Duck and cover
With the duo now joined and operating independently of their control, the terrorists that attacked the school previously are facing a threat that they had not counted on. The portrayal of Firestorm here is an interesting twist, as separate nuclear men the two are in complete control, but merged together they form a separate entity. This depiction is in my opinion a better one overall for the character as it adds a lot more to the character dynamics. As the issue proceeds the Ronnie and Jason determine that they cannot go home and are stuck with themselves and friend Tonya. With the return of the group who was after them more melees break out, but does initially turn out well for them. I thought this issue did a good job on building on the previous, and giving it a bit more meaning as the interplay between the characters is a bit more profound and as the the plot becomes more developed.
