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.

Captain Marvel and Plastic Man were owned by other companies at first. DC purchased them later.

Ross doesn't consider Firestorm a "classic" JLA character. He probably thinks of him the same way as many people think of JLA characters like Vibe or Fire. His idea of the ideal League is the League from the late 60's/early 70's, with Captain Marvel and Plastic man thrown in.
