Comments: Thanks to Anthony Durrant for providing information about this character. He notes "Maybe this is where they (D.C.) got the idea of Firestorm, the Nuclear Man, being a split personality and being helped by the comforting inner voice of Dr. Martin Stein, the person Ron Raymond merges with to become Firestorm."
