Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Firestorm Joins JLA!
During the Bronze Age, each issue of DC Comics contained an in-house promotional page called “Daily Planet”. The modern equivalent would be the Channel 52 strips or the DC Comics All Access pages. Typical Daily Planet editions included information on upcoming releases or feature articles. The February 25, 1980 edition appearing in Brave and the Bold #162 announces Firestorm is joining the JLA at the suggestion of Superman. It goes on to explain that Ronnie Raymond, a.k.a. Firestorm the Nuclear Man is the youngest hero ever to join the group. Plus, our hero finds himself in the midst of a crisis involving the Satin Satan! All this and more in Justice League of America #179 on sale March 10, 1980. Also in the Daily Planet you catch a glimpse of the cover to that issue by Jim Starlin. Click the image below to enlarge.
