> As I look at the JLA banners on this Message Board I see that the only member of the original Justice League of America missing is Firestorm. He also happens to be my favorite Justice Leaguer ever so it's kind of sad. I guess I really go for the underdog.

That's because Alex Ross is not really a Firestorm or Elongated Man fan. Any time he can substitute Plastic Man for Elongated Man, he will. As for Firestorm, if the JLAer did not appear before the end of the 1960s, Ross usually doesn't paint them with the original icons. However, Ross is great at depicting B, C, D and F league superheroes for other comic book companies.

I'm just curious. Which characters are you referring to from other companies? And why does he never draw Firestorm & hate drawing Elongated Man.
