Mick Rory's life has always been about fire: its beauty, its destructive force…and its ability to net him profit alongside his associates, the Rogues.
Sometimes all it takes is the smallest ember to spark a raging inferno. Mick Rory’s love of fire started innocently enough when he was a small child, but it turned deadly the moment he set his childhood home ablaze and watched from afar as his family was consumed by the flames.
As he grew older, Mick’s pyromania grew uncontrollable. Inspired by Central City’s band of costumed super-villains, the Rogues, Mick invented a handgun-sized flamethrower and a flame-retardant suit for himself. He adopted the code name “Heat Wave” as he began channeling his destructive urges into profit. Eventually, and despite his contentious relationship with the Rogues’ leader, Captain Cold, Mick became an official member of the criminal organization.
Hotheaded and volatile, Heat Wave’s endless need to find an outlet for his peculiar obsession makes him dangerous and unpredictable, but not altogether evil. He’s sometimes turned over new—if slightly charred—leaves at the behest of superheroes, who’ve offered him more productive ways to turn up the heat.
