Wizkids previews Firestorm, Firestorm and Fury

WizKids, for their preview today for their Justice League set, previews Firestorm, Firestorm and Fury. And no, that's not a typo (nor is it one in the headline, either).



From the preview:

For today’s DC HeroClix: Justice League set previews, we head back to the classroom and visit with two teenagers who don’t have a lot in common except when they change into the superhero known as Firestorm!

A quick look at the character cards for both versions of Firestorm show that they have a trait, which we’ll discuss in detail later. You’ll also notice that both characters have the same combat values on their dials and share a lot of the same names for their standard powers.
