(Great Lakes Avengers I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Calling himself a superhero, Detroit native Brontosaur Russ joined the Firestarter dating app, "seductively" posing while lounging on a couch.
(Great Lakes Avengers I#4 - BTS) - Wishing to date
another superhero, lawyer Connie Ferrari searched "single super heroes"
in the Detroit area and came across Brontosaur Russ' Firestarter
profile. Repulsed, Connie expressed annoyance to her assistant Amy that
Brontosaur Russ was the best Detroit had to offer and lamented that
once one dated real superheroes, nothing else compared.
Comments: Created by Zac Gorman and Jacob Chabot.
The only art depicting Brontosaur Russ (see main image above) did not show his eyes clearly enough to determine a color. They pretty much just looked like black dots but since normal humans don't have black eyes, I'd guess his eyes were more likely brown in color, which matches the common color found in those with black hair.
I personally think Brontosaur Russ
is hilariously silly. I'd love to see him show up again and actually
join the Great Lakes Avengers!
