Bio: A Soviet research scientist who was given powers similar to those of Firestorm during the Chernobyl accident. He needs a containment suit to contain the living flame that engulf his body so that it does not destroy him.
During the time where Professor Stein was missing and believed to be deceased, Pozhar became a part of the Firestorm matrix with Ronnie Raymond, however this version of Firestorm behaved as if it were not controlled by either Mikhail or Ronnie.
Following his separation from Ronnie, Mikhail was believed to have returned to his family and retired from superheroics, until he recently paid a visit to Lorraine Reilly in her office.
