine into a single giant creature.

The New 52: Futures End #30

Meanwhile Grifter stops Deathstroke from killing Ollie with a shot from a sniper rifle, which gives E2 Lana time to “thonk” Slade on the head with a rock. They run to join Ollie, but Deathstroke is back up and hot on their heels…until Fury shows up and tears his head off.

The New 52: Futures End #30

Barda and Mister Miracle are reunited as the world’s greatest escape artist leads the team back into Cadmus to shut down Brother Eye. They weren’t counting on Brother Eye hosing his consciousness in the altered body of Power Girl though. Even still, Ollie manages to shut down the main system, using the distraction of the Barda/Power Girl fight to his advantage.

The New 52: Futures End #30

E2 Red Tornado tells Lois she knows she won’t make it off the island, and encourages Lois to go and tell the world the truth about the E2 heroes and Cadmus. And finally as an explosion rocks the island, the surviving heroes make their way back to the Arrowboat. But as the last few panels reveal Brother Eye on cell phone and Red Tornado’s eyes flashing back on, we’re left to wonder…are things really over?

The New 52: Futures End #30

The New 52: Futures End #31

In Seattle, at the Queen Foundation headquarters, Lois Lane is holding a press conference. Flanked by heroes from our Earth and Earth 2 she tells the world about Cadmus’ activities, imprisoning, experimenting and controlling the E2 refugees. She’s posted video online to support her claims and calls for Cadmus to be brought to justice for war crimes!

The New 52: Futures End #31

Missing from all this is Oliver Queen himself. He’s still playing “dead”, enjoying retirement on Green Arrow Island with a visit from Animal Man and family. In Siberia, Constantine, his lady friend Midge and Kal-El gather at the site of the Tunguska blast. After her encounter with Brainiac, Midge has lost her marbles, on the plus side though she’s also now something of a Brainiac compass and points them in the right direction. With several thunderous booms, Brainiac appears…inhabiting the body of a large bear. Kal-El orders Constantine to leave while he deals with the villain. Brainiac speaks of a pact, with Superman’s father, and how by coming here “your coming place is spared” (Krypton?).

The New 52: Futures End #31

Another huge explosion and Kal-El is thrown clear of the bear. He scoops up Midge and Constantine and asks what he must do to stop it. Constantine replies “Go home.” (again I ask, Krypton?) On the remains of Cadmus Island, Faraday tries sifting through the rubble, seemingly searching for something (or someone). He finds his way to a secured area, labeled DNA storage, only to find the other side of the door leads to a sheer cliff. The lab was blown into the sea when the island blew up.

The New 52: Futures End #31

Finally in Pittsburgh, the new Firestorm takes a somber journey to Ronnie Raymond’s funeral. It also appears this new union of Jason and Madison may be off to a bumpy start…they can’t figure out how to separate. They bicker a bit, each frustrated by their current situation, but watching from a distance and hearing Jason’s dad speak at Ronnie’s funeral bring them around a bit. As does seeing Cal/Tim at the funeral…but Madison’s not quite ready to let him see her like this, besides she says “even before this happened, we had…issues.”

The New 52: Futures End #31

Ok, definitely more happened in these 4 issues than the last ones…but I can’t help but feel the battle of Cadmus Island went by too fast. It seemed too easy…especially considering how many issues we have left in this series. I guess there are more twists and turns ahead!

Shag here again! That’s it for this month! Thanks again to Tim for this fantastic coverage! Next month Tim will return with further coverage of, The New 52: Futures End! Let us know what you think of this weekly series in the comments.
