Fans who were excited to finally see DC Comics’ Nuclear Man brought to life onscreen last season on The Flash were likely shocked when the show’s second season kicked off with the death of Ronnie Raymond. While Dr. Martin Stein, Firestorm’s more cerebral half survived, there’s no nuclear hero without Ronnie…is there?
The DC Entertainment family is deeply saddened by the loss of Murphy Anderson.
Anderson was a giant in the comics industry and one of the driving forces in the evolution of not only DC Comics, but the Silver Age of comics in general. As one of the great artists and inkers at DC Comics, his style helped define the DC look in the Silver Age, and brought to life some of DC Comics’ most prolific characters, including Adam Strange, Atomic Knight, Hawkman and Zatanna, as well as his genre-defining collaborations with Superman artist Curt Swan.
