    Chris Batista brings a clear, but decidedly less energetic style to the table as he steps in to replace ChrisCross. Now the upside to his arrival is the material is much easier to follow, from the opening sequence where we learn how the original Firestorm is connected to the new version of the character, to the scene where Firestorm uses his powers to put the screws to a racist cop. The art also does a pretty solid job with the new design elements of Firestorm, with the fire effect being a particularly effective visual. However, the art isn't quite as impressive when it comes to its delivery of the big impact moments, as the "death" of the original Firestorm was deserving of a more dramatic visual, and the scene where he was sneaking around the JLA Watchtower could've done a better job of capturing the sense of wonder that the place was supposed to be projecting.
