After the apparent death of Ronnie Rayond (Firestorm I) at the hands of the Shadow Thief utilizing the sword of the Shining Knight, the essence and power of Firestorm sought a new host.

Traveling on a remote road to deliver a package for a known criminal - financially struggling student Jason Rusch was bathed in a blinding light. Regaining consciousness Rusch went on to deliver his package only to be caught up in a gambling related shootout. The stress activated a defense mechanism and Rusch merged with a dying man and was transformed into Firestorm.
