Firebug is a legacy name used by several arsonists and super-villains in the DC Universe, usually antagonists to Batman and the Batman Family. The original was Joseph Rigger, a former soldier who turned to crime after his family died in building-related accidents. His successors included Harlan Combs and a third unnamed Firebug both also residing in Gotham City. Firebug was created by Len Wein and Irv Novick, first appearing in Batman #318. (1979)
