    1. I’m going to be straight with my opinion. No pussy-footing around. I didn’t like this. I thought it was angst driven and boring. I didn’t like either of the main characters because they were both asses in their own way. Jason was a smart ass. He could have been likable except that he thought he was better than everyone else. Ronnie was just a boring jock. They tried to make him a little more likeable when they pointed out that he didn’t bully the geeky kids because he knew that they woul [...]


    2. I always remember Firestorm from the old DC comics I got from the late 80's when I was a kid. Firestorm was always a D-list hero with very vibrant, colorful, and surreal art and physic/particle splash pages. I know next to nothing about the character or his history though, so this New 52 reboot should have been a great jumping off point for me.Unfortunately the Fury of Firestorm introductory arc felt like a bunch of really good ideas half executed. Although I liked the idea of an international c [...]


    3. Professor Stein has created Firestorm as a weapon for every nuclear weapon owning country to have as a threat deterrent of mutual destruction. Yeah, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me either. Anyway, there's an insanely violent group of mercenaries rounding up the Firestorm canisters and straight up murdering everyone that was even in the general vicinity. Jason (a high school nerd) opens up the canister and turns Ronnie (high school jock) and himself into Firestorms. They get away from the me [...]


    4. Man, this was a tough one to get through.This book has a lot of interesting components, but the ingredients just don't go well together. I really like the idea of multiple Firestorms, each representing a different country. Even more than that, I like the fact that they are powered by the God Particle. This book though, is excessively violent in certain points, and nonsensical in many points. One of the reviews in the book call Firestorm a B list character. I would have to disagree. Green Arrow i [...]




    5. Another stinker. Unconvincing jock/geek interaction, unconvincing super-smart geek, boring hero, stupendously-sad-moment that was neither sad nor a moment, etc. Ugh.


    6. An interesting premise to relaunch a not so known hero (at the time) in the New52 initiative by DC Comics. Taking the concept of the Firestorm and making it a protocol for a living weapon for every country that can achieve its creation, but missing some of the elements that niche fans might hold dear. Cinar's art is good and Simone script is competent enough, only let down by some of the teenage drama around the two leads. For new readers, its a good starting point for new readers, and for longt [...]


    7. I saw this only got mediocre reviews, so I was surprised that I actually liked it quite a bit. I've never heard of Firestorm before so this was my introduction.Two kids get zapped and become nuclear Firestorms but when they get mad at each other they meld into a super nuclear guy called Fury, so kind of like a nuclear Incredible Hulk. The story involves underground governments, big corporation, and terrorists with lots of action. The dialogue is pretty cheesy, but the art is good.


    8. I'm still on a streak of tearing through stuff on my friend's Comixology account. 90% of what I've read on there has been stuff from DC Comics New 52 lineup. Since the New 52 came out in 2011, this is the 19th of their relaunch titles that I have read. It is also the 20th New 52 title because one of the books I read came from the 2nd wave.This series wasn't even on my radar until I found a list of all of the New 52 books that told how many issues each series had, which wave they were released in [...]


    9. The first time I ever saw Firestorm in a comic was probably 1981 or 82 in one of the few random Justice League comics I got as a small kid. The second time I saw Firestorm in a comic was September 2011 with DC’s New 52 reboots. What I’m saying is, Firestorm always seemed, to me, to be one of those characters they just didn’t know what to do with. I was looking forward to finally checking him out proper when the first issue of THE FURY OF FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MEN and its first story arc [...]


    10. Reprints The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #1-6 (November 2011-April 2012). The Firestorm Protocol is a new form of weapon that gives its user with extreme power. When classmates Jason Rusch and Ronnie Raymond are forced to activate the Firestorm Protocol when their school is attacked by men searching for the Protocol, the two must find a way to work together despite their differences. Being Firestorm is harder than it appears, and Jason, Ronnie and their friend Tonya are now accused terror [...]


    11. The big flaw of this book is the plotting and pacing. Each single issue reads fine on its own. Read as a whole, it does not work to tell a coherent story. New characters are constantly introduced, and many only appear in a single issue. New readers get almost no explanation of how any of Firestorm's powers work, despite being an origin story. In what seems like an effort to avoid the sillier aspects of comics, this one leaned into being incomprehensible.Very little time is spent with the teens t [...]


    12. I've wanted to read up on Firestorm for a long time. I've always thought the hero was one of the coolest LOOKING characters out there. I'd read some issues from a prior volume a long time ago, but never really found a Firestorm story that knocked my socks off. I had actually read the first issue of THIS volume somewhere along the way before and remembered liking it, but I didn't stick with it on a monthly basis. Anyway Enter The New 52 Firestorm The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men. For those [...]


    13. Remember the exciting conclusion of Brightest Day, when Ronnie returned, but then learned that Firestorm was going to explode in 90 days. Cue an exciting new Firestorm series? Well, this isn't it. In fact, it ignores that major plotline totally thanks to the reboot of the DC universe.With that snark aside, the Nu52 reinvention of Firestorm is actually interesting. Simone correctly puts Rusch and Raymond front and center, offering the comic two strong protagonists and an interesting rivalry. Sure [...]


    14. It's not quite the Firestorm: The Nuclear Man of the 1980s, but it's interesting in its own right. Some of the writing is a little loose and incomplete, but the themes and ideas are pretty interesting. Class differences, race relations, the good and bad of the powerful emotions that teenagers are grappling with, and the idea that greed and powerful interests might manipulate others for their own gains.The villains are corporations with shadowy operatives trying to take control of the world over [...]


    15. This collection features some good artwork and a handful of good story elements (the giggling terrorists and the monstrous original Firestorm, for example). But that's not enough to save an otherwise underwhelming reboot. Firestorm is the tale of two high school enemies who somehow gain the ability to turn into fiery flying dudes, and also gain the ability to combine into a giant fiery flying dude. For some reason international terrorists are after them, and there are also other Firestorms from [...]


    16. Upon reading this I think the average DC Comics reader will be able to spot where Gail Simone's hand influenced Ethan Van Sciver her co-writer until she left the title. This is one of several of the new DC 52 titles that I decided to sample. The plus with Simon's writing is the emphasis on character and that our heroes are not perfect.The title is a mix of concepts from the character's previous runs. Instead of Professor Martin Stein being part of the mix, the conjoined being is Ronnie Raymond a [...]


    17. Fun idea turns into a story that isn't much fun to read.Firestorm used to be two people that merged to become one super hero. In the new version they are two guys who each become a version of Firestorm. Being very different character types, they use their powers very differently and then can merge into an even bigger, more powerful, harder to control version when things look bad.Cool stuff, right? Nope, because all this happens in the modern, gritty real world, so there are conspiracies all over [...]


    18. When I reviewed Static Shock last night, I said there were plenty of worse New 52 books, and this is exactly the sort of thing I had in mind. The basic idea is sound-ish: foreground the odd couple dynamic which I vaguely know was always part of the character by having a jock and a nerd each able to become Firestorms, and then combine into a ruddy great mega-Firestorm. But this is almost immediately diluted by having a seemingly endless supply of other Firestorm variants pop up within a mere six [...]


    19. Look, I really like Ethan Van Sciver's writing, as well as Gail Simone's (she's listed as co-plotter), but this book was just bad. Firestorm is never the greatest of characters, and the whole battle between the two previous Firestorms being played out in a single book just doesn't work. What is Firestorm's power? He can change thing's elements; at least I think that's mentioned once in the book, but it doesn't really play out in the story. Instead we get completely random things (Fury firestorm? [...]


    20. I enjoy this volume of Firestorm, but I would be lying if I said it is a high caliber comic. I don't believe it is terrible- in fact, there are times where the volume becomes very Philip K. Dickian to where I don't know who is on whose side, and when done correctly, that can be great. Vol. 1: God Particle does that correctly, and it provides some amazing sequences and interesting concepts, such as Fury and mirrored panels that relate parallels reflective in both protagonists' lives. The fault of [...]


    21. There's something to be said about slightly cheesy superhero comic books: they're fun. The Fury of Firestorm is enjoyable superhero material that unfortunately ends on a cliff-hanger. The dynamic of the two lead characters was interesting and there are good character moments but the book did feel a bit rushed, especially when both of the new Firestorms are able to jump into using their powers with no explanation of how they work nor any time for experimentation. The artwork was normal superhero [...]


    22. Now this is a serious reboot of the original Firestorm character. Unfortunately, this isn't anywhere near as interesting as the original Firestorm. And doubly unfortunately, the original Firestorm wasn't all that interesting to begin with. The only cool part of the original book --Ronnie Raymond's combining with Professor Stein to form Firestorm -- is completely absent here. The characters shouting "Firestorm" when they turn into the super-character (and there are numerous Firestorms here, kinda [...]


    23. Unfortunately, this book kind of confirms my belief that DC has gone down the toilet. Everything is bigger! Badder! Grosser! The characters are more extreme! The plot is thinner and less logical! The storytelling dubious!This is the Firestorm reboot for the New 52. Is the idea of Firestorm as nuclear weapon interesting? Kind of. But when there are multiple (like many many) Firestorms, and the teenage protagonists are so angry, I just find it tiring. I like the wisecracking, loser teenage Firesto [...]


    24. There is a firestorm! here is a firestorm! this is good firestorm! that one is bad! they are exploding, destroying stuff and changing stuff. I expect something different but this book was not so bad actually. Easy reading and kinda interesting approach to superhero stuff. I started reading this because of Futures end. I did not know the origin of Firestorm. And I must say you will not learn it in this book anyway Well to some extend yes but you will end up with incomplete firestorm transformatio [...]


    25. I am not a Firestorm fan, but I have to give the writers credit for truly rebooting this superhero, being bold and creating 2 main Firestorms (who unite as Fury) and the idea of national and rogue Firestorms globally.They limit the wacky talking inside the head scenes for Good God.nd just wish they would just spell it out.I'm way higher on this than most.The heros go to pray after the death's of 2,000 while the nasty Russian discusses how he is Godless.


    26. The book has a lot of potental but it is unrealized. The story really jumps around a lot and does not have a good flow. The main characters are really not developed. Even though we are familiar with Ronnie and Jason we never really get to know who they are. They both just jump into being Firestorm. The artwork is very nice and the backgrounds are excellent and are a bright spot in the series.


    27. Welcome to the valley of meh everything is strictly average. such as this one! I enjoyed the action in it, pretty cool fight scenes all over. but not a good story. heh, not even an average story. the melodrama between two firestorms are really really cheesy. but still, the art is good. so, i enjoyed it, but still, it stays in the land of meh. because 10 minutes after finishing it, i forgot the name of the villain and the masked woman.


    28. This should have been great - that's the feeling I got from the premise, the whole idea behind Firestorm. But it wasn't. It was mediocre and made overly complex by the political commentary and the typical, American teenager bit was mind-numbing. But, I still feel there is potential and I hope the next volume can deliver.
