Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men gets a whole new direction in October as Dan Jurgens takes over as writer/artist on the series.
A Word From Our Sponsors... More Below!
With the game-changing events of issues #12 and #0, Dan Jurgens will be doing a genuine revamp starting with issue #13 to shake-up the franchise by bringing new concepts to the book, leading to his introduction of a "disturbing new force" in the DCU this Fall.
Firestorm should be a fun book. I've always felt that you can often find the keys to a character's success in the first 15-20 issues of his original appearances. It's no different for Firestorm.
As for the "status" of Jason and Ronnie as "twin Firestorms", this week's issue #0 showed that the two teens once again merge to become Firestorm. Jurgens promises that issue #13 will further unveil the status of both Ronnie and Jason and how they relate to each other.
I'm approaching this as though the world, at large, is perplexed by the Firestorm problem. Multiple characters with that power have been identified, some good, some the opposite. No one knows for sure what happened. Are they all alive? Some dead? All dead? If there's only one left, did he kill the rest?
This will form an important part of the book's atmosphere.
Jurgens admits to love drawing Firestorm! "The character has great visual appeal and a unique look. It's very easy to add some sense of drama and power to him."
Jurgens also teased upcoming events and story-lines:
- Multiple characters with the Firestorm power have been identified, some good, some the opposite. No one knows for sure what happened. Are they all alive? Some dead? All dead? If there's only one left, did he kill the rest?
- Captain Atom will become involved through a connection with the villains DataXen and Black Trident. There will be a connection there, which will lead to an inevitable collision.
- Issue #15 promises a "shocking conclusion" that give the first hints of a "disturbing new force" in the DCU.
