EXCLUSIVE: 'THE FURY OF FIRESTORM' #5 3-Page Preview

What will the repercussions of Ronnie and Jason's volatile relationship be?

DC Comics recently gave us an exclusive first look at the upcoming fifth issue of THE FURY OF FIRESTORM and what happens when Zither pits the two volatile heroes against one another. Sounds like it would be a dangerous combination, no?

In the last issue of Firestorm, the book turned to "sinister forces" in the Middle East who wanted nothing more than to "get their hands on their very own Nuclear Men." It was there that the writers introduced to readers the idea the existence of Nuclear Men is incredibly dangerous, especially when they don't get along. If you've been following THE FURY OF FIRESTORM then you may already know that Ronnie and Jason don't exactly get along very often, and perhaps that is what the creative team was preparing us for.

Written by Gail Simone and Ethan Van Sciver
Art by Yildiray Cinar and Norm Rapmund
Cover by Ethan Van Sciver

Ronnie and Jason have never agreed on anything, and now it's all-out war as the mysterious Zither pits them against each other! But with the mystery of the Rogue Firestorms spiraling out of control, the guys will have to come to an agreement – or risk serious fallout!

We were first introduced to Zither early on in this ongoing series and it seems that the mysterious character might be getting closer and closer to capturing Firestorm. Will Zither and her organization succeed? Will Ronnie and Jason allow themselves to be manipulated by Zither? Check out three pages from the upcoming fifth issue below and let us know what you think of THE FURY OF FIRESTORM.

This series is a travesty! What the hell happened to the superb characterization of Firestorm? (shakes head)

I like the series and the idea of them having other Firestorms to fight other than each other (if they would stop fighting each other for ten minutes)

This should be another series they cancel and replace with something better.

This series has sooo much more potential and i wish it would live up to it... That was a pretty badass moment tho if you ask me. "Fair enough. Firestorm."
