Powers & Weapons: The Blue Flame is a metahuman with the ability to telekinetically control ambient heat energy, and the physical ability to envelop his entire body or portions of his body with a fiery blue plasma without harming himself. The Blue Flame can generate shapes composed of blue fire from any point on his body. (He normally uses his hands to "mold" the flames.) He can form blue fire into long streams, spheres, or even more complex shapes like letters in skywriting. These flaming objects will only retain their shapes as long as he concentrates upon them. The objects will only burn about 10 seconds before extinguishing. The temperature of these fiery projections is generally around 2,800F (near the melting point of iron). Blue Flame can also harmlessly absorb limited amounts of fire into his own body, as long as he remains aflame.
FOOTNOTE: The Blue Flame is actually an amalgam of two characters, the Flame had a long-running career, and published by Fox Feature Syndicate. The original Blue Flame appeared only once, and was published by Four Star Publications.
