Ash

    (Event, 1994-1996)
™ and ©1996 Invisible College, Inc.

Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti’s Ash has one of the more complicated origin stories in comics. The title character is Ashley Quinn, a fireman who “probably died” while saving a child from a burning building. He was revived, however, by the unexpected intervention of a futuristic warrior named Gunther DelSandiago.

Gunther (“Gun”) had been leader of the few human survivors in the Devolutionary War. Their enemy was Adam—an alien who arrived on Earth in Quinn’s time, and had been conducting genetic experiments on the populace that would eventually result in the creation of a new race. A century later, this race would enslave and annihilate mankind. Gun’s final plan was to stop this by changing the past. Accordingly, he sent a regenerative unit back into the past which to heal Ashley, giving him power over fire, and endowing him with a mission to save the future from Adam.
