SECRET ORIGINS (1986) (#1-50) (DC) #4 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Secret Origins (1986) #4
Many super-hero origins begin with a sickly teenager who is picked on by bullies until some incredible transformation gives them the power to fight back. Perhaps it's a theme borrowed from the old Charles Atlas advertisements, or maybe it's a chord that resonates with what's seen as the typical comic book fan. Whatever the motivation, the downtrodden weakling turned superhuman powerhouse storyline is very much in effect in the history of Firestorm, the Nuclear Man.

Professor Martin Stein and Ronnie Raymond combine to form Firestorm but it's Stein's life that is focused on here. From his days at university in the 1960s being pushed around by the big man on campus to his struggles much later in life with alcoholism and failed marriage, Martin Stein has fought a constant battle to overcome the physical world with the power of his magnificent mind. But until radical anti-nuclear extremists trapped him and Raymond together in a nuclear blast, the meek doctor never had the ability to really fight back against life's injustices! "The Secret Origin of Firestorm, the Nuclear Man" is written by Gerry Conway and drawn by George Tuska and Pablo Marcos.
