|Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond) (DCUC wave 2)|
|Figure (and number):||Wave 2 Figure 1|
|First Released||DCUC Wave 2|
|Points of Articulation:||23|
When a mortally wounded Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond) fell from the sky, he cascaded Jason Rusch in atomic energies. Jason thus bonded with the "Firestorm Matrix" and gained the ability to fuse his body with others. Eventually, Jason merged with Professor Martin Stein, original host of the Firestorm Matrix to carry on the mantle and mission of Firestorm.

Sculpt Change Edit
Due to fan complaints, the Horsemen created a completely new head for Ronnie Raymond. The original sculpt, shown below, featured the same basic head and flame piece as the Jason Rusch variant, but with a screaming face.
This is the regular figure for Firestorm-the variant being Jason Rusch, the new African-American Firestorm. When the first few shots of the Firestorm prototype appeared on the net, fans clamored for a change. And, boy, was the result fantastic! The new head designed by the Four Horsemen is one of the best likenesses of the Classic look of Firestorm. A wonderful touch added to the final version was the switch to translucent plastic for the flames. Though Firestorm’s body appears to be based on a generic build, it is retooled to accurately represent the loose sleeves and shoulder area. The sun motif is also sculpted in. However the chest etching, upon closer inspection gives away the fact that it is meant for the variant, Jason Rusch (who oddly enough is the one who appears on cardbacks instead of Ronnie). For all the detail of the top part of his body, it is interesting to note that his boots are simply painted over. Overall, this figure is a must-have for DC and Firestorm fans.
