When Prometheus handed ''Homo erectus'' the gift of fire, he did not just give humanity the light of science, reason, progress, invention, technology, and ergo the power to rival {{God}}, but also the means to dispatch just about any monster imaginable. Considering how Myth/GreekMythology is a FantasyKitchenSink full of all kinds of abominations, that was a ''good thing.'' The symbolism behind this has to do with fire's associations with [[FirePurifies purification]] and {{light|IsGood}}, and partly because it represents humanity's dominion over the natural world. More literally, a burning stick was humankind's first effective defence against nocturnal predators, with an added bonus of extermination of parasites in food. The fact that burn pain is one of the strongest kinds of pain a human being can experience probably doesn't hurt either.

* In Franchise/{{Superman}} storyline ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'' a crook tries to torch Superman with a flamethrower. It would seem it is his standard operating procedure since he holds that it always works and he is actually shocked when Superman doesn't get burned.

** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', Superman gets forced to fight Comicbook/MartianManhunter, and although he doesn't want to kill J'onn, he knows fire weakens Martians, so he uses his heat vision to ignite the ground around them, and then he punches J'onn out.

*** Walker's preferred fighting method seems to be lighting people on fire. Later on, he uses flammable fluid as a method of intimidation, a spray can and a lighter to defend himself from rogue Dollars members, [[spoiler:and he sets Ran Izumii on fire ''again''. ''Twice.'']]. It's especially ironic because of his day job as an ice sculptor.

* ''CrimsonSkies'' has an aircraft in it called the Blackflag ''[[MeaningfulName Firestorm]].'' The plane earned that particular name when one of the first prototype fighters' guns were loaded with magnesium rounds and it spread so much fire across the sky that onlookers had thought the air itself had burst into flames.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter generally has powers on par with ComicBook/{{Superman}}, plus a few extra--but [[WeaksauceWeakness he's not fireproof]]. DC seems to [[YoYoPlotPoint keep going back and forth]] on whether this is a physical vulnerability or a psychological problem.
