WATCH FOR STEPPENWOLF: Real Life Aussie Fire Tornado Proves Darkseid Is On His Way

They say you don't know Darkseid's conquered your planet 'till the grounds spewing fire and your neighbour's giving birth to a Parademon. Well here in Australia, we've definitely got the first part covered. Knowing the Aussie summer is quickly approaching and looking to snap up valuable beachfront property to soak it all up from, it's only natural Darkseid tries to take over 'down-under' first.

One in a series of actual Fire Tornadoes, these natural beasties (which some allege were instead created by a rouge named "Mother Nature") were luckily caught on film.



You heard it here folks. Either start saying "Darkseid is" or pack the car and head for the hills - mint condition comics and kids first.

  1. I don't know about Darkseid coming, but those fire tornadoes are cool as fucking hell! True, I'm not there, and don't have to worry about my house and property getting blazed out by one of those things.

    That is the first I've ever heard of a fire tornado though:o

    Damn, maybe you really do need a Pyro or a Firestorm out there during that season to keep an eye on those buggers:)

  2. Thanks Dale! Yup summer gets pretty hot in Oz... yet with beaches like Bondi, Manly, Freemantle and the Gold Coast, I think we'd attract the Human Torch before Pyro... can just see him blasting into one of these huh?

    Def cool but if it got outta hand around bush as dry as in the clip, it really would become a witch for all those real life heroes / firepeople to defeat all too easily. M.N is scary like that, ain't she?

  4. Those things look frighful! Hope everyones okay down there in Aussie land, I cant imagine anything worse than a fire in the bush [well, under da right circumstances] so Id be heading for cover.
    That clip reminds me of all those cheesy movies on the Sci-Fi channel where thunderstorms, earthquakes, etc are ravaging the planet and only that guy from Hercules The Incredible Journeys and his runaway daughter can save us.

  6. Shlomo, we know if that were really the case, and you were actually "down under" Dan would be in no condition to actually write a column for his blog. :)

    I've never actually seen a Fire Tornado before, but it does look wicked! I've seen plenty of the real kind, and I think these kind of have those beat. Wouldn't really ever want to be in the middle of either, though.

  7. Cheers Karl, yip bush fire season is a pretty scary time in some parts of Oz. When they are finally put out you can drive for miles and miles down the highway and see nothing but ash. Hopefully this year is better and no idiots break the firewise rules.

    Dave, are your powers the reason that second pic kinda looks like the shape of a woman, or is that just Dark Phoenix rising?

    Random coming from NZ I'm more used to the windy kind too. Seeing fire get in on the game like this stuns me to!

  8. I never seen any of them! Lucky me!
    I would want to see any of them up front. But that fire tornado looks wicked!

  9. Glad you liked it Aliera - I try to keep the posts pretty wide ranging. This may be a little outside comics and illustration, but it was so comic like i felt it still fit.

  10. It does fit Dan and it's so intriguing. It's marvelous. I've never even heard of a fire tornado. This real life event makes the unbelivable believable. This reminds me of Elijah and fire from heaven.

  11. well thats what I thought too O.A. I mean for most people these are the works of fiction right? So blending that border makes you realise alot more is possible than the 'real world' will have you think.

    It may be cool to look at, but I definitely wouldn't want to be in its way. I sure hope the people in the area have a fire extinguisher or three. They just might need it.

  13. This makes me run so fast to the nearest safe shelter or climb a ladder of some sort just to spare me from this this horrible scene.

  14. I think run is the right word Adelaide!
