Might be a good thing. The comic wasn't very good, and if she's gone, I can happily drop it.

Firestorm was hands down one of my most anticipated titles in the relaunch. It's also one of the ones I least liked. Unfortunately, I don't see a bright future for this title even if she is replaced. Which sucks as I've loved the character since his second run.

If its no good, why wait until she's gone to drop it?

I'm probably hoping that the few issues might improve in quality plus I like the character.

Its not like it was very good. Maybe they can get a better writer on it but I doubt it anyone can make this rebooted firestorm work. Its a great concept ruined. Wheres Dan Jolley when we need him?

Or anyone else's. This whole 2 teenagers with racial issues with each other thing is lame. And killing off Stein is almost as lame as killing off both Kents.

Personally I think the book sucks more because of Ethan than Gail, but that might be wishful thinking.

I feel the same way because usually Gail is a better writer than this.

After reading Batgirl I dont think so. She has a certain niche and this isnt it. She should have stuck to Secret Six and Birds of Prey. Those are the kinda books she does well with.

Well, yeah, but Batgirl was a bit better than Firestorm which in my book means Ethan dragged her down even further. That's my belief and I'm going to stick with it. :lol:

But I do agree with you. Gail is much better on team books, especially the darker toned ones.

I disagree. Gail's All-New Atom was a book very VERY much like what Firestorm should be, and it was fantastic
