While working on repairing a down power line, a lineman is struck by a sun bolt, then picked up by a Professor Rand, who harnesses the power to make this individual one of the most powerful people on Earth. He names himself Firebrand, then heads out to stop a man named Rimmer from securing vital arms, such as tanks, guns and trucks, in order to capture a sub treasury filled with unimaginable wealth that he plans on taking to South America.

Indexer Notes

Only appearance, next appears as Ray O'Light in All-New Short Story Comics #1. An illustrated blurb in the last panel of the story intimates that Firebrand will return to the pages of Yankee Comics, but he doesn't.
