FIRESTORM (1982) #7 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Firestorm #7
"Plastique is Another Word for Fear!" is written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Pat Broderick and Rodin Rodriguez. At an oil storage facility in New Jersey, a terrorist has the police in a stand-off; threatening to blow up the crude, himself and half the Garden State unless the U.S. government ends its gas exploration in Quebec. Ignoring the advice of Professor Stein in his head, the impetuous Firestorm confronts the masked gunman face to face, thinking to call his bluff. But the terrorist isn't bluffing and instead sets off a massive explosion that only Firestorm's greatest efforts can contain. After Firestorm blacks out from his feat, he wakes up staring at his father, Ed Raymond, a reporter for the New York News Express. Unable to tell his dad just who he is, a flummoxed Firestorm flies away.

However, a curvaceous redhead in a form-fitting purple outfit makes sure this isn't the end of the story. Calling herself Plastique, after the highly explosive materials that make up her tight costume, she walks into the offices of the New York News Express later that night. When TV station cameras show up, she makes her demands; the same as those espoused by her fallen comrade. By this time, Ronnie Raymond has split from Prof. Stein and gone to see his father in his office to finally reveal his strange dual identity. But now trapped with a room full of people and no way to change into Firestorm, Ronnie is at loose ends. Prof. Stein has to summon all of his bravery to sneak into the building and douse the lights. That's the chance Ronnie was hoping for and Firestorm emerges to defuse (and defrock) Plastique just in the nick of time!
