June 11th, 2016: Snowflame

Before the big one, WW II, entertainment for kids was pretty much limited. The comics in the newspaper,
radio and comic books. Those were limited for a lot of kids. Then in the post war years TV.
OMG, what an amazing thing. But most households it was limited to evenings with the whole fam damily,
watching what Mom and Dad wanted. Saturday morning cartoons came along and that was fun.
Then video games, but Mom had a secret formula that told her when it was time to, "go out and play".
Harrumph, probably had a date with Sybian.
Comic books were getting desperate by the '80s and would try anything.

Comics are littered with weird and obscure heroes and villains with powers that range from the mundane
to the ridiculous, but there’s one character that ranks among the most “interesting” ever conceived-
Snowflame, a villain with powers that were intrinsically linked to the character taking copious amounts
of cocaine. As the character himself explained in the comic...
“I am Snowflame, every cell of my being burns with white hot ecstasy.
Cocaine is my god! And I am the human instrument of its will!”



Snowflame was conceived as a villain by DC writer Steve Englehart for an incredibly short-lived comic series called
“The New Guardians”, appearing in just one of the series’ eventual 12 total issues. The New Guardians were a
superhero team comprised of some of DC’s more obscure heroes and, according to the first issue, were specifically
chosen to be an accurate representation of the various segments of the human race. It was also noted that the
ultimate goal of the New Guardians was to pass on their genetically superior genes to the next generation.
They came for the women. OK, but did they have to take the best ones?
