The only thing you need to know to enjoy this story is that I have been teasing readers with promises of Firestorm for the last year or so. He was mentioned in a conversation between Red and Ralph a few issues ago, but this is his actual debut. That is why Red Tornado and Aquaman don't know who he is....yet.
I based my story off of the classic DC Comics Presents team-up by Gerry Conway and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez (PBHN) but simplified it to fit into seven pages. Sorry if it seems rushed.
Almost immediately after I decided to do the Superman-Firestorm team-up, I also decided to team Aquaman with Red Tornado against the Firestorm villain Typhoon. A comment made by Rob Kelly and Shag Matthews on their Fire and Water podcast about this team fighting this villain made me decide to actually do it. (Oh, and give their podcast a listen. It's awesome fun.)
I hope you enjoy my take on these characters. If you like what you see, please read the earlier 30+ adventures, and let me know what you think!
