Earth 10: Firestorm

Johnny Lu is a high school student with aspirations of joining the US Olympic Taekwondo team. Master Bai is a Taoist Alchemist who was preparing to ascend out of this level of existence. When Johnny stumbled across Kobra goons trying to interfere with Bai's ascendance the conflict scrambled everything. Bai is still in the material realm, but either he or Lu can fuse their bodies together into the being known as Firestorm, a human Taoist philosopher's stone who can fly, become a living spirt, transmute matter and manipulate physical and spiritual energy. Bai doesn't know why this happened, but as taken the task of forging Johnny's rambunctious spirit via good acts as his ultimate challenge.

Firestorm is one of those characters that I think I love more than the player does. Dylan was looking to go back to a fire wielding martial artist since he likes that skill set, and we kicked things around enough to end up with this version of Firestorm. He hits the bill as a fire wielding martial artist so Logan is happy, but if I were playing I would be totally all over the Taoist transmutation/alchemy elements. I’m ashamed to admit that it took me way to long to realize the alchemy character’s metaphor should be issues of Integration, but there you go.
