    He's immune to his own powers. Most heroes kind of are (Firestar is an exception that comes to mind...her radiation powers gave her cancer).

Yikes! I didn't know that about Firestar.

    And he's immune to heat in general I think. Like if you threw scalding water on him I don't think he would be hurt

I know he can (and does) take scalding hot showers - when he takes them at all. We learned recently that he doesn't need to.

But I don't know if he has to consciously absorb the heat. He may. In which case, scalding water that was thrown on him from behind with no warning might burn him. I don't know.

    (but I bet he can get chemical burns from say acid).

I would have to think you're right.

    His cells were mutated by cosmic rays and are able to process fire so presumably his hair wouldn't be any different.


    Kind of wonder what would happen if he donated his hair to locks of love. Would cancer patient kids who get Johnny's hair be fire resistant or would they be bursting into flame?

Now that's fascinating!

Take this one step further. Do his cells hold the secret of perfect insulation from heat? Consider the many commercial applications. Reed (if he were around) could make millions if not billions just from that one opportunity. For example, incoming rocket craft burn intensely hot upon reentry into our atmosphere. Insulating the craft from that heat is a serious engineering problem. Could Johnny's cells hold the secret to solving that problem more elegantly than ever before?
