The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #13 is the first issue by the new creative team of writer/artist Dan Jurgens and finished inks by Ray McCarthy. In the issue, Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch, who together form Firestorm, struggle to balance their responsibilities as high school students with that of being a super-hero, as they are targeted by a mysterious organization.
New creative teams often make great jumping on points for interested readers and Jurgens drives that point home, delivering what essentially reads as a first issue. Jurgens introduces the core characteristics of Ronnie and Jason completely through naturally flowing dialogue. No heavy narration here. Readers also meet the book’s supporting cast and are introduced to a number of new villains.
