The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol. 1: The God Particle

The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men Vol. 1, which comprises the first six issues of the series co-written by Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver, is just a mess. Even if the story didn’t keep flipping on a dime, rather than earning some of the twists and turns, there’s scant excitement to be had in a book where almost every super-creature is a derivation of Firestorm. It renders the story boring and unimaginative, which is a shame, because the relationship between jock Ronnie Raymond and brainiac Jason Rusch has some better potential than the scream/team up/scream/team up dynamic established here.

Some of the plot points are intriguing and pay homage to what came before in the “old 52”—the idea of nuclear men substituting for a country’s weapons program is cool; the initial team of terrorists/operatives was villainous and delightful; the conspiracy and mystery behind the Firestorms and progenitor Martin Stein has potential; and the integration of family added great color and potential drama. But the puzzle pieces don’t quite fit together.

Yildiray Cinar’s art is good, despite the fact that a high percentage of characters have the same design. His art would be put to greater use on a better-written and conceived book.
