"Any idiot can set fires. It takes a professional to do it right."
―Firefly[src]

Firefly is a criminal from Gotham City who uses a specialized fireproof suit and a flamethrower to commit crime in the city. This eventually made him an enemy of Batman.

Biography[]

Captured by Batman[]

Firefly, working with two others, was contracted to burn down a building in Gotham City. Knowing he was a professional, the two men allowed him to detonate the fire bombs himself. Before he could detonate them, however, Batman intervened. Firefly attempted to burn him with his flamethrower, as well as suffocate him by burning away the oxygen, but Batman used his cape and a respirator. He subsequently began beating Firefly up, destroying his suit and knocking him out.[1]

Behind the Scenes[]

  • Batgirl would have had a character named Ted Carson[2] working under the alias of Firefly, portrayed by Brendan Fraser. According to Fraser, the live-action version of Firefly had the backstory of having served in the military service whose benefits were cut, thus angering him and wanting to burn the system to the ground.[3]
  • Firefly in the DC Extended Universe would have been the third live-action incarnation of the character, following versions portrayed by Andrew Dunbar and both Michelle Veintimilla and Camila Perez.
