    However, unlike Peter Parker who acts as the measuring stick by which all other hard-luck heroes are compared, Jason ends up feeling a bit too self-serving, which in turn makes it a little tough to become overly involved in his pressing need to secure the money he needs. Still, the issue does act as an effective introduction to his world, and while it's done in a confusing manner, the Firestorm elements entrance into his world makes for a solid little mystery. ChrisCross' art is pretty solid, as while his style is clearly suited to the delivery of the high energy moments, he does a credible job conveying the various emotional hurdles that our hero encounters.
