    Default Firebrand II (Danette Reilly) Appreciation Thread (2021)

    From the Golden Age Firebrand (Rod Reilly) <orig. Quality Comics> Appreciation 2021 thread:

    So, Thomas created Danette and sidelined Rod Reilly.


    first appearance of Danette: All-Star Squadron Preview in Justice League of America #193 (August 1981)


    Danette becomes Firebrand in All-Star Squadron #5 (January 1982).

    She was definitely a favorite of mine from the great All Star Squadron series. Great character with great powers.

    One of my favorites from that era! I'm a sucker for a character with a cool visual, and a fiery one who isn't totally obscured by her flames (like the Human Torch over at Marvel) is a great one. (And it's a pleasant surprise how much better the male Firebrand's costume looked on her, with a few tweaks.)

    One of my favorites from the All Star Squadron! I wish she were still appearing in stories. Miss many of those characters.
