So basically some writers just mixed him up with Captain Atom, since that's what Atom has done before, though more specifically blew up a universe as Monarch when Superbitch Prissy busted open his containment suit in Countdown. Yet another DC series that was pure putrid bile. But really, Firestorm is pretty much a glass cannon. He can be incredibly powerful when written competently, but he's also rather fragile as well. I think one of his earliest weaknesses was that he couldn't affect organic matter. But I'm sure he's either outgrown that or writers just forgot he even had that limitation.

I'd say it depends on what your definition of Glass Canon is. Is he as Durable as Superman, No. but I wouldn't call him glass. And he can affect organic matter, always has been able to, he usually just chooses not to.

Firestorm can control his own body structure with his powers and was able to punch out Kalibak. He is not a glass cannon.

I think he means that his destructive capability does not match his durability, which when your destructive capability is Universal... well that's understandable. Can Firestorm make himself more durable, yeah, but it takes a consious effort, still even without augmentation he's pretty tanky.

It's not confirmed he has universal ability. When you have 30 people writing the character and none of them agree on what he can do, the limit of his abilities changes with every person and some, like I said, seem to confuse him with Captain Atom. Nvm that no less than three people have been Firestorm. Hell, even Desaad stole that power for a bit in Countdown. It's just another character DC can't write consistently. And by all accounts, Major Force and several others should all be on the same level as Captain Atom, yet are never portrayed that way despite having pretty much the exact same powers.

Moving on from that, We still need some Warcraft characters fighting. Hell I still think Thrall should fight Aang.

And Illidan needs to get in too, most of all. He's just best character.

So, has anyone else played Prey and understand the connection between Alex and Morgan I am going for?

Spoiler
The fact that neither are the humans they appear as and they don't know it in the beginning. The real Alex and Morgan are dead. Neither is actually human. Alex is really that virus and Morgan is a Typhoon. Both also have shapeshifting capabilities.

If you're supposed to list connections, then I guess I'll do the same for original cartoon Cyborg vs Kaneki.
Spoiler
They both go through life threatening accidents that require immediate surgery. Although alive and now powerful, they were both essentially half a man afterwards. They both constantly struggle to maintain their humanity and not be defined by their other side.


If you're thinking why just cartoon Cyborg, he's probably the most famous incarnation, and because most of the other ones stomp.

Well, at the time of my posting this, Samurai Jack is less than a day away from being finished. So, who should he face in Death Battle? The most popular options I've seen for him is:

Afro Samurai (Afro Samurai)
Mugen (Samurai Champloo)
Himura Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin)
Next time on Death Battle:
