Scott Fischer was a member of the Doom Patrol.


As a child, he was exposed to toxic waste, which activated his metahuman power: a burning energy touch radiating from his hands, requiring him to wear special gloves at all times. His exposure to the radioactive waste also caused him to develop leukemia, though with treatment it remained in remission for most of his life.

Doom Patrol

Fischer joined the Patrol to help get better control over his powers. At the time, the lineup consisted of the Chief, Celsius, Robotman, Negative Man, Tempest, Lodestone and Karma.

He died because his leukemia re-emerged during the Metahuman Crisis when the massive Gene Bomb was detonated by the Dominators over the Earth.


  • Energy Projection: Scott Fischer has a burning aura coming from his hands that inflicts great pain on anyone he touches. This has been shown to be capable of varying intensities, sometimes smoldering and occasionally flaring up greatly.


  • Power Instability: As a consequence, he is forced to wear special gloves while not in action.

  • His official superhero codename is Blaze although he never actually uses it. It was only given in the letter column of Doom Patrol (Volume 2) #12, suggested by a fan named Charles J. Sperling.
