They say that the past is another country, and nowhere is that more true than in the comics of the Golden Age. It was a time of wild inventiveness, an era where gawds came down from Olympus and stood shoulder to shoulder with guys who just thought it would be cool to put on a bear suit. It was a time when The Clown was a villain, but Black Satan was a hero, and neither of them really had a costume. It was a time when Pyroman had electrical powers, Navy Jones was inexplicably able to breathe water with no explanation, and a time when today’s headliner hero made his debut and led us to today’s nomenclatural query?
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is fine if you already know, but if you don’t, play fair, asking: Without Googling, what powers do you think a hero called Fire-Man has?
