Comment: This is not the story that appeared in THE FLASH #294-296.  The Typhoon has the same powers and looks the same, but the identities and origin are different.  The plots bear no resemblence to each other.  Despite the similarities in the two stories, though, this story contains such important elements to the Firestorm saga (such as the revelation that Firestorm draws his power from cosmic rays, and the first appearances of Jefferson and Summer Day) that we have chosen to include it in the canon.
 After this story, Firestorm battles an alien spore in FURY OF FIRESTORM #37 (flashback), teams up with Superman to fight Killer Frost in DC COMICS PRESENTS #17, and is inducted into the Justice League and helps them fight the Satin Satan in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #179-180.
