Fireball. Ted Tyler, a firefighter, is knocked out by an arsonist and left to die in a burning lab. But the unconscious Tyler is bathed in a chemical which gives him the power to absorb and control fire. On awakening he decides to become a crime-fighter, focusing on those who would use fire for evil purposes. He can control and absorb fire and is so hot that bullets melt against his body. The enemies he fights are ordinary humans. He appears in stories with titles like ”Arson, Incorporated,” “The National Defense Murders,” and “The Sailboat Smugglers.”
