Firefly is a name used by three pyromaniac supervillains in the DC Universe. The first Firefly was Garfield Lynns, a pyromaniac super-villain who fights Batman. Formerly a visual effects expert working in the movie business, he turned to crime using a flame-proof winged suit after he was unable to stop his destructive compulsions. His obsession with fire is the result of an abusive childhood. He has been a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains.

The second Firefly was a wealthy man from Gotham City named Ted Carson. The third person who adopted the criminal identity of Firefly was a woman named Bridgit Pike. She was created for the Gotham TV Series and was later introduced into the comics as Lady Firefly.

Firefly was created by France Herron and Dick Sprang, first appearing in Detective Comics #184. (1952).
