When Dwayne McDuffie took over writing duties for the Jason Rusch Firestorm series he already knew the title was heading for cancellation. He only got to write three issues but it still some of the best writing and some of the best fight scenes that any of the Firestorms have ever gotten.

Here's three pages from issue #33.

I love

"At least I'm not Jewish"
"Yes we are"
"Oh right, we are"

And beating the bad guys too fast to actually be able to use your routine.

I never read any of it (as a lifelong Ronnie hater I've been kind of Firestorm-averse) but this makes me want to read more.

lol You're right. I suggested the two due to being fire based..but a better match...Hohenheim vs. Firestorm. lol Then again Hohenheim can't fight..maybe..Father vs. Firestorm?

Oh how this makes me wish Dwayne had a longer run on Firestorm. It probably could of been on of those feel good series like Ultimate Spidey or Mark Waid's run on The Flash.

Am reading this next to someone who said she's not sure who Dwayne McDuffie was, but a lot of people she knows are sad that he's gone. So I just turned my screen to show her those pages and said "That's why we miss him."

The thing about ridiculously overpowered characters like Firestorm that isn't taken advantage of much is that they CAN goof around like this because they can handle just about anything your average crook dishes out. Nowadays, crimefighting is seeeeeeeerious business - unless you're a 'comedy' hero, you're not allowed to crack wise. Personally, I think that's a shame - it makes comics that much less entertaining.

Oh right, we are. Love this guy.

Heheh. It's difficult to make snark work so well for a character from the get-go. Most people overdo it and make it annoying.

The "Oh right, we are" bit does make me wonder--is it public knowledge that Firestorm are two people bonded in one body?

Anyway, that was a pretty fun scene. :)

The Bumm. It is important.

It feels so good to read fun comics, doesn't it?

I don't know why "Shooty McBigot" cracked me up, but it did. This made me smile all the way through -- and I really like when comics do that.
