History:
As a child Jason loved playing with fires and matches. He would light up trash cans, weeds, his toys, anything he thought might make that wonderful pop sound he loved. At the age of 17 Jason was well know for setting fires, so when the local church burnt down and took half his neighborhood Jason was the prime suspect. He didn’t start the fire though, it was the local bully Alex Masterson and his little gang. They knew that they could burn down the church for a laugh and blam it on Jason, and that’s exactly what they did. Jason was arrested and with the witnesses of Alex and his friends was sentenced to 10 years in jail.

Jason’s life in jail was hard, and there was nothing he could burn. Jason was able to work in the prison cafeteria. He thought be finely found his way to play with the flames again, lighting the burners on the stove. On his first shift that’s exactly what he did. He played, he started a fire that burnt the kitchen, the prison, the other inmates and himself. In the chaos a badly burn Jason escaped the prison with a few other inmates.

One of the other escaped inmates was James Barton a.k.a Acid-Trail. James had connections with Boss Holiday, a very well known crime boss who specialized in costumed criminals. James helped a badly burn Jason by taking him to one of Holidays safe houses. Holiday’s people tended to Jason’s wounds and helped him recuperate. The only condition for the help was Jason would now work for Boss Holiday when he was well.

Jason Eagleson was given a fire creating flamethrower-suit, on that day Burn was born. Burn is now one of Boss Holiday’s most loyal generals in his small army of costumed  criminals.

    NICE! I love the retro design, and a classic supervillain origin to go with it. Burn and The Wall should team up. 🙂

    Big bubble heads are always cool!
    And I like the costume’s colors.
    I don’t know about the cape. It looks very Neal Adams-ey, which is great, but the cape interferes, I think.
    Very cool.

    Very cool design, Ralph. I, too love the bubble head, but I actually dig the cape being short. Wouldn’t want that thing catchin’ on fire.
