    Did we really not have a Sunfire Appreciation thread before now? That's a terrible oversight if so.

    I'm surprised that he just got an Appreciation Thread today.

    I really love his costume. Does anybody know where the inspiration came from on the design of his mask?

    I like his Age of Apocalypse uniform more than his classic look.

    And I am absolutely surprised it took this long for Shiro to get his own appreciation thread!

    Well it's Koy Fish mask but beyond that I couldn't tell you.

    I prefer the Aoa look, I like X-Men that look a bit wierd and more than human.

    X-Factor 17 was the last good showing for Sunfire I can remember. Long shot and Sunfire were both written as mind controlled antagonists but neither was jobbed and they looked badass.

    While his old costume was pretty neat, particularly the fish-demon-mask thingie, I really liked his 'new' look.

    In my head, Tadashi, from the Big Hero 6 cartoon, survived the fiery explosion and would have appeared in the next movie, Big Hero 7, with fire powers, although perhaps not with the name 'Sunfire.' But I'm crazy like that.

    Agreed on both things but then again it shows you how irrelevant Sunfire has been of late. Sunfire is like Thunderbird, two founding New-Gen X-Men who both left team very very early on.
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    Didn't think much of him until X-Men#94. Then he went from typical arrogant hot-head to charming hothead. I think besides Thunderbird, poor Shiro's received the least development of the original ANAD.

    I'd take him in any X-book but ideally would like to see him back in UA. Rogue's by herself there now anyway.

    always liked Sunfire. his classic costume is cool and i really liked the AoA look too. wish they would put him back on Uncanny Avengers. but i guess they don't need two fire guys.

    Hate how Soulmire forgot about Sunfire's new, "energy" form:

    I always thought his rejection to joining the X-men was hilarious. He wasn't about the drama.

    WTH, if I had known I would have started this thread a long time ago.

    Always liked Sunfire, wish he would have stayed around longer with the X-Men.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    LOVE the comicbook character Shiro Yoshida aka Sunfire!
    Said character is an asshole but a likable asshole.

    I put the character in the same category as the comicbook characters Prince Namor, Quicksilver and Northstar all three of them likable assholes
    Imperius Rex!
