I am liking seeing Firestorm featured regularly on DC's Legends of Tomorrow. I can understand why Ronnie Raymond is no longer part of the matrix due to events on The Flash, but I still don't get why the producers invented a new character in Jefferson Jackson rather than using Jason Rusch from the comics. It's frustrating to see the plot hoops that are jumped through to keep Firestorm out of action - The limitations of a TV show, I suppose. When he does show up, the only powers he seems to display are flight and throwing fire - which when paired with his helmetless head makes him come off more as a Human Torch rip off than Firestorm. Hopefully, they will update both his costume and power set soon.
