History: After his parents died in a car crash, the boy who would grow up to become Fireball was raised by his father's friend, "Uncle" Peter Flint, who had been the World War II spy Codename: Warlord. Flint taught the boy to hunt, to shoot and to fight, and perhaps unsurprisingly, when the lad reached adulthood he followed his mentor into the spy trade.

Comments: Fireball's appearance was allegedly based on actor Peter Wyngarde, who was well known in the U.K. during the 1970s for playing dashing secret agent Jason King. When Bullet editor Pete Clark wanted to shoot some real-life photos of Fireball, he had staff member Gary Fraser pose for the pictures.
