    I was really expecting the whole time that he’d somehow accidentally catch himself on fire… for shame.
    I got so excited when those sparks fell on his fingers!

    Kind of neat, but a “Don’t try this at home” type thing.
    I am surprised he didn’t burn his house down. Let’s hope someone was standing nearby with a fire extinguisher.

    There was a fire extinguisher on the floor next to the pumpkin.

    I am sure it would be hard to get that into a Con, but could you imagine the show if he did.

    but pyro doesn’t have a mutant ability to shoot flames from his wrist, only to control flames that have already been generated.

    i just had to point it out

      Pyro DOES, however, wear wrist-mounted flame throwers.

        They aren’t flame throwers, they just make a tiny flame that he then can control. magneto had it built for him when he almost got beaten and couldn’t quick draw some kind of defense. he could just as well carry around a Bic or zippo, but wheres the fun in that?

    That is so awesome – this guy could totally use these to be a vigilante or something.
