It looks like DC is re-thinking their most recent Firestorm comic series by getting it back to the "traditional one hero with two identities" concept and a costume closer to the classic look. I have confidence in the talents of Dan Jurgens and definitely think this is a good move. It will be interesting to see where Luke Cage and Danny Rand wind up once the Marvel Now initiative begins. They have been hanging with the Avengers and Defenders for a while now, but with Marvel apparently wanting to look closer to their movie counterparts, I'm not sure if that will still be the case.
I liked the idea behind this cover but must confess that I didn't consider the ramifications when I first created it. What would the merged hero be called? Iron Man is already taken, so that would leave us with... Power Fist? That just doesn't sound right.
