Martin Stein was a brilliant scientist who also acted as one half of the duo that made up the hero Firestorm. Originally, Stein was bonded to Ronnie Raymond before bonding to his second partner 'Jax' Jackson.


  • Firestorm Matrix: When Martin merged with Ronnie Raymond or Jefferson Jackson, the two created the nuclear-powered being Firestorm. The Firestorm Matrix was controlled by two individuals when they achieved physical contact, and merged them into a singular being.
    • Psychic Link: While the two were merged into Firestorm, Jefferson could hear Martin Stein's voice in his head.[5]
    • Radiation Production: Firestorm was virtually a living nuclear reactor, and as such, created great amounts of nuclear radiation inside his body. This allowed him to harness the energy emitting from his either his own body or any near energy sources.[5]
    • Pyrokinesis: Firestorm was able to produce nuclear energy in the form of fire from his body. He could use his control over the energy to project it in the form of concussive blasts.[5]
      • Thermal-Blast: Firestorm could project powerful "nuclear blasts" of fire from his hands.[5]
      • Flight: Firestorm was capable of projecting his flames downward, granting himself the ability to fly at great speeds.[5]
    • Energy Absorption: Firestorm was capable of absorbing nuclear energy, as shown when he absorbed the blast from a nuclear warhead.[6]
    • Molecular Reconstruction: Firestorm could use his nuclear energy to break up the molecular structure of elements and rearrange them, allowing him to transmutate objects. He was capable of transmutating a meteor into water.[7]


Other Characteristics

  • Kinemortophobia: Martin had a crippling fear of zombies; to the point where he can't even say the term.

  • Martin Stein was born in 1950.[11]
  • When Ronnie was his other half of Firestorm, Martin craved pizza due to Ronnie's love of it.
  • He was only able to become Firestorm outer form once, due to switching bodies with his second fusee Jax.
    • As Stein noted his advanced age limited him.
