  1. Another Conway character, cool…

    • “Tokamak is the identity taken by Henry Hewitt, the Chief Executive Officer of the Hewitt Corporation and high level director in the 2000 Committee, after subjecting himself to a recreation of the accident that created Firestorm” basically, they’ve replaced Firestorm with Barry, though in TV canon both share an origin, lol.
