    Description

    Super Friends Firestorm Production Cel and Master Background Setup (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1980s). Hard to believe this hulking superhero is supposed to be a teenager! (To be fair, he is supposed to be two different people fused together - maybe this accounts for his large size.) Firestorm, the Nuclear Man, is a character we don't see often in animation art. He was brought into the world of the Super Friends in the mid-80s, along with many other previously unused characters, both hero and villain. This great image of him in his original vintage costume measures nearly the entire width of the cel, at 9" high. The cel is placed over a hand-painted Master background. (It is unknown whether this is a Key Master.) The background is painted in gouache on smooth watercolor paper and depicts the interior of the Hall of Justice - with its many instrument panels and blinking lights. Painted image area is 13" x 10". With slight handling, it is in Very Good condition. Cel has minor flecks of red paint adhesion on front, near Firestorm's shoulder, possibly from the way in which it was stored originally; it is in Very Good condition.
