  1. I've always liked Firestorm's design, powers, and the dynamic of 2 people making the hero. But somehow, I didn't regularly collect his comic. When this issue came out, I was in college (yes, I'm old), and would frequently skim the comic at the local Food Lion. I was finding myself "skimming" them longer and longer, and nobody called me on it, so yeah, I have fond memories of this run. I did reread the entire volume earlier this year, and it's AMAZING!

    IMHO, I would suggest Firestorm Annual #5, as it catches the reader up with the recent events in the series, and shows exactly what happened before this issue. The full experience starts in issue #62, but the annual catches you up nicely. Plus it guest stars the JLI and Suicide Squad! LOVE!

    Hilarious episode as always, Crusaders!
