    How many Firestorms do we freaking need? There's at least 20 or 30 in the book and they completely water down the uniqueness of the character to the point I couldn't care less what happened to any of the characters. Which is good because you can actually see the shift in editorial direction when they decide to kill them all off, along with writing off the Zithertech nonplots. Then we have a zero issue which brings the character back in line with previous incarnations where 2 people share Firesto How many Firestorms do we freaking need?

Then we have a zero issue which brings the character back in line with previous incarnations where 2 people share Firestorm's body. I can see why this directionless book was cancelled after the next volume. It is filled with dangling unexplained plot threads.

    Unfortunately, Simone's unceremonious departure from this title damaged it just as badly as I feared. First, we get an infinite number of Firestorms, totally muddying the waters of the title (and taking any character time away from our protagonists). I was actually initially pleased to see Firehawk brought into the Firestorm concept, but she turns out to be a total non-entity (like pretty much everyone else). And then after six issues of this foolishness, the author decides to sweep it all under Unfortunately, Simone's unceremonious departure from this title damaged it just as badly as I feared.

I was actually initially pleased to see Firehawk brought into the Firestorm concept, but she turns out to be a total non-entity (like pretty much everyone else). And then after six issues of this foolishness, the author decides to sweep it all under the rug. Meanwhile, the comic is also embracing the worst house style excesses of the Nu52. Supporting cast are unceremoniously escorted off-screen, while we get a hopelessly decompressed ever-cliffhanging storyline that's mostly fighting. It's exactly what I hate about the Nu52's bad storytelling, and it's something that Simone had mostly avoided when she was in charge. There is a bit of good storytelling in these six issues, but it's about two issues worth of story at best. Oh, and we get storytelling that's quite muddy too, often making it hard to tell what's going on. I dunno if it's the artist or the new writer, but it was unfortunate, especially in the first half of the volume. The 0 issue that ends things is a little better. I mean, it's a coherent story (other than the fact that I was surprised to learn that Ronnie and Jason had lost their abilities in the previous arc), and it actually restores the Jason + Ronnie + (faceless) supporting cast dynamic. The return of classic Firestorm was a bit more surprising. I mean, I guess I shouldn't complain whenever DC ditches a Nu52 concept, but they seemed to have something else that was working here (when it wasn't being written horribly), so it was kinda backsliding all its own. Anywho: a very disappointing follow-up to Simone's interesting beginning.

    I really want to like Firestorm. I really, really do. As said before in my review of the first volume of this series, I've always thought he was one of the coolest looking superheroes that there is. The fire, the atomic powers... Damn. He's just cool looking. For all the awesome visuals and artwork this book has going for it, the story is just not that memorable. There are even OTHER cool looking Firestorms in this story from all over the world. When two of them get together and combine their po I really want to like Firestorm. I really, really do.

There are even OTHER cool looking Firestorms in this story from all over the world. When two of them get together and combine their powers, they morph into there monstrous, bad ass entities. Such cool concepts here that never really deliver to their full potential. I may keep this one on my shelves just to say, "Man... Look how awesome these characters look." But I'll breathe a sigh, knowing that this book could have been so much more.

    The book began to break down once Ethan van Sciver left. I'm not saying it was great under him, but once he left, the remaining issues were just trying to quickly wrap-up the storylines he started - they were then rushed and weak to make way for the next writer.

    Couldn't wrap my mind around what's happening in the plot most of the time, but the artistic side of this is quite good. Both the designs and layout are very pleasant to look at.

Rogue Firestorm Protocols are popping up all over the world, and Ronnie and Jason have been separated. While Ronnie finds himself teamed with a Russian Firestorm Protocols agent named Pozhar, Jason teams with a French Firestorm Protocol agent named Firehawk. As both seek the stop the threat of the Firestorms, the real danger is exposed and Jason uncovers something about Zithertech that could bring the whole Firestorm Protocols program crashing down. Written by Joe Harris and Ethan Van Sciver and featuring art by Van Sciver, Yildiray Cinar, Daniel HDR, Marlo Alquiza, Norm Rapmund, and Waldon Wong, The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men 2: The Firestorm Protocols followed the first volume of the New 52 series relaunch The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men 1: God Particle. This volume marks the end of the The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men title before a slight name change to The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man. Firestorm was one of those characters I had a connection to growing up. It wasn’t that he was a great character or I really liked him, but he was “new”. I remember when Firestorm was introduced to the Super Friends series and always felt that I grew up with him a bit. Unfortunately, Firestorm has always been a really inconsistent character and the New 52 version didn’t help much. The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men series is too full of techno-garble. The basic fun of Firestorm was that he was a little bit Green Lantern (thought projections) and a little bit Superman (strength and flying). This was combined with a schizophrenic personality. I never got into the Jason Rusch character and missed the original Stein/Ronnie combo. Here you have a Firestorm program and tons of Firestorms…it just makes it lose all its appeal. This is aided by a rather splash-paged filled comic book. There was a lot of fighting in this volume and pages upon pages of flashy fights that seemed repetitive due to the similarities of the villains. I do like that the Firehawk character was brought into the New 52 universe and it was fun to have the Justice League International stop by…but I would have preferred a solid story that didn’t drag. The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men 2: The Firestorm Protocols is a slight improvement over the first volume which was filled with tons of bad dialogue, but it still has a ways to go before it would be a “good” comic. Firestorm unfortunately doesn’t get the chance to become a good comic because the next storyline is the final storyline. The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men 2: The Firestorm Protocols is followed by the final volume The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man 3: Takeover.

    So finally there is the Firestorm here. And many stereotypical firestorms as well. Indian with multiple arms. French which keeps on saying stuff like "mon dieu" everytime something unexpected happens. And the tough but righteous British firestorm. And of course let's not forget about villain Firestorm..ohh you guessed it.... Russian firestorm :D This book is just a way to get rid of other firestorms which have been created in the first book. This book should be read only by hardcore fans or for p So finally there is the Firestorm here. And many stereotypical firestorms as well. Indian with multiple arms.

    So, slightly improved over the first six issues I'm still not crazy about the series so far. Wrapping up the origin story of the New 52 Firestorm, issues 7 through 12 bring the threat of the world wide rogue Firestorm Protocols to a close. Slightly a better reader than the first volume what mostly makes this worthwhile is the last story in the collection, issue 0, that introduces the complete Firestorm of Ronnie Raymond as the body with Jason Rusch as the mind floating in the background.

    This book is getting three stars for the art, but the story was only worth two. I think this book suffered from a change in writers and a forced change in plot direction. There are so many great characters and ideas that are never given the chance to be properly explored or completed. The book is rushed and becomes extremely disjointed. However, the artwork is really lovely with so many cool Firestorm designs, varied panel layouts, and truly wonderful coloring.

    Good story overall. It seems like they are bringing the story closer to pre New 52

    Ronnie i Jason dostają monopol na protokół firestorma. I dobrze, bo zamieszanie wokół konfliktu wszystkich międzynarodowych firestormów było strasznie chaotyczne. Nawet JLI się przez to przewinęła.
