View Full Version : Firestar Appreciation

Okay, since we all know that Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends is more canon than anything else, we all know Firestar used to be an X-Man. And never had a bad, short haircut or breast cancer. And Thunderbird could turn into a bear.

Logically, she needs to return to the mag that introduced her. That made her. That is less than without her. Not greater than. Not equal to. Less than.

She must become an X-Man and date a hot team member to rub in Vance's face that he's slumming it with Ultra Girl. *cough*rebound*cough*

I think she might have to get a mastectomy (per Marvel Divas), so he might able to muster up some interest.

Well Firestar is really hot (in both the words meanings) and I think her episode "A Firestar is born" was the best episode of the entire Spider-Man and his amazing friends series.

It was really too bad that she quit being a superhero during the Civil War.

The only thing worse than relegating Firestar back into the void (ala Dazzler in the 90s) would be to force her into the X-Men (ala Dazzler now). For years I longed for her addition to the team but it would be pointless now as they're all fighting for face time in The Scott and Emma Show.

I'd certainly not oppose a guest starring spot... Just not long term so as not to be reduced to an endless loop of cameos (Say it with me... ala Dazzler). Regardless, I'd definitely like to see more of her and as the strong, determined young woman she grew to be... not the sheepish retro backslide she was in Marvel Divas.

... and was she always freckled?!

I really like Firestar from the cartoon (which is LOL if you catch it now) & her 80's mini (which is one of the first mini's I read).

And let's not forget Kitty/Sprite had a totally slutty costume & Thunderbird could turn into a bear and stuff in the X-Men episodes. I think it was the X-Men reunion that Firestar & Iceman attended. (It was neat.)

Isn't firestar busy slumming it with the Young Allies which is basically a team of some up and comers like Nomad and Arana combined with failed Heroes like Firestar and Gravition. I mean honestly when u take your orders from a girl who has been a hero from far less time then u and isn't a tactical genius, you know your a failed hero.

Paj Meen Ah
10-03-2010, 06:08 AM
Firestar being on Utopia would make a lot of sense I think. She kinda has no place, and that's what Utopia is for. The kinda extraneous mutants that weren't strictly x-related previously (like Namor).

Plus I liked the fact Firestar was an X-Man in the Ultimate Universe (for about 2 minutes), though she is coming back.

She should stay with Young Allies. McKeever writes her well.

Once that ends, I'd rather see her in Avengers Academy rather than in the X-Books.

I've always wanted to see her on the team since I thought she WAS before I started reading comics. Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends lied! To a child! And Kitty can have a friend to bash/annoy Emma with.

I understand the argument for Firestar on Avengers Academy...

but there is writing potential for Firestar on the X-men. She hasn't been down that road in the 616 yet.

A team recruiting you, or offering you safe haven, that is co-led by the woman who abused you?

10-03-2010, 10:54 AM
In the 90s, I always wanted to see her reunite with Emma and the living Hellions in a story. She, Warpath, Empath, Magma and Tarot should have been given a mini. I'd still go for it now and include some of the Necrosha members, assuming they are still out there somewhere

Speaking of her though, what happened to her cancer?

ManiacalWon

I thought that Pym or Richards gave her a suit that drained the excess radiation from her body. Then she learned how to control it, once it was drained.

Her body hadn't developed a natural immunity to her powers, so it was causing her to become sterile. Pym made her the suit that helped her body heal the deficiency.

She recently had breast cancer, which has since gone into remission.

I love me some Firestar, but the hair and long gloves and boots on the cover of the preview give me a very Jean-esque Phoenix vibe, at least aesthetically. I have been a fan of hers since Spider Man and His Amazing friends, and the episodes that explained that she was once an X-men make me think that she was a taking over Jean's role, maybe because Phoenix at the time would have been too violent for the show. Still, it is really nice to see Miss Angelica Jinx with the X-men. I would love to see a comfrontation with Emma... Or what if adult Cyclops lusts after her? That Firestar miniseries from the 80's is still one of my favorite reads!

Well, Emma had already apologized to Firestar in Generation X #59 and she clearly accepted the apology of her.

In Young Allies #6 Firestar burnt down the apartment of Emma and unleashed the fatal fireblast at her. Emma would probably be killed if she hadn't turned into the diamond form fast enough. And Emma just was trying to suggest her to join the X-Men and helping her to balance her life. Eventually, Firestar showed her appreciation to Emma.

Omega level mutants can control matter/energy at a molecular level so far she hasn't displayed this ability.
