Scorpio's Necessary Evil
Jose Gonzalez was a firefighter in Los Angeles when a lunatic bombed the city. One of the bombs hit the chemical warehouse he was trying to save, drenching him in burning sulfur. As the sulfur dissolved his flesh, Jose became a creature of living fire. Although the chemical reaction with his body has slowed, it has not stopped. It is only a matter of time before he is consumed entirely. Until then he lives as Brimstone, a villain swathed in constant flame.
