Powers/Abilities: Firefist possesses miniature flame-throwers in the gauntlets of his uniform which can spray his opponents with fire. These blasts are powerful enough to tear through stone walls.





History: The background of the killer known as Firefist is unknown. He stated his beliefs thusly: "America is no longer the greatest nation on this earth! It is being ruined, poisoned and weakened by the unwanted and unwashed! Anyone who does not contribute to the benefit of his society does not deserve to live in that society!" His first known operations were the slayings of homeless people in New York City.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#225)- As Firefist prepared to execute another homeless man, he was attacked by the Green Goblin and Spider-Man. The Green Goblin brought the man to safety, while Spider-Man fought Firefist. Firefist nearly killed Spider-Man for interfering, but Spider-Man was saved at the last minute by the Green Goblin, giving Spider-Man the chance he needed to strike Firefist unconscious. He then webbed Firefist up for the police.




Comments: Created by Tom DeFalco, Sal Buscema and Bill Sienkiewicz.
