Big Bang Theory – Sheldon Wears Firestorm

This past week on The Big Bang Theory, the character of Sheldon was spotted wearing a t-shirt featuring Firestorm!  The episode was entitled “The Russian Rocket Reaction” and you can see the shirt below.

Below is a close-up of the t-shirt image.  We featured it here on FIRESTORM FAN back in 2009.  It’s an unusual collection of characters: Red Tornado, Doctor Fate, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, and everybody’s favorite Nuclear Man.  Near as I can figure, the artwork on this shirt must have been produced in conjunction with the second wave of Super Powers action figures.  These happen to be the exact five superheroes that were released in that wave.  Otherwise, I can’t think of a time these particular heroes were together for an image like this.  You can order yourself one of these great-looking shirts from Graphitti Designs by clicking here.

My thanks to match-head Ken Deemer for the heads-up about this Firestorm sighting!

    Still playing catch-up on reading posts, but I try to chime in on new ones as I can. My girlfriend got hooked on this show when it launched in syndication last month. She went out and bought all four seasons on DVD, and makes me watch a couple or three episodes a day. I thought about trying to screencap all the super-hero reference, but there are so dang many, and I’ve seen them in such a short span of time, I don’t want to touch it. Dig the shirts, though.

    I’m pretty sure that Lenard & Sheldon have a Firestorm (1st Jason) figure in their Apt. as well.
    You can see it on a wide shot if the livingroom.
    Usually over the shoulder of which ever actor is on the Far right of the screen.

  3. Either earlier in this episode or the one before he was wearing an orange Aquaman tee that I was wearing at the time I was watching. Blew my mind! LOL

    Sheldon loves the right stuff. :)

    Yeah Ken’s right, I’ve definitely noticed the Jason figure before 😀

    Clearly the shirt is featuring Red Tornado and guest-starring Firestorm!

    @Frank and @Doug – I was totally thinking of you two when I posted this shirt! Feel free to repost on your sites, if you like!

    I just watched an episode where the Jason figure was clear as day. It was Season 4, Episode 11: The Justice League Recombination. Leonard is dressed like Green Lantern, and he’s arguing with the guys about talking Penny into going to the costume party as Wonder Woman. It’s still in the player, so let me rewind… It starts at 15:01, is well lit, is so firmly in frame as to deserve pay as an extra, and stays on screen for eight consecutive seconds. It’s dying for a screencap. The fruit doesn’t hang any lower than that.

    P.S., Raj kept whining about being Aquaman, is willing to be Wonder Woman, and yet doesn’t even consider Martian Manhunter. All that whispering to Wolowitz might as well be telepathy…

    @Frank – You rock! Thank you sir!

  10. […] Bang Theory is well-known for promoting DC Comics’ characters. A few months back we discussed Sheldon wearing a t-shirt featuring Firestorm. It’s been known by matchheads who watch the show that a Firestorm action figure lurches in […]
