Firestar had an awful origin story
« on: August 23, 2018, 07:40:26 PM »
This character was made for the cartoon Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. I've seen the episode called "A Firestar is Born", That was by far one of the worst superhero origin stories ever written, has anyone else seen that cruel poorly written crap episode.

In the origin, She started out as a young girl named Angelica Jones, who was bullied by a girl named Bonnie calling her "Miss Angelica Jinx" due to bad things mysteriously happening whenever she was around (mainly do to Angelica's powers). It got more annoying as Bonnie got far too obsessed with making fun of Angelica and held an endless grudge even going out of her way to frame Angelica, Bonnie's hatred of Angelica came off as creepy like the obsessed hate of Sonic's blue arms in Sonic Boom. Bonnie wanted to grow up having to pick on someone all her life?. Angelica had to deal with Bonnie from childhood to late adolescence, The character Bonnie also hated Angelica for being poor and wanted to ruin her life.

Funny that the writers ignored this episodes story and never added it to the Marvel Earth 616 continuity, Bonnie was never added to the comics either showing how lame she was.

What do Marvel fans think of this characters origin.

I remember LOL, thanks for bringing me down memory lane. As a kid, I enjoyed the Spider-Man animated series so much I went back and watched the older Spidey shows.

Awful origin, fun show lol

It's just the typical 80's bully.  It was common at the time.

Bonnie was such an obsessive weirdo bully taking it too far.

Spider-Man and his amazing Friends is a good show, I just hated "A Firestar is born" episode.
